Dems Announce 2 Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Dems Announce 2 Articles of Impeachment Against Trump.

The articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump were announced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Tuesday morning.

They focus on Trump's alleged abuse of power and his alleged obstruction of Congress regarding its Ukraine investigation.

We must be clear: No one, not even the president, is above the law, Jerrold Nadler, House Judiciary Committee Chairman, via 'The Washington Post'.

Democrats allege that Trump used his office to pressure the President of Ukraine to investigate business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Trump is accused of withholding military aid from Ukraine as a "quid pro quo" to further pressure the Biden investigation.

Speaking to reporters, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called impeachment "a question of duty.".

Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, released a statement calling the impeachment "political theater," saying "[democrats] don't have a viable candidate for 2020 and they know it.".

The Judiciary Committee will vote on the articles on Thursday.

The full House of Representatives will likely cast votes next week
