JAKARTA (TheInsiderstories) – United States (US) House of Representatives ready for a historic President Donald Trump’ impeachment  with the majority now in favor ahead of voting. The debate on the two articles of impeachment that charge the head of state with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. 

In his “angry letter” to house speaker Nancy Pelocy on Dec. 17, Trump shouted the impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history.

The articles of impeachment introduced by the House Judiciary committee are not recognizable under any standard of constitutional theory, interpretation, or jurisprudence.  Includes no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses whatsoever.

“You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!,” urged by Trump

He continued, “By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy.  You dare to invoke the Founding Fathers in pursuit of this election-nullification scheme—yet your spiteful actions display unfettered contempt for America’s founding and your egregious conduct threatens to destroy that which our Founders pledged their very lives to build.”

On the first claim “Abuse of Power,” he asserted, is a completely disingenuous, meritless, and baseless invention of the Pelosi imagination. He acknowledge that he had a totally innocent conversation with the President of Ukraine.

“I said to President Zelensky:  “I would like you to do us a favor, though, because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it,” he noted.

While for the second claim, so-called “Obstruction of Congress” he rated is preposterous and dangerous. He revealed, House Democrats are trying to impeach the duly elected president for asserting constitutionally based privileges that have been asserted on a bipartisan basis by administrations of both political parties throughout the nation’ history.

He scream out, “As you know very well, this impeachment drive has nothing to do with Ukraine, or the totally appropriate conversation I had with its new president. It only has to do with your attempt to undo the election of 2016 and steal the election of 2020!”

If the lawmakers passed the vote will become third ever impeachment in American History. Earlier the House has impeached Adrew Johson and Richard Nixon.
