House Speaker Pelosi Announces Articles of Impeachment Draft


VOA News Dec 5, 2019

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the drafting of articles of impeachment against U.S. President Donald Trump in a speech at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., Thursday, December 5.

READ MORE: U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed Democratic leaders on Thursday to “proceed with articles of impeachment” against U.S. President Donald Trump, declaring that he has “abused the power of his office.”

Pelosi, in a brief but dramatic statement, contended that the Republican U.S. leader had defied the norms of presidential conduct, violating his sworn obligation to uphold the U.S. Constitution by asking Ukraine to launch an investigation of one of his chief 2020 Democratic challengers, former Vice President Joe Biden, to help him as he runs for re-election.

“The facts are uncontested,” Pelosi said. “The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security.”

Pelosi asked Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, where impeachment hearings started Wednesday, and other Democratic committee chairs to draft the impeachment articles.
