Judiciary panel takes first steps toward impeachment vote

President Donald Trump impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee are using a hearing for voting on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, to deliver passionate, personal arguments for and against the move.

They were beginning a marathon two-day session Wednesday to consider the historic charges with a lively prime-time hearing at the Capitol.
