Historian declares Trump definitively 'disgraced' as the House delivers impeachment article
Rep. Jamie Raskin

Michael Beschloss has sealed Donald Trump's fate for the rest of time, passing judgment on him as House Democrats presented the Article of Impeachment against the former president to the U.S. Senate.

Beschloss is NBC News's Presidential Historian.
