Historical Articles of impeachment by Hannah Brown

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and five committee chairmen announced the articles on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress at a news conference. The Judiciary Committee will vote on the articles — the equivalent of a formal charge — on Thursday and the full House is expected to vote next week.
