president of the UNITED states Donald Trump is sitting in these weeks on the dock in the third impeachment in american political history. We give here an overview of what it really means.
An impeachment (in English: impeachment) gives the rulers the ability to keep the other rulers (as, for example, judges, the president or members of Congress) accountable, if they are suspected of having done something illegal in their office.
the Trial held in the Senate, which is the upper chamber of Congress, and members of the Senate, judge in the matter. Therefore, it is a political trial and not a criminal proceeding.
The two charges against the president, which is the focal point of the rigsretssagen.
For the first, he is accused of having withheld tens of millions of dollars in militærhjælp to Ukraine to get the Ukraine government to help him get re-elected. It was, according to witnesses, among other things be about to get the Ukrainian government to launch a search of the democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
secondly, he is accused of preventing Congress from carrying out their work, as he last year refused to let the employees in The White House witness in the first hearings in the case.
the President denies all the charges.
