President Donald Trump on Wednesday became the third president in US history to be impeached.
It voted largely along party lines, 230-197 in favor of abuse of power and 229-198 in favor of obstruction.
More representatives voted to impeach Trump than in either of the two previous impeachments, of Bill Clinton in 1998 and Andrew Johnson in 1868.
The House, which then had far fewer members, voted 66% to impeach, versus 52% for Trump.
