Trump is charged with several articles. But most probably he will remain and be a President till the next elections at least. In the upper chamber of the United States, most individuals are Republicans. We can assume from this that they won’t sign the article.
On Wednesday, the House of Representatives impeached President Trump for obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. It will make him the third president in history, which is charged with face removal and high crime and high crimes by the Senate.
After a bitter debate that stretched into the evening and reflected the deep polarization gripping American politics in the Trump era, the votes on the two articles of impeachment fell mostly along party lines. It was a day of constitutional consequence and raging partisan tension.
The article on abuse of power accused Donald Trump of corruptly using the levers of government to solicit election assistance from Ukraine. The report says that it happened in the form of investigations for discrediting his political rivals of the Democratic party. Only two Democrats opposed this article. Of course, Republicans unite in opposition. With Speak Nancy Pelosi gaveling the vote to a close from the House rostrum, the item passed 230 to 197.
Concerning the second charge, a third Democrat joined Republicans in opposition. The second charge was about the obstruction of Congress. The vote was 229 versus 198.
For a historic trial beginning early next year in the Senate, the impeachment votes set the stage. The final day of testing on whether to acquit the 45th president or convict and remove him from the office will be ten months before Mr. Trump faces re-election. But the timing is uncertain.
No Real Power against Trump
Late Wednesday, Ms. Pelosi said that she might wait and not send the articles to the Senate. She wants to hold materials as leverage in a negotiation on the terms of the trial.
Most probably in the Republican-controlled chamber will acquit the United States President Donald Trump. The Democrats think that these articles will aggravate the cultural and political fault lines that Mr. Trump’s presidency supposedly brought into dramatic relief. Some believe that public consciousness will remember Trump’s position as a barrage of angry tirade tweets in front of thousands of his cheering supporters.
The republican party says that the abuse of power is not a statutory crime. When Trump supposedly used his privilege and instructed witnesses not to comply with requests to testify, Democrats should have to the courts at that time.
Democrats think that Trump pressured Ukraine’s president to announce investigations into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. Before that, there were years of speculation. Accusations against Trump usually were profiting from the presidency, payoffs to a pornographic film actress, tax evasion, and so on. But it never became the reason for his impeachment.
The United States President Donald Trump and his administration have some goods statistics on his side. After the Civil War, it is the first time the U.S. went without an economic recession in a decade. The unemployment rate is also historically low. In the upper chamber, there are mostly Republicans. So, there is a high probability Trump will sustain his position at least before the next elections.
