American President Donald J. Trump impeached by the House for abuse of power, obstruction of Congress.

He is now the 3rd US president in the history to face a Senate trial on ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ in office. Today, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting presiden.

Trump was impeached on two articles i.e. ‘abuse of power’ and ‘obstruction Congress’.

“The president withheld congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine, a country under siege, not to fight corruption, but to extract a personal political favor,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. “The president of the United States endangered our national security. The president undermined our democracy…betrayed his oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

“No one should be allowed to use the powers of the presidency to undermine our elections. Period,” McGovern added.

“When Jesus was falsely accused of treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers,” Loudermilk said on the House floor. “During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than Democrats have afforded this president in this process.”

“We are all mad,” the official said.”
