With the 2020 elections looming over us, things have taken a dramatic twist.

Over the past couple of months, an impeachment inquiry against President Trump has been underway. And today, it has officially happened: Donald Trump has become the third U.S. President to be formally impeached.

The speaker announced that she, as well as the U.S. House of Representatives, had started a formal inquiry into the impeachment of the President of the United States.

We’ve all heard this word being thrown around for a while now but do we truly know what it means? In political terms, impeachment is “the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official.”

This does not mean that the official can be removed from Office.

However, it does mean that, under criminal law, they are being charged with offenses that could lead to the removal of their political status after they lose their position in Office. They could also face a prison sentence among many other dire consequences.

The current President of the United States, Donald Trump is believed to have engaged in criminal activity.

The first is an abuse of power. It accuses the President of trying to pressure Ukraine to smear his political rival, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, in a bid to cheat his way into winning the 2020 elections.

And, in doing so, released a snippet of an April telephone conversation that he had with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine that contradicted the summary of the call released by the White House in the months prior.

And the two men could be heard praising each other’s political ingenuity while predicting an era of good relations between the U.S. and Ukraine.

Their transcript of the call revealed that Trump had actually urged President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden, the frontrunner to take down Trump in next year’s election, as well as Mr. Biden’s son.

As he was clearly seeking foreign help in an attempt to tarnish Biden’s reputation in the run-up to the 2020 elections.

$400 million of military aid, to be precise.

It seems like the President is nowhere near ready to own up because he has consistently insisted on his innocence.

The President is accused of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.

The House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep, Jerrold Nadler, said the president had been blocking the ongoing impeachment inquiry dating from the 2016 election, with it all relating to his alleged Russian interference.

Trump has profusely denied both these hefty charges and maintains that it was appropriate to ask Ukraine to look into the alleged corruption.

Pelosi has stressed the importance of these charges. “The actions taken to date by the President have seriously violated the constitution. The President must be held accountable. No one is above the law.”

And with the 2020 elections on the horizon, this will certainly pose a threat to Trump’s re-election.

Even members of his own cabinet have turned against him.

And he has done it in the most Donald Trump way possible.

Because how else would he address his country and the rest of the world?

Oh yeah, I’m sure he was so focused on the issues that the United Nations were presenting…

Because how else can Trump defend himself these days?

The President has been incredibly defensive, and has even gone as far as to call the inquiry a “witch hunt.”

Just the 2 words capitalized: “PRESIDENTIAL HARRASSMENT!’ Anger, blame, fear, all in one single tweet.

Trump started to panic.

And is evidently rather baffled as to how one of “the most successful Presidencies ever” could even be facing impeachment in the first place. Breaking the law is one explanation, Donald…

The day before the full house was scheduled to vote, he penned a lengthy and rather angry 6-page letter to Nancy Pelosi, in which he accused the House Democrats of “declaring open war on American democracy.”

And, addressing the House Speaker, wrote, “You do not know, nor do you care, the great damage and hurt you have inflicted upon wonderful and loving members of my family.”

Trump went on to accuse Pelosi of violating her own oath of office: “You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying ‘I pray for the President,’ when you know this statement is not true unless it is meant in a negative sense,” Trump wrote in the letter. “It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!”

“You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, Impeachment!” Trump wrote, in a rather bizarre sentence.

And has regularly referenced the dropping poll numbers of the “Democrat Scam”…

And the Republican’s efforts today to block the articles of impeachment, it was all to no avail.

After months of investigations and inquiries, the President has finally faced his inevitable impeachment.
