According to committee head Jerry Nadler, Trump is accused of abuse of power, as well as obstructing Congressional investigation.
So, the Democrats accuse Trump of retaining aid to Ukraine for domestic political reasons. In turn, Trump insists that he did not “do anything wrong,” and also refuses to cooperate with the investigation, calling it “madness.”
If the Judicial Committee approves the allegations against Trump, they will be referred to the House of Representatives for voting. If Democrats support the accusations, then the impeachment trial will begin in the Senate. The hearing may begin in January 2020.
Nadler emphasized that the integrity of the upcoming 2020 presidential election is at stake. He also added that Trump is "considered himself above the law."
