The House Judiciary Committee voted Friday morning to bring abuse of power and obstruction of Congress articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the House floor for a full vote.

The Democratic House is expected to vote in favor of the articles as well, officially impeaching Trump and putting him on trial in the Republican Senate.

The House of Representatives voted on Thursday to affirm the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, further bolstering the likelihood that Trump will be fully impeached by the House before the end of the year.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) doesn't, either, but he gives it a shot in a bizarre 14 minute speech on the senate floor.

Before the government shutdown orchestrated by President Donald Trump in an attempt to force Democrats to fund his pet project, the President met in the Oval Office of the White House with Democratic leaders Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Representative Nancy Pelosi of California.

While the GOP barely maintained their status quo in the Senate—where only nine Republicans were up for reelection compared to 22 Democrats—during the 2018 midterms, the Democrats took back the House gaining 40 seats. Pelosi—the only woman to ever serve as Speaker of the House—stood poised to resume that role and block Trump's border wall funding.
