The House Judiciary Committee on Friday morning voted along party lines to pass pass two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, sending them to the full House for historic final votes expected next Wednesday.
The committee favorably recommended charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress to the full House.
Both votes were passed 23-17. One member, Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif, missed the vote, after undergoing a heart procedure earlier this week.
The Judiciary Committee will send both articles - along with an accompanying report - to the House Rules Committee, which is expected to meet on Tuesday to formalize the floor debate on the charges. The House is expected to hold two votes - one on each article of impeachment - on Wednesday. The committee voted briskly in just ten minutes Friday morning, after a raucous and bitter 14-hour debate on the charges Thursday that lasted well into the night.
