Impeachment hearings live updates: Lawyer for Democrats calls Trump ’a clear and present danger’ as he argues case for removal – The Washington Post, The Washington Post


At the heart of the Democrats’ case is the allegation that Trump tried to leverage a White House meeting and military aid, sought by Ukraine to combat Russian military aggression, to pressure President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch an investigation of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as a probe of an unfounded theory that Kyiv conspired with Democrats to interfere in the (presidential election.)

Democratic chairmen will unveil articles of impeachment Tuesday

Leaving a meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) On Monday, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (DN.Y.) told reporters that he and the chairmen of other House committees would announce specific articles of impeachment against Trump at a news conference at 9 am Tuesday.

“I think that a lot of us believe that what happened, with Ukraine especially, is not something that we can just close our eyes to” Engel said. “People feel very strongly about it, as do I… I think we’re doing what we have to do, we’re doing what the constitution mandates that we do.”

He added, “We’re setting the right course for the country.”

The exact content and wording of the articles was a mystery late Monday evening even to member of the House Judiciary Committee, which is expected to take up the matter later this week, preparing the articles for a House floor vote next week. But broadly, multiple lawmakers said House Democratic Leaders were focused on two major areas of presidential misconduct: abuse of power related to Trump’s alleged attempt to compel Ukraine to conduct politically motivated investigations and obstruction of Congress for his stonewalling of House document and interview requests.
