The US is slitting up by Democrats & RepublicanUnofficialChina December 25, 2019 0 COMMENTS
Trump seems to be relieved from Trade War with China temporary, but would not be too relax for his Christmas holidays. Just few hours ago, he twitted 3 posts anger venting against Democrats for impeachment.
USA Today: “The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach Trump, who became only the third U.S. president to be impeached. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he believes there is “zero chance” the GOP-led Senate will remove Trump from office.”
Since controlling the House of Representatives in 2018, even after the Mueller report was released, Democratic leaders have been wary of raising impeachment, which has not cleared the president’s obstacles to justice. However, Ukraine’s appeal and its consequences have changed this calculus.
Democrats approved the impeachment clause, accusing Trump of abusing power and obstructing Congress. They accused the president of asking Ukraine to investigate his political opponents, soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 election. Board of Ukrainian Energy Corporation. Trump said he did not do anything wrong and called the impeachment investigation a “scam.”
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over trial trials, prepare for the call for witnesses, and allow senators to submit evidence based on rules agreed by McConnell and Schumer.
Schumer argued in a letter to all senators on Monday that the situation in Trump’s trial was different from that of Clinton. Clinton was bombarded after a long investigation by an independent lawyer, and witnesses have testified under oath multiple times.
Schumer rejected Clinton’s model, saying he would wait until the speech was made before deciding to witness, “it would not be possible to obtain such evidence because it might be too late”.
Since Trump take over the White House, conflicts between Republican and Democrats are getting worse. The only moment we see them united together was to pass anti-China bills, such as Hong Kong Bill, Xinjiang Bill, and Taiwan Travel Bill.
Democratic leaders have been looking for right reason(s) of raising impeachment which finally come when Trump is withholding $400m in assistance to Ukraine to push Kyiv to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.
Impeachment further deepen the contradiction between parties regardless the outcome of trial.
