Could Donald Trump be Impeached? - 09-25-2019, 05:22 AM

The horror of it all. Does Donald like Russians or Ukrainians better?



The White House is set to release a transcript Wednesday of President Trump's scrutinized call this summer with the new Ukrainian president. But that likely won't quell the growing movement toward impeachment in Congress.

The July 25 call is the subject of a whistleblower complaint from within the intelligence community, stirring questions about whether Trump pressured a foreign government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who could be his 2020 presidential opponent.

Trump promised on Tuesday that the transcript would be a "complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine." Trump, who has said it was a "totally appropriate call," could speak further about it Wednesday from the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

But reports that Trump threatened to withhold money to Ukraine unless the government launched an inquiry into Biden and his son Hunter, who had once sat on the board of an energy company there, were the breaking point for many congressional Democrats to begin moving toward impeachment.

Trump Vows To Release Ukraine Transcript Amid Impeachment Crescendo

Calling his actions a "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she is launching an impeachment inquiry. She had resisted pressure from more liberal members of her caucus who have been pushing for impeachment.

Pelosi Announces Formal Impeachment Inquiry Into President Trump

"The president must be held accountable," Pelosi said. "No one is above the law."

Democratic committee chairs have already been launching investigations into the president ever since they took control of Congress in January, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass. — one of the six chairmen who will be part of the process — said Pelosi's decision is "constructing an umbrella for the six chairmen to proceed now on the basis of a formal inquiry" and allowing Democrats to move forward "in a unified way."

Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., who chairs the House Rules Committee, said there aren't plans for a full House vote right now, but that the swing in support — notably from more moderate members and ones in swing districts — shows that "the president has crossed a line. And you're seeing a consensus growing that he's unfit for office."

Biden Blasts Trump As A President Who 'Believes He Is Above The Law'
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., downplayed Pelosi's announcement, noting that Democratic committees have long been probing Trump.

"She cannot unilaterally decide we're in an impeachment inquiry," McCarthy said. "What she said today made no difference to what's been going on. It's no different than what [House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry] Nadler's been trying to do."

Who In The House Is Calling For Impeachment?

Impeachment — the formal charging of wrongdoing against a president — could pass in a Democrat-controlled House. Just two presidents have been impeached in history: Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Richard Nixon was staring down an impeachment vote amid the Watergate scandal but resigned before formal impeachment articles were brought forward.

However, no president has ever been convicted in the Senate and subsequently removed from office. And such a feat would be tough in the GOP-controlled Senate, where 67 votes would be required.

But while most Senate Republicans have remained stalwart behind Trump, there were signs Tuesday that even they want answers, as they agreed by unanimous consent that the intelligence community whistleblower should be allowed to bring his or her information to the intelligence committee.

On Tuesday evening, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said it is consulting with the executive branch on how to connect the whistleblower with congressional intelligence committees "in a manner consistent with appropriate security practices."

If you were to have asked Trump to write a script of the perfect day yesterday, I don't know if he could've written it much better than what has actually taken place. His talk at the UN was about as perfect as perfect can be. To add icing to the cake, what he has hoped would happen for many months, the Democrats would do (start impeachment proceedings) happened on the same day as his perfect speech at the UN.

The Democrats starting an impeachment inquiry, will set things in order, that will virtually insure that Trump is reelected. Additionally, this is going to put immense pressure on Democrats, who have constituents, that will make them pay for supporting impeachment, which will lead to a high number of Democrat Congressmen/women losing their seats.

Not only that happening, but also the fact that Pelosi has bowed to the squad, further cements to the US voter, how badly the Democrats are confused and in upheaval. If Trump and Melania didn't have sex today, I predict that Trump still had an orgasm, from the events of today!

How much better could today have been?

Why should I "apologize" for speaking the truth. "Laddy"?

This bolded part of your statement is the media propagated narrative meant to stir/prepare the base of the D'rat party, and the uninformed potential swing vote/s for 2020. The Democrats/Pelosi have already been conducting an informal impeachment inquiry! Essentially, they used the media to drive a flash-bang, that basically means, "Hold the press! We're going to continue doing exactly what we've already been doing, which is...an informal inquiry." Procedurally speaking, until they announce a formal vote to proceed with articles of impeachment in the House, they are doing eggsactly, jack $hit, but for trying to stir their deranged voter base, and any mindless stragglers they may capture. Hopefully at some point, the sheep base would/will tire of being Charlie Brown, while Lucy continues yanking the football, and watching Chuck fall flat on his arse...yet again. I ain't holding my breath.

This is a test of the Pelosi Impeachment System. This is only a test.

However if Republicans back off from the President, it might not be just a test.

If the Dembo's would back away from the crack pipe, and support the President, imagine the domestic improvements achievable. Oh nevermind, welcome to Fantasy Island...again.
