WASHINGTON—House Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday.
The Judiciary Committee will pursue an article of impeachment on abuse of power related to allegations that Mr. Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate a political rival. The second article will deal with obstruction of Congress, related to the president’s moves to block aides from participating in the impeachment investigation.
The article goes on to state the following:
The articles of impeachment were released after a probe that involved more than 100 hours of deposition testimony from 17 witnesses. The House Judiciary Committee could vote later this week, sending the articles to the House floor, where they are subject to immediate consideration and require a simple majority to pass. The House votes would be expected to fall largely along party lines and would move the case to the Senate for a trial, likely beginning in January. A two-thirds Senate majority would be necessary to convict Mr. Trump, and politicians from both parties believe that is unlikely.
“On this solemn day, I recall that the first order of business for members of Congress is the solemn act to take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated in her beginning remarks.
“Today, in service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Committee on the Judiciary is introducing two Articles of Impeachment charging the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, with committing high crimes and misdemeanors,” Rep. Jerry Nadler declared.
Rep. Adam Schiff claimed that President Trump’s “continuing abuse of his power has left us no choice.” “To do nothing would make ourselves complicit in the president’s abuse of his high office, the public trust, and our national security,” he added.
“The argument ‘Why don’t you just wait?’ amounts to ‘Why don’t you just let him cheat in one more election?'” Schiff declared.
Rep. Maxine Waters, who has long called for the president to be impeached, did not speak.
