As the U.S. House of Representatives moves closer to impeaching Donald Trump, larger questions loom in the Senate, where the president may be headed for a rare conflict with his Republican allies over how any trial will be conducted. The House Judiciary Committee is due to meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday (0000 GMT) to consider formal articles of impeachment accusing Trump of abusing his power by trying to force Ukraine to investigate a political rival and of obstructing Congress when lawmakers tried to look into the matter. The full House, which is controlled by the Democrats, is likely to follow suit next week, making Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.

Whoopi Goldberg returned to The View after a week off on Tuesday wearing one of her signature Christmas sweaters.

When the audience began to cheer, she stopped them in their tracks. Waving a finger, Goldberg said, “No, no, this is not a celebratory moment. This is not a good thing.” “When he's out, then we'll clap,” Joy Behar chimed in. “Maybe you can clap then, but still, this is not good,” Goldberg said. “It wasn't good when it happened to Nixon. it wasn't good when it happened to Clinton.
