Two Democrat Congressmen have launched an Impeachment Article against Donald Trump. They claim that he “Obstructed Justice” (which they class as High Crime or Misdemeanor) by firing former FBI Director, James Comey, during his investigation. The reality is that this is not supposed to work. Even Nancy Pelosi is against it, and many Democrats are distancing themselves. It is part of a larger plot to disenchant the public in time for the 2018 elections, nothing more.
The Democrats are running “interference” to such a level, that even news hounds can’t accurately follow how many fronts the Trump Administration is being attacked from. And this is the point. The Dems want the voting public to think that with all these rumours flying around, some of it must be true. This is their plan to first win seats, and then launch a campaign to take back the White House in 2020.
They don’t expect any of the plots to stick. Not one! This is why the main players are keeping themselves aloof and with a certain amount of deniability. It is only the “worker ants” who are putting their heads above the parapet.
Remember this when election time comes around. They won’t be campaigning on issues or ideas. They will be campaigning on the premise that “some of this stuff MUST be true”.
Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Congressman Al Green (D-TX) have reportedly filed an Article of Impeachment against President Donald Trump for “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
According to Breaking911, “the Article is based on Article 1, dealing with ‘Obstruction of Justice,’ which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.”
The outlet goes on to state that Rep. Sherman first circulated a draft of the Article in June “and has been conferring with colleagues and legal experts from around the country since then.”
“I am pleased that Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has joined me in filing Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump,” Breaking911 quotes Rep. Sherman as declaring in a statement.
“We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election.”
“Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” Sherman reportedly continued, in reference to the ongoing nothing-burger surrounding reports that Donald Trump Jr. scheduled a meeting in 2016 to obtain information linked to the Kremlin on Hillary Clinton.
Sherman’s statement reportedly continues, “it now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.”
After much ranting and rambling about how President Trump is, like, literally, the worst person ever, Sherman’s statement concludes, “I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.”
As Breaking911 sums it up bluntly, “the article is likely to go nowhere given that Republicans control Congress.”
That, of course, hasn’t stopped liberals from bouncing off the walls.
According to The Hill, not all Democrats are behind Sherman and Green’s efforts.
The outlet states that Sherman’s draft “drew ire from fellow House Democrats” who “aren’t eager to aggressively push impeachment at this point.”
Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi things it’s too soon, stating Democrats need to be focusing on issues like healthcare for the time being.
Democrats apparently have yet to comment on the Articles of Impeachment filed today.
