United States House speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she has instructed the House Judiciary panel to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

“The president’s actions have seriously violated the constitution,” Pelosi told reporters.

Pelosi delivered the historic announcement as Democrats push toward a vote, possibly by Christmas. She said she was authorising the drafting of articles of impeachment “sadly but with confidence and humility”.

“Our democracy is what is at stake,” Pelosi said. “The president leaves us no choice but to act.”

Trump is alleged to have abused the power of his office by putting personal political gain over national security interests, engaging in bribery by withholding USD 400 million in military aid Congress had approved for Ukraine; and then obstructing Congress by stonewalling the investigation.

Meanwhile , The White House said the Democrats should be “ashamed” after Pelosi pulled the trigger on impeaching Trump.

“Democrats should be ashamed,” Trump’s chief spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a tweet.
