House committee nears vote on impeachment articles

U.S. lawmakers moved closer to impeaching Republican President Donald Trump, as members of a House of Representatives committee debated formal charges in a marathon session that began Wednesday night and lasted all day Thursday. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to approve two articles of impeachment, setting up a vote by the Democratic-controlled House next week that is expected to make Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. Trump is charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. If the house votes to impeach, he would then go on trial in the Senate. The Republican-led chamber is unlikely to vote to find the president guilty and remove him from office. Republicans on the Judiciary panel repeatedly complained about the procedures followed by Democrats in the impeachment inquiry, and said Democrats had overplayed their hand in a desperate attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
