Investing.com - The U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump Wednesday. The vote was expected and had little effect on the financial markets. But trading had been fairly quiet during the regular session in anticipation of any vote in Congress.

- The Democratic-led House voted along party lines (230 to 197 with 1 voting present) in favor of the first article of impeachment: abuse of power.

- It also voted (229 to 198 with 1 present) to impeach the president on the second article: obstruction of Congress.

- It remains unlikely Trump will be removed from office by the Republican-led Senate.

- S&P 500 Futures were flat. The dollar index was also flat and the 10-year yield was at 1.906%.

Sad day for the Republic. This is a prime example how bad a pure democracy is. Purely partisan vote. Not one republican voted to impeach even 2 democrats left the party because of it.

The Democrats' victory here (if it can be called that) is like coming first in qualifying in a practice round on a computer game. At least this time they didn't fail by cheating and lying like when Killary lost, so a slight improvement on their part LOL!!

This will roll right off the President's back!  I believe Trump is the greatest President of these modern times and definitely the greatest President on my lifetime! (I was born 1954)!. . The liberal Dems have basically pooped on the POTUS. What about showing respect and honor for our duly elected President Ms Pelosi??? If you have so much reverence for our beloved Republic why not 'man up' or 'woman up' to the hard fact that the American people elected this man to lead the country?...as he will likely be re-elected once again!  If tables were turned - Republicans would act like grown adults and not raise such a fuss. I generally lean toward republican yet I voted for Obama. I think Obama is a 'nice guy' but was rather milquetoast as a President. Trump is five times the President Obama was. Trump gets things done even in the face of all this adversity!  I'll definitely vote for him again!!!!

wow. You're talking crazy. The Right wing media is the true fake news in this country. I'm about your age but I've seen what's been going on. The Republican Party has become a mob of liars, propaganda and hatred. Fox was created literally created for this purpose, truth be damned. Look it up. It's Murdoch's evil scheme. I assure you Trump's the worst thing this country's ever seen. You need some serious educational help.

It’s only human for him to do what he did. And he did it decently. I don’t think there is anything wrong. He’s a great leader. He will lead the US well and keep the dominance for 5 more year.

The way he "leads the dominance" will only last 5 years more, and he will ruin the next 50 years for America. Wake up people and take a closer look at the world. What Trump has done was starting WWIII and nothing else.

Trump should not have done all these tarriffs and economy would have been much stronger. Now he has to fight an economy that is about to enter recession and also facing impeachment. That will be a big hit for him. I don't think he can last until November 2020.

The democrats have no choice but to run the democratic impeachment because they already wasted the taxpayers’ money during the three year witch hunt. They have nothing to show so they have to impeach even if they know Trump will be aquitted in a bi-partisan Senate trial. It’s really sad. I say this with a heavy heart. LOL

You should read about our impeachment process... but the short answer is that removing a president for alleged crimes happens in multiple stages... not just in one pass.  The Democrats (his opposition) control the House of Representatives; they passed articles of impeachment that all House Republicans voted against... now that they passed articles of impeachment, those will be sent to the Senate, which is controlled by Trump's own party... so this impeachment is not expected to clear the Senate; where a 2/3 majority would be needed to remove him.  The Democrats do NOT have the votes... So removal is NOT expected to happen, at all... The immature House Democrats are basically just throwing a hissy fit, but the Senate is expected to slam the  door in the face of their claims.

0 chance he gets removed as the repo senate won't even have a real trial. They should call all the witnesses that Trump obstructed from testifying to the house judicial committee. The real shame is the repos standing lock step with Trump in obstructing Congress from following the Constitution. Hopefully the Chief Justice will stop the repo effort and conduct a real trial.
