WASHINGTON, DC — The divided House Judiciary Committee passed two articles of impeachment Friday against President Donald Trump, voting along party lines to approve charges that he abused the power of his office and obstructed Congress in a quest to rig the 2020 election.

In back-to-back morning votes, they adopted each charge against Trump by a margin of 23 to 17 over rancorous Republican protest.

U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil, who represents Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district, issued the following statement:

“After reviewing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, my position remains unchanged. I will be voting against the articles when they come to the House floor. This impeachment inquiry has divided the country and jeopardized Congress’ ability to focus on the real issues impacting Americans.”
