Trump in fear of a political trial being passed
Camera of Representatives will decide whether there will be a political trial against the US president.
The American president, Donald Trump, insisted that he did "nothing wrong", prior to the vote in the House of Representatives that could trigger a political trial against him in the Senate.
"They may believe that I will be accused today by the Radical Left and the Democrats who do nothing, AND I DID NOTHING BAD! It's a terrible thing," Trump said on Twitter.
"This should never happen to another president. Pray."
His tweet has been interpreted by many as assuming that the House of Representatives approved the arguments for the political trial in the Senate.
The US president is one step away from becoming the third president of the United States. Facing a political trial.
The House of Representatives, controlled by the Democratic opposition, will decide at the end of the afternoon, after a six-hour session, if it approves the two charges of impeachment against the president: "abuse of power" and "obstruction of work congressional".
Democrats accuse Trump of abusing his power for personal political purposes by freezing military aid to Ukraine to force the European country to open an investigation against Joe Biden, his potential rival in the 2020 presidential election.
If the lower house approves the accusations, the Senate will take the reins of the political trial, probably in January. The Republican majority in the upper house makes a dismissal of the president a highly unlikely result.
