Sen. John Ratcliff (R-Texas), gave an impassioned statement about the Democrats’ efforts to impeach, saying they were depriving Trump of due process (see video below).
When House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) called a recess then postponed the vote, Republicans in the committee weren’t happy.
From the Post:
After the Committee votes, a full House vote is expected next week.

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

Alexander Hamilton said the greatest danger of impeachment would be depriving a president of due process and using impeachment politically by the party that has the most votes in the House. Sadly, that day has come. Today’s Democrats are the Founders’ worst nightmare. pic.twitter.com/tIGs8F6QA1

Republicans spent the day peddling falsehoods & they wanted us to vote on impeachment in the middle of the night.
The facts are uncontested. Our vote to impeach this president is too important to do in the middle of the night.
We will do it in the light of day.
