Impeachment Round 2: Nadler picks up where Schiff leaves off, schedules new hearings after Thanksgiving
(TNS) Despite the fact that support for impeaching President Donald Trump is tanking in one survey after another, House Democrats are on a mission: They want the president to go down in history as having been impeached, regardless of whether he is convicted or not (and he won’t be).
So now that the Schiff Show is over, it’s House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s turn. The New York Democrat announced Tuesday that his committee will begin considering articles of impeachment next week following the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
What Schiff, Nadler, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are really telling members of their caucus in vulnerable districts is this: “Our districts are safe, and we don’t really care what happens to you.” For that reason alone, the 31 or so Democrats who reside in districts President Trump won ought to get a grip, get ahold of Pelosi and Nadler, and tell them in no uncertain terms they don’t appreciate leadership throwing them to the wolves.
But they won’t. And Nadler’s committee with its Democrat majority will almost certainly return three or four articles of impeachment against Trump.
For doing absolutely nothing wrong except beating the most corrupt, criminally investigated presidential nominee in the history of the republic, Hillary Clinton.
But the Judiciary Committee will nevertheless pretend it has evidence. They’ll use a letter to members from House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff claiming that he’s got “overwhelming evidence” that the president did something corrupt in his dealings with Ukraine (when, in fact, it was Joe Biden who threatened a quid pro quo).
Schiff, you recall, claimed over and over he had “overwhelming evidence” that Trump and Russia “colluded” to “steal the 2016 election” — when he didn’t.
The Committee intends this hearing to serve as an opportunity to discuss the historical and constitutional basic of impeachment, as well as the Framers’ intent and understanding of terms like ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ We expect to discuss the constitutional framework through which the House may analyze the evidence gathered in the present inquiry,” Nader wrote in a letter to the president.
“We will also discuss whether your alleged actions warrant the House’s exercising its authority to adopt article of impeachment,” Nadler wrote in a letter to President Trump.
“If you would like to participate in the hearing, please provide the Committee with notice as soon as possible. But no later than by 6:00 pm on December 1, 2019. By that time, I ask that you also indicate who will act as your counsel for these proceedings,” he continued.
“While we invite you to this hearing, we remind you that if you continue to refuse to make witnesses and documents available to the committee of jurisdiction…’the chair shall have the discretion to impose appropriate remedies,’” Nadler added.
What contemptible human beings, these Democrats. They truly are the Garbage Party.
If there is any good to come out of this charade, however, it is this: If Democrats pull the trigger on this impeachment hoax, they will almost guarantee the president’s reelection next year. And maybe even Republican re-control of the House.
