House Intelligence Committee Democrats say evidence of President Donald Trump’s misconduct and obstruction of Congress is “overwhelming,” in a new report released Tuesday detailing the allegations against the President involving Ukraine.
The 300-page report sets the stage for the impeachment of a US president for just the third time in history. The report stops short of outright recommending impeachment, saying that is a decision for Congress to ultimately make.
“The President engaged in this course of conduct for the benefit of his own presidential reelection, to harm the election prospects of a political rival, and to influence our nation’s upcoming presidential election to his advantage,” the report says. “In doing so, the President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the US presidential election process, and endangered US national security.” #CNN #News
