Traditionally, the impeachment of a President would always be seen as a humiliation for the United States.
Democrats are now presenting it as a chance for America to redeem itself.
The top Democrat – the Speaker of the House – Nancy Pelosi has announced they will bring articles of impeachment against President Trump.
If he is impeached by the House with its Democrat majority the Senate – which is held by the Republicans – would hold a trial and need to agree by a two thirds majority.
The heart of the constitution is at stake, says Nancy Pelosi. President Trump says, she’s ‘just had a nervous fit’.
