It’s going to be another busy and consequential week in Washington, DC, as Democrats move forward with impeaching President Donald Trump over, among other potential charges, his withholding of US military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

On Monday, the House Judiciary Committee will receive additional evidence from the House Intelligence Committee. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, (D-N.Y.) whose committee will lead the drafting of articles of impeachment to eventually be voted on by the full House of Representatives, said Sunday morning on CNN that even though the committee was interested in new information that the facts that have emerged are straightforward.

“We have to consider the evidence which shows overwhelmingly that the president put his own personal interests above the interests of his country—and the evidence is virtually uncontested,” Nadler told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday morning.

On Saturday, Nadler’s committee released a 55-page report analyzing various aspects of the current impeachment process and their historic roots in constitutional law. The report, which you can read below, covers the purpose of impeachment, its relationship to criminality, and how attempted misconduct is just as relevant as completed misconduct.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
