DETROIT (WXYZ) — The impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump is now moving into its second phase.

The House Judiciary Committee passed two articles of impeachment Friday. The charges against President Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of congress. Both votes were passed 23 to 17.

On Tuesday, it is expected that the House Rules Committee will meet to formalize the floor debate on the charges. From there, the house is expected to hold two votes on Wednesday, one for each charge.

Protests were held nationwide and in metro Detroit Saturday, Dec. 14.

People opposing President Donald Trump met at Grand Circus Park in Detroit. Bruce Fealk and others at the protest felt there is enough evidence to warrant an impeachment.

“The evidence that now is just overwhelming, regardless of what Trump tweets, the evidence is just completely overwhelming,” said Fealk.

There were also pro-President Donald Trump gatherings, protesting the impeachment inquiry. Supporters of President Donald Trump met outside the Oakland County Republican Party Headquarters in Bloomfield Hills.

“They are doing this because they’re afraid of what Donald Trump can still do that can benefit the country,” said Marian Sheridan.

“We don’t care what the Democrats say we are just going to keep on going,” said Jeff Hickson.
