Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are about to jump off a cliff on impeachment.
Democrats are all set to take their final step toward trying to remove President Trump from office.
But then Nancy Pelosi made one impeachment confession that no one saw coming.
Trying to sprint to the finish line to wrap up impeachment before the voting starts in the 2020 Democrat presidential primaries, Democrats are set to introduce two articles of impeachment against the President.
Democrats are claiming Congress must impeach and remove the President from office because of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”
The Washington Post reported:
Democrats are expected to unveil two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday that will focus on abuse of power and obstructing Congress, and would be voted on by the full House next week, according to three officials familiar with the matter.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) met with Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and other committee chairmen Monday night after a nine-hour hearing in which a Democratic counsel laid out the party’s case against Trump. The three officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private talks, cautioned that the plan had not been finalized.
Leaving a meeting with Pelosi, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.) told reporters that he and the chairmen of other House committees would announce specific articles at a news conference at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
But nowhere in their articles of impeachment is the initial crime Democrats claimed was the basis for the impeachment inquiry – bribery.
That focus-group-tested line for impeachment disappeared as the Democrats’ case to prove the allegation proved laughable.
Democrats are now accusing the President of committing impeachable offenses and not even claiming Donald Trump violated the law.
