House Dems Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Democrats have been begging Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment ever since the Capitol was breached last week.

Pence has refused to honor their request, so Democrats are now taking matters into their own hands.

Early Monday afternoon, it was announced that articles of impeachment were introduced into the House.

Impeachment 2.0

Just how much water this current case will hold is up for debate.

Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley has been critical of Trump’s speech on Wednesday, but even he does not believe that is enough to warrant an impeachment.

This, however, will not be about actual evidence but rather about purging Trump from the political world.

With Schumer taking over as Senate Majority Leader when the next session begins, you better believe Dems will pull out all the stops to make sure this impeachment makes it through the Senate.

The articles were brought to the floor by Reps. David Cicilline (R.I.), Ted Lieu (Calif.), Jamie Raskin (Md.), and Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.).

The impeachment article states, “Incited by President Trump, members of the crowd he had addressed, in an attempt to, among other objectives, interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election, unlawfully breached and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts.”

This measure will easily pass in the House, that is not in question.

However, the Senate will be an even split when it takes up the impeachment, but a two-thirds majority will still be needed to make the impeachment official.

We know there are about a half-dozen or so Republicans that will vote in favor of the impeachment, but that would still leave Democrats far short of the number needed to pass the measure.

This is a very dangerous move by Democrats because many experts believe the risk far outweighs the reward here.

If Dems are successful, they will have purged Trump and will never have to face him again.

If, however, they are unsuccessful, does it help Trump gain momentum he has lost?

Does this energize his supporters to rally behind him for another presidential run?

There is also the question as to how this plays out for Republicans in both the House and Senate that vote to impeach Trump and their future within the party and how Trump supporters will react when they come up for re-election.

Lots of questions, unfortunately, we have no answers right now.

Like you, we have to sit back and watch this start to play out before we can even begin to speculate on the ramifications of a second impeachment for Trump.

An IG report found that DHS Sec. nominee Alejandro Mayorkas fostered an atmosphere of “favoritism and special access” on projects connected to major Dems as a DHS deputy sec. under Obama.

“[F]avoritism” to Dems...sounds like a return to Lois Lerner-style governance.
