“There will be some announcements tomorrow morning,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) told reporters shortly after a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). ”This is not a happy day ... but I think we are doing what we have to do.”
Engel said lawmakers would hold a news conference at 9 a.m.
The announcement comes after a marathon day of hearings held by the House Judiciary Committee that featured dramatic clashes between Democrats and Republican allies of the president.
It’s unclear how many articles of impeachment will be drafted against the president. Trump has been under scrutiny for months after a whistleblower warned of a pressure campaign against the new president of Ukraine. A parade of current and former U.S. officials have since described an effort to withhold nearly $400 million in military aid from Ukraine unless it promised to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
The Judiciary Committee is expected to mark up the articles on Thursday, Politico reported, citing Democratic lawmakers and aides familiar with the party’s plans.
