The U.S. House of Representatives is fixed to take a far-reaching and profoundly polarizing vote on Wednesday when it is expected to impeach President Donald Trump on charges of misusing his office and barring a congressional inquiry.
Trump would become solely the third U.S. president to be impeached, an exceptional check on presidential power spelled out in the U.S. Constitution for executives who commit “high crimes and misdemeanours.” No president has ever been dismissed from office under its terms.
The vote would end in a hearing next month in the U.S. Senate in which House members would serve as prosecutors. That chamber is controlled by Republicans, who have shown little interest in removing Trump from office.
