House to Vote on Trump Impeachment This Week

In Brief:

House Democrats will vote on whether to impeach President Trump this week.

The Background:

RP reported previously that the U.S. House of Representatives, which has a Democrat majority, launched an impeachment investigation against President Trump after an anonymous “whistleblower,” who we now know was a CIA officer detailed to the White House, complained that the president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “look into” questionable behavior by Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Today, CNBC reports, “House Democrats announce they will vote on whether to impeach President Donald Trump on two specific articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House Judiciary Committee plans to vote on the articles this week, sending it to the full House for a final vote in the chamber.”
