The "Evidence of wrongdoing by the president" Donald Trump are "Clear and difficult to contest", says Adam Schiff, the Democratic leader of the Intelligence Committee. He announced on Monday, November 25 that he would release in December his investigation report – to determine whether Donald Trump abused his powers by asking Ukraine to investigate the Democratic Joe Biden -, opening the next stage of this explosive procedure.

After the historic public hearings of twelve witnesses and about fifteen in camera statements, the committees of the House of Representatives in charge of the investigation "Are preparing a report that brings together the evidence gathered so far"says the Democrat in a letter to his parliamentary group.

"We now have to decide whether this conduct is compatible with the presidential functions and whether the constitutional process of impeachment is justified.continues Adam Schiff, who says he is ready to hear new witnesses. As the record shows conclusively, President Trump conditioned official acts – a meeting in the White House that the new Ukrainian president desperately wanted and crucial US military help – that Ukraine announces mock investigations. political motivations, which would help Donald Trump's reelection campaign. "

This report will be sent to the Judicial Committee " a little after " the end of this week of parliamentary holidays, he says, from Tuesday, December 3. She will be responsible for establishing, on the basis of this report, the charges that may be brought against Donald Trump in Congress. The House, with a Democratic majority, would then vote for or against this indictment. Then he would return to the Senate, controlled by the Republicans, to lead the trial of Donald Trump. Given the still strong support he enjoys in his ranks, the Republican president would probably not be dismissed.
