WASHINGTON (AP) - Pushing ahead with articles of impeachment, the House Judiciary Committee convenes Monday to formally receive the investigative findings against President Donald Trump as the White House mounts an aggressive attack on the proceedings.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler says he expects the committee to vote soon on charges against Trump that will likely focus on abuse of power on Ukraine and obstruction in the congressional inquiry.


He sent a letter to the White House late Sunday with documents supporting Democrats' case.

If the Judiciary Committee approves articles of impeachment by Friday that would set up a final impeachment vote in the days before Christmas.
