Fewer Americans Care About Impeachment, Could Spell Trouble for Democrats

"Within these parameters, and guided by fidelity to the Constitution, the House must judge whether the President's misconduct is grave enough to require impeachment", the report states.

The White House on Friday blasted the impeachment inquiry as "completely baseless", signaling it would not seek to defend the president in the hearings to draw up formal charges against him. "Last week we had our first hearings with the law professors and Jonathan Turley put it to bed about how they're actually abusing power". The report is essentially an update to the general impeachment guidelines, which explain when and how a U.S. president can be impeached.

The Saturday report also justified the Democrats' decision to commence the impeachment ahead of the 2020 election, despite Trump running for a second term. They also break down when neither side can agree on what adds up to impeachable behavior. "His counsel, according to the House rules, is going to report to the committee tomorrow".

This reality does not stop the Democrats from suggesting that Trump is guilty, not only of putting his personal political advantage above a longstanding imperialist foreign policy initiative-the real reason for the Central Intelligence Agency "whistleblower" complaint that touched off impeachment-but of actual treason. "Reduced-Size.pdf">report presents evidence of obstruction of justice by Trump for activity including the firing of FBI director James Comey; ordering the White House counsel to fire Mueller; trying to have the attorney general take over the special counsel investigation; and ordering the White House counsel to deny the earlier order that he fire Mueller.

Trump and his aides have made clear that they now see his impeachment in the House as inevitable and have shifted their focus to the Senate, where Trump allies remain confident Democrats will not have the votes to convict and remove him from office.

This is the fourth time in history Congress has moved to impeach a president.

"President Trump abused his power, betrayed our national security, and corrupted our elections, all for personal gain".

Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler appeared on several Sunday network television talk shows to outline the Democratic case against Trump and indicate that his committee would take action this week.

Not only did Meadows say he doubted any House Republican would vote to impeach, he said, "I think there is more pressure on the Democrats to come along and vote to exonerate the president".

Trump and his allies acknowledge he likely will be impeached in the Democratic-controlled House, but they also expect acquittal next year in the Senate, where Republicans have the majority.

Democrats have been working through the weekend as articles are being drafted and committee members prepare for a hearing Monday to hear evidence from the House Intelligence Committee, which investigated Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

Nadler echoed this allegation in the course of his appearances Sunday on network television, repeatedly suggesting that Trump had engaged in a pattern of collaboration with Russian Federation, first in the 2016 election campaign and now in the run-up to the 2020 campaign.

Obstruction articles could be broken up into obstruction of Congress and obstruction of justice, or the two could be combined.

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy criticized Democrats for their timeline, which he said was unfairly aimed at preventing the nation's voters from making their own choices in the 2020 election.
