Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has shocked the nation by completely diving into impeachment proceedings.
Instead of reluctantly going along with the movement as she previously portrayed, she is now taking initiative and has abruptly thrown precedent aside. Look no further than her recent exchange with House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for proof.
Believe it or not, the House of Representatives is not comprised entirely of Democrats. There is a sizable Republican contingent.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy reached out to Pelosi about if there would be a House vote on impeachment proceedings.
In the three impeachment proceedings that have happened (Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton) the full House has voted to authorize an investigation. Pelosi brazenly bucked tradition by making it clear that it will not be happening this time around.
Not only will there not be a House vote on authorizing an impeachment inquiry, but there may also be other serious departures from precedent.
Alarmingly, Pelosi wasn’t clear on if House Republicans would be allowed the ability to subpoena witnesses. Most concerning is the fact that Pelosi was also unclear if the inquiry would be led by the House Judiciary Committee.
That last condition is required by existing House rules, but Democrats may be so desperate for an impeachment that they will try to throw out the rules with the precedent.
Abuse of Power
The Democrats push for impeachment has progressed from fringe liberal hysteria to a very real threat. It’s unbelievable that a sitting president is facing impeachment over a story that was factually disproven.
Democrats know that President Trump will beat any candidate he faces in 2020, so impeaching him is their last shot at removing him from office.
The use of a tool that is meant to remove a President for real crimes and abuses of power is being used to win an election. Americans need to wake up and realize Democrats care about nothing but power. They will stop at nothing to destroy our Republic and they will go to any length to destroy their opposition.
Perhaps it is time to ask when their actions begin to cross from dishonest political games to treasonous attacks on our country.
