The White House is handing out Christmas cards as the House debates impeachment

It seems nothing is going to stop the White House from handing out Christmas cards — not even the looming impeachment of the president. 

As the House of Representatives began debating two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress —against President Trump on Wednesday morning, White House staffers began handing out Christmas cards to members of the Senate.

Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, tweeted a photo and description of the "package" he received today. Not only did senators get a White House Christmas card, but they also got a copy of Trump's scathing letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi protesting his impeachment. 

"True story: there is a White House staffer going around the Senate delivering to each office, as a package, the incoherent, scathing Pelosi letter AND...wait for it...a giant 16x12 White House Christmas card (along with, implausibly, a second smaller Christmas card)," Murphy said. "What a day."

Representatives are expected to vote on each article this evening, CNN reported. If the vote passes, Trump will become the third president in history to be impeached.
