Transcript for 2 articles of impeachment against Trump headed for full House vote
committee approved two articles of impeachment against him. ABC's David Wright is on capitol hill with reaction as those articles head for a full house vote. Good morning to you, David. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. President trump is now all but certain to join a very exclusive club.
