Donald Trump has become the third US president in history to be impeached by the House of Representatives, setting up a trial in the Senate that will decide whether he remains in office.
The House voted on two charges – that the president abused his power and that he had obstructed Congress.
Voting pretty much on party lines, the president of the United States has been impeached.
Both votes fell along party lines with nearly all Democrats voting for the charges and all Republicans against.
Trump will probably survive a Senate vote on the matter, which requires at least 20 Republicans to change sides.
