Senate Impeachment Trial: Democrats Allege “Abuse of Power”


On this Thursday, the Senate impeachment trial remains ongoing.

The trial comes after weeks of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sitting on impeachment articles. Pelosi did this with the hopes of bargaining with the Senate and gaining leverage over how they’d agree to hold a trial; in the end, however, the Speaker handed over the papers with zero deals or concessions from the Senate whatsoever.

At this time, the upper chamber of Congress is focusing on the impeachment article which alleges abuse of power.

What’s Happening Now?

Moments ago, Rep. Jerry Nadler professed that the first article of impeachment charges Trump with “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Nadler maintains that the president engaged in “abuse of power, betrayal of the nation, and corruption in elections.” The House representative continued, stating for these reasons, President Trump must face removal from office.

These are common talking points which Democrats have stood by since the inception of impeachment proceedings. Leftist lawmakers continue to assert that the president asked Ukraine to investigate 2020 Democrat Joe Biden whilst threatening to withhold aid from the foreign government. President Trump says this isn’t so, as does Ukraine leader Zelensky.
