After nearly 15 hours of “debate,” that was spread over two-days, the House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the Articles of Impeachment that will be presented to the House for a full floor vote next week, on Friday.
Reaching almost the 12th hour of Thursday’s Markup, Chairman of the Committee Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) halted the proceedings earning more ire from Ranking Member Doug Collins (D-GA).

Pro-tip if you don’t want to be impeached, you should maybe stop committing impeachable offenses.
How do you get Impeached when you have done NOTHING wrong (a perfect call), have created the best economy in the history of our Country, rebuilt our Military, fixed the V.A. (Choice!), cut Taxes & Regs, protected your 2nd A, created Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, and soooo much more? Crazy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2019
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke with Fox News show host Sean Hannity on Thursday and told Hannity that going forward he would coordinate with the President’s lawyers. He goes on to say that the Democrats have a weak case and “we all know how it’s going to end, there’s no chance the President is going to be removed from office,” McConnell tacks on the words “I hope,” there at the end of that sentence.
