After month of ceaseless cautions, Speaker Nancy Pelosi ultimately announced, that the House of Representative will commence an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.
This official announcement came on Tuesday following yet another leak of allegation against President Trump allegedly pressuring the current President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate potential presidential contender, former Vice President Joseph R Biden, and his son, which move is described as an attempt for the invitation of foreign interference into America’s domestic political affair.
Ukraine Prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko earlier told Bloomberg News in May, that he has found no evidence of wrongdoing by Mr. Biden or his son in the matter that now became of political interest to President Trump.
In a widely followed press conference, Speaker Pelosi states, “The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution”.
President Trump has earlier promised to release the transcript of the conversation that brought up the stern political brouhaha, it thus so far remained a promise.
“The action of the Trump Presidency revealed dishonourable facts of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections,” Ms. Pelosi stressed.
Mr Trump’s usual satiric reaction was again twitted “Such an important day at the United Nations, so much work and so much success, and the Democrats purposely had to ruin and demean it with more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage. So sad for our Country” he twitted.
Historically, two prolong process saw two (2) setting American Presidents subjected to and successfully impeached under Article 11, section 4 of the U.S Constitution. President Andrew Johnson of Tennessee and Bill Clinton were both accused of “high crimes and misdemeanours”, and impeached in 24 February 1868 and in December 19, 1998 respectively.
President Trump has controversially, been elected into office amidst allegation of Russian meddling into the 2016 U.S election. For a successful impeachment to be registered a third majority in the Upper House needs to back the process, thus a requirement for at least twenty (20) Republicans to knob against Trump, this is very unlikely but could greatly injure the populist’s political career.
