A group of Democratic lawmakers plan to file articles of impeachment against President Trump before Thanksgiving.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Illinois, told the Chicago Tribune the group is currently meeting with constitutional scholars to solidify the case against the Republican president. He did not specify what the charges against Trump would be.

"I assure you we will not leave you lacking for reason," Gutierrez said.

Gutierrez did not name the lawmakers who would join him in the effort, though the Tribune named Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen as a likely supporter. Cohen had previously announced his plans to introduce impeachment articles against the president over his comments on white nationalists following protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In later comments, Gutierrez said he believes he will have support from fellow members of the House judiciary committee.

The charges, he said, will come before Thanksgiving.

"We believe he's unfit to be president of the United States, and we believe that he's violated the Constitution such that he should be impeached," Gutierrez said.

Two other Democrats - Reps. Brad Sherman of California and Al Green of Texas - have already introduced articles of impeachment against Trump. The lawmakers said Trump violated his constitutional oath by using his influence to "hinder and cause the termination" of investigations into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Comcast says it is boosting Internet speeds for its most of its Alabama customers at no extra charge starting Monday. The company offers three tiers of speed for its customers in Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Gadsden and Mobile.

Under the upgrades, Blast! speed service will increase from 75 Mbps to 100 Mbps, Performance service will move from 25 Mbps to 60 Mbps and Performance Starter service increases from 10 Mbps to 25 Mbps.

The new speeds will come at current prices initially. Comcast says 85 percent of its customers are subscribed to promotional packages, and the faster speeds will be available at their current price throughout the remainder of their plan.

Rollout starts Monday and continues through Dec. 19. Comcast says customers may need to re-start their modems to get the new speed. Comcast says it will notify customers and provide instructions before the changes take place.
