Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner details congressional Democrats’ potential path toward impeachment of President Trump.

Democrats are constructing a case against President Trump that will allow them to draft at least two articles of impeachment based on obstruction of justice and abuse of power.

“At some point in time obviously, we will conclude the information gathering phase and make a determination whether they rise to a place where no one is above the law,” Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland, said Tuesday, describing the impeachment process. “Abuse of power, as Hamilton pointed out, was a high crime and misdemeanor.”

Democrats believe Trump misused his office to try to convince Ukraine government officials to investigate his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

They also believe Trump has worked to obstruct their investigation by denying access to documents and witnesses subpoenaed by House Democrats in an impeachment investigation they began in late September.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California has repeatedly warned the Trump administration that failure to cooperate would help Democrats built a case to impeach him for obstruction. Several witnesses have been no-show and the White House is refusing to turn over emails and other documents Democrats are seeking that relate to Ukraine. …

… The House is slated to vote Thursday on a resolution outlining the process for holding public hearings and for transmitting impeachment articles to the House Judiciary Committee, which will be tasked with advancing them to the House floor.
