Goldin Auctions , an auction house in New Jersey, claims to have a set of impeachment documents signed by President Donald Trump. The auction, which expires Saturday night, is up to $26,000.

Goldin Auctions claims that the documents were signed by Trump the night he was impeached by the House, Dec. 18, 2019, while he was in Michigan for a rally for supporters.

"Trump signed his name in bold black marker across the page," said Goldin Auctions. "A unique piece of history having the sitting US President multi-signing the document that led to his historic impeachment. This item comes with a letter of provenance from Jonathan Moore, who states in his letter that he 'attended President Trump’s rally in Battle Creek, Michigan on December 17th, 2019 (the impeachment vote was on Dec. 18) and asked him to sign the Articles of Impeachment that I handed him, and he happily complied.'"

The auction house says the document comes with a letter of authenticity.

Auction house founder Ken Goldin said in an interview that the set of documents are historic.

“This is the most historical item that he ever will sign. He signed his own impeachment document on the day he was impeached,” Goldin told KYW .
