Dead on arrival in the Senate.
Would a VETO be considered "Obstruction of Congress?
Both of these charges seem soft as cotton puffs.
Did Aunt Nancy tell them to make it super killable so they can stop the internal bleeding?
Is no one going to point out that their entire 2018 campaign was about impeaching the mother!@#@er!... yet, these charges are from the last 5 months?
Wonder if the president will insist on a trial. Hes not scared to face corrupt politicians. Same rules as the house had. He could expose everything the left has done. Maybe the left will face recalls when people understand the left was attempting a coup.
Every American citizen should do their best every day to obstruct congress.
Russia, Russia, Russia....oh wait.....Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine
No such thing a Obstruction of Congress. That is a completely fraudulent charge with utterly no merit what so ever. This PDF is merely a pathetic attempt to conflate Obstruction of Justice into a completely made up new charge of Obstruction of Congress.
The Executive is a Co Equal Branch of Govt. Basically the Democrats are trying to manufacture a scheme that Congress has some sort of mythical super authority over our Government.
Based on this ridiculous claim they could impeach Supreme Court Justices any time they over turned a Congressional act. By ruling against the act of Congress the Justices would be guilty of this mythical Obstruction of Congress
So-they want to impeach him (obstructing Congress) for the same exact thing Obama did on nine separate occasions? Thats rich.
The Democrats Cleavon Little as Sheriff Bart moment, “excuse me while I whip this out”.
I’m surprised Pelosi didn’t faint.
Trump should counter-Impeach:
Abuse of power: Congress making charges up out of whole cloth with no evidence solely to attempt to sway an upcoming election, and
Obstruction of The Executive Branch: Not allowing the Executive Branch to present evidence, or cross examine fake witnesses in the Congressional hearings.
Im serious. He really should Counter-Impeach.
They are in a rush to do this before Christmas. It’s such a farce but tragic for our Republic.
I hope they are annihilated next year in the 2020 election.
The Rats are anti-Republic scum.
There are two charges:
1) Abuse of office by asking Ukraine to assist in investigations. Something specifically allowed by treaty.
2) Obstruction of Congress for the President exerting Executive Privilege and not cooperating with the above. The concept of Executive Privilege has been upheld by SCOTUS in US vs Nixon. This issue has not yet to worked it’s way through the court system. So not only is this second charge based on a non-crime of above, it has not yet been resolved via the courts.
I am of the opinion that if the House passes the articles of Impeachment, that the Senate should receive the articles and “take up” the articles and then send the articles to the Senate Judiciary committee for review ad the house process was highly irregular an perhaps in violation of the House rules. Once there, a simple response of ... there is no crime here (for the above reasons) and table the matter until such time as the House is able to articulate an actual crime.
For the details of the abuse of office statue:
25 CFR § 11.448 - Abuse of office.
§ 11.448 Abuse of office.
A person acting or purporting to act in an official capacity or taking advantage of such actual or purported capacity commits a misdemeanor if, knowing that his or her conduct is illegal, he or she:
(a) Subjects another to arrest, detention, search, seizure, mistreatment, dispossession, assessment, lien or other infringement of personal or property rights; or
(b) Denies or impedes another in the exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege, power or immunity.
Several misses from the above:
ref the main part of knowingly - the existing treaty specifically allows the request for investigations.
under (a) no person was involved. Sovereign countries are not persons. Further “delay of benefits” is NOT listed.
under (b) since Ukraine did receive the authorized payment, there is no violation here either.
Walls are closing in....beginning of the end...we got it.
