The House Judiciary Committee is commencing debate Wednesday night on the two narrowly drafted articles of impeachment against Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is scheduled to start the meeting at 7 p.m EDT. The panel is anticipated to hear opening statements from all of its 41 members before recessing until Thursday morning, when it will discuss proposed amendments to the articles before voting on the articles themselves.
That would tee up a full House vote on Trump’s impeachment for next week before Congress breaks for the winter holidays. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) stated Tuesday that he anticipates a trial to begin in his chamber in early January.
