Democrats are spending time in the US House of Representatives at the weekend, preparing for what may be the last week in achieving accountability that has been going on for months and threatening the presidency of Donald Trump.

The Democratic Representatives in the Judicial Committee of the House of Representatives is scheduled to hold a meeting behind closed doors today, Saturday and tomorrow, Sunday, to examine the evidence against the Republican President and formulate formal charges referred to as accountability items, so that the committee can recommend that the entire parliament vote on the list on Thursday at the earliest .

On Friday, the White House told Chairman of the Committee Jerold Nadler that Donald Trump would not participate in the committee’s sessions and described the investigation as “totally unfounded”.

Nadler expressed his disappointment with the decision and said in a statement, “The American people deserve answers from President Trump.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi asked the commission on Thursday to draft the indictment, after weeks of investigations into Trump’s request from Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, one of the most important contenders for the Democratic nomination in the US presidential election next year.

The approval of the Democrats-controlled House of Representatives, on the accusations that seem almost certain now, will lead to a Senate trial to determine whether Trump should be removed from office, but Republicans who have a majority in the Senate have shown little support for the president’s removal.

The Judicial Committee focuses on two possible accountability items that accuse the President of using his authority to deal with Ukraine and obstruct the work of Congress by refusing to cooperate with the investigation committees.

Democrats must also resolve the issue of drafting a third clause accusing Trump of obstructing justice, according to a report by former Special Adviser Robert Mueller on the federal investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

The Judicial Committee holds a plenary session on Monday, and Republicans have also requested a full day for procedures to examine their own evidence, including a 110-page report that says the investigation was concluded because there was no evidence of a responsible crime to be committed.
