The Trump impeachment inquiry concerning controversies in Ukraine is underway in Washington D.C. The inquiry has not yet been voted upon by the US House of Representatives but so far consists of a written inquiry sent to the White House, issued by Nancy Pelosi the Speaker of the House.
The White House replied to her inquiry by letter, stating the inquiry is not an ‘impeachment inquiry’ as recognized by the US constitution.
Meanwhile, a new poll conducted by Fox News suggests unexpectedly broad support for impeachment. Dana Blanton of Fox News said; ” A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment”
This new poll represents a nine-point increase by those voters who wish to see President Trump impeached across swing-voting states in the USA. The reason for the increase concerns the alleged interference by the White House into Ukranian foreign affairs.
Donald Trump is alleged to have improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens dealings in that country and also withheld aid in order to prompt their president into action..
The Ukraine president has denied he was blackmailed by President Trump into helping him investigate the Biden’s or the Clinton’s.
It has also emerged that three Democratic senators pressured the Ukrainian government last year to help special counsel Robert Mueller investigate Mr. Trump, according to the Washington Times.
