The U.S. House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump. The vote was divided along party lines, with no Republicans supporting impeachment, and only 4 democrats dissenting from their party.

This historic vote concerned two articles of impeachment, though just one would have been enough to impeach President Trump. The House voted 230 to 197 to charge Trump with abuse of power, and 229-198 to charge him with obstruction of Congress.

The accusations against Trump are linked to his dealings with Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of Trump’s political rival Joe Biden.  

Trump is now the 3rd U.S. President in history to be impeached, along with Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

Trump has repeatedly denied claims that he did anything wrong, calling the impeachment proceedings a “sham” and a “witch hunt”.


Senate to Try President

In order for the President to be convicted of these articles of impeachment, the Senate must now host a trial. A two-thirds majority of the senate must vote to convict the President of any wrongdoing in order for him to be removed from office. The trials are set to begin next month.

Experts believe that this is unlikely to happen because the Senate is held by a Republican majority.
