Wednesday evening, Donald J. Trump became the third president in U.S. history to be impeached by members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the first to be charged with compromising U.S. security.
Members held two votes on articles of impeachment.
The first charged Mr. Trump with using the powers of the presidency for his personal benefit when he asked Ukraines president to investigate Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden, in an effort to tilt the 2020 election in his favor. In the meantime, Mr. Trump withheld $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, a longtime ally in battle against Russia.
