Democratic leaders on Tuesday announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Both articles stem from the Ukraine scandal, in which Trump threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine in exchange for its investigation of his political rivals. Meanwhile, fallout continues from the release Monday of the report by the Justice Department’s inspector general. It found that the FBI's 2016 decision to investigate the Trump campaign's possible Russia ties was legally justified and free of political bias, though there were "serious" errors in how agents carried out the warrants. We'll review the latest developments and answer your questions.
