WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, in a surprise move, ended a marathon hearing late on Thursday without voting on two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Nadler said the committee will reconvene on Friday at 10 a.m. (1500 GMT) to hold the votes, which are expected to pass the Democratic-led panel.
