The first article was for abuse of power.

House Democrats said President Trump abused his power when he solicited and pressure Ukraine to investigate a political rival Joe Biden during a July 25 call.

They would then send their recommendations to the Senate where Republicans would make the final decision to either remove Trump from office and replace him with Vice Mike Pence or keep him in office.

As at now, nothing is guaranteed.
