Why Trump will survive impeachment
The road to presidential impeachment in the United States has been full of roadblocks and landmines, but the U.S. House of Representatives was undeterred this week.
Adam Schiff, the Democratic chair of the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted the evidence was "overwhelming and uncontested." Trump had abused the powers of his office "for his own personal, political gain."
Within an hour, the White House fired back. The House inquiry was a sham it said, which failed utterly to produce any evidence of presidential wrongdoing.
To Trump and his supporters, that phone call with Ukrainian president Zelensky was, in the U.S. president's words, "perfect." To Democrats, a perfectly impeachable offence.
