Donald Trump impeachment
Democratic Socialists of America member Isaac Silver addressed the Socialist Alliance national conference about Donald Trump inciting his base to storm Capitol Hill and more.
By limiting the impeachment charges against US President Donald Trump, the Democratic establishment has left aside the major crimes Trump has committed — against humanity worldwide as well as the great majority of the US population, writes Barry Sheppard.
The Democratic impeachment inquiry began when a “whistleblower” revealed that US President Donald Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation of former vice-president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine and made a White House visit by Zelensky — which the new Ukrainian president dearly wanted — conditional on him stating publically that such an investigation was underway.
The House of Representatives impeachment inquiry into United States President Donald Trump was launched by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on September 24 and marked a departure from her previous stance of resisting calls by the so-called “left wing” of the party to begin the impeachment process.
The exposure, by an anonymous “whistleblower”, of Trump’s attempt to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter for alleged corruption, caused Pelosi to make this step.
