The House also approved the second charge, obstruction of Congress.

Democrats control the House, and the voting was mostly along party lines. The charges against Trump will next go to the Republican-controlled Senate for a trial in January.

Trump, who says he’s done nothing wrong, would almost certainly be acquitted there.
