World’s Eyes on 7 Impeachment Managers
Donald John Trump goes down in American history books as the first President of the United States of America to be impeached in his first term of his Presidency. He will be forever known as the third ‘Impeached President’ of the United States of America and the first ‘Impeached President’ in his first term at the Oval Office. The impeachment trial is all slated to commence from the 21st of January 2020.
The world will be keenly watching the most-awaited trial of Trump, who has not only tarnished the Oval Office by withholding the Congress-approved $391 million aid to Ukraine, but also has blatantly broken the American Constitution by obstructing the powers of the Congress, the co-equal branch. Trump and his Republican allies have also proved to the whole world that they would openly sell their motherland for money and to remain in power.
It is really fascinating to understand that a Russian-Canadian-American Marie Yovanovitch and a Ukrainian-born-American Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman are more American Patriots than the American President and his Republicans’ henchmen. It is also interesting and ironical to note that another Ukrainian-born-American Lev Parnas, Rudy Giuliani’s associate, the rogue player from Trump-Giuliani’s Team has finally come out in the open to disclose interesting facts about Trump’s Ukraine conspiracy.
Lev Parnas switched his allegiance after Trump acknowledged to Press that he doesn’t know Parnas, who was arrested with his friend Igor Fruman at the Dulles International Airport on the 9th of October 2019. Parnas and Fruman have been indicted by the SDNY. Parnas has been cooperating with the House Impeachment Committee and provided a treasure trove about Trump-Giuliani’s Ukraine Conspiracy. He is also very keen to provide his testimony at the Impeachment hearing.
On the 15th of January 2020, the House of Representatives’ Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced the 7 Impeachment Managers, who would present the case against the impeached President Donald Trump during the Senate trial. All the eyes of the world would be on these 7 outstanding individuals. The humongous responsibility on their shoulders is second to none.
