美国众议院议长指示多位国会领导人以让特朗普总统下台为目标。
The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives has directed congressional leaders to take steps aimed at removing the president from office.

议长南希·佩洛西要求请议员们主持众议院各委员会,为针对特朗普总统的弹劾条款做准备。
Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked lawmakers chairing House committees to prepare articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

民主党控制着众议院及其所有委员会。
The Democratic Party controls the House of Representatives and all of its committees.

弹劾流程是国会的参议院起诉美国总统。
Impeachment is the process by which the lower house of Congress brings charges against a U.S. president.

参议院通过审讯来决定是否保留总统,审讯过程由最高法院的首席法官监督完成。
The Senate decides if the president remains in office in a trial overseen by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

佩洛西说,这个案件的事实是没有争议的。
In a recorded statement, Pelosi said that the facts of the case were not disputed.

佩洛西表示,“特朗普总统滥用职权以谋取个人政治利益,牺牲的是美国的国家安全……”
She said, "The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security..."

佩洛西做此宣布时,一些民主党议员正在推动于圣诞节假期之前在众议院举行弹劾投票。
Pelosi made the announcement as Democratic lawmakers push to have an impeachment vote in the House before the Christmas holiday.

只有2位总统受到过弹劾:安德鲁·约翰逊1868年被弹劾;比尔·克林顿1998年被弹劾。
Only two presidents have been impeached: Andrew Johnson in 1868, and Bill Clinton in 1998.

但这2位总统都没有被迫下台。
But neither man was forced from office.

1974年,理查德·尼克松离任,那时候的情况是他如果不离任就会被弹劾。
In 1974, Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency when it appeared he would be impeached.

白宫的一些工作人员已公开放出特朗普与乌克兰总统之间的2次通话记录。
White House officials have publicly released records of two telephone calls between Trump and Ukraine’s president.

不过,议员们对于通话内容的含义存在争议。
However, lawmakers dispute the meaning of what was said.

乌克兰总统泽兰斯基曾表示自己并未受到特朗普的施压,而特朗普方面则表示自己并无过错。
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has said he did not feel pressured by Trump, who says he did nothing wrong.
