The charges levied against Trump stem from weeks of testimony related to his dealings with Ukraine and alleged impropriety regarding election interference. Shortly before the official impeachment news came down, Trump sent a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, accusing the Democratic Party of a partisan “crusade” and “spiteful” abuse of power. Throughout the impeachment hearings, political-minded celebrities have been following along and sharing their thoughts via social media. Some of the most outspoken critics of Trump, such as Midler and Milano, were among the first to respond to the breaking news last night.
