Pelosi had reportedly warned Democrats earlier in the day not to celebrate Trump's impeachment.

The House also approved an article of impeachment charging Trump with obstructing Congress after several hours of debate. 

Trump will now face trial in the GOP-controlled Senate, which is unlikely to remove him from office.
