【今日美国】美国议员指控特朗普滥用职权和阻碍 US Lawmakers Charge Trump with Abuse of Office, Obstruction

The impeachment process against the president of the United States took another step forward Tuesday in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Leading members of the House announced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. The charges include abuse of office for personal political gain and blocking -- or obstructing -- the congressional impeachment investigation.

针对美国总统的弹each程序星期二在美国众议院又向前迈进了一步。

众议院主要成员宣布对唐纳德·特朗普总统进行弹imp的两篇文章。这些指控包括滥用职权以谋取个人政治利益以及阻止或阻碍国会弹imp调查。


The Democratic Party controls the House of Representatives. Trump is a member of the Republican Party,

It was only the fourth time in the 243-year history of the United States that impeachment charges have been brought against a president. None of those earlier actions resulted in a president's removal from office. And Republican lawmakers seem unlikely to support Trump's ouster.


民主党控制众议院。特朗普是共和党的一员,

在美国243年的历史中,这只是第四次对总统提出弹imp指控。这些较早的行动都没有导致总统免职。而且共和党议员似乎不太可能支持特朗普的罢免。


House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler will head the panel that will first consider the impeachment articles. He said Tuesday that Trump threatened national security and the 2020 election process by withholding military aid to Ukraine. Trump "sees himself as above the law," Nadler added. "He consistently puts himself above the country."


众议院司法委员会主席杰罗德·纳德勒(Jerrold Nadler)将主持该小组,该小组将首先审议弹imp条款。他周二表示,特朗普通过扣留对乌克兰的军事援助威胁了国家安全和2020年的选举进程。纳德勒补充说,特朗普“认为自己高于法律。” “他始终把自己置于全国之上。”

House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff led the weeks-long impeachment inquiry. He called the accusations against the U.S. leader "overwhelming and uncontested."

But Trump has said he did nothing wrong, and none of his Republican supporters in Congress has called for his impeachment and removal from office.


众议院情报委员会主席亚当·希夫(Adam Schiff)领导了为期数周的弹each调查。他称对美国领导人的指责“压倒性而没有争议”。

但是特朗普表示他没有做错任何事情,他的国会共和党支持者中没有一个呼吁弹imp和免职。


Before the articles were announced, Trump criticized the case against him.

"To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country's history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!" Trump wrote. His message appeared on Twitter.


在文章宣布之前,特朗普批评了针对他的案子。

“一位通过各种成果证明过的总统,包括可能创造出我国历史上最强劲的经济体,成为有史以来最成功的总统之一,而最重要的是,没有做错任何事情,这就是纯粹的政治疯狂!”特朗普写道。他的消息出现在Twitter上。


Trump added that the president and foreign minister of Ukraine "said, many times, that there WAS NO PRESSURE. Nadler and the Dems know this, but refuse to acknowledge!" he wrote.

特朗普补充说,乌克兰总统兼外交大臣“多次说没有压力。纳德勒和德姆斯知道这一点,但拒绝承认!”他写了。

Ukraine investigation

Perhaps the most important part of the case against Trump concerns his effort and that of his aides to get Ukraine to investigate former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. At the same time, the president was withholding $391 million in military aid to Ukraine. The country wanted to help fight pro-Russian separatists in the country's east.


Nadler said his panel will consider the accusations in the next few days, possibly voting on the articles of impeachment by the end of the week.


反对特朗普的案子中最重要的部分可能涉及他的努力以及他的助手们促使乌克兰调查前美国副总统拜登的努力。 同时,总统扣留了对乌克兰的3.91亿美元军事援助。 该国想帮助该国东部与亲俄罗斯的分离主义分子作战。

纳德勒说,他的小组将在接下来的几天里考虑这些指控,可能在本周末之前就弹each条款进行投票。


That would clear the way for a simple majority vote in the House next week, when Trump is likely to become the third U.S. president to be impeached.

He would then stand trial in the Republican-majority Senate in January.


这将为下周在众议院进行简单多数投票扫清道路,届时特朗普很可能成为受弹imp的第三位美国总统。

然后,他将在一月在共和党多数党参议院接受审判。
