Trump tied aid to Ukraine with Biden probe - impeachment report

In a report detailing their weeks-long gathering of evidence and hearings within the impeachment probe into President Trump, the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee claimed that the president has abused the power of office, as suggested by the whistleblower's complaint, which prompted the inquiry in the first place.

"The evidence is clear that President Trump used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine into announcing investigations into his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden," the report released on Tuesday read. House investigators also "debunked" the conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russia, meddled in the 2016 presidential election, noting that "these investigations were designed to benefit his 2020 presidential reelection campaign."

The report will now be submitted to the Judiciary Committee, a day ahead of its first public hearing, marking the next stage in the impeachment probe.
