Description

Conviction on Article II, which would find President Trump guilty of the charge of obstruction of Congress by defying, and instructing others not to comply with, subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives in relation to the House impeachment inquiry into Trump's solicitation of the government of Ukraine. Specifically, it would state that Trump directed executive branch agencies, offices, and officers not to cooperate with House committees and to withhold the production of documents sought by the committees pursuant to the impeachment inquiry. It would state that such actions "directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas" issued pursuant to the "sole power of impeachment" of the House. It would state that such actions served to "cover up the president's own repeated misconduct" and "nullify a vital constitutional safeguard vested solely in the House of Representatives."
