The process that could cause President Donald Trump to be removed from the White House has taken a significant step after a motion was passed to file dismissal articles.
The House of Representatives of the United States voted to send the documents of the trial to the Senate, and Trump was accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The Republican president has openly expressed his refusal to do something wrong, but is accused of trying to pressure the leader of Ukraine to initiate an investigation into Democratic political rival Joe Biden.
The resolution was largely passed by 228 votes against 193, the BBC reports.
The president of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, signed the documents together with the team of Democratic lawyers who will process the case against the president.
Democrats control the House and chose to dismiss Trump in December, but it is the Republican Senate who will decide whether to condemn and dismiss him.
At a press conference before the articles were signed, Ms. Pelosi said: “Today we will make history.
“When managers walk down the hall, we will cross a threshold in history, delivering articles of political judgment against the president of the United States for abuse of power and obstruction of the House.”
With articles sent to the Senate with leader Mitch McConnell saying they will be exhibited today at noon, while the trial is scheduled for Tuesday, the third of a president of the United States in history, the last is Bill Clinton.
The accusations are related to a phone call that Trump made on July 25 last year, with Biden now in the race to become the White House nomination for the Democratic Party.
Biden’s son, Hunter, held a position on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, while his father handled relations between the United States and Ukraine as vice president of Barack Obama, Trump’s predecessor.
As a result, Trump had claimed unproven corruption.
