Five members of Congress introduced H.Res.621 - Impeaching Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors, which includes:

I - OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

II - VIOLATION OF THE FOREIGN EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE—ARTICLE I, SECTION 9 OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

III - VIOLATION OF THE DOMESTIC EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE—ARTICLE II, SECTION 1 OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

IV - ABUSE OF POWER—UNDERMINING THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY AND THE RULE OF LAW

V - UNDERMINING FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

The resolution states, in part:

“Resolved, That Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following Articles of Impeachment be exhibited to the Senate:

“Articles of Impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and all of the people of the United States of America, against Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Perhaps the most serious charges are listed under ARTICLE I: OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, which states:

“In his conduct while President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, as well as his constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, and has to that end engaged personally, and through his subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or scheme designed to delay, impede an investigation, and to conceal information sought by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the course of its investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 United States Presidential election, including any possible collusion between Russia and Donald J. Trump’s campaign.”

The resolution describes the “means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme” in detail, and charges, “In all of this, Donald J. Trump has obstructed the administration of justice. In so doing he has undermined the integrity of his office, brought disrepute on the Presidency, and betrayed his trust as President in a manner subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore Donald J. Trump, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.”

The resolution also details other violations of the Constitution committed by Trump.
