TRUMP ON BRINK OF IMPEACHMENT AS US CONGRESS PREPARES FOR HISTORIC VOTE

Mr Trump compared the impeachment inquiry to the "Salem Witch Trials"

US president Donald Trump is on the cusp of being impeached by the house of representatives.

A historic debate is due to begin at 9am in Washington on charges that he abused his power and obstructed US congress.

Votes will then be held, which will leave a defining mark on Mr Trump's tenure at the White House.

Mr Trump, who would be just the third US president to be impeached, fired off a furious letter to house speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, denouncing the "vicious crusade" against him.

He also acknowledged he was powerless to stop the expected outcome.
