House Judiciary Committee releases report outlining historical arguments for impeachment – CNN, CNN


The report does not accuse President Donald Trump of commit impeachable offenses, but itlays the groundwork for Monday’s hearing, where evidence against Trump will be presented by the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees, as well as the possible introduction of articles of impeachment next week.

“The Framers worst nightmare is what we are facing in this very moment,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said in a statement. “President Trump abused his power, betrayed our national security, and corrupted our elections, all for personal gain. The Constitution details only one remedy for this misconduct: impeachment. The safety and security of our nation, our democracy, and future generations hang in the balance if we do not address this misconduct. In America, no one is above the law, not even the President. “

The report is an update to the Judiciary Committee reports that were issued in 2019 and 2019 during the impeachment proceedings of Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

    “The earlier reports remain useful points of reference, but no longer reflect the best available learning on questions relating to presidential impeachment,” Nadler wrote in a forward introducing the report. “Further, they do not address several issues of constitutional law with particular relevance to the ongoing impeachment inquiry respecting President Donald J. Trump.”
