Heh - this is going down in history

| No Comments

The Democrats are stepping on their pee-pee big-time. They are going to own this when the history books are written.
From The Daily Caller:

House Democrats Vote To Open Impeachment Inquiry
The House of Representatives officially voted to open an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on Thursday, following months of speculation.

The vote passed 232-196, mostly along party lines, with nearly all Democrats voting to begin an impeachment inquiry, and all Republicans sticking behind the president. Democratic Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota broke ranks to vote against the resolution, while Independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan voted to begin the impeachment inquiry.

It is not over by any means. The foxes are running the hen house - from Breitbart:

Democrat Alcee Hastings, Who Was Impeached and Removed, Makes Impeachment Rules
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) is the second-ranking Democrat on the House Rules Committee, which is setting the rules for the “impeachment inquiry” into President Donald Trump. Hastings himself was impeached and removed from office in 1989 — one of only eight federal officials, all of whom have been judges, so be so relieved of their duties.

Hastings was removed for bribery, one of the causes enumerated in the Constitution’s Impeachment Clause (Article II, Section 4): “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

As the New York Times reported in 1989:

In a solemn two-hour proceeding, the Senate today removed Federal District Judge Alcee L. Hastings from the bench by convicting him of eight impeachment articles, including one charging that he had conspired to obtain a $150,000 bribe.

Judge Hastings sat silently facing the senators as Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia called out on the first article, ”Senators, how say you, Is the respondent guilty or not guilty?”

The vote was 69 to 26, providing five votes more than the two-thirds of those present that were needed to convict. The first article accused the judge of conspiracy. Conviction on any single article was enough to remove the judge from office, and he left shortly after the vote.

Running low on popcorn. This is wonderful fun. One last one from someone at our National Security Council
From Sara Carter:

NSC Official To Schiff: Nothing Illegal Took Place In Trump Call
Tim Morrison, a top official with the National Security Council, told lawmakers Thursday that he did not believe “anything illegal was discussed during the conversation” between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to the opening statement reviewed by SaraACarter.com.

Morrison, who is the outgoing senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council and a deputy assistant to the president, told lawmakers that the transcript of the call was accurate but he contended that some of the details provided by other witnesses did not coincide with his regarding certain aspects of the the Ukrainian issue. House intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, D-CA, who has been criticized for his continued anti-Trump partisan rhetoric by Rebublicans, has been pushing for Trump’s impeachment

The Democrats are beclowning themselves and they do not see it. They are so wrapped up in their fever dreams and their derangement that they do not see what the rest of us are seeing - their corruption.
