The House of Representatives of the United States has decided to accuse the president of the country, Donald Trump, of two charges – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress – in the process of ‘impeachment’, as announced on Tuesday by the head of the Commission Judge of the lower house, Jerry Nadler.
“It is a prosecutable offense for a president to exercise the powers of his office to obtain an inappropriate personal benefit by ignoring or harming the national interest. That is exactly what President Trump did when he pressed Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 presidential elections.” , said about the charge of abuse of power.
Concerning the obstruction of Congress, he has argued that “a president who declares himself above justice, above the American people and above the power of ‘impeachment’ of Congress – which is precisely to protect against threats to our democratic institutions– is a president who considers himself above the law. “
