Earlier this week, House Democrats submitted two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. The draft was then subjected to a markup by the House Judiciary committee, where both Republicans and Democrats were able to suggest amendments.
President Donald Trump says he’s close to bringing the trade war with China to a close as he nears a deal with Beijing. Tariffs on Chinese goods were set to kick in on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has authorized the creation of the president’s proposed Space Force, via a $738 billion military policy bill. The same piece of legislation also secures paid parental leave for roughly two million federal employees.
