U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday the House would act next week to wrap up its impeachment inquiry, following up on whatever decision is taken on articles of impeachment by the House Judiciary Committee this week.
“Next week we’ll take up something,” Pelosi told reporters as she discussed the timetable for the impeachment inquiry launched by Democrats.
The Panel set up by the House of Representatives is expected to approve impeachment charges against President Donald Trump later in a marathon session of rancorous debate.
The judiciary committee is debating two articles of impeachment alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
A full vote by the Democratic-run House next week will likely make him the third US president ever impeached.
But the Senate, controlled by Trump’s fellow Republicans, is not expected to remove him from office any time soon.
Responding to their plans, the President in a statement on his official twitter handle said: “No crime!.”
