House Democrats have accused United States President Donald Trump of abusing power to win re-election in 2020 regarding his conduct with Ukraine.

A report released by the intelligence committee which has spearheaded the impeachment probe revealed that Trump had used US military aid and the prospect of a White House visit to compel his Ukrainian counterpart to do his political bidding.

“The president placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the US presidential election process, and endangered US national security.”

Democrats also accused Trump of efforts to obstruct the inquiry by refusals to provide documents and testimony from his top advisers as well as the intimidation of witnesses.

“Donald Trump is the first President in the history of the United States to seek to completely obstruct an impeachment inquiry undertaken by the House of Representatives,” the report said.

“The evidence of the president’s misconduct is overwhelming, and so too is the evidence of his obstruction of Congress. Indeed, it would be hard to imagine a stronger or more complete case of obstruction than that demonstrated by the President since the inquiry began,” it added.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and accused Democrats of using the impeachment process to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election.

House Intelligence Committee said Republicans will have two days to submit “Minority Views” before the Chairman, Adam Schiff will transmit the report and its appendices to the House Judiciary Committee which will its proceedings on Wednesday.

Donald Trump, who is currently attending the NATO summit in the United Kingdom called Democrats very unpatriotic for pursuing his impeachment in his absence.
