WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats have announced two articles of impeachment charging President Donald Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The charges announced Tuesday stem from Trump's pressure on Ukraine to announce investigations of his political rivals as he withheld aid to the country.

The case against Trump was laid out at a daylong House Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday.
