Debate on articles of impeachment against U.S President Donald Trump begins today, Wednesday.
US lawmakers in the House of Representatives are due to start debate on the articles of impeachment against U.S President Donald Trump today, Wednesday, with a vote expected to follow a heated battle between Democrats and Republicans.
Democrats accuse the president of abusing his office by soliciting Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political rival, Joe Biden, and withholding military aid as pressure. He is also alleged to have obstructed Congress’ investigation of the affair.
Republicans reject both articles of impeachment against the U.S President Donald Trump saying he did nothing wrong in his contacts with Ukraine.
The House has the power to impeach with a simple majority, but the trial in the Senate will require a two-thirds majority to remove a president from office, making the prospect very unlikely.
