URGENT – Democrats to lay out articles of impeachment Tuesday following contentious hearing

(CNN) — House Democrats plan to move forward with at least two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday, one on abuse of power and the other obstruction of Congress, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. A third article on obstruction of justice is still being debated, and the sources cautioned Monday night that plans were still being finalized. Democrats plan to unveil the articles of impeachment on Tuesday morning and will begin debate on them in the Judiciary Committee on Thursday, the sources said. The Washington Post was first to report on the two impending articles of impeachment. Leaving a meeting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office Monday evening, House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel of New York told reporters there would be an announcement Tuesday morning to lay out articles of impeachment, but wouldn’t get into details about their contents. Engel said he expected the announcement would be made by the key Democratic chairs — Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York, Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California, Financial Services Chair Maxine Waters of California and Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney of New York. “This is not a happy day,” Engel said, “but I think we are doing what we have to do. “
