Debate on articles of impeachment against President Trump to begin Wednesday

WASHINGTON – House Democrats plan to begin debating Wednesday two articles of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, setting up a constitutional clash between the two branches of government that has only happened three times before.

Hours after Democrats announced the articles of impeachment Tuesday, they scheduled a Wednesday evening meeting of the House Judiciary Committee to consider them.

The committee plans to begin debating the articles at 7 p.m. Wednesday and resume at 9 a.m. Thursday. No deadline was set for a final committee vote. If approved, the full House could vote on the articles as early as next week.

The accusations against Trump closely track the Intelligence Committee's findings about Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. The panel found Trump withheld a meeting and military aid from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky while pressuring his counterpart to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
