Chairman of the Judicial Committee, Jerry Nadler, unveiled, on Tuesday, the indictments against US President Donald Trump.

Nadler said – during a press conference – that two indictments have been filed against US President Donald Trump, adding that the first list is the abuse of power, a crime that requires the president to be held accountable when he uses the powers of his public office to obtain inappropriate personal interests while ignoring and exposing national interests to harm.

Nadler stressed that this is exactly what President Trump did when he asked the Ukrainian president and pressured him to interfere in the 2020 presidential elections, noting that this harms American national security and undermines the integrity of the upcoming elections and is a breach of the oath that he swore to the American people.

Nadler explained that the second list is to obstruct the US Congress, noting that the president who declares that he is above accountability and the American people and the powers of Congress that gives Congress the right to hold the president accountable is a president who sees himself above the law, “Therefore we must be clear that no one is above the law until the president Himself.

Democrats in the US House of Representatives want President Donald Trump charge as part of an impeachment for abuse of power and obstruction of Parliament. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, presented the charges on Tuesday. This step is a prerequisite for a vote on Trump’s possible impeachment in plenary session of the Parliament. Background of the action against Trump are allegations of the Ukraine affair.

“One thing is clear: nobody, not even the president, is above the law,” said Nadler. The Judiciary Committee will formally deal with the charges this week. Following this, the Plenum of the House of Representatives can come to the actual vote on the charges. According to reports, this should happen even before Christmas.

The Democrats are the majority in the House of Representatives, so Trump’s case seems likely. Trump would be only the fourth president in the history of the United States, against which a process of impeachment begins.

Trump said : “political madness”

After the House of Representatives, the process continues in the Senate, where Trump’s Republicans have a comfortable majority. A conviction and impeachment by the Senate, for which it needs a two-thirds majority, but is unlikely, because it would require 20 Republican senators change the camp.

The Democrats accuse Trump of urging Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rival, Joe Biden, in an attempt to influence the 2020 presidential election in his favor. They see as proven that Trump has made the announcement of such investigations a meeting with Selenskyj in the White House and the release of military aid for Ukraine dependent. The Democrats also accuse Trump of obstructing the House of Representatives’ investigation into what is happening.

Trump called the Democrat-driven impeachment just before the announcement of the charges as “sheer political madness”. His previous term was one of the “most successful presidencies,” the economy was doing great, and he had done absolutely nothing wrong, wrote Trump on Twitter.

At a hearing in the Judiciary Committee on Monday, the Democrats had again made serious allegations and spoke of “overwhelming evidence” against Trump. “President Trump has asked himself about his country,” said committee chair Nadler at the end of the session.

Trump has violated his oath of office. “The facts are clear. The danger to our democracy is clear, and our duty is clear. The Constitution provides a remedy for such behavior. “This remedy is impeachment”, Nadler announced, “This committee will proceed accordingly”.
