Democrats accuse trump of betraying US
House Democrats brought forward two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday. The impeachment charges based on his actions towards Ukraine declare that he “betrayed the nation”.
The specific charges aimed at President Trump are “Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress”.
These charges have been announced against the backdrop of a contested run-up to the 2020 election.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said they were upholding their solemn oath to defend the Constitution. Trump responded on Twitter proclaiming, “WITCH HUNT!”
Voting is expected in a matter of days for the judiciary committee and if it passes the bill still has to go through the full house, and then to the senate.
