We gather today under the dome of this temple of democracy to exercise one of the most solemn powers that this body can take: The impeachment of the President of the United States. If we do not act now we would be derelict in our duty. It is tragic that the President's reckless actions make impeachment necessary. He gave us no choice. ~ Speaker Nancy Pelosi 

America's House of Representatives have taken the historic step to impeach President Donald Trump, charging a president with high crimes and misdemeanors for the 3rd time in American history.

The House voted almost entirely along party lines for 2 articles of impeachment to remove the President from office - Abuse of power and Obstruction of Congress 

This act sends the case to the Senate for a trial expected to start next month. The impeachment votes marked the culmination of a sprawling and rapidly moving 3 month Democratic investigation into allegations that the President pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rivals while withholding US security assistance and a White House meeting.

The House voted 230-197 to charge Trump with abuse of power and 229-198 to charge him with obstruction of Congress. 

Trump's impeachment, which occurred 85 days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the opening of the impeachment inquiry, will have long-lasting ramifications across Washington and beyond. It will undoubtedly shape the legacies of the key players in the midst of it, from Pelosi and her committee chairs who led the impeachment proceedings to Trump and his staunchest defenders in Congress.

The impeachment places Donald Trump alongside only 2 other presidents in America's history - Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.
