The US House Judiciary Committee has released the formal written articles of impeachment against Donald Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Under the first article for “abuse of power,” Trump is accused of having “solicited the interference of a foreign government” in the 2020 presidential election when he allegedly asked Ukraine’s government to announce investigations that would “benefit his reelection” and harm the election prospects of political opponent Joe Biden.

The nine-page document claims Trump conditioned the release of congress-approved aid to Ukraine on the opening of such an investigation.

It says these acts were “consistent with” Trump’s “previous invitations of foreign interference” in US elections.

Trump’s actions, the document continues, injured US national security and vital national interests, in order to obtain “an improper personal political benefit.”
