WASHINGTON D.C. (KSNT) – The House of Representatives voted Wednesday in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump.

The House debated for several hours Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against Trump:

  • Abuse of Power
  • Obstruction of Congress

Both articles gained enough support from the House Wednesday evening.

Trump held a rally in Michigan but still took to Twitter to voice his opinions on the impeachment debate.

The vote will now head to the Senate where a trial will be held. Then there will have to be a two-thirds majority to convict the president and remove him from office.
