Trump willing to compromise national security for ‘personal political gain,’ Nadler said

Trump willing to compromise national security for ‘personal political gain,’ Nadler said

Wednesday's hearing, which marked the beginning of proceedings before the House Judiciary Committee, got underway with testimony from a panel of four legal experts - three called by House Democrats and a fourth called by Republicans - who were asked whether Trump's actions met the constitutional bar for impeachment. According to the testimony and to the publicly released memorandum of the July 25, 2019, telephone call between the two presidents, President Trump abused his office by soliciting the president of Ukraine to investigate his political rivals in order to gain personal political advantage, including in the 2020 presidential election.

If Congress fails to impeach here, then the impeachment process has lost all meaning, and, along with that, our Constitution's carefully crafted safeguards against the establishment of a king on American soil.

But Clyburn's admission on Tuesday that he has a preferred outcome for this process shows that private conversations are now beginning to spill out into the open - hours after the House Intelligence Committee released a 300-page report cataloguing Trump's alleged misconduct and on the eve of the House Judiciary Committee's scheduled public hearing with impeachment scholars.

Karlan argued that Trump committed several impeachable offenses and said the president abused his oath of office for personal reasons when asking Ukraine for a "favor" to investigate Democrats. The findings were sent to the Judiciary Committee. "Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump".

But another professor, Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, is warning against trying to impeach Trump.

Republicans protested the proceedings as unfair to the president, the dredging up of unfounded allegations as part of an effort to undo the 2016 election and remove Trump from office.

Mansoureh Mills, an Iran researcher at Amnesty, said there was a "general environment of fear inside of Iran at the moment". In recent days, however, access has been restored and glimpses of the government's brutality have surfaced.

"We're looking forward to making the Democrats pay the opportunity cost for this impeachment", he stated.

He calls Trump's call with Ukraine "anything but 'perfect", as the president claims.

He said if the authors of the U.S. Constitution were alive today, they too, would seek to impeach Mr. Trump.

Republicans slammed the Democratic impeachment inquiry, which Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the top Republican on the committee, dismissed as a "railroad job".

Wednesday's hearing marked a turning point in the impeachment inquiry of Trump.

While Napolitano mentioned his friendship with Turley, he said that Turley was "forgetting" that the House has sole-"s-o-l-e"-power of impeachment". Zoe Lofgren of California and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas and Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, who served as a House manager during the Senate's impeachment trial. The House Judiciary Committee is now determining whether to draw up and approve articles of impeachment, which if approved, would be voted on by the full House.
