The House Judiciary Committee is moving toward votes on two articles of impeachment against President Trump later today or tonight. Trump is accused of abusing his power and obstructing Congress in the Ukraine scandal. Louisiana Republican Mike Johnson called it an impeachment charade. Maryland Democrat Jamie Raskin accused Republicans of falsely pushing a big distraction, that it was Ukraine that interfered in the 2016 U.S. election.       House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is promising that if voters give Republicans the majority, they will never repeat the rush to impeachment that is currently underway. The California Republican said that the GOP will govern responsibly. He criticized Democrats for how they've handled impeaching President Trump.       Stocks are at or near record highs amid news of a possible trade deal with China. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the U.S. is agreeing to not impose tariffs that were scheduled to start Sunday, if the Chinese agree to purchase more U.S. goods. President Trump also tweeted he is very close to a big deal with China.       New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal [[ grr-BEER gray-WALL ]] says it appears the Jersey City shooters held anti-Semitic and anti-police views. Investigators are reviewing surveillance video and social media accounts linked to the suspects to try and determine why the kosher supermarket and law enforcement were specifically targeted on Tuesday.        Those killed in the mass shooting at Naval Air Station-Pensacola in Florida are being honored posthumously. Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly announced this week that the Wings of Gold have been presented to the families of Joshua Watson, Mohammed Haitham and Cameron Walters. Modly says the three were among the first to respond to last week's horrific attack and they represent the highest virtues of naval aviation.        The Department of Justice is accusing ten former NFL players of submitting false claims for medical equipment, including some for treating horses and pregnant women. The Eastern District of Kentucky is claiming the players filed the claims seeking reimbursements on three-point-nine-million-dollars worth of medical equipment that they never actually bought.
