The House Judiciary Committee has approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump after postponing a vote late Thursday night.

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, President Trump tweeted his approval of the Republican effort, calling the GOP lawmakers on the panel “warriors.”

The impeachment charges will now be sent to the full House for a vote next week.

President Trump denies doing anything wrong.
