House Democrats have finally announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump, despite the fact they’ve had rather dismal poll trends in key battleground states.
Since the announcement was made, Trump has responded, stating that Democrats are still refusing to listen to one key fact in particular.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire:
In a press conference Tuesday, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) announced that the Democrats are bringing two articles of impeachment against Trump: “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”
Trump’s alleged abuse of power, Nadler and the Democrats contend, relates to his attempt to “pressure” Ukraine into investigating his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, which Nadler described in the press conference as having “compromised our national security and threatened the integrity of our elections.”
The Democrats have been pushing the false narrative that Russia helped President Trump win the 2016 election and that they, or Ukraine will help him win in 2020. It seems that they are setting themselves up to lose and claim that Trump won only because he had help from a foreign power.

The Democrats also maintain that the president’s unwillingness to cooperate with their inquiry is grounds for impeachment.
“Throughout this inquiry, he has attempted to conceal the evidence from Congress and from the American people,” said Nadler, in comments reported by CNBC. “Our president holds the ultimate public trust. When he betrays that trust and puts himself before country, he endangers the Constitution, he endangers our democracy and he endangers our national security.”
Neither one of the charges brought against the president can be found in the specified reasons listed under the Constitution’s impeachment clause, which reads as follows:
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
