House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The articles charge Trump with "high crimes and misdemeanors." The impeachment inquiry has stemmed from allegations that Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations into his political opponents to boost his 2020 campaign. Trump has claimed no wrongdoing; he has not participated in the process. The House Judiciary Committee will reportedly vote on the articles of impeachment on Thursday, sending it to a full floor vote next week.
