Congress today released two articles of impeachment to the public.

The first article is regarding abuse of power, specifically referring to when Trump, “solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States Presidential election. He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence the 2020 United States Presidential election to his advantage. President Trump also sought to pressure the Government of Ukraine to take these steps by conditioning official United States Government acts of significant value to Ukraine on its public announcement of the investigations. “

The second article is regarding obstruction of justice, which includes him pressuring, “without lawful cause or excuse, President Trump directed Executive Branch agencies, offices, and officials not to comply with … subpoenas.”

 

Here is what Congress had to tweet about it:

Rep. Joseph Neguse | 09:39 am

The Framers prescribed impeachment in the constitution chiefly because they were concerned with abuses of power, a betrayal of our national interest and attempts to corrupt the integrity of our elections.

Rep. Dina Titus  | 09:09 am

The two articles of impeachment introduced today are intended to prevent President Trump from continuing to ignore the Constitution and undermine our democracy. I will vote for both.

Rep. Steny Hoyer  | 08:38 am

The 2 articles of impeachment presented by the @HouseJudiciary this morning seek to hold the President accountable for these two serious crimes: bribing a foreign government to interfere in the 2020 election obstructing Congress in order to cover it up.
