The latest, and current attempt by Washington Democrats to impeach President Donald J. Trump is a farce. And it may very well be illegal.
The Democrats current “Ah Ha – We got ya now scandal” is all based on smoke and mirrors and more lies. Now they think they’ve got Trump on some “Quid-Pro-Quo” attempt to extort and pressure the Ukrainian President into inventing and developing crimes perpetrated by former Vice-President Joe Biden. But once again these fools have over played their hand. In their rush to judgment to impeach Donald Trump they have not only caused irreparable harm and damage to America but they may have also violated the Constitution in the process, (as if they cared about that at all).
What they have done is forced the President to release the transcripts of an official White House phone call to a foreign leader, and they have done so based on the “say-so” of an unidentified “whistle blower” that was NOT a part of that phone call and who did NOT have first-hand knowledge of what that conversation was all about. By forcing the President to release the transcripts of that phone conversation they have severely damaged the credibility and sanctity of not only this President but all US Presidents in the future. No world leader will ever feel secure when having “Private – official” conversations with the White House and the President of the United States. That damage to the credibility and sanctity of the office of the President of the USA may never be repaired or regained.
However in addition to the damage done to America’s credibility, in their zest and rush to impeach President Trump they have also neglected to follow the Constitutional requirements for the process of impeachment. Now I am NOT an attorney but if my understanding is even close the process of impeaching a President requires a vote of at least 2/3rds of the members of the House of Representatives in order to even legally open formal inquiries and investigations into any potential accusations of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”. The Democrats have by-passed that requirement and instead have opted to formally open those proceedings with less than half of the representatives agreeing to it, and they never put forth any vote for the members to vote on, instead they simply made a “declaration” that the formal process would be opened. They by-passed the requirement of any formal vote of the members of the house, changed the rules, and simply announced the impeachment proceedings were now open and formal.
This is not only a violation of the Rules of Congress and the requirements under the Constitution, but it is also shades of and reminiscent of Nazi Germany and the Bolshevik Russian revolution by the Communists.
Now given the current state of world affairs, and the President’s current position of negotiations and placing sanctions against Russia, one could easily expect Russia to retaliate and try to push back against those sanctions. By forcing the President into this current impeachment proceedings and this battle the Democrats have also provided aid, comfort, and support for Russia. If they persist in this attempt of impeachment against President Donald Trump the Democrats could very well be committing an act of treason themselves.
But then again – These are the Democrats, so no one is supposed to care or object.
Here is a list of the members of the House of representatives who approve of this impeachment attempt;
If these numbers are correct, and if my information holds true about how many votes are required to formally open these proceedings, then the Democrats have indeed violated the rules of the US Constitution.
Current balance of power in the House;
Democrats = 235,
Republicans = 198,
Independents = 1
2/3rd of the House would require 290 votes in favor of opening these proceedings, but this page shows only 218, with 17 members saying - "No Not now".
In other words according to the numbers on this page the Democrats didn't even get 100% of their own members.
Rooster you are correct they bypassed the way the constitution demands impeachment begin WITH THE SPEAKER CALLING A VOTE IN THE HOUSE, PELOSI DID NOT. IT IS NOT DONE BY COMMITTEE. ALSO THEY DO NOT HAVE THE VOTES PELOSI KNOWS THAT SO SHE IS ALLOWING SCHIFF TO CONDUCT WHATEVER HE WANTS NO MATTER WHAT.
LUCKILY WE HAVE SOME GOOD REPUBLICANS WHO KNOW THAT THIS IS A FARCE LIKE JORDAN, MEADOWS, DOUG COLLINS AND OTHERS WHO COME OUT AND SAY SO. THIS IS NOT A REAL IMPEACHMENT AS IS NORMALLY DONE DEMS DO NOT GIVE A RATS BEHIND HOWEVER. THEY ARE DESPERATE.
ALSO LET US RECALL THAT THE WHISTLEBLOWER IS A CIA OPERATIVE , AND WHO IN THE WH GAVE HIM ANY INFO; AND ALSO WE HAVE TO ASK ABOUT HIS LAWYER A PERSON W/TIES TO HILLARY AND SCHUMER. This is no more than another political hit job it is going to die quick b/c many Dems in red states cannot vote for this .
law and truth and the us constitution mean zero to these people they want Trump gone at any cost the hell w/what Biden did and as referring to China along w/Kerry and his grandson made billions.
this clown show will go nowhere
oh and yes ALL OF THE PRES PHONE CALLS NEED TO BE KEPT PRIVATE FOR NATL SECURITY BUT THE DEMS DO NOT CARE. RUIN HIM AT ALL COST THE COUNTRY BE DAMNED
Pelosi says the Democrats don't care if this impeachment costs them the house in 2020, They have to move forward "To SAVE the country"
Question really is - Save the Country from WHO Nancy ??? From the American people !!???
The REAL Answer is who is going to save this country from this Democrat / "Communist" "Fundamental Transformation of America"?????
ANSWER: Donald J. Trump AND the American people.
The problem with this impeachment proceedings is that they started it without the required votes in the House, Next they will try to declare Trump IS impeached again without the required 2/3 vote; Then they will try the same thing in the Senate.
And THAT will start the war.
That's what they want and they intend to start a civil war one way or another, by any means necessary.
It doesn't matter that several million people might be killed,,,, to these Democrats that's a plus, they WANT to "thin-out" the population anyway. What better way to do it than to get us all to kill each other to do it for them ??
You might want to think about getting ready for a real war folks, It looks like these Crazy Democrats have decided they can't wait until the 2020 elections in fear that Trump will actually be re-elected.
They can't take that chance so they think they can remove him now, - as soon as possible, To hell with legal or Constitutional, just remove him. Pencil-next has gone crazy.
