WATCH: Trump Impeachment Proceedings

Special BroadcastDecember 18, 2019

On Wednesday, December 18, 2019 the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump on two articles of impeachment. The articles accuse President Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The articles sent to the full House by the Judiciary Committee centered on how President Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden, and how Trump then tried to cover up his actions to thwart a congressional inquiry.

On Tuesday, December 17, the House Rules Committee debated the rules that will govern the House of Representatives’ vote on whether or not to impeach President Trump on two charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

After a tense hearing on Thursday, December 12 that lasted more than 14 hours, the House Judiciary Committee reconvened voted to send the impeachment charges to the full House of Representatives for a vote.
