First it was quid-pro-quo…before it was quid-pro-Joe…then there was bribery…before there was no bribery…which morphed to extortion…which crashed and burned…and then Dems went to obstruction of justice…which backdoored into obstruction of Congress…and abuse of power…and finally Pelosi pulls up the big tent in D.C.’s greatest circus this side of Andrew Johnson and rolls out two articles of impeachment…
Democrats Unveil 2 Articles of Impeachment
House Democrats rolled out two articles of impeachment Tuesday, charging President Donald Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The Judiciary Committee scheduled the vote on the articles for Thursday, setting up a vote on the House floor next week to make Trump the third president in history to be impeached.
Pelosi, no doubt, has the votes.
Earlier Monday evening, senior Democrats, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), holed up in Pelosi’s office to debate the articles of impeachment. Sources say some members of the “burn the house down” radicals in Pelosi’s caucus were still advocating for an obstruction of justice charge against Trump Monday, but they didn’t have the votes.
After months of crying quid pro quo then focus grouping their allegations to bribery, Democrats moved the goalposts again.
In their entire press conference this morning, there were ZERO mentions of quid pro quo or bribery.
Regarding the Democrats’ bogus “abuse of power” charge against President Trump, its nonsense. Not only was there no quid pro quo, there is no evidence of pressure, and Ukrainian President Zelensky said there was no quid pro quo, “no blackmail,” and that no one “pushed” him.
As liberal law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out, the Democrats’ impeachment push is the real “abuse of power.”
Regarding obstruction of Congress, that’s laughable.
President Trump has been transparent since the beginning by releasing the transcripts of not one but two calls with Ukraine’s president.
Reminder: President Trump does have Constitutional privileges based in separation of powers.
Hoyer predicts impeachment vote next week
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Democrats will likely impeach Trump before Christmas, setting the stage for floor votes in the lower chamber next week.
