(CBS NEWS) – House Democrats released a report with their findings from the impeachment investigation into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, accusing the president of placing “his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States” and endangering national security by soliciting assistance from a foreign government to boost his reelection prospects.
The report is based on more than 130 hours of public and private testimony by 17 witnesses before three committees over the past two months.
Democrats’ case against the president centers on a delay in military aid to Ukraine and Mr. Trump’s request that the Ukrainian president investigate a political rival and unfounded allegations of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election, as well as efforts to obstruct the impeachment investigation.
The document runs 300 pages and was written by Democratic staffers on the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees. Members of the Intelligence Committee will meet Tuesday at 6 p.m. to vote on adopting the report before sending it to the Judiciary Committee, along with a separate report prepared by Republican members.
