H.Res.755 are the articles of impeachment presented by the House of Representatives calling for the impeachment of President Trump. The articles cite abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
ARTICLE I: ABUSE OF POWER
Article one states that the President of the United States, in violation of his constitutional oath, abused the powers of the Presidency by soliciting the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States Presidential election. Specifically, to open in an investigation into his candidate, former Vice President Biden in exchange for the release of Congress approved foreign military aid.
President Trump also sought to pressure the Government of Ukraine to take these steps by conditioning official U.S. Government acts of significant value to Ukraine on its public announcement of the investigations. President Trump engaged in this scheme of conduct for corrupt purposes in pursuit of personal political benefit.
In so doing, President Trump used the powers of the Presidency in a manner that compromised the national security of the U.S. and undermined the integrity of the U.S. democratic process. He thus ignored and injured the interests of the Nation,” states the resolution.
President Trump is accused of engaging in this course of conduct by:
・Soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations into his political opponent, former Vice President Biden;
・Promoting a discredited theory promoted by Russia alleging that Ukraine—rather than Russia—interfered in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election;
・Withheld the release of $391 million of United States taxpayer funds that Congress had appropriated for vital military aid to oppose Russian aggression; and
・After facing public revelations of his actions, he released military aid and continued to urge and solicit Ukraine to investigate his political rival.
The resolution calls these actions “consistent with President Trump’s previous invitations of foreign interference in United States elections” and accuses President Trump of abusing the powers of the Presidency by ignoring and injuring national security and other vital national interests to obtain an improper personal political benefit.
ARTICLE II: OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS
The House of Representatives engaged in an impeachment inquiry focused on President Trump’s corrupt solicitation of the Government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 United States Presidential election.
As part of this impeachment inquiry, the Committees undertaking the investigation served subpoenas seeking documents and testimony deemed vital to the inquiry from various Executive Branch agencies and offices, and current and former officials.
In response, without lawful cause or excuse, President Trump directed Executive Branch officials not to comply with those subpoenas. President Trump thus interposed the powers of the Presidency against the lawful subpoenas of the House of Representatives, therefore abusing the powers of his high office and obstructing Congress.
The resolution sites that President Trump directed the White House and other Executive Branch agencies to defy a lawful subpoena by withholding the production of documents sought therein by the Committees. In response to which the Department of State, Office of Management and Budget, Department of Energy, and Department of Defense refused to produce a single document or record.
Other of the administration’s officials defied subpoenas for testimony, namely John Michael “Mick” Mulvaney, Robert B. Blair, John A. Eisenberg, Michael Ellis, Preston Wells Griffith, Russell T. Vought, Michael Duffey, Brian McCormack, and T. Ulrich Brechbuhl.
This abuse of office served to cover up the President’s own repeated misconduct and to seize and control the power of impeachment—and thus to nullify a vital constitutional safeguard vested solely in the House of Representatives,” states the resolution.
The articles call for President Trump to be impeached and trialed by the Senate, removing him from office, and disqualifying him from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.
