COUP UPDATE: Dems Abandon Charge of Bribery, House Democrats File Two Articles of Impeachment on Trumped Up Charges of ‘High Crimes’

21

Articles of impeachment against Trump on Tuesday

They got nuthin. Like Russia, iit’s all subterfuge – fodder for the enemedia to impeach the American people.

From the story: This strategy would indicate that the House Democrats are taking a focused approach toward impeaching the president, one that leaves out potential bribery charges based on a quid pro quo over the requested Biden investigation and withheld military aid as well as obstruction of justice charge drawn from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report (Mediaite).   From Daily Mail’s David Martosko: What happened to bribery? It was all the rage a week ago (Twitter). From Sean Davis: What happened to bribery and quid pro quo and extortion and criminal violation of campaign finance laws? Those Democrat claims had no basis in reality, so Democrats are now back in their happy place: Impeach Orange Bad Man Because Orange Man Bad (Twitter).

The facts haven’t changed. And that’s bad news for the do-nothing obstructionists:

  1. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by the President. Despite weeks of hearings, Democrats have not produced a single piece of evidence showing that President Trump committed any criminal, impeachable offense whatsoever.
  2. Ukraine has said there was no pressure. President Zelensky and other Ukrainian officials have explained repeatedly that they never felt pushed.
  3. Lethal aid to Ukraine wouldn’t even exist without President Trump. For all the Democrats’ posturing about national security and aid, it was President Trump who made the decision to provide Ukraine with lethal aid. The Obama Administration had rejected doing so for years.
  4. This is an unfair, unprecedented impeachment stunt. House Democrats have continually broken with precedent and implemented an unfair “investigation” in a desperate attempt to ram impeachment through Congress.

NBC News is dancing naked in the streets:

House Democrats unveil two articles of impeachment, accusing Trump of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’

Democrats are expected to move swiftly to hold a committee and floor vote before the holiday break.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump about two and a half months after Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., first announced a formal impeachment inquiry into the president.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., announced that his committee will consider two articles of impeachment — one for abuse of power and the other for obstruction of Congress — charging Trump “with committing high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Nadler said the articles of impeachment were being filed in response to Trump allegedly soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 election, compromising national security, threatening the integrity of the upcoming election and concealing evidence from Congress and the American people. Trump, he said, violated his oath of office.

Trump, Nadler said, exercised “the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefit” and engaged in “indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry.”

Pelosi and Nadler were flanked by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters, House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal and House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney.

The announcement comes a day after the Judiciary Committee held its second public impeachment hearing, in which lawyers for Democratic and Republican members took turns summarizing the cases they’ve built.

NBC News reported Monday night that Democrats had settled on bringing two articles of impeachment against the president: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, according to five people familiar with impeachment discussions.

Democrats had been wrestling with whether to make the articles narrow — focusing only on the president’s alleged misconduct in Ukraine — or to make them broad — expanding them to not only include Ukraine but also obstruction of justice raised in the Mueller report or violations of the emoluments clause, for instance.

In a televised statement Thursday, Pelosi said the House would move forward with drafting articles of impeachment against the president, adding “the president leaves us no choice but to act.”

“Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and our heart full of love for America, today, I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said in a brief televised statement from the Capitol.

Once the articles come to the floor, they are expected to be adopted by the Democratic-controlled House. Once that happens, the process moves to the Republican-held Senate, which is then expected to hold a trial on whether to remove Trump from office. So far, Senate Republicans have shown no sign they will break with the president on impeachment.
