WASHINGTON (AFP) -- The US House of Representatives voted 229-198 on Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump for obstruction of Congress.
Trump was facing two articles of impeachment -- for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress -- and both articles were passed in the Democratic-majority House.

The 45th US president is just the third occupant of the White House in US history to be impeached.
Trump will now face a trial in the Senate, where Republicans have a majority and removal from office is unlikely. (AFP)
