The Articles of Impeachment Against Trump Are Here
In the latest updates of the impeachment drama unfolding in Washington, DC, House Democrat leaders officially introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Rep. Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, addressed the media at a press conference on Tuesday to unveil Trump’s offenses.
“Today, in service of our duty to the constitution, and to our country, the House Committee on the Judiciary is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the POTUS Donald J. Trump with committing high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said.
The charges? Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
None of these sound surprising given the numerous reports that have accounted for Trump’s relationship with Ukraine in an attempt to interfere with the upcoming 2020 election for his own personal benefit.
Rep. Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, claims that Trump’s actions are “damaging our national security, undermining the integrity of the next election, and violating his oath to the American people.”
Trump will be the fourth president in U.S. history to face impending impeachment. President Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were acquitted by the Senate, while President Nixon narrowly escaped impeachment by resigning amidst the Watergate scandal.
“[Donald Trump] is a president who sees himself as above the law,” Nadler says in conclusion. “We must be clear: No one, not even the president, is above the law.”
