Trump impeachment a step closer after vote to press charges

The impeachment of Donald Trump has moved a step closer after a committee voted to press formal charges against the US president.

The House of Representatives judiciary committee approved two articles of impeachment on Friday.

Mr Trump is accused of abusing his power by trying to force Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and of obstructing Congress when politicians tried to investigate.

A full vote will now be held in the House of Representatives next week.

If that vote passes in the Democrat-majority House then impeachment proceedings will continue to a full trial in the Senate.
