President Trump is speaking to the nation following attacks on military bases in Iraq where U.S. troops are stationed. Trump tweeted on Tuesday night that "All is well!" and that an assessment of the casualties was underway. Iran said the missiles were launched as an act of self-defense after the U.S. killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq.

Some of President Donald Trump's staunchest GOP allies say he should apologize for attacking the late Democratic Rep. John Dingell of Michigan.

On Wednesday night as the Democratic-led House impeached him, Trump said from a rally in Michigan that the World War II veteran Dingell might be “looking up” from hell.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says the president should apologize.

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said Dingell had served the country well.

The White House says Trump was “”just riffing."

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A defiant President Donald Trump is labeling his impeachment by the House of Representatives “a suicide march” for the Democratic Party. 

Trump spoke at a freewheeling rally in Michigan on Wednesday night as the House voted to impeach him.

He took the stage just minutes before he became the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.

It was a dramatic and discordant split-screen moment, with Trump emerging from a mock fireplace like Santa Claus at the Christmas-themed rally as the debate in Washington was underway.

A protest was staged in South Bend on the eve of the U.S. House debating and voting on Articles of Impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump. The demonstration was outside the office of Sen. Mike Braun, a Republican who has indicated he will not support impeachment and will support Trump when the issue comes before the U.S. Senate. 

Some demonstrators chanted, "Lock him up!" A variation on the chant often heard at Trump's rallies when he urges his supporters to voice displeasure about his 2016 political opponent, Hillary Clinton. Below are video clips of protestors chanting. 

About 50 protestors lined the sidewalk in front of Braun’s office Tuesday night. They want President Donald Trump impeached.

U.S. Senate

U.S. Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) won’t say whether he’d vote to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Trump is widely expected to be impeached by the U.S. House this week. Under the rules of impeachment, the U.S. Senate should then hold a trial before a vote on whether to remove the president from office.

Young won’t tip his hand right now – he only says he’ll be a “conscientious U.S. senator.”
