President Trump Has Been Impeached

On Wednesday night, the House voted to pass both of its two articles of impeachment brought against President Donald Trump. The first, one charging the president with abusing his power passed 230-197, with two Democrats voting no. Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard voted present.

The second article the House adopted accuses Trump of obstructing Congress. The final vote was 229-198, with three Democrats voting no and Gabbard again voting present. Both are tied to the Ukraine scandal and Trump’s urging of the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter.

President Trump has become the third president in history to be impeached. The House passed both articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
