On Wednesday, the House will officially vote on the two approved articles of impeachment against Mr. Trump. The historic vote is expected to take place in the afternoon between the hours of 4:00 and 6:00 p.m.
On Tuesday, the evening before the expected vote, massive crowds in cities across the country took to the streets to demand Mr. Trump’s impeachment and removal. The American people overwhelmingly support impeachment and are letting themselves be heard despite the conflict that surrounds Washington.
The signs plagued Times Square in New York City as protesters came together to demand justice for the country.

Mr. Trump faces charges on two articles of impeachment on Wednesday for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. It is all but certain the House will pass the two articles of impeachment, which will lead to a trial in the Senate which is comprised of a Republican majority.
