House Democrats are expected to reveal two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday that will be voted on later this month, thus cementing their attempts to remove him from office.
The two articles of impeachment will focus on “abuse of power” and “obstructing Congress,” The Washington Post reported.
During Democrats’ impeachment hearings last week on the House Judiciary Committee, liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz noted that the idea that a president could be impeached for “abuse of power” was an absurd notion.
The Republicans should have challenged Professor Feldman’s assertion that “abuse of office" is a constitutional basis for impeachment. These words do not appear in the Constitution and such vague criteria were rejected by the Framers.— Alan Dershowitz (@AlanDersh) December 5, 2019
It seems clear that the Democrats will vote to impeach President Trump in the near future, but what is not clear is whether voters will punish them for this knee jerk reaction.
Noticeably absent from The Post’s report on what Democrats will introduce articles of impeachment on was “bribery,” which is what their entire impeachment effort has centered around, as they have claimed that Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a July 25 phone call.
