President Donald J. Trump waves as he boards Air Force One Saturday, Dec. 14 2019, at Joint Base Andrews, Md. for his flight to Philadelphia, Pa., to attend the 120th Army-Navy football game. |

On Wednesday evening, the House of Representatives voted in favor of sending Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate.

President Trump faces two charges, that of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Senate may begin their trial as early as January.
