Donald Trump has been impeached the House of Representatives the USA. The House took the historic step impeaching the President. It is just the third time history that a US president has been impeached. President Trump has been charged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. These represent the impeachable acts "high crimes and misdemeanors," which could lead to his removal power. This is unlikely, however, as the Republican-controlled US Congress has to vote favor of that a majority of two-thirds. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: "If we do not act now, we would be derelict our duty. It is tragic that the President's reckless actions make impeachment necessary."
The impeachment is the culmination a lengthy and acrimonious three-month investigation allegations that President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rivals personal gain. Mr Trump has continually called the probe the greatest witch-hunt history. Republicans also reacted angrily to the impeachment. Republican Barry Loudermilk compared the process to the fate of Jesus Christ his death. He said: "Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than Democrats have afforded this president this process." Mr Trump said: "The Democrats are surrendering their majority, their dignity. They look a bunch fools." He tweeted: "They are not after me; they are after you."
