    House Judiciary Committee approves impeachment of President Trump and sends to House

    The House Judiciary Committee voted to approve the articles of impeachment against President Trump Friday morning, after more than 14 hours of heated debate on Thursday. It is now nearly certain that Mr. Trump will become the third U.S. president in history to be impeached.

    Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler postponed the final votes on the articles late on Thursday evening, sparking immediate condemnation from Republicans on the committee.

    After gaveling in on Friday morning, the committee immediately began voting on the first article, abuse of power. It passed along party lines, 23 to 17. The committee then moved to the second article, obstruction of justice, which also passed 23 to 17. The proceedings took about seven minutes to complete.

    The articles will now move to the floor for a full House vote next week.

    "Today is a solemn and sad day. 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," Nadler said in a brief statement to reporters after the vote.

    White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham condemned the "desperate charade of an impeachment inquiry."

    "The President looks forward to receiving in the Senate the fair treatment and due process which continues to be disgracefully denied to him by the House," Grisham said in a statement.

    Shortly before midnight Thursday, the committee had passed the procedural amendment that precedes the final vote on the two articles by a voice vote. Nadler's sudden announcement that the final votes would be delayed until Friday took Republicans by surprise.

    Ranking Member Doug Collins called the postponement "inappropriate" on Thursday evening, and argued that Democrats had only moved the vote to get greater media attention.

    "The chairman's integrity is gone," a furious Collins told reporters after the meeting. "Words cannot describe how inappropriate this was."

    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    McConnell is signaling there won't be a trial in the Senate. He has stated he is coordinating with the President's lawyers on how to proceed.

    So after all the talk of coordination between the whistleblower and Schiff, and the screams of sham impeachment proceedings in the House, Trumpism reveals itself with its accusations yet again.

    But they're doing it openly, so that makes it not corruption. Somehow.

    I see Rudy is back from Ukraine criming so the Trump Campaign will have some 2020 crimes to crime.

    I'm sure there will be an explanation of how that's constitutional once he actually does it.

    Who knows. But the Senate Democrats snubbed the Clinton impeachment, and I'm expecting the same this time around.

    You might want to look into the Clinton Senate trial a bit further.

    So that's the plan? Try to undermine the Senate's credibility?

    It's as if you're TRYING to lose next year.
