The Intelligence Committee of the United States (US) House of Representatives, one of the two entities making up the US Congress, launched a first ever public hearing into the impeachment hearing of republican President Donald Trump.
Trump is accused of holding up Congressional approved aid to Ukraine on the insistence of a publicly declared Ukrainian inquiry into his political opponent, former Vice-President Joe Biden, and his son per the son's seat on a Ukraine gas company. Such an action runs afoul of the US Constitution and presidential powers as delegated by the law of the American Republic.
I will not dive into a he testified this, or that here in respect to the first day's hearing, yet I'll opine that the evidence from a career diplomat per infractions of the president of the rules and limitations of the chief executive, was compelling.
Moreover, from the first day of testimony in the impeachment hearing before the US Congress, I submit that evidence presented affirmed the dangers to governance posed by businessmen, who for some reason or another, hold and act as if the faithful and true exercise of government is the same as running a for-profit entity. They are not and they will never be the same.
American government is government of the people, by the people and for the people. It is not a for profit private company that only accounts to shareholders. Government remains for the people and their exercises to forge better and safer relations with allies bribery and racketeering free.
So the process of the first impeachment hearing of President Donald Trump has started and it will pan out as it would.
