Trump has withdrawn the United States from a treaty that radically reduced the likelihood of nuclear war. He has done so in violation of the terms of the treaty, and therefore in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Trump has illegally removed the United States from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. This treaty was signed by President Reagan on December 8, 1987, and ratified by consent of the U.S. Senate on May 27, 1988, thereby becoming the supreme law of the land under Article VI, paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
The INF Treaty allows withdrawal only if "extraordinary events related to the subject matter of this Treaty have jeopardized its supreme interests."
The INF Treaty provides for intrusive on-site inspections, backed up by mutual verification by satellite and other monitoring mechanisms, and a Special Verification Commission to resolve any disputes about whether violations have occurred. Whether or not Russian development and deployment of its new 9M729 missile constitute a "material breach" of the treaty is a matter to be dealt with by the provisions of the treaty itself and cannot satisfy the legal requirement for withdrawal.
By illegally withdrawing from the INF Treaty, Trump has violated the law and endangered the world. He is guilty of yet another impeachable offense warranting removal from office.
