House Democrats are on course to impeach President Trump by Christmas, with a big announcement expected Tuesday morning. Sources tell the New York Times that the House Judiciary Committee worked through the night Monday to prepare articles of impeachment to be unveiled at a 9am news conference by Nancy Pelosi and other House leaders. The sources say the articles will charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. “A lot of us believe that what happened with Ukraine especially is not something we can just close our eyes to,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel said, per the AP, after leaving a meeting of committee chairmen at Pelosi’s office late Monday.
The meeting followed a daylong House Judiciary Committee hearing in which Trump’s conduct was described as a “clear and present danger” to national security. Pelosi said Monday night that no final decision had been made, the Washington Post reports. “You think I’m going to tell you the articles of impeachment?” she said to reporters. “We’re in a place where our members, our leadership of our committees of jurisdiction have now gotten the last input,” she said. “They’ll make a determination, a recommendation as to how we will go forward and what the articles will be.” Sources tell Politico that the House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the articles Thursday, which will be followed by a vote on the House floor to impeach Trump.
Then the presser about the whole process…..
Tuesday brought another historic milestone in the impeachment process against President Trump. Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders unveiled two articles of impeachment against the president—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, reports the Hill. Trump, meanwhile, lashed out in a morning tweet. “To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country’s history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!” he wrote.
In Tuesday’s news conference, House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said Trump brought this on himself by using the powers of his office to “seek a personal benefit,” a reference to Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. “He endangers our democracy, he endangers our national security,” said Nadler, per the AP. The 2020 election “is at risk,” he added, and “that is why we must act now.” Next steps: The judiciary panel is expected to approve the articles of impeachment as early as Thursday and send them to the full House for a vote next week.
