Skip to comments.Trump demands 'fast' impeachment in House
Posted on 12/05/2019 5:39:17 AM PST by maggief
President Trump said Thursday that if House Democrats are going to impeachment him they should do it "now" and "fast" so he can have a "fair" trial in the Republican-controlled Senate.
In a series of tweets, Trump also said he wanted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and the Bidens to testify at a Senate trial.
"The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy," Trump tweeted.
"Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair ... .trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business. We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is. I was elected to 'Clean the Swamp,' and thats what I am doing!" the president wrote.

This is great, it puts Democrats in a box. Either get on with impeachment and punt it over to the Senate, where they lose control of the narrative and a full trial can occur, or they have to abandon the impeachment process entirely.
$hit or get off the pot. The way I read the Prez.
I think the whole thing will collapse on Monday when the IG report comes out.
Impeachement is dead, Jim.
A Senate trial will not be the impeachment of the president but a full court press against corruption in government. That will be worth watching.
Trump to Schiff and Nadler: up hours - go ahead and give me what I want.
LOL! Like Democrats would ever do if.
I hope you are right. I don’t believe the IG will recommend any prosecutions. If he does AG Barr will not push them through. Losing faith quickly in the justice system.
Getting ahead of the story ....
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will discuss the status of impeachment inquiry into President Trump at 9 a.m., her office announced early Thursday morning.
The Rats will drag this out as long as possible. That’s the real plan. They know that impeachment won’t pass the Senate but the constant drumbeat of “Trump’s a crook” is worth as much to these craven animals.
“I think the whole thing will collapse on Monday when the IG report comes out.”
Pelosi wants to get a vote before the IG report comes out or she want the impeachment activities to be going on in the house to distract from the IG report and actions in the senate by Graham and committee. She is between a rock and a hard place.
I don’t have a ton of faith in Horowitz but I have great faith in Barr.
He is not some career politician. He came in from the outside to do a job and then be done. He doesn’t have to suck up to anyone because this is his last job.
I had no faith in Issa, Gowdy or Sessions. I was blasted on here many times over the years because I said they were all useless politicians.
I trust Barr.
This chatter about a censure vote is coming up again so I suspect Nancy STILL doesn’t have the votes.
There is one more option. Censure. If they don’t impeach the Donks will likely pull a last minute “behind closed doors” vote for censure, rather than allowing it to go to the Senate.
Maybe Pelosi will surprise everybody at this press conference and come out and yell. WE GONNA IMPEACH THE MOTHER Fer.
I don’t trust ANY politician. They are all part of the uniparty and their only plan is to cover their asses.
They are all corrupt and can’t rat on each other because the whole thing would collapse.
Trump and Barr are very successful outsiders who came in only to kick some heads. I trust them both completely.
The only reason for the Democrats to drag this out is that they dont have the votes to pass it. Trump knows this.
Impeachement is dead, Jim.
Agreed but, it’s been dead for a long time. Instead of retreating back under their rocks they come up with something else, a new charge, a new tactic, anything. Don’t expect the Democrats to give up or go away simply because of a report from someone they disdain. They hate us and plan to be in our faces until the bitter end.
