Arizona Representative Andy Biggs called House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s decision to abruptly end the impeachment hearing on Thursday night “stunning.” According to Biggs, members of the Committee had an agreement to proceed with a vote on the adoption of two articles of impeachment on Thursday night, but Nadler pulled the plug unexpectedly.
Chairman Jerry Nadler just pulled a fast one on House Judiciary Republicans. We were expecting to vote on Articles of Impeachment in Committee tonight before he recessed until tomorrow.
This is yet another of a long line of bad-faith, dishonest dealings by the Democrats. pic.twitter.com/wvPs4XE1rF

Representative Debbi Lesko speculated that Nadler was concerned that not enough people were watching the impeachment hearing so late at night. Nadler ended the hearing at approximately 11:15 p.m.
In case you needed ANY MORE evidence that this is a Kangaroo Court, Chairman Nadler just postponed the vote on articles of impeachment until tomorrow morning to make sure the tv cameras are still rolling.
This whole thing is a total sham.
