The US Senate decides by two-thirds whether or not to remove President Donald Trump from the United States. your job title. This is the third time that there has been an impeachment process in American history, but no president has ever been impeached.
The vote was conducted by Mayor Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Democrats have a majority in the House, and approval of both articles was expected. Democrats say Trump has committed crimes and misdemeanors by urging Ukraine to disclose compromising data about Trump's main Democratic rival to aid his reelection campaign and that it has obstructed Congress by disrupting investigations into his conduct, allegations in the first and in the second articles judged on Wednesday night.
