Nancy Pelosi is convinced of this: "There is enough evidence to remove the president. " The speaker (President) Democrat of the House of Representatives was offensive on Sunday, January 12, in an interview with ABC. It must be said that his camp is playing big, while Donald Trump continues to denounce a "Hoax" about the dismissal procedure, launched in December 2019.
"Why should I have the stigma of impeachment stuck to my name when I have done NOTHING? ", stormed the president Sunday on Twitter. He again attacked the Democratic opposition, demanding that "The nervous Nancy" Pelosi and Adam "Schiff the deceiver", who oversaw the investigation against Mr. Trump, will be heard as witnesses.
Why did Nervous Nancy allow corrupt politician Shifty Schiff to lie before Congress? He must be a Witness, and so should she!
In a later tweet, Donald Trump said the case should be closed without trial, saying that any Senate proceedings would give undue credibility to what he considers. like a " witch hunt " waged against him by his Democratic opponents.
Nancy Pelosi had agreed Friday to send next week the Donald Trump indictment to the upper house, after several weeks of arm wrestling with the Republicans, thus opening the prospect of a dismissal trial imminent. She confirmed on Sunday that she would rally her troops on Tuesday to set the schedule.
The current White House tenant last month became the third president in US history to be indicted in the House of Representatives – "Impeached" in English – in the Ukrainian case. However, he is unlikely to be removed from the Senate, where the majority Republican politicians remain loyal to him. "We trust impeachment. And we believe there are enough testimonies to remove him ", on the contrary assured Nancy Pelosi.
The testimony of John Bolton, a major issue
Elected Republicans and Democrats cross iron on another major subject, the testimony of John Bolton, former national security adviser to Donald Trump. Bolton said he was ready to testify at the US president's trial, provided he was formally summoned to the Senate. However, Donald Trump hinted on Friday, interviewed by Fox News, that he could prevent one of his former right-handers from being heard, citing the “Executive privilege”.
For her part, Nancy Pelosi has not ruled out, if the Republican majority in the Senate does not summon Mr. Bolton, to hear him in the House of Representatives, controlled by the Democrats. Democrats accuse Donald Trump of abusing his power by asking Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, a potential presidential rival in November.
They voted on December 18, 2019 in the House of Representatives two articles of impeachment of Donald Trump, for " abuse of power " and "Hindering the smooth running of the Congress".
