Skip to comments.Trump Impeachment 2.0: Historic Fight Spurs New Probes And Clashes Even After Trial
Posted on 02/07/2020 6:29:17 AM PST by blam
The Senate impeachment trial of President Trump may have ended with an acquittal, but ongoing legal battles and talk of future subpoenas hint that the drama between Congress and the White House is far from over.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., was dismissive of Trump's acquittal, calling it "virtually valueless" and the result of "one of the largest cover-ups in the history of our nation." And remarks from multiple House Democrats show that they are still looking for more information they can use against the president.
Meanwhile, the president delivered celebratory remarks with supporters on Thursday as his White House declared vindication, maintaining as he did throughout the impeachment inquiry and trial, that he "did nothing wrong."
But one matter could result in new developments as early as Friday, with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals expected to issue a ruling in the near future regarding whether the House Judiciary Committee can compel the testimony of former White House Counsel Don McGahn.
In a court filing for that case, House Democrats revealed that McGahn's testimony related to information in the Special Counsel's Russia report could even be used for new articles of impeachment.
"If McGahns testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly---including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment, the committee's December brief stated, noting that they still have ongoing impeachment investigations.

My give a sh!t got up and went.
The Democrats have nothing. Period.
"He added, I think it is also an attempt for the president to tell the troops heres the fighting line now. Were going after everybody that went after us. Were going to fight to the death. We are going to get them. It is about righteous moral indignation. Our family has been abused. I have been abused. The constitution has been abused. We have to get these people. We have now to November to do it. This is to me is a cri de guerre, a fight to war. He is calling on his troops to fight to the death against the Democrats and the American bureaucracy itself. This is the starkest fight Ive seen declared by any American politician.
Pelosi had to twists arms to get the last vote. Another impeachment won’t pass.
Let them. The American people are sick of it. Democrats should stop digging but they wont.
The only way to make them stop for good is to take away their House majority from them in November.
Earlier this week, I predicted the next impeachment inquiry would start today, although I did allow that it might not be this Friday, but next.
The day is young...
They won’t do it again thus cycle. They aren’t THAT stupid. Even they know it would gaurentee the loss of the house.
The process is the punishment.
Having done nothing in the past year to address the People’s concerns and the needs of America, the democrats plan is to continue collecting their salaries and doing nothing to promote the good of the country.
Yeah, that’s a plan. /s
“If McGahns testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly-—including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment, the committee’s December brief stated, noting that they still have ongoing impeachment investigations.
By all means, go with Impeachment 2.0, the Microsoft Bob version.
“They arent THAT stupid.”
Oh ye of little faith!
They're going to lose the House no matter what. They have NO other issue to run on, all they can do is attempt to tarnish and de-legitimize a Republican House, Senate and White House.
“one of the largest cover-ups in the history of our nation.”
The MSM will continue to lead the fight against the conservatives.
The Dem candidates suck and cannot beat Trump with their own Demo-Socialist programs and open borders. So the Dems are trying to bring Trumps popularity numbers down by continuing harassments, subpoenas to testify for Trump underlings like McGann and Bolton and impeachments. To create fear, uncertainty and doubt in the minds of Trump voters.
Dems trying to dirty up Trump so much that Trump voters have reasons to stay home on election day.
Wont happen. Theyve tried everything and nothing has worked.
Democrats dont understand Trump and his voters. We will vote for him again.
..can be very telling.
A VERY possible reason why Eric CIAramella is being hidden & protected...
OBAMA ordered a massacre of 100 innocent people
Eric Ciaramella is the KEY this is why the DEEP STATE protects him
In Feb 2014 there was a Coup d’Etat in Ukraine. a violent Coup. There was a massacre in the main square of the capital, Kiev. 100 people were killed.
It was Barack Obama that ordered that massacre. it was Obama that ordered 100 people to be BRUTALLY killed in Ukraine.
The SNIPERS were professional mercenaries. they were hired and paid to do that job. Their assigned job was to kill about 100 people.
Those snipers were hired and paid by ERIC CIARAMELLA,
under orders by Barack OBAMA.
