President Trump's reelection campaign blasted House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee for passing the impeachment articles on Friday after a full day of debate on Thursday. No Republicans voted for the two articles: Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. 

"This committee vote is just another act in the Democrats’ political theater. The baseless, sham impeachment is just out-of-control partisan politics and the American people are rejecting it," Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

"Remarkable to watch such obvious political theater, with Democrats too far down the path to stop and avoid making the worst political miscalculation in modern history," Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh tweeted.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham pointed to how Trump the United States had reached an agreement with China in phase one of their trade deal.

"This desperate charade of an impeachment inquiry in the House Judiciary Committee has reached its shameful end. The President looks forward to receiving in the Senate the fair treatment & due process which continues to be disgracefully denied to him by the House," Grisham said in an official statement.

"Never in our country’s history has a President been treated so unfairly by a sham investigation with one-sided testimony meant to undermine the will of the American people,"  Katie Waldman, Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary, said. "The American people have the facts, they can read the transcript, no quid pro quo, and the aide to Ukraine was released. Democrats in Congress should heed the voice of the American people and reject this partisan impeachment that has been a complete waste of time. Democrats in Congress need to get back to work for the American people!"
