In the first of these cases, US President Donald Trump is accused of putting his political concerns above the national interest.

Washington – Democratic House members on Tuesday unveiled two formal allegations related to President Donald Trump’s firing: abuse of power and obstruction by Congress.
First, he accuses Trump of putting his political concerns above the national interest. The second was to block congressional attempts to investigate, said Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
“Our president has the greatest public confidence. If he betrays that trust and confronts the country, it puts the constitution at risk and threatens our democracy and national security,” he said.
Nadler was accompanied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic chairman of the House committees.
“The facts are indospute and it’s a mandatory issue,” said Adam Schiff, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, which held several hearings. The Judiciary Committee is expected to vote this week on the positions announced the next day and enter the House of Representatives plenary session.

The House vote, which will undund in President Trump’s official dismissal, is still pending, though it is expected to take place before the end of 2019.
Democrats had a majority of 235 in the House of Representatives, compared with 198 Republicans, and almost certainly gave up their approval.

Then the trial will go to the Senate, where it will be dismissed. It will most likely fail because Republicans have a 53-47 majority and the dismissal requires a two-thirds majority.
The Democratic-dominated lower house of Congress has been working on congressional committees for nearly three months to build a political process against Trump to call on the Ukrainian government to investigate his political opponents.
The opposition believes Trump has abused his power by adjusting him to pay military aid to Ukraine and a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zielinski to help him launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter over corruption allegations.
They also believe that Trump obstructed Congress by trying to obstruct the investigation into him by blocking the statements of his administration officials.

Trump is the fourth president to face his political process, after Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998, both of whom were fired by the Senate, and Richard Nixon, who resigned in 1974 before the trial ended.
