From Brexit breaking news to HD movie trailers, The Sun newspaper brings you the latest news videos and explainers from the UK and around the world.

Democrats and Trump's team traded haymakers in the opening round of Tuesday's impeachment fight.

Democrats opened the proceedings by demanding Trump be "removed from office" before he can "cheat his way to victory in 2020" as the impeachment trial begins.

Trump was charged with abuse of power by withholding US military aid to Ukraine trying to force them to investigate Democrat Joe Biden.

He also faces another charge of obstruction of Congress by refusing to cooperate with their resulting investigation.

The Constitution gives the House the sole power to impeach a president.

The Senate has the final verdict by convening as the impeachment court for a trial.
