Four legal experts were on Wednesday questioned by the juridske committee in the u.s. congress. And three of the four were touching agree: Donald Trumps deeds should lead to an impeachment.
The third of its kind by a sitting u.s. president.
During the hearing said one of the four legal professors Pamela Karlan:
"If the president's deeds don't justify an impeachment, so I don't know what to do. Just the idea that an american president would seek the assistance of a foreign government in order to get help for an election campaign, would have been our ancestors, the nation's founders to feel disgusted."
It is Donald Trumps the alleged threat to withhold military assistance to Ukraine, if not the country's newly elected president, would find political dirt on the Trumps political rival Joe Biden, which forms the framework around the ongoing case.
the President's political opponents from the democratic party, believes that Trump put his own interests ahead of the nation and hereby midbrugte its power.
In the last week concluded the congressional efterretningskomité his work, where they after two weeks and 12 to the testimony called for impeachment. The next step on the stairs, an ongoing study in the legal committee.
And if all goes as most ekperter predicts, will rigsretssagen in the us senate start a short time after the new year.
Wednesday's only republican-convened juraekspert Jonathan Turley from university the George Washington University School of Law, believed that the democratic politicians are too busy with forcing the trial through. And without all the necessary witnesses believed Jonathan Turley, that there was a legal basis for a lawsuit against Donald Trump.
During the six-hour-long interrogation had both democrats and republicans question time. And the law-professor Michael Gerhardt, who was also called by the democrats, said:
"Our president has clearly committed numerous acts that should lead to an impeachment. He has tried bribery, he has abused his power, and finally, he has on several occasions deliberately sought to prevent congressional work. In the u.s. constitution guaranteed a separation of powers - the courts, congress and the president. And by his deeds, the president has deliberately attempted to undermine the u.s. constitution."
The legal committee continues its work the week out.
