House of Representatives chaired by Democrats have charged Donald Trump with two articles of impeachment that could see him booted from White House.
US 45th president Donald Trump has been charged with two articles of impeachment by the house, that could see him ousted from office over claims he abused his power and obstructed Congress.
Democrat Chair of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler revealed the articles akin to charges in Washington DC Tuesday.
And House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff said Trump had committed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.
According to Nadler claims, the president had imperiled US national security by trying to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate political rival Joe Biden’s son in return for a White House invite, as well as $400m in military aid.
The obstruction of Congress charge centers around claims that Trump tried to frustrate the investigation into his alleged abuse of power during his communications with Zelensky.
Nadler further accused Trump of putting himself ‘consistently above country’. He said there is a ‘clear remedy for presidents who so violate their oath of office that is impeachment.’
