House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Discusses Partisan Impeachment Process and USMCA…

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy appeared on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the severely political nature of Speaker Pelosi’s impeachment agenda.

Within the interview McCarthy highlights that House rules and processes have been usurped to construct a one-party political impeachment operation.  Additionally, McCarthy notes the larger objective of House democrats to stall the USMCA trade ratification in order to undermine President Trump and support China.

    What if the reason VSGPDJT mentioned China and Biden/ Kerry at a presser last week is to get dems on the defensive and maybe vote on the USMCA to show us they aren’t really in bed with China? – (tho all of us here know they are no matter what they do)

      Tiffthis,
      IMHO,….No. Just as PDJT knows he is not going to get a Trade ‘Deal’with CCP/China, …OR the EU, because A) you can’t trust either one to negotiate in good faith, and honor their commitments B) to agree to PDJT’s reasonable terms would,spell the end of their system, ….PDJT knows (for the same reasons) he is not going to get ANY deal with Pelosi/Dems for ANY legislation or trade agreements.

      Not only is Nancy holding up USMCA, which would boost economy, she is holding up a 2 trillion over 10 years INFRASTRUCTURE deal.

      Think of the jobs created; Highways, roads, sewer/water systems, hospitals, schools, etc.

      Nancy met with PDJT a while back. Firstly, she proposed upping from 1 trilluon over 10, to 2 trillion. She was surprised when PDJT agreed.

      Then, she THOUGHT she laid her trap for him, while actually stepping right in it. She suggested they meet again in 2 weeks, and at that time PDJT suggest a plan for how it is paid for. (Her trap).

      She was thinking “offsets” , i.e. NOT spending on military or domestic programs, in order to ‘pay’ for infrastructure. PDJT agreed, and she was positively giddy after the meeting.

      Then, she realised the trap she had walked into; Firstly, the WALL certainly qualifies as infrastructure, but secondly PDJT was gonna come back with projections showing the U.S. will take in over 2 trillion in tariffs, over ten years, so no need for “offsets”.

      Hence, she did Not do the 2 week follow up meeting. All because hurting PDJT, both by not giving him a ‘win’, and by not further boosting the economy, is her priority, just like not passing USMCA.

      When PDJT says the,do-nothing dems COULD be working on infrastructure, THIS is what he is talking about. And, as has been written, if the Fed were working FOR our economy, they would lower interest rates, making financing this infrastructure plan cheap, interest rate,wise.

      And, I say do nothing dems, but you don’t see the Rep’s pointing this out, OR joining PDJT’s call to the Fed, to lower interest rates. The Uniparty, in total doesn’t CARE that our crumbling infrastructure continues to crumble, and their intrangisets costs us several million good paying deplorable jobs.

      Hence I do not think PDJT is trying to goad Congress into passing USMCA.
      The Congress has decided to give PDJT NOTHING, and he KNOWS it.

      Can NOT deal with Nancy, she doesn’t keep her word, and if she made deals,with PDJT on legislation, it would spell the end of the,system of the swamp. Just like the other Conmunists, CCP/China, and CCP/EU, …CCP/USA is no different.

    In 2016, many voters voted for Donald Trump not really knowing or understanding what his message was and what he was all about. Voters were simply fed up with the status quo in politics and said What the heck, what can we lose?, Imagine the swell of people voting for him in 2020 when he begins to release his message for the future built on his credibility from 2016. It will be historic.

      Awesome avatar, DwW, and great point. The President won handily with corruption in full sway with all forms of election tampering in 2016.

      While it can be fully expected that massive voter fraud and other election tampering will be launched against the 2020 race, we’re onto them now and much better educated and prepared. It may even be possible that the insidious Russia Hoax put the kabosh on continued corrupt Dem election foreign influence schemes. They continue to attempt to perpetuate the absurd Hoax while conniving other plots, which only brings a brighter light and focus on their crimes going forward. Oh, they’ll try, but they’ve been exposed. Look how much more we know, how much evidence of their crimes, fraud and graft has been revealed since our duly-elected President took office.

      The Impeachment Debacle will only serve to bring MUCH more damning info to light. It’s like the Dems are the Keystone Cops cavorting through hell.

      McCarthy is only different from Ryan because he is Minority Leader. He is presenting the classic GOPe show of “Conservative values” and “full support for PDJT” only because he is NOT IN THE MAJORITY and powerless to make good on his rhetoric.

      Hopefully the Republicans win back the House Majority and hold the Senate in 2020. But when that happens, we will see a sudden shift back to their “independent branch of government” mode. Won’t support the President unless he capitulates to their graft-laden requirements in any bill they pass, and they will somehow find any proposal that advances the MAGA agenda to be problematic.

      Just remember the 115th Congress (2017-2018) and how frustrated we all were at their foot dragging and refusal to pass the President’s MAGA Agenda items that we all voted for. Repeal Ozerocare (nope), Fix the broken immigration laws (nope), fund the Wall (nope), Drain the Swamp (which would have required supporting the exposure of the Muh Russia hoax, but…nope).

      All the GOPe did besides the Dec 2017 tax cut and approve a few judges was run their mouths but accomplish very little. Most of what was accomplished was by Executive order. And McConnel refused to allow the President to make any recess appointments.

The protection is against unjust retaliatory acts, such as demotion, transfer to a hostile environment, negative work reviews, decreased salary, and the ultimate retaliatory act, firing.

          Because Brennan is no longer a government employee, he cannot be fired, so J.O.B. would have absolutely no claim to be a ‘Whistle Blower’.

    It is difficult to believe the Democrats in the House of Representatives wouldn’t follow through with their threats of impeachment against President Trump.

    Sure, the Democrats might lose big if they do follow through with their threats. But they will almost certainly lose the whole ball game if they don’t. So they will do it.

    The question now becomes, how will the Democrats go about getting the articles of impeachment passed in the House of Representatives while at the same time leaving their own hands as free of dirt as they can possibly manage?

    The Constitution doesn’t include a detailed process for the House of Representatives to follow in passing articles of impeachment against a president.

    Based on what Sundance has described so far, here is a rough outline of how I think it will be done:

    Nancy Pelosi revises the House rules, and hires a staff of Lawfare Alliance attorneys, so that House Democrats can perform their own investigations and interview their own witnesses without the participation of minority Republicans. (Action now complete.)

    The staff of hired lawyers, working for the majority Democrats inside their assigned committees, assemble the draft articles of impeachment, including of a list of allegations and supporting evidence consisting of witness testimony plus whatever documentary material can be gathered (Action now in progress. Completion Date TBD.))

    The draft articles are combined into one bill of impeachment, and it is submitted to the House Judiciary Committee along with the assembled body of alleged supporting evidence. (Completion Date TBD.)

    Within a day of the bill’s submission to the House Judiciary Committee, a discharge petition is filed for release of the bill onto the House floor without further committee debate. The discharge petition itself includes strict limits concerning how much time can be spent on the House floor debating the bill of impeachment, if the discharge petition is approved. (Completion Date TBD.)

    A simple majority vote of the full House approves the discharge petition, and a time-limited debate over the articles of impeachment immediately commences on the House floor. After the allotted time for debate has been consumed, the full House then approves the articles of impeachment by simple majority vote. (Completion Date TBD.)

    What does it all add up to?

    Slam bam, thanky ma’am, Nancy Pelosi has now engineered a quick and relatively painless impeachment of President Trump. Painless at least up to that point, anyway. What happens next is now in President Trump’s and the Senate’s hands to figure out.

    If the President’s lawyers challenge the bill of impeachment in court, the Democrats will accuse him of using the judicial system to assist in a coverup and an obstruction of justice.

    If the Senate refuses to take up the bill of impeachment, because the House didn’t follow long-standing procedure and protocol, the Democrats will then accuse Senate Republicans of assisting in a coverup and an obstruction of justice.

    If the Senate accepts the bill of impeachment, and President Trump is subsequently acquitted in a Senate trial, then the Democrats will once again accuse Senate Republicans of assisting in a coverup and an obstruction of justice.

    But it’s worse than that.

    If Senate Republicans do allow a trial to go forward, then they have assisted Nancy Pelosi in creating a quick and relatively painless means for the House of Representatives to impeach any duly-elected president.

    Plus they’ve set a precedent for how to quickly impeach and send to trial any president the House majority doesn’t happen to like.

    This is why Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats will move quickly forward with impeachment. Their goal is to paralyze the Trump presidency and to win big in November, 2020, with help from a media-driven impeachment circus that just goes on and on and on.

    They’ve calculated that the odds are in their favor; that the rewards are worth the exceptional risks; and that they are ready, willing, and able to take the mother of all high stakes political gambles.
