TEHRAN, Dec 5_US President Donald Trump is using government service and its agencies to “improve his personal financial interests,” according to Myles Hoenig, an American political analyst and activist.

Trump using office to improve his personal financial interests: AnalystTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday while commenting on the ongoing impeachment inquiry by House Democrats against Trump.

Democratic lawmakers at the House Intelligence Committee have accused Trump of abusing his power in office in his conduct toward Ukraine.

In a much-awaited report released on Tuesday, Democrats said Trump solicited foreign interference to boost his re-election chances, undermined national security and ordered an "unprecedented" campaign to obstruct Congress.

Trump "placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests" of the US and not only "sought to undermine the integrity" presidential election process, but also endangered US national security.

In the 300-page report, the House Democrats also leveled allegations of sweeping abuse of power by Trump and said he used US military aid and the prospect of a White House visit to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch investigations into one of his political rivals in the 2020 election.

Hoenig said, “There never was any doubt when Trump became president that he would reach all levels possible for extremes. The most narcissistic, the crudest and most boorish, the least intelligent, the least informed on policy issues, the most clueless on how government works, etc. The last one leads to one that could be debated - the most corrupt. That is pretty much the conclusion of the Intelligence Committee investigation regarding Trump as president. It’s hard to find another president that has used the powers of his office for his own personal domain as much as he has.”
