With White House’s vocal resistance of the impeachment investigation has turn the process into a tumult, notably with the President’s supporters carving a way to win the American presidency.

On the other hand, some people believe that the act shown by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be commended with constitutional courage.

For the past 243 years, the United States government only experienced impeachment three times.

The House of Representative ousted both Andrew Johnson, and Bill Clinton, while Richard Nixon, on the verge of impeachment and verdict by the senate, resigned in 1974.

Chris Edelson, an assistant professor of government at American University, described today’s dilemma as “historic showdown.”

The idea of the current impeachment investigation is pressuring another country’s leader to interfere in US elections, he added, “this is certainly the first,” decrying the presidents bold effort with Ukraine.

Lastly, House committees are acquiring information as part of the investigation, amidst they have been turned down multiple times, Pelosi says there is a “growing body of evidence” that shows Trump abused his office.

Pelosi has not given any timeline on filing articles for impeachment, but lawmakers analyze that it could be before of the year.
