Apart from defending localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, Democrats have been plotting to impeach the president.
It’s pretty much their hobby at this point.
The Dems have been preparing for a let down when Robert Mueller releases the well over due final report on this everlasting so-called Trump/Russia collision witch hunt.
Now House Democrats aren’t happy that Mueller couldn’t deliver. Mainly because there is no there there. But the Dems aren’t going to let the truth get in the way of their destroy Trump mission.
Instead, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday announced a new investigation into President Trump’s campaign, businesses, transition and administration, a probe that he says would lay the groundwork for Democrats to pursue impeachment proceedings against the President.
On Monday. The Judiciary Committee sent 82 letters to ‘people’ and ‘entities’ — including the White House, the Justice Department, senior campaign officials, Trump Organization officials and the President’s sons — with questions including asking about possible corruption, obstruction of justice, hush-money payments to women, collusion with Russia and allegations of the President abusing his office and using it for personal gain.
They are seeking documents and communications on FBI Director James Comey’s firing, possible pardons offered to Trump officials, Trump’s finances and foreign governments, “catch-and-kill” payments involving the National Enquirer’s parent company and Trump, Trump campaign contacts with Russians and WikiLeaks and communications between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Dems are demanding responses within two weeks.
Democratic-led investigations are looking to stretch this on for months, with multiple committees seeking a ton information from senior officials in the White House, the Trump campaign and the Trump Organization
Whatever is gathered in their ‘investigation’ is going to be used to try and start an impeachment proceeding, which the Judiciary Committee would lead
Nadler said discussing impeachment
Nadler also claimed that it was “very clear” the President had obstructed justice.
“It’s very clear — 1,100 times he referred to the Mueller investigation as a witch hunt, he tried to — he fired — he tried to protect (former national security adviser Michael) Flynn from being investigated by the FBI,” Nadler said.
“He fired (former FBI Director James) Comey in order to stop the Russian thing, as he told NBC News. … He’s intimidated witnesses, in public.”
Republicans hit back at the new investigation by accusing Democrats of launching a fishing expedition.
“We don’t even know what the Mueller report says, but Democrats are already hedging their bets” Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement. “After recklessly prejudging the president for obstruction, Chairman Nadler is pursuing evidence to back up his conclusion because, as he admits, ‘we don’t have the facts yet.'”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement Monday night.
“Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of Congress,” Sanders said.
“Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling. Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens
She added, “Democrats are harassing the President to distract from their radical agenda of making America a socialist country, killing babies after they’re born, and pushing a ‘green new deal’ that would destroy jobs and bankrupt America. The American people deserve a Congress that works with the President to address serious issues like immigration, healthcare, and infrastructure. The Democrats are more interested in pathetic political games and catering to a radical, leftist base than on producing results for our citizens. The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.”
