December 12, 2019 at 08:21 GMT +00:00 · Published

The House Judiciary Committee's meeting over an impeachment inquiry against US President Donald Trump kicked off in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Democrats introduced two articles of impeachment against Trump on "abuse of power and obstruction of Congress."

The voting on both articles is expected to take place later on Thursday, with Democrats holding a 24-17 majority on the committee.

The impeachment proceedings were sparked by an official whistleblower complaint over a phone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the son of Democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.
