At the Nato summit in London on Tuesday jostled by Donald Trump as usual, strong, and put on, among other things, with Emmanuel Macron. But while the President was in London made the headlines, made his political opponents at home against him in mobile: The democratic majority of the intelligence Committee in the house of representatives released on Tuesday its report on the Ukraine affair and the document handed over in the evening, the judiciary Committee, where the discussions about possible charges against Trump to start.
The Report of the house intelligence Committee (read the full report here) accused Trump, for his re-election "Makes the interference of a foreign, namely the Ukraine," to have operated. The evidence to be "overwhelming".
The President did: obstruction of Justice, and his Power abused. Trumps personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and close associates like Vice President Mike Pence, the foreign Minister, Mike Pompeo, as well as the acting chief of staff Mike Mulvaney had been involved "in a months-long campaign" to move to Kiev investigations against Trumps democratic rival Joe Biden.
Trump ship and Pelosi called "mentally ill people"
even before the publication of the investigation report of the President in London had become abusive, and Adam Schiff, the Chairman of the intelligence Committee had scolded, as a "liar" and a "very sick man". Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, the democratic speaker of the chamber of deputies, were offended by Trump as a "mentally disturbed people".
Yesterday, Tuesday, the Democrats released the report from Ukraine.
The volleys from the British capital will not help the President, of course: In Washington, a Impeachment for abuse of power and obstruction of Justice as safe. Convincing arguments against an indictment Trump has hardly, the Republican henchmen of the President, this will not prevent however, to excuse his behavior in the Ukraine affair as completely normal.
After they had complained several Republican representative and presidential spokesman Hogan Gidley about the unilateral actions of the Democrats, invited Jerry Nadler, the democratic Chairman of the judiciary Committee, Trump and his attorneys to participate. "We do not intend to appear for the interview on Wednesday", dismissing then Trumps law, Pat Cipollone assistance on Sunday.
The sale of Anti-Impeachment Merchandise from Trumps fan shop brings in money.
The strategy of the President and his lawyers have been from the beginning very simple: The issuance of documents is denied, witnesses prohibited the testimony before Congress, the proceedings boycotted. And as in the case of the investigation to the intelligence Committee's Republican members will try also in the judiciary Committee, to withdraw the Impeachment by a parliamentary maneuvers and crowd-pleasing performances, the legitimacy.
in order for the mobilization of Trumps base: donations for the defense of the President comes to be made daily, the sale of Anti-Impeachment Merchandise from Trumps fan shop, such as T-Shirts with the inscription "Bull-ship" brings in money and allows the registration of the buyer in Republican databases.
The Democrats fear to lose control over the hearings in the judiciary Committee. Behind closed doors Nancy Pelosi had admonished their force, the hearings, sober as an "academic discussion" to be held. The Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren expressed, however, doubts and warned of a "circus atmosphere" in the Wake of Republican interference.
"Nothing to see
" As a democratic weak spot could be, of all things, Jerry Nadler. The Chairman of the judiciary Committee does not enjoy, although Pelosis trust, acted in the past, but always sovereign. The hearing of trump's Ex-campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski fell in September to a shameful spectacle, at the Nadler, the Overview is not lost.
Above all, the two Trump-Familiar Jim Jordan and Doug Collins are trying, as members of the judiciary Committee, the democratic majority office Nadler look. Collins, the ranking Republican on the Committee, released on Sunday in an Interview with Fox News, the Slogan of his party: It was "nothing to see, what the President done would have".
