Feldman: Trump committed impeachable crimes

United States President Donald Trump "has committed high crimes and misdemeanors," Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, said as he testified on Wednesday at the Trump's impeachment hearing in Congress.

Speaking before the House Judiciary Committee, Feldman argued that Trump's attempts to hold back a White House meeting and military assistance from Ukraine as leverage for political favors constitute impeachable conduct together with the act of requesting foreign assistance on a phone call with Ukraine’s leader.

Feldman said: "Specifically, President Trump abused his office by corruptly soliciting President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce investigations of his political rivals in order to gain personal advantage, including in the 2020 presidential election."
