The President is accused of abuse of power for personal interests and obstruction to Congress. The first article in the indictment refers to Trump’s pressure on the Ukrainian leadership to search for compromising evidence against his political opponent Joe Biden, using the delay in military assistance as a leverage. The second article concerns the White House’s attempts to impede the investigation of the impeachment case, namely, the refusal to provide the required documents, pressure on witnesses. One example of an attempt to influence witnesses was Trump's statement to former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Jovanovic, who testified in Congress on the impeachment case.

It is expected that on Wednesday these articles will be submitted for approval by the entire House of Representatives.

As we reported, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives moved closer on Wednesday to impeaching U.S. President Donald Trump as a key House committee began debating formal articles of impeachment that are expected to be brought to the House floor next week
