Democratic Party members of congress have revealed the draft of a new impeachment resolution against President Trump.

Sadly, the person who is running executive branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous President of the United States, and only a number of days until we can be protected from him. He has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him. The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the impeachment motion next week. But reports in the US media suggests it's not expected to reach the Senate until after Mr. Trump has left office.
