Democratic lawyer Barry Berke makes argument for Trump’s impeachment

by Editorial Team

The lawyer representing the Democrats at the House Judiciary Committee meeting called President Trump’s conduct in his dealings with Ukraine “brazen” and supported by documents and testimony.

“And this scheme by President Trump was so brazen, so clear, supported by documents, actions, sworn testimony, uncontradicted, contemporaneous records, that it’s hard to imagine that anybody could dispute those acts, let alone argue that that conduct does not constitute an impeachable offense or offenses,” Barry Berke told the panel on Monday.

“This is a big deal,” he said.

Berke went on to say that Trump put his political ambitions above the security of the nation by pressing Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who worked for a Ukrainian energy company.

“It is clear that the president risked corrupting our elections by inviting foreign interference to knock out an adversary to help his prospects in re-election,” Berke said.
