Charges Revealed Against Donald Trump - Abuse and Obstruction

The Judiciary Committee of the United States (US) House of Representatives earlier today revealed charges of high crimes and misdemeanors against President Donald Trump.

The named articles of impeachment against Trump are: abuse of power per Ukraine aid; and obstruction of Congress.

A vote in the House of Representatives, one of the two chambers - the other being the Senate, which make up the US Federal Legislature, on the formal decision to impeachment the 45th president, could come as early as next week following a vote slated for this Thursday, in the Judiciary Committee on whether to go ahead with the charges of high crimes and misdemeanors. The president's trial could start before the Senate in January, 2020.

Trump is charged with abusing the office of president by withholding aid to ally Ukraine in order to get an investigation into his political opponent, Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden. 

The second charge against Trump is obstruction of Congress, which strikes at his blatant and public repetition of urging White House and other federal workers not to cooperate with the investigation led by the House.

And so the stage has been set to uphold the Constitution of the United States and its rule of law that aims to hedge against dictatorship within the American Republic.
