On the night before the House of Representatives votes on two articles of impeachment against President Trump, protesters gathered in cities across the United States to call on Congress to vote for his removal from office. An estimated 600 demonstrations were held on Tuesday, organized by the MoveOn and Indivisible groups. In New York City, protesters in Manhattan chanted "No one's above the law" and held up signs reading "IMPEACH." Trump is facing one charge of abuse of power for asking Ukraine to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and a charge of obstruction of Congress. The House is expected to vote in favor of impeachment, with the trial then starting in the Republican-controlled Senate next month.
