Donald Trump impeached by US House for abuse of power, all eyes on senate now

In the past two previous presidents were impeached, were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton and they were acquitted by the Senate

Washington: On Wednesday President Donald Trump railed against a Democratic Party “consumed with hatred” after he was impeached for abuse of power and blocking Congress.

The Republican leader said “We’re creating jobs and fighting for Michigan, the radical Left in Congress is consumed with envy and hatred and rage, you see what’s going on,” the Republican leader said at a campaign rally in the state. “These people are mad.”

Trump said the Democratic Party controls the House of Representatives where the votes took place, was “trying to invalidate the ballots of tens millions patriot of US.”

A Democrat leader said they had “no choice” but to formally charge the Republican party president, whose impeachment along sharp party lines places an ineradicable a stain on his record while driving a spike ever deeper into the US political divide. Adam Shiff said “What is at risk here is the very idea of America,” the lawmaker who headed the impeachment inquiry, ahead of the vote.

Donald Trump will now stand trial in the Senate, where his Republicans hold a clear majority and are expected to exonerate him.

Four months after a house vote came as whistleblower blew open the scandal of Trump pressuring Ukraine’s president to investigate his potential White House challenger in 2020, the veteran Democrat Joe Biden.

Despite the statement from 17 officials that Donald Trump benefitted his office for domestic political gain, the president maintained his innocence throughout the impeachment inquiry and furiously criticizing it as a “witch hunt,” an “attempted coup” and on Wednesday as an “assault on America.”

In fact, his rivals from the Democratic Party will need as many as 20 Republicans to turn against him to get the two-thirds majority they need.

According to an analysis by the Washington Post, chances that Trump will be removed from office are slim: he still enjoys the support, and only three Republican senators are consistent critics of his.

In the history of the United States, there has never been a president been removed from office through impeachment.

In the past two previous presidents were impeached, were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton and they were acquitted by the Senate.

The Chief Justice of the US, John G Roberts Jr., will preside over Trump’s Senate trial, which will most likely be held in early January 2020.
