Trump Impeached for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress

Posted on December 27, 2019 at 11:25 AM

It is official, after years of being the United States' most controversial president, with some refusing to even acknowledge him as the president...Donald Trump has been impeached. The House of Representatives recently approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. This makes him the third president in history to face removal by the Senate. President Trump was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Trump's reign has been plagued with very questionable behavior on his part and his complete and total lack of decency. Trump has continually taken to social media to berate and bash everything and everyone instead of as a president should, remain professional. He has exhibited a terrifying racist personality and has made grave and drastic decisions that have impacted the Americans negatively.


According to reports by the New York Times, "Only two Democrats opposed the article on abuse of power, which alleged that President Trump corruptly utilized the levers of government to solicit election assistance from Ukraine in the form of investigations to discredit his Democratic political rivals. Republicans were united in opposition. It passed 230 to 197, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi gaveling the vote to a close from the House rostrum. On the second charge, obstruction of Congress, a third Democrat joined Republicans in opposition. The vote was 229 to 198."


Following the impeachment, a trial has been set for early 2020. This trial will take place in the Senate as they will have the final say on whether to acquit the 45th president or convict and remove him from office. Persons on social media are begging for him to be removed altogether but remain excited that he has even been impeached, to begin with. It is a possibility for him to be acquitted but this will follow him for the rest of his life. So disastrous was his time served that many are desperate for relief. President Trump's reputation has been forever tarnished.


In true Trump fashion, instead of taking his L and showing remorse or even being willing to resign as his predecessors have done in the face of impeachment, he took to Twitter in a rage and sent out multiple angry tweets. “SUCH ATROCIOUS LIES BY THE RADICAL LEFT, DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS,” the president wrote. He continued, “THIS IS AN ASSAULT ON AMERICA, AND AN ASSAULT ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!!”


He later added, “I’m not worried. You don’t do anything wrong and you get impeached. That may be a record that will last forever.”

“But you know what they have done?” he said of Democrats. “They have cheapened the impeachment process.” Senators, he added, “are going to do the right thing.”


The nail in the coffin for President Trump’s presidency centered around a half-hour phone call that he made in July. During the call he pressured Ukraine’s president to announce investigations into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and other Democrats at the same time he was withholding nearly $400 million in vital military assistance for the country and a White House meeting.


According to reports, "Congress learned about the call after an anonymous C.I.A. official lodged a whistle-blower complaint in August. When Congress sought to investigate, the president ordered his administration to defy its every request, leading to what the House said Wednesday was a violation of the separation of powers and a de facto assertion by Mr. Trump that he was above the law."


Many believed that Trump would have never secured the oval office, but he did. Now he faces being thrown out. What do you make of this situation? Are you happy he has been impeached or are you a strong Trump supporter?

So there were people that actually voted no. That's crazy. Can you imagine if he had free run to do what he wanted. He is a dangerous man. How can some citizens still support him?

Good piece. Hopefully when the vote goes to the Senate he will be done for. He implemented a lot of changes that made life unbearable for a lot of people

The men running for the upcoming election don't seem to be that great to be honest. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I never liked Trump. I'm sure a lot of people don't. He will probably go down in history as the worst president. The funny thing is they all knew he was racist and cruel before so why they have a problem now

America will finally get a break. Don't know if they can get back to pre Trump status but it's a positive. No president can ever be great like Barack Obama

The United States is somewhere I do not ever intend on visiting. I will go elsewhere. It is such a racist country. They will probably overturn the whole ruling and reelect him.

Trump has destroyed the US which is astonishing cuz they weren't so good before. Obama was such a positive force for them. The only thing good about the US.

Donald Trump is the worst president the US has ever seen but they brought it all on themselves. There were so many signs that he was unfit to be a president

This should have happened a long time ago. Way back when he was so insistent on building a wall. Trump does not have one presidential bone in his body
