WHAT ARE THE CHARGES?
President Donald Trump is the third U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives. The Senate impeachment trial is expected to begin in earnest on Tuesday, January 21st, 2020.
Is the president guilty of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” as set out in the Constitution?
The House voted YEA on two articles of impeachment, both related to the president’s conduct with Ukraine: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Democrats are trying to build a case that Trump leveraged military and diplomatic aid to Ukraine in exchange for 1) investigations into former vice president Joe Biden and his son, Hunter; 2) a debunked conspiracy theory alleging Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election.
Republicans argue that Trump committed no offenses worthy of impeachment.
Now is a critical time to Tell Your Reps how you feel about impeachment.
