US Democrats have revealed formal charges against President Trump, accusing him of abuse of power and obstructing Congress.
The articles were disclosed by the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee and are an important step in impeaching the President. If the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee votes to approve them, they will go to the lower chamber for a vote.
Trump has been accused of withholding aid from Ukraine for domestic political purposes. He has insisted he has done “nothing wrong” and blasted the impeachment process as “madness”.
The IoD’s Business and Politics Round-up will be taking the day off tomorrow and return on Friday.
