Democrats Unveil Articles Of Impeachment

House Democrats have formally unveiled the articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. The list of charges includes two broad counts.

The AP reported this morning that the list of charges includes abuse of power and obstruction that stem from the president’s alleged attempts to exchange an Oval Office visit and aid to Ukraine for the announcement of an investigation into Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma.

President Trump responded with a tweet calling the impeachment process “sheer madness.”

There is substantial evidence for the abuse of power charge. A call summary released by the White House shows the president asking for a “favor” after Ukrainian President Zelensky requests anti-tank missiles from the US. The favor included an investigation of Crowdstrike, the company that investigated the DNC hack in 2016 and which does not have a presence in Ukraine, as well as a specific request to investigate the Bidens. Many Republicans have expressed concern about the call.

The obstruction article is less certain. House Democrats have not pursued legal action to back up requests for information and testimony by Trump Administration officials. The Trump Administration is claiming executive privilege.

President Trump has maintained that his call with Zelensky was “perfect.”
