WASHINGTON (AP) – The House Judiciary Committee has approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

The charges now go to the full House for an expected vote next week.  

The votes on both articles were strictly along party lines, 23 Democrats to 17 Republicans.

The abuse of power charge stems from Trump’s July phone call with the Ukraine president pressuring him to announce an investigation of Democrats as he was withholding US aid.

The obstruction charge involves Trump’s blocking of House efforts to investigate his actions.

Trump has denied all wrongdoing.
