Democrats move a step closer to Trump impeachment proceedings


In the United States, the Democrats’ House of Representatives Judiciary Committee is moving ahead with the opening of an investigation to launch Donald Trump’s impeachment proceedings.

US Congressional Democrats on Monday (September 9th) took another step towards the possible opening of an impeachment procedure for US President Donald Trump, an option that still divides the opposition to just over a year of the presidential election.

The powerful Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, in the hands of Democrats, should formalize Thursday, September 12, the opening of an investigation to determine whether to initiate an “impeachment” against the President, said Monday its president, Jerry Nadler.

The commission, which has already been conducting investigations for several months on Donald Trump, will for the first time blacklist these investigations in the legal framework planned to dismiss a president.

Its members will vote on a resolution that clarifies the “procedures” to be followed in order to “determine whether to recommend a dismissal vote against President Donald Trump”.

Investigation of Russian Interference

According to Jerry Nadler, the parliamentary inquiry will have a wide field. It will first focus on Donald Trump’s pressure to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign to determine whether he has been guilty of obstructing justice.

The commission will also look into the possible conflict of interest related to Donald Trump’s hotels and properties since he entered the White House.

Finally, she will look into paying money to buy the silence of Donald Trump’s alleged mistresses during the 2016 campaign, which could be a violation of campaign finance laws.

For months, the Democrats have questioned the desirability of launching an impeachment procedure, knowing that the Republican majority in the Senate almost certainly condemns it to failure.

The leader of the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi, remains reluctant to this idea for fear that the discussions in Congress will conceal the substantive debates of the campaign for 2020.

The camp of those who support the launch of this procedure continues to grow, however, and since this summer, the majority of elected representatives in the lower house have rallied.

In parallel, Democratic parliamentarians opened a new front against the Trump administration on Monday by announcing the opening of an investigation into suspicions of pressure exerted on Ukraine by the White House. They suspect Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has insisted that this country provide evidence against the son of the favorite Democratic primary Joe Biden who has long had interests in a Ukrainian gas company.
