From Summer Report, 7:33 am on 16 January 2020

A vote to send the impeachment charges against the US President, Donald Trump, to the Senate has passed. 

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has named the seven Democrats who will act as prosecutors in laying out the impeachment case against the President.

It's expected he will go on trial in the Senate next week on charges that he abused his office and obstructed Congress.

The President has already tweeted following latest development in his impeachment - calling it "another Con Job by the Do Nothing Democrats".
