At the tail end of the six hours of debate ahead of the House impeachment vote, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he believes the vote is one of the "worst decisions" Congress has made. McCarthy said the vote decides what "kind of nation we want to be." "Will we let impeachment become an exercise of raw political power, regardless if it damages our country?" McCarthy asked. "Or will we protect the proper grounds and process for impeachment, now and in the future?" Trump has been charged with two articles of impeachment---abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. If passed, the process will then head for a trial in the Senate, where Republicans have a majority. Earlier in the day, the House voted to approve rules for the vote.
