House Democrats Unveil Two Articles of Impeachment Against Trump


House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump over his contacts with Ukraine: Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“Today, in the service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Judiciary Committee is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the President of the United States of committing high crimes and misdemeanors,” Nadler said prior to announcing the articles of impeachment.

“It is an impeachable offense for a president to use the powers of his office to seek a personal benefit,” Nadler added.

The charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stem from second-hand allegations brought forth in a whistleblower complaint by a partisan CIA officer, who alleged President Trump attempted to pressure the leader of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in exchange for U.S. military aid. read more

  1. What marshmallow charges. I guess the Dems think they can get some GOPer Senators to impeach with that stuff. But it sounds more like Censure is waiting in the wings. Resistance, sometimes you have to swallow a little.

  2. The first charge is unfounded and a stretch, and the second charge could only happen if the first charge is allowed.
    IMO, the Dems are setting up to create more havoc after MrTrump is reelected.

  3. Assuming this goes to the Senate it sounds like Lindsay isn’t going to allow schiff or other congress slimeballs to testify. Lindsay can’t afford to have his truth be exposed. Him converting to be a Trumpers was an act. Still a TRAITOROUS BASTARD!!

  4. Forcing a compromise or horse trading on an issue with an opposing member of Congress is now an abuse of power and bribery by their standard.

  5. So let them push ahead with this and see how it turns out.

    I’m getting tired of all the Leftist impeachment crap (it started before he was even sworn into office) and would just like to see it finished and done with once and for all.

  6. The Senate’s trial should be 15 mins long: Dismiss the charges outright because the House process was not legitimate.

    And do it the way they did their every roll call vote: stone-faced and partisan.

  7. Unlike Bill Clinton, President Donald J. Trump is not going to bite his lower lip and tear up while he pretends to try to restore his marriage. Unlike Richard Nixon, President Donald J. Trump is not going to resign. Unlike Andrew Johnson, President Donald J. Trump is not going to hit the bottle and hope for the best. Hell no! President Donald J. Trump is going to use this Shampeachment to prove that there really is a Deep State, and they are willing to overturn the votes of 63,000,000 Americans to get their revenge for his election.

  8. Barr should charge Pelosi, Nadler, and Schitt with conspiracy to commit Treason.
    (with all the other co-conspirators in the media and DOJ and committee staff)

    And then hang them after their trial – showing them every deference that they showed President Trump.

    It’s called “justice.”

    izlamo delenda est …

  9. grahmnasty will bury the crimes of his fellow elected representatives because the “children”

    this is total bullshiff

    they only win because we let them

  10. And we the people have two charges to lodge against the asswipes infecting the body of Congress: “Flagrant abuse of constitutional authority and obstruction of we the peoples business”.

  11. It’ll be interesting to see how many dems in the house go along with this strategy. The ones who want to stay in congress for another term will avoid voting yea on this travesty.

  12. There is no such crime as obstruction of Congress. The Executive Branch of government is a co-equal branch. That’s why there is not a crime of obstruction of the Executive Branch or obstruction of the Judicial Branch. The Congress is not the premier branch of government that can lord over the others. It’s the concept of checks and balances and not a three tier system where one branch is above the others. The Democrats are out of control and must be reigned in by the system established by the Constitution.

  13. Someone write a book or make a movie depicting our Founding Fathers showing up in this timeline to witness what has become of their hard work resulting in the Constitution.

    I want to enjoy seeing them taking on the left (and RINOs) and whipping the snot out of each and every one of them. Execution for the ringleaders and jail for the rest.

    Then they will tackle the corruption, bloated government and all the other unconstitutional regulations, alphabet organizations, the welfare state and the Fed.

    Then, they will say, as they ride off into the sunset, “You have your Republic back. Try keeping it this time, or we will come back!”

    Sigh, a girl can dream, right!?
