Democrats in the House of Representatives on Tuesday unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald John Trump.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the move to impeach Trump was to protect and defend the constitution of the United States.

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.
The second article was on obstruction of Congress.
Democrats said President Trump obstructed Congress by refusing to turn over documents when it tried to investigate his abuse of office.
Democrats said “no one, not even the President is above the law”.
The House of Representatives is expected to impeach President Trump before Christmas.
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.
