Most U.S. residents believe that Congress needs to find out whether the president actually broke the law.
A majority of Americans believe that Congress should find out whether President Donald Trump actually broke the law when he asked the Ukrainian leader Vladimir Greensky to reopen the investigation into the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. This is evidenced by the survey data of The Wall Street Journal in conjunction with NBC.
Only 24% of respondents noted sufficient proof of guilt, they believe in the need to launch impeachment proceedings.
Thirty-one percent of those surveyed believe that Congress should better understand what happened, while 31 percent believe that the data collected for impeachment proceedings is not enough and the president should stay until the next election.
Recall, in late September, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the beginning of impeachment proceedings against Trump. The reason was a complaint by a U.S. intelligence official against the president, in which he accused him of trying to involve a foreign state in meddling in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
The White House released a transcript of Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Selensky in July. During the conversation, Trump complained to Zelinsky about the unjustified dismissal in 2016 of Attorney General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating corruption at Burisma. Biden’s son was on her board.
