Attacking the Free Press. President Trump has repeatedly attacked the concept of an independent press. His Administration has repeatedly and baselessly revoked press credentials for critical coverage.
He has dismissed the murder of a critical journalist, citing the economic partnership the US has with the offending nation. This demonstrates his unwillingness to respect and uphold the Constitution, and disdain for the crucial foundations to our free society.

The president maintained that a summary of his July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy showed that their talk was "perfect.
Trump is the third president to be impeached in the nation's year history. The two previous impeachments were also led by House Republicans.
Andrew Johnson was impeached in in part for replacing a Cabinet member without the advice and consent of the Senate.
Bill Clinton was impeached in for perjury and obstruction of justice for lying under oath about an extramarital affair.
Clinton apologized for his conduct before he was impeached, something that Trump, who was then in private business, said was a mistake.
Trump told Chris Matthews in that Clinton should not have cooperated with the investigation and should never have said he was sorry.
I think that's one of the things that happened. Johnson and Clinton were acquitted in the Senate, where a two-thirds vote is required for conviction and removal from office.
In the current Senate, leadership was already tangling over the next phase — Trump's impeachment trial. Schumer, D-N.
Politics Coronavirus U. News World Opinion Business. Follow NBC News. The report reached no conclusion about whether Trump had or had not committed criminal obstruction of justice.
Congressional support for an impeachment inquiry increased as a result. A formal impeachment inquiry was launched on September 24, , as a response to the Trump—Ukraine scandal , in which Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani pressed the Ukrainian government repeatedly since at least May to investigate Hunter Biden , the son of presidential candidate Joe Biden.
There was widespread speculation that the withholding of the aid was intended to force Ukraine to investigate Biden; Giuliani seemed to confirm that there was such a connection.
In an October 8, letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House stated it would not cooperate with "[their] partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.
On December 18, , the House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump almost entirely along party lines.
Following Trump's dismissal of FBI director James Comey , multiple Democratic members of Congress discussed an "impeachment clock" for Trump, saying that he was "moving" toward impeachment and raising the future possibility of bringing forth articles of impeachment for obstruction of justice and criminal malfeasance, if proof of illegal activity were found.
Nixon on a subpoena that went to United States Supreme Court. It may well produce impeachment proceedings, although we're very far from that possibility.
Later in May, news of Trump's disclosure of classified information to Russia led to further discussions about the possibility of impeachment, with Representative Maxine Waters D-CA alluding to the possibility,  along with writer Benjamin Wittes , legal scholar Jack Goldsmith , and others.
Around the same time in May, the revelation that the president had asked Comey to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn led still more observers, including Senator Angus King I-ME , to say impeachment might be in the offing.
Impeachment proceedings begin with a resolution being introduced in the House of Representatives. On May 17, Representative Green made a call for impeachment on the house floor   and House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz R-UT announced that he was issuing subpoenas on the memo FBI director James Comey wrote detailing possible obstruction of justice by the president.
However, some major Democratic figures stressed the need for caution, patience and bipartisanship in any potential impeachment process.
Administration officials said that White House lawyers were indeed researching impeachment proceedings and how to deal with them.
On June 7, an advance copy of Comey's prepared congressional testimony was submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee  in which he said the president attempted to persuade him to "let go" of any investigation into Michael Flynn on February On the morning of April 11, the President called me and asked what I had done about his request that I "get out" that he is not personally under investigation.
He replied that "the cloud" was getting in the way of his ability to do his job. He said that perhaps he would have his people reach out to the Acting Deputy Attorney General.
I said that was the way his request should be handled. I said the White House Counsel should contact the leadership of DOJ to make the request, which was the traditional channel.
He said he would do that and added, "Because I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know.
He said that was what he would do and the call ended. That was the last time I spoke with President Trump. The president will not be indicted while he is in office, and while there is some merit in talking about the judicial process, the impeachment process is the one that will bring him before the bar of justice.
On June 14, The Washington Post reported that Trump was being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for possible obstruction of justice relating to his actions in regard to the investigation into Russia.
Democrats in the House Judiciary committee demanded that hearings begin as soon as possible,  but the Republicans demurred, rewriting the request in favor of investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails.
In August , following controversial comments by Trump about the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia , Representative Steve Cohen announced he would introduce articles of impeachment because Trump had "failed the presidential test of moral leadership".
There was a brief debate about impeaching the president before a privileged resolution introduced by Representative Al Green was withdrawn.
On November 15, six Democrats including Cohen introduced H. At the time both the House and Senate were controlled by Republicans.
On December 6, a second privileged resolution on articles of impeachment , H. The resolution listed two articles, i. Among Republicans, voted to table the articles of impeachment and one did not vote.
Among Democrats, voted to table the articles of impeachment, 58 voted against tabling the articles of impeachment, four voted "present" and five did not vote.
Green's effort did not receive the support of Democratic leadership. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and minority whip Steny Hoyer issued a statement saying that "[l]egitimate questions have been raised about [Trump's] fitness to lead this nation," but "[n]ow is not the time to consider articles of impeachment" given ongoing investigations by congressional committees as well as the investigation by the special counsel.
On January 19, , Green brought up the resolution a second time. On this attempt his motion was defeated by a vote of — All the votes for the motion were from Democrats: three Democrats voted present and three Republicans and three Democrats did not cast a vote.
The matter became an issue, primarily for Republicans, in the midterm elections,   with both conservatives and the president himself warning of dire consequences if he is impeached.
On March 11, , Nancy Pelosi said, "I'm not for impeachment, Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.
And he's just not worth it. I don't think he is. I mean, ethically unfit. Intellectually unfit. Curiosity wise unfit. No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States.
With the Democrats in control of the House, and with a direct impeachment inquiry deemed somewhat toxic,  the work of investigations into Trump's possible crimes were divided into several committees while waiting for some outside force, such as the Mueller probe or the Southern District to force the Democratic leadership's hands.
On February 27, , Cohen publicly testified before the House Oversight committee on possible high crimes and misdemeanors committed by President Trump both before and after taking office.
White House officials dismissed the credibility of his testimony in advance, calling him a "disgraced felon" and "convicted liar".
During his testimony, Cohen described how he protected Trump from potential scandals during the campaign through payoffs. The testimony implicated the President as committing a minimum of 11 impeachable offenses.
A Department of Justice spokesperson called Nadler's subpoena "premature and unnecessary," detailing that the publicly released version of the report had "minimal redactions" and that Barr had made arrangements for Nadler and other lawmakers to review a version of the final report with fewer redactions.
House majority leader Steny Hoyer said, "Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point.
The caucus held a conference call on April 22 to discuss the matter. After reading the report, Representative Justin Amash R- MI in May became the first Republican member of Congress to call for Trump's impeachment, saying Trump had engaged in "impeachable conduct".
Amash was also critical of Attorney General Barr, stating that he felt Barr had deliberately misrepresented the contents of the report.
The report described ten actions by the president which could be construed as obstruction of justice. Investigators reached no conclusion about whether those actions amounted to a crime, indicating the evidence they had obtained presented "difficult issues" that prevented them from "conclusively determining" Trump committed no criminal obstruction.
On July 24, , Robert Mueller and several of his aides testified about the investigation's consequences before both the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees.
Both sessions were open and televised for the public. The over seven hours of hearings averaged The impeachment process by the full House proceeded from summer to December 18, , when the House voted to impeach Trump.
In the late summer and fall of , the House Judiciary Committee held a series of hearings and filed a number of lawsuits associated with drafting possible articles of impeachment.
The start of official proceedings was first revealed to the public in a court filing dated July 26, This assertion was repeated in another court filing in a suit seeking to compel the testimony of former White House Counsel Don McGahn ,  stating:.
The Judiciary Committee is now determining whether to recommend articles of impeachment against the president based on the obstructive conduct described by the special counsel, [ McGahn II.
Politico reported that during August, Nadler and other majority members of the HJC had been drafting a formal document delineating the legal parameters of an official inquiry and that this would be voted on September 11, The draft resolution was released to the public on September 9, ,  and approved on a party-line vote two days later.
The first hearings against a president in 21 years took place on September 17, , and featured the testimony of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Lewandowski exhibited a letter from President Trump stating that he was forbidden to answer questions due to executive privilege, even though he had never worked in the White House and was not entitled to it.
Several Republican members of the committee attempted to use a number of procedural laws but were ignored by democrats [ clarification needed ] to continue the proceedings.
Lewandowski, however, did admit to doing the things he was stated as doing in the Mueller Report. There were two other witnesses scheduled that day, and President Trump directed former top aides, Rob Porter and Rick Dearborn, not to appear to testify before Congress, which they did not.
On September 23, , the House Judiciary Committee was scheduled to hear the testimony of those suing the president over alleged violation of the Emoluments Clause.
In July a whistleblower complaint was filed by a member of the intelligence community, but the Director of National Intelligence refused to forward it to Congress as required by law, saying he had been directed not to do so by the White House and the Department of Justice.
Trump and his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani , had been trying for months to get Ukraine to launch an investigation into former vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden as well as his son Hunter Biden.
It was also revealed that Trump had blocked distribution of military aid to Ukraine, although he later released it after the action became public.
On December 18, , the House passed two articles of impeachment against president Donald Trump. On February 5th , Trump was acquitted by the Senate of all charges in a strictly partisan vote.
Several committees in the House of Representatives have issued subpoenas for materials and testimonies from people and institutions within the Trump administration as well as external entities.
The president's personal lawyers have issued letters saying all such requests will be ignored or opposed  and have filed several lawsuits to prevent the release of any information to Congress.
The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed the unredacted Mueller report and Attorney General Barr has rebuffed this,  leading to a contempt citation from the committee.
A lawsuit is also contemplated. On July 26, , the Judiciary Committee asked federal judge Beryl Howell , who oversaw the Mueller grand juries, to unseal the secret testimony because the committee is "investigating whether to recommend articles of impeachment" to the full House.
On November 18, , The House counsel filed a brief with Judge Howell to release the materials immediately, as redacted grand jury testimony appeared to show the President perjured himself before the Mueller probe and it was part of the impeachment inquiry.
On December 16, another brief by the HJC, said that they still needed the materials, as some redacted materials appear to be related to the Ukraine matter  Previously, an appellate court had scheduled oral arguments in the case for January 3, The House Oversight Committee issued a subpoena to the Mazars accounting firm for Trump's financial information from before his election to the presidency.
The President and his lawyers have tried to delay or prevent this information from getting to the committee by seeking a court injunction against both the committee's leadership and Mazars.
On April 23, U. Trump's attorneys filed an appeal brief with the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit on June 10, , contending that Congress may not investigate a president for criminal activities except in impeachment proceedings.
The brief asserted Congress's investigation was an "exercise of law-enforcement authority that the Constitution reserves to the executive branch".
On August 8, the Justice Department filed a brief supporting the president's position. On November 18, The US Supreme Court blocked the transfer of the subpoenaed materials temporarily and required the HJC to submit a response to the president's appeal by Friday, November 22, so they could have the full arguments before deciding to take the case on an emergency basis.
The House Financial Services and Intelligence committees issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One Bank asking for financial records relating to Trump, his adult children, and his businesses.
Trump's personal attorneys tried to delay or prevent the information from being given to the committees by getting a court injunction.
Trump's lawyers had asked Ramos to quash the subpoenas, but Ramos said such a request was "unlikely to succeed on the merits".
Oral arguments began on August On August 8, , it was reported by The Wall Street Journal that Deutsche Bank, as well as others, had complied with the subpoenas despite the suit, handing over thousands of documents.
Many of the lawsuits filed against Trump asked for declaratory relief. A court's declaratory judgment compels no action as it simply resolves a legal question.
A declaration that the president has accepted emoluments would make the work of House Managers easier in an impeachment. Trump asked for declaratory relief as to emoluments.
Trump and EOP , a declaratory finding that the administration willfully failed to retain records would support a charge of obstruction of justice.
Trump case was dismissed in December for lack of standing , but in September this ruling was vacated and remanded upon appeal. Trump was dismissed in February Trump said, "I don't know how you can impeach someone who's done a great job.
I tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash, I think everybody would be very poor.
Because without this [points at his head, referring to his brain and his thinking], you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse.
In a January tweet, Trump expressed bewilderment at the possibility, saying among other things, "How do you impeach a president who In late April , Trump vowed to take a possible impeachment to the Supreme Court,  even though the Supreme Court has twice ruled that the judiciary has no power over the process.
On May 22, Trump walked out of a planned White House meeting about infrastructure with Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer , because he said Pelosi had earlier that morning met with the House Democratic Caucus "to talk about the I-word" and because Pelosi had accused him of carrying out a cover-up.
This is news," breaking away from other Democrats wanting impeachment. In May , Pelosi suggested that Trump was goading House Democrats to impeach him "to solidify his base".
The White House is just crying out for impeachment" to divide Democrats and distract from Trump's policies.
By May , an increasing number of Democrats and one Republican member of Congress were concluding that impeachment, or at least an impeachment inquiry, could be the only alternative should Trump continue to "stonewall" their demands for information and testimony.
On September 22, , Pelosi wrote a letter addressing Congress about an anonymous whistleblower complaint about Trump's call to Ukraine's leader, stating "[i]f the administration persists in blocking this whistle-blower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation Some analysts speculated that Trump actually wanted to be impeached, in order to remain the focus of national attention, rally his supporters, and obtain a perceived political advantage.
Axios interviewed legal and political experts who concluded that if Trump won a second term after being impeached and acquitted, it might be politically impossible to impeach Trump again because of the political blowback.
Some commentators have argued that Trump has abused the Presidential pardon power,  specifically offering to pardon federal officials who commit crimes such as violating the rights of immigrants  and any necessary to build the Trump border wall before the next presidential election.
City councils that have made formal resolutions calling for the impeachment of President Trump include those in the San Francisco Bay Area cities of Alameda , Berkeley , Oakland and Richmond    as well as the city of Los Angeles.
Public opinion is a key factor in impeachment proceedings, as politicians including those in the House of Representatives look to opinion polls to assess the tenor of those they represent.
After Nancy Pelosi formally announced an impeachment inquiry into Trump on September 24, , several opinion polls reflected an increase in support for an impeachment inquiry.
An analysis of polls showed that through mid-December, Americans remained sharply divided on whether Trump should be removed from office.
