The 45th elected President of the United State of America, Donald Trump, has impeached in a historic vote by the House of Representatives, setting up a trial in the Senate that will decide if he should remain in office.

The two articles of impeachment were passed by the house congress citing abused his power and that he had obstructed Congress. Although, the impeachment was voted by nearly all the democrats’ lawmakers, while not a single republican voted for either of the article chapters for the impeachment.

President Donald Trump impeached early hours ago, but he’s still the American president because his fate will be decided by the senate comes January next year. But the reality of next year’s impeachment hearing by the senate will not cost him anything, because of the republican control the senate upper house.

How the historic vote went down

The House exercised its constitutional right to charge Trump with high crimes and misdemeanors through votes on two articles of impeachment that will be familiar, at this point, to most Americans and now headed for the history books:
  • Abuse of power for his effort to withhold taxpayer money from Ukraine and get that country to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden;
  • Obstruction of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with the oversight investigation.

Impeachment math
The abuse of power article passed 230-197 with one lawmaker, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, voting present. One independent supported impeachment and two Democrats opposed both articles of impeachment, along with every Republican. One Democrat split votes, supporting the abuse of power article but not obstruction of Congress. The obstruction of Congress article passed 229-198 with Gabbard voting present.
The House speaker, Nancy Pelosi has this to say at her press conference after the impeachment by the house hours ago: “That would have been our intention, but we’ll see what happens over there .” “We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side, and we hope that will be soon,” Pelosi said. “So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us, so hopefully it will be fair.”
Donald Trump’s Responses on the impeachment notice:
As the vote was conducted, Trump was at a “Merry Christmas” campaign rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, which is the district represented by Rep. Justin Amash, the former Republican-turned-independent who voted to impeach him. Trump delayed his appearance to watch the vote.
“After three years of sinister witch hunts, hoaxes, scams, the House Democrats are trying to nullify the ballots of tens of millions of patriotic Americans,” he said.
