Democrats have enough votes to impeach Trump – Report

0 302

Analysis carried out by Washington Post shows that a majority of House lawmakers said they plan to support at least one article of impeachment against President Trump even as the president railed against the process in an extraordinary letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Although Republicans insist on their support for the embattled president Trump, the vote is expected later today.

In his six-page letter to Pelosi, Trump accused Democrats of “declaring open war on American Democracy.” Pelosi later sent a letter to House Democrats urging them to join her in voting to impeach Trump.

The developments came as the House Rules Committee was meeting to set the parameters for the historic debate expected Wednesday over whether the president’s conduct toward Ukraine violated his oath of office.

At the heart of the Democrats’ case is the allegation that Trump tried to leverage a White House meeting and military aid, sought by Ukraine to combat Russian military aggression, to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch an investigation of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as a probe of an unfounded theory that Kyiv conspired with Democrats to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
