Democrats Present Persuasive Opening At Impeachment Trial

Democrats are all prepared to present a strong case of impeachment against the current President of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump.

House Democrats have started their side of the story, by putting up a persuasive argument that his action to seek favor off the Ukrainian PM not only undercuts the US elections but could have also jeopardized national security. Trump was charged with misusing his seat of power to arm-twist his way into pushing for a probe into the lives of a promising Democratic contender Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Trump is said to have withheld important military aid to Ukraine in this regard, something which has been seen as a breach of trust and violation of Congress-led vote to the same.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead impeachment manager and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, laid out the allegations underpinning the two articles of impeachment. The first article accuses him of misusing his power to influence the leader of another country, and the other accuses him of impeding Congress’s investigation by blocking some witnesses and documents.

The Democrats, in laying out their case, continued to try to persuade Republicans to support calling new witnesses and documents, which Democrats argue will provide more details about Mr. Trump’s interactions with top aides, including former national security adviser John Bolton and acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

The Republicans have taken a biased stand and have said that because Democrats don’t have a strong case, they wish to call for witnesses. They boast about being able to dismiss the whole issue like in a jiffy.

The White House had instructed many witnesses, including Mr. Bolton, not to testify in the House probe. Any new witnesses would have to be deposed privately before they could testify before the Senate.

The majority of Republicans is more than the Democrats, making it a tough for Trump not to be impeached. So while he may really have exploited his position, he might actually go scot-free. The world leaders at the World Economic Forum, already sense a successful re-election. They are now starting to plan of way ahead if Trump gets re-elected for a second term.
