The lower house of the United States Congress recently passed a tough resolution, adopted by 232 votes in favor and 196 against, with which it approved the procedure of a political trial against the president
Donald Trump, a slow process that, theoretically, could culminate in his removal.
That resolution has been defined as a kind of "road map" to begin an investigation that has so far advanced behind closed doors and under the rules decided by the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives.

If at the time the lower house achieved the necessary majority to approve the realization of the political trial, it will be the Senate, where the official Republican Party has the majority, which must decide on the dismissal of the American president
To proceed with the dismissal, two thirds of the total votes of the upper house will be required, for which a break in the positions of the Republican senators should take place. The approval of the political trial could be voted in the House of Representatives by the end of the year, so the Senate would only start acting next year.
The reason for the start of the process against Trump is related to the apparent conditioning, by the US president, of military aid to the Ukrainian government against the delivery of information by its current authorities, referring to an alleged corruption case that would have relationship with the son of the main presidential candidate of the Democratic opposition for the 2020 elections, Joe Biden.
Before that version, 53% of Americans agree, according to the aforementioned survey, with which the so-called "Ukrainian plot" is investigated, which opened the way for political trial.
The investigation involving President Trump, to move forward, will presumably be carried out in parallel with the 2020 election campaign, which will add a greater factor of political uncertainty.
