Resolution impeaching President Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors

On December 10, 2019, the House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Trump saying he had abused the power of his office and obstructed Congress in its investigation of his conduct regarding Ukraine.

1. Solicitation of the interference of a foreign government in the 2020 US Presidential Election.
President Trump acted both directly and through his agents within and outside the US government by corruptly soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigation into a political opponent.

2. Abuse of Power
President Trump abused his power of office by directing the White House to defy lawful subpoenas and withhold the production of documents sought by the Committees and by directing current and former Executive Branch officials not to cooperate with the Committees

By these actions, President Trump acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to manifest injury of the US and demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law.

In a previous article by Common Cause , is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy, stated that by condoning Trump’s behavior through inaction would be a permanent stain that our democracy might never recover from. Simply put, President Trump is a danger to the integrity of our government, the safety of our citizens, and the trust in our democratic institutions. We cannot lose sight of the fact that the people are the ultimate source of governmental power and through our vote, we transfer that power to elected representatives who govern until the next election.
