The Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler released a 55-page report of the basic evidence for the following US President Donald Trump’s impeachment, Politico reported.
“The earlier reports remain useful points of reference, but no longer reflect the best available learning on questions relating to presidential impeachment,” Nadler writes in the foreword, adding: “Further, they do not address several issues of constitutional law with particular relevance to the ongoing impeachment inquiry respecting President Donald J. Trump.”
Nadler endorses the reasons for the presidential wrongdoings with the further breach of criminal law. The committee does not deny the fact that the impeachment equals to canceling the election, pointing out that “No President is entitled to persist in office after committing ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’”
The author relies on Trump’s misuses of his authorities when called a Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on July, 25 for asking him to look into the Bidens family – that is the main ground for his dismissal.
The report draws the parallel between the House’s conduct and a “grand jury or prosecutor”.
“It is thus in the Senate, and not in the House, where the President might properly raise certain protections associated with trials,” the committee concludes.
