Senate Democrats introduce articles of impeachment on Trump
It is clear Senate Democrats are never going to accept President Trump. Their priorities are to stay in power and enforce Socialism on the US not protecting the country. According to Newsweek a group of Democrats has filed articles of impeachment on President Trump yet the same could care less that the Obama administration and Clinton’s were involved in selling 20% of the US uranium supply to our mortal enemy Russia.
The move was led by Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee, who first declared his intention to initiate the impeachment process following Trump’s controversial “both sides” remarks in response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Cohen is joined in his efforts by five colleagues, including fellow Judiciary Committee Democrat Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois, who announced his decision to join the push two weeks ago. Also at the press conference were Representatives Adriano Espaillat of New York and Al Green of Texas. The latter is one of the president’s loudest critics, and he has previously filed his own articles of impeachment.
The others who have signed on to the effort are Representatives Marcia Fudge of Ohio and John Yarmuth of Kentucky, and Cohen said there were more in the House who had indicated that they would be willing to join the effort soon.
“We have taken this action because of great concern for our country and our Constitution, our national security and our democracy,” Cohen said. “We believe President Trump has violated the Constitution.”
Five articles of impeachment will be introduced, alleging obstruction of justice, violations of both the foreign and domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press.
The move is unlikely to pick up much steam as Republicans control both houses. Not sure how RINO’s Susan Collins, John McCain and Lisa Murkowski would vote.
A Republican National Committee spokesman strongly criticized Democrats’ push for impeachment.
“House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with,” Michael Ahrens said. “Republicans are focused on issues the middle class actually cares about, like cutting taxes and growing the economy.”
It is very clear Democrats, Susan Collins and definitely John McCain have no intention of supporting the Trump agenda. The hope would be that they would uphold the oath of office and investigate Uranium One. That is probably not going to happen.
