House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump over his contacts with Ukraine; these include 'abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.'

Jerry Nadler said before announcing the articles of impeachment:

“Today, in the service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Judiciary Committee is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the President of the United States of committing high crimes and misdemeanors."

“It is an impeachable offense for a president to use the powers of his office to seek a personal benefit,” Nadler added.

Those present at the announcement were committee chairs:

  • Jerry Nadler
  • Adam Schiff (D-CA)
  • Eliot Engel (D-NY)
  • Maxine Waters (D-CA)
  • Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)
  • Richard Neal (D-MA).

It is also noted that “bribery" is not included in what the Democrats will introduce articles of impeachment, according to The Washington Post.

The absence of 'bribery' in the articles is significant due to the fact it is what their impeachment effort focused on, after having claimed Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a July 25 phone call.

On Monday, Jerry Nadler contested that Trump's re-election may not be "fair" in an interview with NBC host Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press."

The Democrat said if the House votes to impeach Trump, but the Republican-controlled Senate acquits him, resulting in Trump not being removed from office, it wouldn't be a fair election.
