United States President Donald Trump has finally been impeached making him the third President in the history of the US to be impeached. The Republican President was impeached on Wednesday night, December 18, 2019, on the grounds of abuse of power in his dealings with Ukraine and obstruction of congress by the US House of Assembly.
“It is tragic that the president’s reckless actions, make impeachment necessary,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said as she “solemnly and sadly” opened the House debate on impeachment.
“He gave us no choice,” Pelosi said.
“The president is an ongoing threat to our national security, and the integrity of our elections, the basis of our democracy,”
Trump, who has denied any wrongdoing, took the stage at a Michigan rally as the House began voting on impeachment.
