On Wednesday (Dec 17) President Donald Trump will be the subject of an impeachment vote. But before the House gets the opportunity to vote on the two charges against 45, he made sure that he sent an aggressive six-page letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Trump writes int he letter the attempt of impeachment is “subverting America’s democracy.”
The letter was received on Tuesday stating, just ahead of the vote and called the vote an “unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers.”
“You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment! By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy,” Trump scribed.
President Trump is facing two charges of extorting a foreign power to investigate a political rival. Back in July, Trump stopped federal funds, $400 million in military aid, to head to the Ukraine. On the phone, Trump would suggest Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to research Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. He is facing both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The Associated Press details if Trump is voted against, he would be the third president ever impeached and reports state a majority of the House is in favor to impeach the president. However, it would then head to a Republican Senate.
