The House Judiciary Committee released its full 658-page report on the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the early hours of Monday, ahead of consideration by the full House later this week.
The report explains the decision to charge Trump with two articles of impeachment—abuse of power and obstruction of justice. In the report, the committee accuses Trump of “multiple federal crimes,” including criminal bribery and wire fraud, and writes that the president has “realized the Framers’ worst nightmare” with his alleged misconduct.
The committee concludes “that President Trump has placed his personal, political interests above our national security, our free and fair elections, and our systems of checks and balances. He has engaged in a pattern of misconduct that will continue if left unchecked. Accordingly, President Trump should be impeached and removed from office.”
