"This is sheer Political Madness!", Trumps says as Democrats unveil articles of impeachment against President

Democrats in the house of representatives on Tuesday announced formal articles of impeachment against United States President Donald Trump.

Trump, who was accused of abusing power and obstructing congress, goes into history as the fourth US president to face impeachment.

The Democratic-controlled house is expected to vote on the charges, or articles of impeachment, next week.



It is almost certain to vote to impeach the Republican president, setting the stage for a dramatic trial in the Republican-controlled senate, likely to begin in January.

The house judiciary committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, said Democrats had to take action because Trump had endangered the US constitution, undermined the integrity of the 2020 election and jeopardised national security.
“No one, not even the president, is above the law,” Nadler said at a news conference that included house speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and Democratic leaders of committees involved in the impeachment probe.

“Our elections are a cornerstone of democracy … the integrity of our next election is at risk from a president, who has already sought foreign interference in the 2016 and 2020 elections.”
Trump has denied wrongdoing and calls the inquiry a hoax. The White House has refused to participate in the hearings in the House because it says the process is unfair.

Democrats have moved rapidly in their impeachment inquiry since launching an investigation on September 24 into allegations that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate a Democratic political rival, former Vice-President Joe Biden, in the 2020 elections.

They accused Trump of abusing power by withholding aid to Ukraine, a vulnerable U.S. ally facing Russian aggression, as well as dangling a possible White House meeting to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch the investigation.
"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.

"Nadler just said that I “pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 Election.” Ridiculous, and he knows that is not true. Both the President & Foreign Minister of Ukraine said, many times, that there “WAS NO PRESSURE.” Nadler and the Dems know this, but refuse to acknowledge!"

Trump attacked the impeachment effort in a Twitter post on Tuesday, saying to impeach a president when the country has such a strong economy “and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!”

Republicans say Democrats are seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 election with a “witch hunt” against Trump, who denies he did anything wrong.
“Americans don’t agree with this rank partisanship, but Democrats are putting on this political theater because they don’t have a viable candidate for 2020 and they know it,” Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign manager, said in a statement.
Trump is unlikely to be convicted in the senate, given it is controlled by his party, but his impeachment may yet have an impact on the campaign trail as Democrats seek to retake control of the White House.
