US House opens debate to impeach Trump for abuse of power

The House rejected a move by Republicans to derail the debate on the articles of impeachment. Final votes on the charges are expected this evening.

A bitterly divided US House of Representatives opened debate Wednesday ahead of a vote on impeaching President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump’s impeachment by the Democratic-controlled House, expected by the end of the day, would trigger a trial in the Senate.

Republicans enjoy a majority in the Senate and are unlikely to vote to remove the 45th US president from office.
