U.S. Senate questions next move as the House marches toward impeachment

U.S. Senate questions next move as the House marches toward impeachment

According to the official documents, the House is presenting two articles - abuse of power, and obstruction of congress.

Naturally, the president didn't take too kindly to the news, once again denouncing the the proceedings as a "witch hunt".

To no one's surprise, President Trump refused to keep quiet Tuesday after House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment against him.

The president is accused of withholding aid to Ukraine for domestic political reasons.

Trump tweeted that to impeach a president "who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness". A vote by the full chamber next week is likely to make Trump the third USA president to be impeached by the House.

Another freshman Democrat, Rep. Dean Phillips, told CNN this week that he plans to support the articles of impeachment.

In the phone call to Ukraine's leader, Mr Trump appeared to tie U.S. military assistance to Ukraine launching investigations which could help him politically.

That's the only reason I say I don't see myself in such a big club like Bayern Munich ". Their coach thinks different to me I think.

Democrats say Trump endangered the U.S. Constitution, jeopardized national security and undermined the integrity of the 2020 election by pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 telephone call to investigate Biden, a former vice president and a leading contender for the Democratic nomination to face Trump in next year's election. "As far as I'm concerned, it is abuse of power".

"Even this week the president's lawyer was back in Ukraine seeking to revive the debunked conspiracy theory promoted at the president's behest". This theory has been widely debunked, and USA intelligence agencies are unanimous in saying Moscow was behind the hacking of Democratic Party emails in 2016.

Trump has called the phone call "perfect", and Republicans in Congress have said the president did nothing to warrant impeachment.

Trump has often mocked the impeachment effort targeting his three-year presidency, confidently predicting, assuming the House impeaches him in the coming days, that he will be vindicated by the Republican-majority Senate at a trial in January.

A Senate vote requires a two-thirds majority to convict and remove the president - unlikely in this case, given that Mr Trump's party controls the chamber.

"The Judiciary Committee is announcing two articles of impeachment charging the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, with high crimes and misdemeanors".

President Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached.
