Trump's second impeachment: US president to face Senate trial for inciting insurrection
3 hours ago
Donald Trump makes history: the only US President to be impeached TWICE. The vote in the House of Representatives saw 10 Republicans flip over to vote against their president.

Her book is entitled "Sex Robots & Vegan Meat".

Saudi Arabia shut its side of Qatar's only land border in June 2017 as part of a package of sanctions it said was a response to Doha's backing of radical Islamist groups and closeness to Iran. Qatar has always denied the charges.
