Quick, understandable, and with clear signs: for example, the task of the Nancy Pelosi was the only member of her party in the initiation of impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump . The speaker of the house of representatives took that the investigations of the democratic majority would not be in the secret service full Committee.
The democratic staff of the Committee is currently working on a Report that will summarize the witness statements of the last couple of weeks and evaluate it. Thereafter, this report shall be forwarded to the judiciary Committee of the house of representatives that will write the "Articles of Impeachment" against the President. Before Christmas the whole of the representatives could vote on house about where the vote of the democratic majority of the chamber should clearly fail.
abuse of power and bribery
in January, the proceedings against Trump would take place in the Senate, the chair introduced John Roberts, the chief judge of the Federal Supreme court. As a Prosecutor, appointed democratic members and lawyers acted specifically. The President would be defended by lawyers of his choice, the one hundred senators of both parties, acted as jurors.
The Democrats must decide within a few weeks, what charges do you want to carry against Trump together. Probably the President's abuse of power and bribery will be placed to the load.
parts of the Ukraine affair, not, perhaps, be elucidated.
As Trump, the issuance of documents is denied, and his staff has also prohibited, in front of the intelligence Committee to testify, could be, as in the case of Richard Nixon's obstruction of Justice is also one of the charges. In the case of internal deliberations, the democratic leadership in Congress debated whether to formulate the Russia-special investigator Robert Mueller against Trump's allegations as a separate charge.
However, parts of the Ukraine affair are not, perhaps, be elucidated: Neither Trumps lawyer Rudy Giuliani, a key figure, even the foreign Minister, Mike Pompeo, and Trumps the acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney were not questioned, the recently resigned Minister of energy, Rick Perry and Ex-security adviser John Bolton appeared before the house intelligence Committee. You all could provide crucial clues.
However, it is open to the Democrats, in December, or even during the proceedings against Trump in the Senate, additional witnesses to be summoned. So, for example, the Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnas, of the Giuliani's liaison to Ukrainian sources, wants to pass on his Knowledge. Parnas was arrested in October for illegal campaign contributions to Republicans and has handed over to the intelligence Committee through his lawyer, apparently, already documents.
In Washington, it was speculated on Monday, Parnas could be Giuliani, especially, and Devin Nunes, the highest-ranking Republican members of the intelligence Committee, to be dangerous. Nunes is considered one of the most devoted followers Trumps in the capital and should have tried, according to Parnas, in Europe dirt against Joe Biden and his son Hunter to find.
in Case of Parnas’ are true statements, would have been the Republican efforts in the Ukraine, as well as in Vienna and other places in Europe, far more extensive than previously known. Nevertheless, the risks for Pelosi and her party are significant: According to the current state of the proceedings against the President in the Senate is expected to end with an acquittal. In addition, it is not clear whether the process of Donald Trumps will diminish the chances for re-election in November 2020.
