The following article, Democrats Announce Two Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump, was first published on Flag And Cross.

House Democrats have finally announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump, despite the fact they’ve had rather dismal poll trends in key battleground states.

Nadler’s weak justification for the charges found in the two impeachment articles are that they constitute “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Trump took to Twitter to share his thoughts and feelings on the articles of impeachment:
