A whistleblower – name not disclosed yet – sent a complaint said that Donald Trump asked for favours from Zelensky to help him in the upcoming US presidential election, which is still 14 months away. He asked Zelensky to launch a corruption investigation against Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Joe Biden is a Democratic Party presidential candidate for the 2020 election and is considered as a potential rival to Donald Trump when he seeks re-election next year. Hunter Biden has business interests in Ukraine. If Bidens are alleged with corruption charges even outside the US, it would beneficial for Donald Trump.
Trump initially denied it, but over the weekend admitted that he talked to Zelensky on July 25, about Joe Biden. He said “We had a great conversation. The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, was largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place, was largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son (adding to the corruption),”
“It’s no big Deal Everybody does it” Trump said
By using whistleblower’s complaint, Democrats have launched a impeachment enquiry against Trump. According to US Constitution, the president shall be removed on impeachment for treason, bribery, or other high crimes. If the case against Donald Trump reaches the trial stage, it will be presided over by the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the US. The Senators will function as jury members in that trial. Donald Trump will be entitled to have a lawyer in the Senate to defend him.
At the end of the trial, the Senate would vote. If two-thirds of the Senate votes for conviction of Donald Trump, he would be removed as the US president. The vice-president, in such case, will assume the role of the president for the remainder of the term.
