The Senate trial on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, begins this week.


The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, stemming from his dealings with Ukraine, has moved to the Senate after the House adopted two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
