Impeachment of Trump is about ‘patriotism’ not about Republicans or Democrats: Pelosi

US President Donald Trump

Washington, Dec 11: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said impeachment charges against President Trump were ‘about patriotism’ and nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats.

This statement of Pelosi comes after House Democratic leaders announced Tuesday they will bring two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, thus making him the fourth president in US history to face impeachment.

The announcement of impeachment articles marks the culmination of an intense, fast-moving investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine and represents a historic choice for lawmakers with less than a year before the next election.

Our president holds the ultimate public trust,” said House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler.

“When he betrays that trust and puts himself before country, he endangers the constitution, he endangers our democracy and he endangers our national security.”
Democrats charge that Trump abused his office by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rivals ahead of the 2020 election while withholding a White House meeting and $400 million in US security aid from Kiev. And they say that Trump then obstructed the investigation into his misconduct with a blanket blockade of subpoenas and refusing to allow key senior officials to testify before Congress, CNN reported.
