Trump has been impeached by the House; that cannot be changed. Democrats closely followed the rules and guidelines in Article Two of the Constitution and impeached Donald John Trump for violating his mandate and breaking his oath of office.
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, was originally opposed to impeachment, until Trump’s actions left her no choice. The following was her original statement.
“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”
The next step in the process of removing a sitting president from office is to send the documents to the senate. Moscow Mitch McConnell is required by the Constitution to hold a trial; the results of which will decide Trump’s fate.
America’s biggest traitor has already decided to acquit his fuhrer. I, and most politicos do not believe it is possible to obtain the 67 votes necessary to complete the process.
Speaker Pelosi has not forwarded the documents to the senate. Trump assumed all along that Pelosi would halt the process. He believed that she would prevent his impeachment for political reasons. Trump underestimated the thought process of a strong woman. He is now the third president to be impeached. Pelosi is considering an action similar to a “pocket veto.” She sees no reason to waste time and money on a trial. Moscow Mitch and Lindsey Graham have already offered their verdicts, and the cowards in the Republican Party will certainly follow their lead. She will have more political advantage exposing Trump and his ‘do nothing party’ by keeping the impeachment documents in control of the House.
Personally, I agree with this tactic. I doubt that a single Republican would do the right thing and vote for Trump’s removal from the White House. Trump’s legacy would be sealed. He would become the only president to run for reelection after being convicted of Constitutional violations in the House of Representatives.
Under Trump’s illegitimate rule there have been many firsts; none of them good for our nation. No president in history has spent such an enormous amount of time away from the Oval Office. His average “workday” is less than three hours. He has accomplished nothing in nearly three years in office. At least a dozen actions by your illegitimate president have been declared unconstitutional by federal courts. His close association with Putin, bin Salman, Erdogan, and Kim Jong-un, and open disrespect for the leaders of our closest allies conflict with America’s goals and principles.
The only question remaining is ‘will you vote for yourself and those you love on November 3, 2020, or will you reelect a criminal who is not loyal to his country, and refuses to serve all Americans?’ The answer is clear; vote for a president who will do her or his job and take back your country from a party which supports fascist ambitions.
