Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on two articles of impeachment in December — Abuse of Power by a 230-197 vote and Obstruction of Congress by a 229-198 vote. While Trump was at a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, during the impeachment voting, he signed the papers to commemorate his historic feat (being only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.)
Goldin Auctions promises the full version of documents that was presented to the house before the vote. According to its listing, Trump signed the title page in black pen while at the rally. And in case you’re wondering, it does come with a notarized letter of provenance, proving it’s the real deal.
The letter from Jonathan Moore, a member of the U.S. Department of State, states that he “attended President Trump’s rally in Battle Creek, Michigan on December 17th, 2019 and asked him to sign the Articles of Impeachment that I handed him, and he happily complied. The President had been impeached by Congress just hours earlier.”
If you’re in the market for other Trump-signed documents, the website is also selling a signed copy of Trump’s Presidential Oath of Office. It’s current highest bid is $2,100.
