Impeachment process of the US President Donald Trump officially began on Wednesday. Trump allegedly asked Ukraine to probe Biden and his son Hunter in a bid to smear him and boost his reelection in 2020. President Trump insists that there was no ‘quid pro quo’ a Latin word meaning a favor returned for something.
Intelligence committee is led by Adam Schiff and Devin Nunes. Adam Schiff of the Democrats has accused Trump of exploiting Ukraine’s vulnerability for his personal gain. Schiff promised to do everything possible to protect the identity of the whistleblower. Devin Nunes for the Republican attested that the hearing is televised for Democrats theatrical purposes.
William Taylor testified that military aid was tied to investigating Biden for domestic political gain. Ambassador Taylor affirmed that Ukraine is a strategic partner of the US.
George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State said he had concerns that there were efforts to initiate political motivated prosecutions.
Richard Nixon resigned in 1974, before completion of the impeachment process. Nixon impeachment process was triggered by his involvement in the Watergate scandal. Attempts to impeach Clinton in 1997 failed to see the light of the day, after its rejection by the Senate.
