House Democrats have announced two articles of impeachment charging President Donald Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

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

Earlier Tuesday, Trump tweeted he did "NOTHING" wrong and that impeaching a president with his record would be "sheer Political Madness!"

The filing of the articles is a major step in Democrats' efforts to make Trump the third U.S. president to be impeached. It is only the fourth time in history that Congress has attempted to remove a sitting president from office.

The House Judiciary Committee could vote on the articles later this week, sending them to the House floor where lawmakers will need a majority vote to send them to the Senate.

If the articles pass in the House, the case will move to the Senate for a formal trial likely beginning in January, The Wall Street Journal reports.
