Donald Trump Has Been Impeached
President Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives.
For only the third time in American history a sitting U.S. President has been impeached.
The votes for and against were basically along party lines.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said "I solemnly and sadly open the debate on the impeachment of the President of the United States."
If the impeachment is approved, the House would select lawmakers to present the case against Trump at a Senate trial.
It is unlikely that Trump will be removed from office based on his support in the Senate.
