    For only the third time in history, a sitting president of the United States has been formally impeached. The pending charges are essentially Trump’s alleged interference with the elections, by asking Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden in return for aid. (The first US impeachment was against Johnson). The Democrats filed a 111-page impeachment brief against the president on Saturday, Jan 18th stating inter alia:
