Impeachment is a process by which lawmakers can censure and ultimately remove a US President from office. According to the US Constitution, a President can be impeached "treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanours". Donald Trump is accused of violating his oath of office allegedly by asking Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son while the White House was withholding military aid to the vulnerable ally that desperately needs support in the midst of a shooting war with Russia.
A whistleblower's complaint about Trump's July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy sparked the impeachment investigation.
