Trump will carry the word ‘impeachment’ with him forever

For the third time in America’s history – the House of Representatives has voted to impeach a president.

Donald Trump will not be removed from office but that should not detract from the gravity of this moment and what it means for the future.

The Democrats now hand over the charges – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress – to the Republican controlled Senate.

Compared to the House – this is friendly territory where the president could mount the defence that he’s so far refused.

Donald Trump insists he’s done nothing wrong – yet he is not to allowing key White House players to testify in the Senate trial.
