House Democrats Announce Two Articles of Impeachment Against Donald Trump

Dec 10, 2019

On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss House Democrats’ decision to unveil two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. 

They are charging him with abuse of power for pressuring Ukraine for his own political gain and blocking Congress’s attempt to investigate. The Judiciary Committee plans to begin debating the articles as soon as tomorrow and could vote by Thursday to recommend them to the full House for final approval. The House is expected to vote to impeach a sitting president for the fourth time in American history. Trump is then expected to stand trial in the Senate in early 2020. What questions do you have about impeachment?
