Nancy Pelosi declared war on Donald Trump and the notion that the American people are free to choose their leaders.
The Democrats are going all-in on removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of the 2016 election.
And Nancy Pelosi threw this impeachment haymaker that took Trump totally by surprise.
The only question left is not if Democrats will impeach Donald Trump, but when and on what grounds.
In recent days Democrats have gravitated toward filing articles of impeachment against President Trump for supposedly obstructing Congress.
Democrats are running a kangaroo court behind closed doors where they interview witnesses in secret and deprive Republicans of the right to subpoena documents or call witnesses.
Pelosi and her allies are so confident of their position they think they can stage their coup against President Trump on obstruction of Congress alone.
Lawmakers say White House counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter sent Tuesday night to Speaker Nancy Pelosi — accusing Democrats of running an “invalid” and “illegitimate” impeachment probe — is the final insult in a long-running campaign of obstruction that will likely become a voluminous article of impeachment against Trump.
But they’re not prepared to impeach Trump on obstruction of Congress alone. As they contemplate their impeachment strategy, Democrats say they prefer any obstruction charge to play a supporting, rather than starring, role in their efforts.
“The [White House] letter isn’t an argument, it’s a diatribe. And it reflects what is a clear decision by the White House – obstruct, deny, stonewall,” Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) said in an interview. “I think it would be a basis for proceeding but that doesn’t answer the question: Is it the time to proceed. Is the public there?”
Senior Democratic aides insisted lawmakers are still “finding the facts” and not seriously talking about writing specific articles of impeachment at this time, in part because Democrats are continuing to gather evidence against Trump. But Democrats readily agree that Trump’s blanket stonewalling of their investigations has veered into impeachable territory.
Democrats are hunting around for other grounds for their coup.
That’s because Pelosi knows they can impeach Donald Trump in the House based on what Trump had for breakfast.
It only takes a simple majority vote to ram through articles of impeachment.
The real trick is trying to convince 20 Senate Republicans to take a plunge and join the Democrats in voting to convict the President.
