Judiciary committee chair calls president's obstruction of congress ‘absolute and without precedent'The House judiciary committee took the first steps on Wednesday toward voting on articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, beginning a marathon two-day session to consider the charges against him.The committee held a rare evening session to put the finishing touches on the articles, which were unveiled Tuesday.It was not expected that lawmakers would make substantial changes to the highly workshopped articles, which charge the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.In his statement opening the special session, the committee chair, Jerrold Nadler, called Trump's obstruction of Congress "complete, absolute and without precedent".He went on to say the impeachment debate should be framed around three questions: "First, does the evidence show clearly that the president committed these acts? "Second, do they rise to the level of impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors? "Third, what are the consequences for our national security, for the integrity of our elections, and for our country if we fail to act?"Dozens of committee members delivered five-minute opening statements one-by-one.

Jim Sensenbrenner called it "the weakest case in history".T
