THR the Democrats' initiation of impeachment proceedings against Trump.

In the US, a sitting president can be impeached (removed from office) for high crimes and misdemeanors. To do this, the House of Representatives has the responsibility to bring the charges, and the Senate has to vote with a two-thirds majority. President Trump is currently facing impeachment proceedings in the US. He is accused of pressuring Ukraine's President to dig up damaging information on one of his main Democrat challengers, Joe Biden, and his son Hunter, in order to improperly boost his chances of re-election in 2020. The president is accused of dangling two things as bargaining chips to Ukraine - withholding $400m of military aid to Ukraine, and a White House meeting for Ukraine's president. It is unclear whether this amounts to a 'high crime/misdemeanor'.
