More than 750 respected historians have signed an open letter urging the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump over the Ukraine scandal.

“It is our considered judgment that if President Trump’s misconduct does not rise to the level of impeachment, then virtually nothing does,” the scholars wrote in the missive that the nonprofit advocacy group Protect Democracy posted on Medium on Monday.

House Democrats last week unveiled two articles of impeachment against Trump.
The president is accused of abuse of power, relating to his alleged pressuring the Ukrainian leader to announce an investigation into potential Democratic 2020 rival Joe Biden, and obstruction of Congress, linked to the White House’s stonewalling of the probe.

The House is expected to vote on the articles on Wednesday.

They also accused Trump of demonstrating “brazen contempt for representative government” by refusing to cooperate with the congressional investigation.
