The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday released its report on the Trump-Ukraine impeachment inquiry, finding President Donald Trump used “the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”
The report reads, in part:
“The President engaged in this course of conduct for the benefit of his own presidential reelection, to harm the election prospects of a political rival, and to influence our nation’s upcoming presidential election to his advantage. In doing so, the President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security.”
