Trump defies Congress

Original article by Jacob Greber
The Australian Financial Review – Page: 1 & 12 : 20-Dec-19

US President Donald Trump maintains that he had done nothing wrong with regard to his dealings with the Ukrainian president, after the House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment. The article on abuse of power was passed by 230 votes to 197, with just two Democrats voting against it; the article on obstruction of congress was passed 229 votes to 198, with three Democrats voting against it. Trump will now face a trial in the Senate; he is likely to be acquitted, as the Republicans control the upper house. However, the impeachment may have significant implications for the 2020 presidential election.
