Judiciary Committee abruptly postpones vote on articles of impeachment

by OLIVIA BEAVERS AND MIKE LILLIS -The Hill  |  Published on December 13, 2019

The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee abruptly announced late Thursday that after more than 14 hours of debate the panel would recess and wait until Friday morning to vote on articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) recessed the impeachment articles markup after 11 p.m., saying that the committee would reconvene to cast the impeachment votes Friday at 10 a.m.

With Nadler’s announcement came an audible gasp from both the audience and the Republicans on the dais, who said they had received no warning and were under the impression that Thursday’s marathon hearing would conclude with votes on both articles before midnight, allowing members to start heading home for the weekend.

The outraged Republicans wasted no time blasting Nadler for what they saw as a procedural cheap-shot — one designed solely to allow Democrats more time before the TV cameras on Friday.
