President Donald Trump abused the facility of his workplace by pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to research former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats, the House Intelligence Committee concluded in a report.

The report, which is predicted to type the idea of articles of impeachment, describes a president prepared to use his leverage over Ukraine — a country at struggle with Russia — to extract a political profit, partially by conditioning army help and a coveted White Home assembly for Zelensky on his willingness to launch the politically motivated investigations.

“[T]he President placed his personal personal and political pursuits above the national interests of america, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national safety,” the report concludes.

The Intelligence Committee is predicted to approve the report alongside celebration strains at a meeting Tuesday night, forward of the primary impeachment hearing within the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
