Trump abused the power of the presidency. He used the official powers of his office to pressure a foreign country to interfere in our election on his behalf, risking our national security in the process. That is a violation of his constitutional oath and an impeachable offense.

The evidence is overwhelming:

  • TRUMP PRESSURED UKRAINE: Trump pressured Ukraine to help his reelection campaign by announcing investigations that would help him politically, including into a potential 2020 opponent.

    • On the July 25 call with Zelensky, Trump asked Ukraine to “do us a favor” and investigate a conspiracy theory about the 2016 election and his political opponent.

    • Ambassador Sondland, who “followed the president’s orders,” told Ukraine the military aid they had been promised would not be released, and they would not get the White House meeting they sought, until they announced the investigations Trump wanted.

    • Former Ambassador Bill Taylor told investigators that Trump made the release of military aid contingent upon Ukraine announcing those investigations, and called that demand “counterproductive” and “crazy.”

  • TRUMP ENDANGERED OUR NATIONAL SECURITY: Trump put his personal political interests over the U.S. national interest by soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 election and withholding military aid to Ukraine.

    • Lieutenant Colonel Vindman testified that “in helping Ukraine, we are helping ourselves” by pushing back on Russian aggression.

    • Laura Cooper testified that providing security assistance to Ukraine was “absolutely” in the U.S. national interest.

    • Former Ambassador Bill Taylor testified that withholding aid to Ukraine had life-and-death consequences.
