On December 10, House Democrats said they would bring two articles of impeachment against President Trump, setting up just the third vote to impeach a U.S. president in history. The Hill agency reported this

"Today, in the service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Judiciary Committee is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the president of the United States of committing high crimes and misdemeanors," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said before introducing the first article.

The charges brought by Democrats are that Trump abused the power of his office and that he obstructed Congress in the impeachment inquiry.

"It is an impeachable offense for a president to use the powers of his office to seek a personal benefit," Nadler said, pointing to Trump's actions in Ukraine.
