Donald Trump impeached for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress!

President Donald J. Trump finally impeached for;
1. Abuse of power
2. Obstruction of Congress

Abuse of power
The interpretation of Abuse of power from the impeachment context means using the Powers of the presidency for personal benefit.

This was brought forth by members of Democrats in the house of Reps on the President's "withholding security aid to Ukraine to pressure it announce investigations that will benefit him".

Obstruction of Congress
The refusal of the White house to provide documents to congressional investigators, instructing top advisers and government officials to defy subpoenas and refusal to testify.

Although, impeachable offense according to the US constitution is;

"Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors" The Constitution limits grounds of impeachment to "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors". ... 

The purpose of impeachment is not to inflict personal punishment for criminal activity.

Note: President Donald Trump is the third American President to be impeached by the House of Reps after Andrew Johnson on 24th Feb, 1868 and Bill Clinton on the 19th Dec, 1998 but not removed by Senate.

We now anticipate on the decisions of the Senate!
