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.

    Nadler says Article 1 of impeachment will charge “abuse of power” by the president, and Article 2 will charge him with “concealing evidence” about how he abused his power. Wait. If you don’t have the evidence, how can you charge Article 1? Seems the articles cancel each other out

      This is not a good argument. I’d stay away from it because it gives the Dems an excuse for not having any evidence. Think about it.

        Might be missing something here but how can you charge a crime with no evidence of said crime? Oh wait – as the derelict impeached judge/congressman Alcee Hastings (D-GA) said of congressional authority to pass obamacare, ‘we make it up as we go along’.

          You claim the evidence is being hidden by the perpetrator, which is what the tweet implies. The correct argument is that there was no crime, hence, no evidence. Nothing to hide because nothing exists.

        The Democrats know, from the numbers, that impeachment has not found favour with independents, and accordingly, they need to get out if this ASAP, but trying to preserve their integrity, and giving something to satisfy their base.

        Well it seems the game is to put before the Senate something that the Senate will dismiss, without a trial, on the basis of no case to answer.

        This will let the Democrats off the hook, since their will not be detailed scrutiny of their behavoir and no inconvenient witnesses called (exposing Democrat corruption and/or conspiracy). The Democrats will then spin this dismissal without a trial, as a Partisan Republican Whitewash acting illegitimnately to prop up an illegitmate President.

        And you can bet your bottom dollar, that their PR mouthpiece, the MSM, will give wall to wall coverage of the lack of due process in the Senate, the bias and partisan behavoir of the Republicans etc. and how they are propping up an illegitmate President. This will come as nectar to their base.

        At any rate, that is how I see the game plan, and a tactical retreat still preserving their honour.

        PS. I know that one should never use integrity, honour and Democrats in the same sentence. We all know that the Democrats have no integrity or honour.

          It ‘aint just Dems. “Our” Senate Republicans appear to be throwing us conservatives under the bus again by denying us our day in court and the opportunity to take our government institutions back. I think that will eventually turn out to be an enormous mistake because most people want the “system” fixed, not blown-up. Make it crystal clear that it will never be fixed and people will change their minds about the benefit of maintaining it. I think *this* is what McConnell and Graham are potentially risking if they go the “whitewash” route of denying our day in court. Dangerous stuff!!

            Rudy lobbed a huge ball at Graham on Sunday; he has evidence of Republican Senator wrongdoing re Ukrainian kickbacks, w/Kloboucher involved as well. Neither Graham nor McConnell want their shorts pulled down to their ankles. This is likely a two or three-way deal IF the President lets it go the way it looks like it’s going. Likely, the reason Democrats reduced the Articles to 2 that are really not acts that are impeachable. Dimms agreed to back off on quid pro con, which wasn’t a winning point for them either so that the subject of Ukraine wouldn’t be too relevant.

          And you don’t see the President being exonerated by the Durham Report and/or the court case headed to SCOTUS which questions whether this “impeachment inquiry” was even legit? What about Rudi’s Ukraine investigation? What about General Flynn’s case being thrown out? There is a boatload of events that are coming to fruition before Nov. 20 that should reinforce President Trump’s assertion that the MSM and Demonrats are in cahoots and crooked as hell. Americans hate bullies and love underdogs. It will be plain to see to both open minded Democrats and independent voters that President Trump has stood up to these bullies.

          There’s separation of powers for a reason. The President doesn’t give up his/her due process rights just because he/she becomes President. Executive privilege and attorney-client privilege are essential powers to the executive. He/She can’t do their job if they can’t count on their conversations w/certain staff privileged. And not turning over evidence or not making a witness available because you assert those privileges is not evidence of obstruction or a crime.

          At this rate, the Dimms can fit in 3 or 4 more impeachment inquiries before the election while, once again, nothing gets done for the country.

      I’m not convinced, still, at this late hour, that Pelosi will actually move forward with this. It seems suicidal, unless she has absolute assurance from Mitchy that it will never go to a trial in the Senate.

      BTW, Ted Cruz said on Hannity last night no trial, and Lindsey has been saying the same.

      Three options:

      1. No impeachment vote, President declares victory
      2. Impeachment vote, Huge Senate Trial where Republicans embarass everybody involved, incredibly damaging to the Democrats
      3. Impeachment vote, Mitch refuses to have Senate Trial leaving President Trump with no chance to defend himself in either the House or the Senate

      My money would be on #1 or #3, #3 if Mitchy is completely complacent in the entire thing.

    After reading Sundance’s tweet thread on this topic, I found myself wondering how differently they planned to run this whole Impeachment Railroad with Cummings as the 4th Horseman. If I’m remembering correctly, the bulk of the Inquiry work was to be shared between Schiff’s and Cummings’ committees. I can only imagine what sort of circus we’d have seen had there been 2 committees working at it.

        New Document Exposes Two Russian Dossier Sources
        May 17, 2019

        https://bongino.com/new-document-exposes-two-russian-dossier-sources/

        Excerpt:

        Thanks to recently released notes from an interview the State Department’s Kathleen Kavalec had with dossier author Christopher Steele, a possible bombshell connection between Halper and the dossier has been uncovered. As discussed earlier in the week on the podcast, those notes also demonstrate Steele failing to keep his story straight between the State Department and FBI, proving how unreliable he is.

        In Kavalec’s handwritten notes from their interview she makes note of two of Steele’s dossier sources; “Trubnikov” and “Surkov.”

        Surkov is Vladislav Surkov, an aide of Vladimir Putin who is on the U.S.’s list of sanctioned individuals, and Trubnikov is Vyacheslav Trubnikov, who is currently the First Deputy of Foreign Minister of Russia and formally served as the Director of Foreign Intelligence Service.

        Interestingly, Trubnikov is an associate of Halper.

    “Abuse if power” is NOT grounds for impeachment. Period.

    This is unconstitutional and is a full blown coup. Are there actually militias that can be called up if necessary? I tend to think they’re a myth but am hoping there are patriots at the ready in a worst case scenario. From Mattis & Kelly we now know they’ve corrupted the USMC which IMO was our greatest hope for salvation. Semper Fidelis means something in our Marine household.

    I am praying for a MASSIVE MASSIVE declassification going back decades. Expose the deep state traitors.

I think it would take something large and need some sort of catalyst, an armed march or maybe a procession of bikers-armed and peaceful. Most need something to join. I am sure many people think about heading to DC but to what end? To be one person standing at the capital to protest the corrupt government? We need something to ignite the anger, something to drive people to peaceful action in support of this President and the Constitution – something to join. Who or what organization could start this?

          A hypothetical I particularly remember is this;

          Let’s say tomorrow the government decides to confiscate all guns in the country. Let’s say 90% of gun owners immediately comply. Of those who talk about resisting, let’s further say that 90% of them immediately surrender their weapons when law enforcement shows up.

          That still leaves over 850,000 people willing to fight to the death for their Second Amendment rights. They also know the terrain and would have quiet support of many times that number.

          Those same people, if called, would fight for this country and our Constitution and freedoms. Whoever actually pushes hard enough to light the spark is absolutely F*****.

          Our civilian gun owners own HALF of all firearms on the planet. They have 100 times the firearms of our own military, 400 times as many as law enforcement.

          There’s a reason the globalists have needed to use subversion over the course of decades instead of their usual methods… and even then, 2016 proved there was still too much resistance to their plans for even their rampant cheating at the ballot box to overcome.

          Personally, I’ll do whatever President Trump asks of me. If he’s not asking for militias to march on DC it’s because doing so would be detrimental to his mission to restore America and I’ll trust his judgment.

        Chuck – It’s a nice thought, and I know it’s true. But what is never talked about is the fact that today’s militia is not like the militia in colonial times. Back then they had weapons that were pretty much the same as the military, with the exception of cannons. But today, the military have far superior weapons. People may own rifles and handguns, but they don’t have the technology that the military has. The military have technology that let them see through walls, bullets that travel around corners, weapons that are hardly known by the public but that will stop an entire army without firing a shot because they work through things like sound waves and make an enemy immobile, and on and on and on. It wouldn’t be the easy battle so many patriots think it would. It would be a bloodbath like no other and the left would certainly ask for help and bring in troops from foreign countries, even Russia and China, that would use their weaponry to lay waste to the country because they’d see it as an opportunity to control what is left of America.

        It’s good that many Americans have the ability to defend themselves, but if it becomes a battle for control of the nation, it would take more than the armed militias. That’s why it’s critical that we win at the ballot box, and that’s highly doubtful when it comes to the Senate and House. For too many decades voters have not held those houses of Congress accountable and even if they started to with the 2020 election, it would take many election cycles to get a majority in control (I’m not saying a Republican majority, I’m referring to politicians who will do the will of the people. Right now, at best, 10% of Republicans in the House and Senate can be trusted to serve the voters. The others are not guaranteed to do so.). So, our job is to educate people and get the vote out because there’s no other way to save this country.

        We lost in the schools not in the shooting ranges. We lost in the pulpit not in the survival classes. We lost in the colleges, not in gun collections or body armor, in the government jobs that dictate BS. We lost in the school boards and the state and local governments, in the courts. We lost in voting machines and petitions, not in flag quotas. We lost in spreading Gods word instead we are allowing Muslims to build mosques because people WILL fill that God shaped hole. Gambling, pot, sex trafficking, gangs.

        And last but not least we lost our families. We sold out our kids for money and prestige instead of being moms and dads.
        It’s easier to die than live right but that was never our calling.
        You know repentance is an act not a speech, and God says repent and I will heal your land. There is no other way and it has to be just this way. It is and was always God, we all acknowledge Trump is a miracle, so who gets that credit?

    There are many in the Senate trying to get Mitchy to not even take up the Trial… which in my opinion would be a worst case scenario (but still a positive, just not as positive as the others) to President Trump.

    Ted Cruz said as much on Hannity last night. Lindsey has brought it up over and over. They basically want there not to be a senate trial, leaving President Trump with this albatross around his neck… convicted in the house with no chance to defend himself in the Senate.

    Mitch (who is a swamp creature extraordinaire) has strangely said that USMC won’t get a vote in the senate until they’re done with the full impeachment trial.

    Now IF there is going to be a Senate Trial, I actually applaud Mitch doing this, he’s playing hardball before the vote and it signals perhaps for whatever reason he’ll play hardball with this trial too.

    I think Mitch is just flexing though, I don’t think he’ll have a Senate Trial, if the House votes to impeach which we still do not know if that will even happen.

    I’m sure all this was decided weeks ago by Mitch and Nancy whatever they come up with to screw us all over.

      It’s even worse.
      Here is the protocol for subpoena. The one issuing it is the one who sues to get it enforced. That is, the House is supposed to sue, take it to court, not the Exec.
      – Issue subpoena
      – Recipient blows raspberries (asserts privilege, for example, or just blows off)
      – Sue recipient in court, ask court for an order compelling testimony or production
      – Recipient argues his point, court makes a decision
      So, the reason this never went to court is because the House did not sue. The House created the problem, and is now blaming Trump for the problem the House created. Even if the subpoena is valid (meaning issued pursuant to a valid power of the House – it is, we are past the “just a letter”), blowing it off is not obstruction until the recipient is blowing off the court. Trump gave a reason for not complying. The process is rigged. House could sue and rebut the reason given. It didn’t.

      I won’t – only b/c I can’t stomach RNC getting their forced 30% cut.

      PDJT is the ONLY reason the RNC shows record profits. Yet RNC is intentionally throwing elections– having no R-candidates, allowing R-incumbents to retire 3-fold to Dems, & FAIL to support MAGA candidates.

      When the RNC solicits donors directly– they’re getting empty envelopes back, with strongly worded condemnation. Their Phone-calls/emails receive quite an earful, with many saying “not a dime until…”

      Of course that’s my personal stance on the issue. Others should do whatever they’re comfortable with.

      I realize it’s not ideal, or exactly fair… but PDJT’s got this, & he knows it.

      Meanwhile, ZERO accountability for the Swamp/Dems/UNIparty after 3 YEARS, isn’t fair either, so…

    I imagine some of you follow Scott Adams? The creator of Dilbert and author of several books. POTUS invited him to the Oval. Adams predicted Trump’s victory because he’s a studier of persuasion and he recognized Trump’s persuasive abilities.

    While Scott occasionally utters profanities on his periscopes, he’s usually a laid back guy. Not so today. His comments are always insightful but his opening, esp. on the impeachment, capture the essence, I believe, of what over half the country FEELS right now …and it ain’t good for Dems.

      While I hope you’re right, I’m curious how you get to the number of over half the country feeling this way today. I’d say the 30% of eligible voters who voted for Trump plus some other folks who’ve been won over since his election as they’ve seen the job he’s done, but I’m curious how you get to over 50%. (I get stuck on the fact that only 60% of eligible voters actually voted in 2016 and those were slit approximately in half between Trump and Hillary. But 40% of eligible voters didn’t even vote and I wonder where they’re at and if they are more involved today to actually know what’s going on in the country.)

        I mean that right now, over half the country knows how much these politicians (Pelosi, Nads, Schiff, and the others with camera time) were playing roles, were ACTiNG. Actors know when their script is a POS and when not even Lawrence Olivier can bring dignity to it. They also know that the most charismatic of actors can’t save a production if everything and everybody else is bad.

        These pols, these “actors” behaved as if they felt their audience, the voters, SHOULD be able to suspend disbelief and buy into the story they were telling.

        That’s a supreme insult to the audience, an insult to their intelligence, that the pols thought they were stupid enough to buy the story and the actors.

    Ironically, I see this as “Capitulation Day”, on a day when House,Dems are announcing impeachment charges.

    Nancy capitulating on USMCA, and saying she,was holding out fir major changes, when in reality the changes are quite minor.

    Graham signalling he (and McConnell) have NO interest in a Senate TRIAL, or really exploring corruption in Ukraine (and elsewhere, is IMHO and admission that the Insurance plan, to ‘Watergate’ PDJT, is a failure.

    Graham won’t be able to go to PDJT, tell him there are enough votes in the,Senate to convict, and beg him to resign for party and Country. So again, Capitulation.

    In addition to naming this “Capitualtion day”, we might refer to today (ironically, again) as “The day the impeachment died”. Someone should do a al yankovich type parody on Don McClean, lol.

    The articles are weak, lame and give the Republicons in Senate a wide open door way out, of voting NOT to have a trial, and just dismiss.
    About as close,as you can come to a full exhoneration, in a quasi-criminal trial format.
    Recall, in our criminal justice system, no one is typically “exhonerated”; they are found “not guilty”, they are NOT found “innocent”.

    And, of coarse the I.G. report, which came out as expected. Detailed in great detail the wrongdoing, but could find no evidence of INTENT to do wrong.

    The consistent mantra of the ‘investigate to exhonerate’ swamp technique for addressing scandals, once they reach the point where they can’t be ignored.

    So many examples of PDJT’s statements that,were derided when he made,them, proving to be true, and now, ONE more, and its a biggie; “I was ‘wiretapped’!”

    No longer a ‘right wing conspiracy theory’ or the paranoid ravings of Orange man bad, its a FACT!

        There’s been ‘nibbles’ in the media about censure instead of impeachment, but I think Pelosi made a fateful decision when she came out publicly in support of the current fiasco back in September. The extreme vocal wing of the party has demanded conformity, and for some reason the old guard was unable to resist it.
        Meanwhile, polling is out there that indicates a majority of voters OPPOSE impeachment in all the battleground states.

        In my opinion, dropping ‘Extortion’ and ‘Bribery’ from the articles is going to cost DEMs as the accusations whimper along to a slow death in the Senate. They will shed supporters who realize it’s a sham whereas the opposition will remain steadfast.

    The recent OAN reports on American Senate elites — and now Speaker Pelosi’s son — connections to Ukraine corruption is very much like the Killing of Osama Bin Laden inside a Pakistani ISI compound in that neighborhood of Pakistani elites.

    The Obama Administration assassination was a strategic victory in that it was an undeniable “Teachable Moment” as to who and what the ISI and the Pakistani military are…an allies of terrorists.

    Similarly the OAN Ukraine reports have outed elected Congressmen & Senators as paid agents of foreign powers, not representatives of the American People. [I’m looking at you Senator Graham (R-Ukrainian Money)]

    We Americans (collectively) cannot un-see what has been seen.

    This problem with our elected Congressional members cannot be fixed short of every Congressman and Senator being removed _simultaneously_.

    And that outcome is impossible to accomplish within the American constitutional system by peaceful means.

    Report from the trenches from this weekend, I have an older gentleman I know who’s well into his 80’s, and we never really talk politics because frankly he’s a pretty weird guy, and he’s starting to slip a little bit. I say that in a loving way, he’s a good guy who’s lived a long life and I have a lot of respect for him, so I just don’t get into politics because I don’t want to have to disagree with anything he says. I’ve heard him mention anti-Trump stuff before, but nothing hateful or spiteful or anything, just some random comment because he actually is slipping a little bit.

    Anyways! This weekend he brought it up. He said that come to find out, one of the people who testified against the President to get him impeached, come to find out is a pedo and was going to go to jail for many years but cut a deal with the democrats to testify so he’d get immunity.

    I don’t know the entire gist of that, or where he heard it, but I think it does have some truth to it doesn’t it? Can’t remember the guy’s name.

    so as he was laughing, I said “boy they cannot stand Trump, can they?” and he looked me dead in the eye, and said “They don’t like him because they can’t control him like they could control all the other Presidents.”

    And then we started talking about something else. Make of that what you will.

    Nadler is charging the President with abuse of power. Money was paid on time to Ukraine, no quid pro quo, no bribery, no pressure and not one witness who can corroborate a darn thing except their feelings and thoughts on the Presidents intentions based on second hand information from an anonymous whistleblower. All based on a call that was listened by many with full transcript released. Said transcript was verbally altered and contorted by Schiff when he read it into the Congressional Record. MSM reporting these altered versions of reality ad fact and at the same time are refusing to give air time to those who are presenting the truth. Mix into this witches brew the complete disregard for defense to present a fair case and the ability for the President to face his accusers and you have the makings of a toxic brew of corruption that is designed to kill the results of the last election. That this is happening in broad daylight in the USA is surreal. And for a touch of the twighlight zone, we have video evidence of Biden actually committing the crimes the President is accused of. This is the definition of fubar.

Say what you want about polls, the president is being impeached as well as acquitted or convicted in public via polls.

    This is nothing more than an overrated censure in the enigma of an imagined impeachment.

You may get a political victory of some sort (lord only knows what that might be), but I will predict right here and now this will you cost you the political war against Trump. It will take the form of not only his re-election but, quite possibly be enough of a victory to give him a mandate for his second term and will ultimately make him a king maker to choose his predecessor in 2024.

The history when written about this blunder will ridicule the Pelosi and cadre of mental case panhandler flunkies will be merciless. And she KNOWS it. She knows she is assured of being EX-Speaker of the House. But now being W—-A—-Y out over their skiis, they got to take the choice of 2 options–piss off even the shrinking base or pretend we had a case.

    I think IF they take the vote, a large percentage of the democrats who are about to lose their cushy congress seats, hope that it DOES NOT have the votes. The democrat party, either way, is going to be extinct courtesy of President Donald Trump.

    Through a series of their horrendous choices, it’s too late , there is only one hill and that’s the one it will be shown they died on. Donald Trump will write their epitaph.
