The House is poised to vote separately on two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — after six hours of floor debate.
On social media, some of Trump's most vocal detractors in the entertainment industry expressed triumph over the impeachment vote.
"Star Trek" alum George Takei wrote to his 3 million followers on Twitter:
I've said it before, but it's bears repeating: The moral arc of justice is long but it bends towards impeachment.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) December 18, 2019
Happy Impeachment Day, America! No matter what happens from here, remember that we stood up, and our leaders in Congress (thank you Nancy, Adam) did the right thing.
God, arrest ye scary gentlemen— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) December 18, 2019
The people you dismay

On this Impeachment Day

From Donald's lies,

The night before the House was poised to vote on impeachment, former "West Wing" star Joshua Malina appeared to be in a festive mood:
Oh how I love Erev Impeachment! It's magical.— (((Josh Malina))) (@JoshMalina) December 18, 2019
"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted a "Daily Show" segment with the hashtag "ImpeachmentDay":

And not all of Trump's high-profile critics appeared as ebullient as some of their celeb colleagues.
Alec Baldwin, who won an Emmy Award in 2017 for his portrayal of Trump on "Saturday Night Live," called the president a threat to the nation, while former "Charmed" actress Alyssa Milano referred to Wednesday's vote as an "extremely sad day."
The United States could not be more threatened with the exception of Putin presiding in the Oval Office.#ImpeachTrump— HABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) December 18, 2019

The Members took an oath. Failing to act — failing to rein in the abuses of power — would be a dereliction of duty.
I stand with our members of Congress as they stand up to #DefendOurDemocracy.
