On Wednesday, House members convened with one another regarding articles of impeachment against President Trump. The meeting came weeks after Democrats in the body rammed through the weakest, thinnest, and fastest impeachment in United States history.
In the aforementioned articles, Democrats maintained that Trump obstructed justice and abused his power; moreover, leftist lawmakers claimed that the president’s phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart involved a quid-pro-quo. At this point, allegations of a quid-pro-quo are known lies, lies which both Trump and Zelensky have denounced time and time again.
However, following hours of debates, the House finally agreed upon a resolution to transfer articles of impeachment to the Senate, per reports from Breitbart News.
The Weakest, Thinnest, Fastest Impeachment in U.S. History
Since Speaker Pelosi has decided to finally do her job and stop sitting on articles of impeachment, the Senate can now hold a trial. During yesterday’s proceedings, the House Speaker declared that GOP senators who fail to do what she wants are engaging in a “cover-up.” This came after Pelosi’s multiple attempts to extend power where she doesn’t have it and control the Senate.
The Speaker wasn’t the only one to speak on the House floor, however. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also had some words, namely censure for the Democrats in his body. McCarthy slammed the attempts to “stain” President Trump’s legacy and time in office. Moreover, the leader also noted the lack of bipartisanship attached to Democrats’ sham of an impeachment.
It’s worth noting that Pelosi once stated that impeachment ought to be overwhelming, compelling and bipartisan; the sham impeachment that House Democrats forced through falls into none of the preceding categories.
What Happens Now?
The Senate trial for impeachment is set to begin as early as next week. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made clear that there’s no scenario where Democrats get their way and manipulate Senate Republicans into removing Trump from office.
In the end, President Trump will be exonerated. The reality is that Democrats have been trying to remove the president from office since the moment he arrived. By the left’s own admission, they’ve been hellbent on “resisting” Trump, rather than putting differences aside and showing an iota of willingness to work with this president.
Democrats have disgraced themselves, their party, and the House of Representatives. Quite frankly, they ought to be ashamed of themselves.
