WASHINGTON — House Democratic leaders are eyeing a vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump as early as the middle of next week, Assistant House Speaker Katherine Clark said Friday. So we can use procedural tools to get articles of impeachment to the floor for a House vote quickly," Clark, D-Mass., said on CNN’s "New Day." Asked how early the House Judiciary Committee could bring the articles to the floor, Clark said, "That will be...as early as mid-next week." An impeachment floor vote in the middle of next week would give the Senate only a week to hold a trial before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., signaled Friday that he's open to potentially convicting Trump and removing him from office if the House impeaches Trump.

Hundreds of President Donald Trump's supporters swarmed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, leaving the halls of Congress with broken windows, vandalized walls and ransacked offices. Stolen and damaged items were reported in elected officials' offices, including the wood and gold placard above House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office. Around the Capitol complex, things have been damaged and lots of glass has been broken. What happened today was an assault by the domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol, but it was also an assault on our constitution. Trump spent the day inciting and praising a mob that stormed the Capitol, prompting Twitter and Facebook to lock him out of his accounts.

WASHINGTON — House Republicans received an email Monday from a White House aide that showed a graphic critical of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and said that it was sent at the request of President Donald Trump. The email was from Molly A. Michael, special assistant to the president and Oval Office operations coordinator, according to two House Republicans who received the email. The email suggested Trump is good for the Republican Party and led to the re-elections of GOP members. The email was sent after a meeting between the president and House Republicans Monday about "fighting back" against unfounded claims of voter fraud. Requests for comment from McConnell's office and the White House were not immediately returned.

WASHINGTON — After months of stalemate, Congress struck a deal on a nearly $900 billion Covid-19 relief package that includes a new round of direct payments and help for jobless Americans, families and businesses struggling in the pandemic. "More help is on the way," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. said Sunday evening on the Senate floor. "Moments ago, in consultation with our committees, the four leaders of the Senate and the House finalized an agreement." It also includes the Democrats' priority of $25 billion in rental assistance and an extension of the eviction moratorium. President-elect Joe Biden and leaders of both parties have said they intend to revisit Covid-19 relief in the new year.

WASHINGTON — Congressional leaders inched closer to sealing a coronavirus relief deal on Thursday, one day before a deadline to keep the government funded. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday that a deal between the two parties "appears to be close at hand" and that negotiators were "on the 1-yard line." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters that negotiators "made some progress this morning" and continued to talk. Democrats are pushing for it as an indirect way to get money to states and argue it will cost far less. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Thursday he's "hopeful that we finalize a deal today."

WASHINGTON — Coronavirus relief negotiations are hitting an impasse, again. His office declined to confirm or deny that McConnell poured cold water on the progress of the deal. But by the end of Thursday there was no apparent path to breaking the logjam with Congress expected to impose new government funding deadline next Friday. One senior Republican staffer said talks are focused on the scope and length of the liability protections. “Everyone knows that this bipartisan proposal is the only real game in town at the moment,” Schumer said.

WASHINGTON — Congress wants an extra week of time to negotiate government funding legislation and a coronavirus relief bill, according to lawmakers and aides familiar with negotiations. It will also allow for another week of negotiations on another round of Covid-19 relief, that could include unemployment benefits. Party leaders are negotiating the coronavirus relief package based on a $908 billion plan unveiled last week by a bipartisan rank-and-file group. The main sticking point is the parameters of a liability shield for companies and organizations, a GOP demand. In the government funding bill, money for President Donald Trump's border wall is a major sticking point again.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of lawmakers outlined a temporary $908 billion coronavirus relief proposal on Tuesday, far less than Democrats had hoped for, aimed at breaking a stalemate that has persisted for months. Republican leadership is pushing for a $500 billion package that has faltered in the Senate amid a lack of bipartisan support. The proposal includes $160 billion in aid to state and local governments, a priority for Democrats that Republicans have resisted. The framework provides $288 billion in support for small businesses like restaurants, and $180 billion to renew unemployment insurance, according to a summary obtained by NBC News. The working group pushing the new deal also includes four Republicans: Rep. Tom Reed of New York and Sens.

It has sent members of Trump's party scrambling to find a path for the defense bill, which outlines military policy and funding, and put them on a collision course with Democrats. The effort to change the names of military bases honoring Confederate military leaders has been a target for Trump for months. In July, Trump tweeted that he would veto the measure if it includes an amendment that renames bases.
