Trump Impeached On Charges of Abuse of Power

BBC. (2019, December 19). Trump impeachment: A very simple guide. BBC   News.

In 2019, Donald Trump was impeached for the first time on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He was accused of improperly seeking help from Ukraine to dig dirt or damaging information on a rival political opponent, Joe Biden to increase his chances for winning the 2020 elections, which he pleaded not guilty. Trump became the third president to be impeached after a majority of the House of Representatives voted to impeach him. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter was working for a Ukrainian company when Joe Biden was serving as Vice president and it was claimed that Trump was trying to get damaging information about Joe Biden’s son work with Ukrainians because it would negatively affect Biden’s chances in the upcoming elections. According to the charges, to make sure Ukraine provided the information Trump needed, he dangled two bargaining chips one being withholding $400 million military aid to Ukraine, and also a meeting with the Ukrainian president. The military aid to Ukraine had already been authorized by Congress already.
