Draft Articles of Impeachment Against President Donald J. Trump

The U.S. House of Representatives is stalling on action to formally launch an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. I suppose one reason for that could be that the House has not yet written his Articles of Impeachment.

Using both the Nixon and Clinton Articles of Impeachment as a guide, I went ahead and drafted the following Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. A summary of the articles are as follows:

  1. Perjury
  2. Obstruction of Justice
  3. Contempt of Congress
  4. Abuse of Power
  5. Campaign Finance Violations
  6. Emoluments Violations
  7. Compromise and Cover-up

I should note: Clinton was impeached for Articles 1 and 2; and Nixon’s Articles of Impeachment included Articles 3 and 4.
