Judiciary Committee staff drafted nine impeachment charges even before Ukraine broke, including all the obstruction that Mueller said he wasn't allowed to indict the president for but CONGRESS IF YOU'RE LISTENING. Nancy Pelosi vetoed for "overreach." I believe Nancy Pelosi was wrong!

They also would have charged Mr. Trump with obstructing Mr. Mueller's investigation, obstructing congressional investigations, engaging in the hush money scheme carried out by Mr. Cohen, dangling pardons to keep potential witnesses against him quiet, usurping the power of Congress both by spending money on his border wall and by imposing tariffs without authorization, targeting his adversaries with the power of his office and violating the emoluments clause.

The committee staff members, assuming that Mr. Trump would take other objectionable action, then added a placeholder 10th article titled, "The Next High Crime." Just weeks later, the president's Ukraine pressure campaign came to light and filled that slot.
