Democrats will accuse Trump of abuse of power in impeachment

Two days later, on the way to Trump: the Abuse of power and attempt at the obstacle in that justice may be done.

the Chairman of the legal affairs committee in the House of Representatives, Jerrold Nadler, says that the Democrats in the committee will have accused president Donald Trump for the two offences at a rigsretsproces.

He says that these offences are the abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

Trump, who is a republican, looks according to Nadler themselves "as above the law".

- We must make it clear that no one - not the president - is above the law, he says.

the Democrats are moving quickly toward a vote to determine whether or not there will be raised an impeachment against the president.

the Committee on legal affairs will, according to several sources close to the matter to vote by Thursday on the sections which must be central in a case against Trump.

If approved in committee, should the House of Representatives by a vote that is expected in the next week, take a position on them.

A possible impeachment against Trump will be the third against a sitting president. An impeachment does not take place in the courts, but in the Senate.

If it comes to impeachment of Trump is expected in January.

Three experts in the constitution of the UNITED states said during a hearing in Congress earlier this month that Trump clearly tried to use another country - Ukraine - to help him be re-elected in 2020.

It is the House of Representatives, who alone have the right to ask a president of a rigsret. The democrats have the majority, and they are firmly decided that Trump must be made for a rigsret attempts to push Ukraine to dig the dirt up on the democrat Joe Biden.
