WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Committee, voting along party lines, on Friday approved articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, charging he abused his power and obstructed Congress.
The panel met for more than 14 hours through debate that split sharply along party lines.
Republicans insisted on votes on a series of amendments aimed at killing the charges against Trump.
Early Friday, Trump tweeted his approval of the Republican effort, calling the GOP lawmakers on the panel "warriors."
The panel is expected to approve the impeachment charges Friday, which would sent them to the full House for a vote next week.
Trump denies doing anything wrong.
