Washington, 19 Dec. 2019 (CNN)
President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives in a near party-line vote Wednesday. He is still the President. What comes next is a trial in the Senate early next year that could, but probably won’t, cost him the White House.
How the historic vote went down
- Abuse of power for his effort to withhold taxpayer money from Ukraine and get that country to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden;
- Obstruction of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with the oversight investigation.
