the Committee decided Friday after a 14-hour long debate, to recommend the impeachment of president Donald Trump.
the legal affairs Committee in the House of Representatives in Congress, by vote, recommended the initiation of impeachment of president Donald Trump.
After having debated for 14 hours, the committee decided by a vote on Friday afternoon Danish time to recommend the impeachment of the president.
the Democrats have a majority in the committee.
the Decision means that the entire House of Representatives must now vote on whether to raise an impeachment against Trump. This is expected to happen Wednesday of next week, say sources in the democratic party.
the Chairman of the committee on legal affairs, Jerrold Nadler, has said that the Democrats in the committee will have accused Trump of the two offences by a rigsretsproces. It is the abuse of power and obstruction of justice.
Trump, who is a republican, looks according to Nadler themselves "as above the law".A possible impeachment against Trump will be the third against a sitting president in UNITED states history. An impeachment does not take place in the courts, but in the Senate.
A spokesperson from The White House says that the president "looks forward to in the Senate to get proper treatment and fair trial".
the Case arose because of a telephone call, which Trump had with the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenskij, in the summer.
Donald Trump is accused of attempting to push Ukraine's president to investigate Joe Biden and his son for corruption.
the Democrat Biden is one of the Trumps political rivals and among the favorites to be the Democratic candidate in the presidential election next year.
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.
