The House Judiciary Committee -led by Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler- officially endorsed two Articles of Impeachment against President Trump Friday; setting the stage for a full vote in the House of Representatives.
“The committee adopted both articles, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, on a party-line vote of 23-17. A final roll call in the full House is expected next week, which could trigger a Senate trial in the new year just as presidential primaries are set to get underway,” reports Fox News.
“Today is a solemn and sad day,” Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., told reporters after the vote. “For the third time in a little over a century and a half, the House Judiciary Committee has voted articles of impeachment against the president — for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House will act expeditiously.”
