The House Judiciary Committee has voted to approve both articles of impeachment 23 to 17. Now the articles will move to the house floor.

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler abruptly delayed action on the historic vote late Thursday night. Committee members clashed all day Thursday.

The panel met for more than 14 hours through debate that split sharply along party lines.

Republicans insisted on lengthy debate and votes on a series of amendments aimed at killing the charges against Trump.
