House votes to send impeachment articles to Senate

The United States House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to send the impeachment charges against President Donald Trump to the Senate.

The vote was almost entirely partisan, with 228 Democrats voting in favor, while 192 Republicans were joined by one Democrat in rejecting the resolution on sending the articles. The House resolution enables financial backing for the impeachment trial proceedings and confirms the seven impeachment managers.

Earlier today, Trump called the impeachment process "another con job" by the Democratic Party. He was impeached in December for alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress by the Democrat-controlled House.
