With the 2020 elections looming over us, things have taken a dramatic twist.
On Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representatives announced that a formal impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump is to take place due to allegations that he used foreign power in order to "harm a political rival."
In simple words, Donald Trump is getting screwed over for messing around with Vladimir Putin during the 2016 U.S. Elections. When I say it like that, it sounds like a very political episode of Desperate Housewives. Well, that is the current state of U.S. politics, but who am I to judge?
But since news of the impeachment has started gaining momentum, Trump has done the only thing he can do... head over to Twitter and post some very angry tweets, of course.
Keep reading for all the details surrounding this story...
On Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi made an announcement that shocked the world.

What does "impeachment" actually mean?
via: ShutterstockWe'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.

I'm sure we all knew it, but I'm just going to make the announcement:Our president is a criminal. The current President of the United States, Donald Trump, is a criminal.
The business tycoon is being charged with multiple offenses.

I mean, you should always weigh out the pros and cons before you do anything, but it seems as if Putin was a very convincing man, because Trump didn't even give a second thought as to what would happen if anyone got a sniff of his illegal behavior.
According to all the reports, the Russians heavily influenced the 2016 U.S. Elections.
via: ShutterstockSo much for democracy, huh? U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia was in fact behind the end result of the election by tipping the scales in favor of Trump when he went up against his arch-nemesis, Hillary Clinton.
Both presidents deny all the allegations.
via: ShutterstockBut two men who have lied and cheated their way into power are now telling the truth about their wins? We, the American people, aren't that stupid to believe that kind of bullsh*t, are we?
Some have gone as far as to accuse the president of treason.I'm glad we aren't in the 1800s anymore, because you know what happened to those who committed treason back then? (For reference, I am slowly running my index finger along my throat.)
Impeachment is a rare occurrence, so this announcement is historic.
via: YoutubeOn Tuesday evening, while in Washington, Pelosi said this: "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 pose a threat to Trump's re-election.
via: ShutterstockI mean, did you really think that, after ruffling almost every single U.S. Representative's feathers, that your position would be safe? Even members of his own cabinet have turned against him.
Let's not forget the hostility that comes from other world leaders.
via: ShutterstockApart from the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, of course. He's been in power for just under two months and he's already managed to f*ck up. After modeling his style to match with Trump's, Johnson decided he wanted to further follow in the footsteps of the once business tycoon. Now he's also facing criminal charges after the High Court's found him guilty of unlawful activity following his suspension of the British equivalent of the House. Yikes.
If this is the only support you have, then there's literally no hope for you...
