WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is on the cusp of being impeached by the House, with a historic debate set to begin on charges he abused his power and obstructed Congress.
Votes that will leave a defining mark on Trump's tenure at the White House are expected by Wednesday evening.
Trump sent a fiery letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, denouncing what he called the "vicious crusade” against him.
But a tally compiled by The Associated Press shows Pelosi has the votes to approve the charges.
Republicans already are working on how to conduct a trial in January.
