White House adviser Ivanka Trump said that her father is "energized" by the impending Senate impeachment trial President Trump's daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump said Thursday that her father is "energized" by the impending Senate impeachment trial.

"This is historic, as you note," Trump continued. "And in many ways, including the fact that it is the first purely partisan impeachment." On Wednesday, the House passed two articles of impeachment against President Trump, voting largely along party lines to accuse him of abuse of power over his dealings with Ukraine and obstruction of Congress. Trump is the third president in U.S. history to be impeached, joining Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. President Nixon resigned after

Queen’s speech: what is in Boris Johnson’s 2020 programme? Queen’s speech is Boris Johnson’s second in just over two months. Its 29 bills will be the basis of his legislative agenda for the year. Described as “radical” by the prime minister, it leads on his law to formally take the UK out of the EU. There are also plans to overhaul immigration and put into law investment in the NHS. The European Union (withdrawal agreement) bill will ratify the deal the prime minister struck with EU leaders in the autumn and which was voted down by parliament repeatedly. He is set to put this bill to MPs on Friday and hopes to have this passed by 31 January. This legislation also includes an implementation period where the UK remains aligned with the EU until 31 December 2020. An agriculture bill will result in Britain leaving the EU’s common agricultural policy. Direct payments to farmers will be phased out. The fisheries bill removes the UK from the common fisheries policy and will put into law that

According to a report in the Express UK, Charles Ross, a local campaigner, started a petition back in August to strip Meghan and Harry of their ‘unfairly acquired title’.

As per the report, councillors of Brighton and Hove will decide whether they will reject Meghan and Harry's current title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has said Donald Trump's impeachment is far-fetched and predicts the U.S. Senate will reject it “The party that lost the (2016) election is continuing the fight by other means,” Putin said. He likened Trump’s impeachment to the earlier U.S. probe into collusion with Russia, which Putin downplayed as being groundless. Putin noted that the impeachment motion “is yet to pass the Senate where the Republicans have a majority.” He added that “they will be unlikely to remove a representative of their own party from office on what seems to me an absolutely far-fetched reason.” Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming only the third American chief executive to be formally charged under the Constitution’s ultimate remedy for high crimes and misdemeanors. The historic vote split along party lines Wednesday night in the U.S., much the way it has divided the nation, over a charge that the 45th president abused the power of his office by
