U.S. House impeaches Donald Trump for abuse of power

The Democratic-led House passed the abuse of power article of impeachment on a largely party-line 230-197 vote.

The House then proceeded with a vote on a second article of impeachment charging him with obstruction of Congress.

The House action sets the stage for a trial next month in the Republican-controlled Senate - friendlier terrain for Trump - on whether to convict him and remove him from office.

As the House voted, Trump was addressing a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan.
