The U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald J. Trump last night. The 45th President of the United States became the third ever to be impeached last night, on abuse of power, and obstruction of justice.

No House votes until January 7.
Lawmakers are all heading home for the holidays.
Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate is in limbo.
And with it, America's fate.
