Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff Announce Two Articles of Impeachment – Abuse of Power, and Obstruction of Congress…

The Democrats within the House of Representatives have decided to suspend House Impeachment Resolution [HR 660] without following their own rules that established a House Minority Hearing. Instead, House leadership have produced two partisan articles of impeachment for a full house vote.

Both articles are exceptionally weak; the Democrats are rushing to cut their losses:

♦Article One is “Abuse of power” – and structured on a false premise that President Trump “exercised the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefit, while ignoring or injuring the national interest.”

♦Article Two is “Obstruction of Congress” – and structured on a ridiculous premise that President Trump “engaged in unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry”, by challenging congressional subpoenas and seeking relief from the judicial branch.

Both articles are structurally deficient in the extreme. It will be interesting to see which House democrats could possibly vote for these articles, especially article two. There is a possibility some democrats will ignore Pelosi’s whip.

The weakness of the articles now actually appears to be a feature, not a flaw. The exercise of the “impeachment process” writ large was more of a political promise to the far-left constituents of the resistance movement itself. Structurally there is no strength to either article; they appear designed to fail in the Senate. Again, a feature not a flaw.

Nationally the democrat resistance voters are not too smart. What Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler are delivering for them is an impeachment in name only. The downstream consequences for this incredibly partisan political effort could be a massive backlash amid independent voters and centrist democrats.

Traditionally, impeachment is constitutionally designed to remove an elected official from office. However, in this modern example the process has been intentionally corrupted to disparage the President, not to remove him.  In essence Pelosi has used the impeachment process as way to sooth the emotional needs of the far-left resistance.

    Senator Graham, please hold a brief trial with the following witnesses called: fake whistleblower, Adam Schiff, and the Bidens. And maybe throw in Fiona Hill for flavor.

If we, the People, fail in less than a year, then it is time to become embarrassed. We seek not check but check-mate in these proceedings. Timing is everything. So far the timing has been perfect.

          I agree with you on the timing.
          It has been difficult at times waiting for these seditious criminals to be punished. However, I believe President Trump has been waiting for maximum damage to them in the 2020 elections.
          Quite a while ago he made a comment like “I want to wait for the right time.” I was expecting his MOABs to drop in the 2018 mid terms, but that didnt happen. I have been thinking its still a little early for the MOAB (mother of all bombs) and expected it to come right after the Demonrats name the nominee.
          However, I am ok if we get an early Christmas present.

    • Gramma, I think when the democrats lose at this impeachment farce we should charge the Democrat Party for all the expenses rather than having the taxpayers foot the bill. After all it is only democrats supporting impeachment with no support from republicans. In most states the losing side usually has to pay the legal fees of the winning side. I say we should bill the Democrat Party since there has been no basis in facts; it’s just been opinions and innuendos. If the Parties have to pay for some of the stupid strictly partisan things that their members do, perhaps some it can be curtailed at the onset. Having a blank check from the taxpayers where the taxpayers have no voice in the matter is not right. I also sent this to my Rep Louie Gohmert but since I haven’t heard back from him he must not believe I’m serious about it. I will have to call an reaffirm my thoughts to him.

      Some states offer “recall elections” for relief but not all. I imagine Google might produce a list of such states. If your state allows this and you don’t like your representative or senator, be sure to inquire into this line of correction.

      For the rest of it, it’s the ballot box and it’s not coming soon enough.

      No not really. You see they were sent there by the people. The people have to be impeached if you want to find the source of the problem.

      And when the Senate punts on the whole thing and nothing really gets revealed or resolved on way or another (i.e. the whitewash is applied), we can’t impeach them either, for same reason.

      We have met the enemy and he is us.

      You may be disappointed. It is my opinion that the democrats have figured out how to rig the 2020 election results. Look up a Spanish owned company by the name of SCYTL.

      After they announce the democratic party winner, the media will howl about how the republicans blocked the rightful impeachment of Trump and the American people saw through it. Soros will then pay for thousands of people to be bussed into DC for street celebrations.

      This situation will give a lot of RINO’s a good excuse to go along with the results. They will have been missing their gravy troughs for four long years and they will be hungry. This in my view is why the democrats are impeaching president Trump.

      I disagree with sundance (I don’t often do that) that Pelosi is simply throwing a bone to the uber left idiots. It is my opinion that it is far deeper than that. Let us pray hard that either I am dead wrong or that the good guys are onto the democrats plan and can figure out a way to stop it before we end up in some kind of a civil war.

        I don’t think the impeachment is as big a tool for them as you suggest (it will not give rhinos cover), i agree w/SD that they need to dirty him up for the base. I don’t think it’s this dire, but —

        everyone should have no illusions about what’s coming in 2020. Their candidates suck. PDT is more popular now than in 2016. They cannot win, so they will cheat and steal. Heck, even when they can win, they still cheat and steal. Anyone who doubts this – just look how the dnc treated Bernie – and he’s one of their own!

        There’s no question they’ve been planning the dirtiest election of the past century for 2020. Will check out the Spanish firm. Mark Elias (hrc counsel who set up funding for the Steele dossier) has been working to setting up mechanisms within states to challenge the 2020 results in state and federal courts. Look him up – his own bio states he specializes in overturning election results and he’s been quite successful.

        Along with this, the usual Dem tactics – votes from every felon, illegal alien, and dead person (always a big dem voting block); missing ballot boxes; cries of voter suppression, etc etc – the cry of the community organizers – “vote early and vote often,” is meant to be taken literally, not figuratively.

        They also hope that might tilt some suburbanite independents as well. Meanwhile, they are deathly afraid they’ll have a repeat of 2016 where there was no genuine enthusiasm for hrc. They’re all in on Trump hatred and fear to motivate their voters.

        Elections are stolen on a county and city basis, where the results are close enough that they can fake it over the finish line. They will target the five or so swing states, strategically figure out how much they’d need to carry the state and where and how to get it.

        And don’t forget Twitter, google, facebook’s own efforts to swing the vote. Personally I think they’re as big a threat as anything the Dems will cook up.

        I think we will prevail. Be ready for it!

    The articles will be dismissed by the Senate without a trial as being without merit. Few in the Senate want anybody to know how they got so wealthy on their salary.

    Pelosi gets a victory: ‘We impeached him, but the dirty evil corrupt Republicans in the Senate refused to throw out Orange Man Bad’. She retains the speakership but AOC gets angrier and more powerful.

    Trump deflects another rock thrown at him at the angry left, content that yet more fence-sitting voters have grown more disgusted with Democratic antics and will either vote for him or sit out the election.

    I have a slightly different take.
    These Dems expect Trump to behave like a politician (i.e. like themselves) but they just don’t learn.
    What they would have done in his position is use all kinds of underhanded ways to stifle the efforts of the impeachment inquiry, including threatening people with the sack or actually firing people.
    They tried the same strategy with the Mueller fiasco. They were certain Trump would behave just like they themselves would have behaved.
    That expected behaviour would have been documented and exposed by one of their implants/holdovers (Aren’t there plenty of them in Washington, just like Ciaramella and Vindman?)

    But Trump isn’t like them and he didn’t fall for it.
    He didn’t fire anybody.
    He didn’t threaten anybody.
    He didn’t let loose the IRS or DOJ on anybody.
    Now they got nothing, just like 18 months of Mueller (waiting for an error from Trump) got nothing.

    Both the Mueller fiasco and this impeachment “inquiry” look to me like set-ups to get Trump to make the wrong move in order to charge him with an actual crime.
    He hasn’t put a foot wrong, now the Dems are stuck.

Trump’s people will no doubt get to them over the next few days and remind them that it’s an easy matter to schedule a rally in their district with the R challenger, and there’s no Ryan around to throw this election this time. The money will flow where it needs to go.

    Trump can go on the offensive with McConnell now, and demand an open Senate trial, which McConnell and the Swamp definitely don’t want. He can demand concessions and squeeze. McConnell is delaying the USMCA vote past impeachment, so he obviously is playing the same game. It’s just more ammunition for Trump though, as he can use USMCA to pummel the Swamp all through the phony witch hunt trial, while demanding it be extended and expanded painfully (for the Swamp).

    You can’t get over on this guy. He has steered this magnificently, and planned for every contingency. He baited them with that phone call, and they jumped on the hook, forcing their constant threat of impeachment into his chosen timeline. We can thank Biden, for being stupid enough to have been videoed TWICE bragging about doing the exact same thing they’re accusing Trump of doing. That fool was the critical enabler for this op.

    And the Muh Russia nonsense was left out of the articles, as clearly the Swamp and Deep State can’t afford exposure. Trump’s strategy has been brilliant, one of the most brilliant political ops I’ve ever seen.

    Well if they’re weak and designed to fail in the Senate, they should fail in the House.

    With this, the Impeachment gets the asterisk, not the President.

    Dems need to hang impeachment on this president so that moving forward, whenever Trump does anything (e.g., nominate a Supreme Court justice, bring trade treaties for approval by the Senate, etc.), their reply will be: “He’s an impeached president. He doesn’t have the authority and therefore, we will resist him at every step, we won’t cooperate.” This works even if Dems lose the House, and even if the Senate refuses the articles/votes to acquit.

    “The weakness of the articles now actually appears to be a feature, not a flaw. The exercise of the “impeachment process” writ large was more of a political promise to the far-left constituents of the resistance movement itself. Structurally there is no strength to either article; they appear designed to fail in the Senate. Again, a feature not a flaw.”

    This is what I started to wonder recently, if they arent purposely sabotaging the process so that the Senate almost HAS to discard it immediately.

    Would she chance a vote of she isn’t sure she has enough? A vote that doesn’t pass is ruinous for them. The unhinged left knows the Reps won’t vote for, but enough Dims vote not to pass? Wow, that could be catastrophic for them. What will she do?

    The no’s might be primaried by further lefties than they are

      A vote that doesn’t pass is ruinous and a vote that does pass is ruinous. My guess is a vote that doesn’t pass is Pelosi’s best option. Christmas is coming up, and then after that primary season is in full swing. It might be better to drop the whole thing and move on; people have short memories anyway.
