U.S. President Donald J. Trump Impeached
December 18, 2019 is a day that goes down in history. U.S. President Donald J. Trump was impeached by a majority vote in the U.S. House of Representatives.
House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, has not yet given the passed Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, which is led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Senators are to be impartial jurors at impeachment trials. McConnell has made public statements that he is not impartial and is working with White House personnel on how to conduct Trump’s trial.
During the debate in the House, Republicans representatives presented their defense of Trump by accusing Democrats of wanting Trump impeached before he was sworn into office. They made redundant and spurious arguments that Trump did not abuse his power when he made an Ukrainian investigation into Crowdsource and Joe and Hunter Biden conditional on releasing defense aid to Ukraine that Congress had already approved.
According to the Guardian;
“newly-released government emails show that it took only about 90 minutes after Donald Trump’s infamous July telephone call to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy for White House officials to order the Pentagon to freeze military funding for Ukraine.”
Congress is on break until after the Holidays.
