nancy Pelosi will convene a meeting of the Democratic Caucus at 4:00 PM on Tuesday to decide whether to pursue impeachment against President Trump. I’m lovin’ it. The more times they try impeachment, the more energized conservative voters become and that does not bode well for a party wanting to keep control of the House. Democrats are saying that Trump threatened to withhold funding for the Ukraine if they didn’t investigate Joe Biden. People who have read the transcript say this was not the case and there was no quid pro quo. However, Joe Biden admitted using a one billion dollar loan guaranty to get a Ukrainian prosecutor fired. That prosecutor was investigating his son, Hunter Biden.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will convene the Democratic caucus at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday to discuss whether to impeach President Donald Trump.
The new development, reported by Washington Post congressional correspondent Rachel Bade on Monday evening, comes in the wake of reports late last week that President Trump encouraged Ukrainian officials to re-open inquiries into the business dealings of former president Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
As Breitbart News reported earlier this year, Biden forced out former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin as he was investigating an energy company called Burisma Holdings, which was paying Biden handsomely as a member of its board. The former vice president even boasted to the Council of Foreign Relations last year that he had threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid unless the prosecutor was fired. (He did not tell the audience about his son’s role.) Conservatives claim Biden obstructed justice to protect his son — who enriched himself using his father’s prestige.
It is not clear what law, if any, Trump would have broken by urging the Ukrainian government to re-open the case. The alleged “whistleblower” in the case did not hear his conversations with Ukrainian leaders directly, and the Wall Street Journal has suggested there was no quid pro quo — that Trump did not offer (or withhold) anything in return.
But, as we have seen in the past, it does not matter if President committed a crime or not because the Democrats want to impeach him because he kicks their ass on a regular basis and does no0t fold like a cheap road map the way Republicans do and have done under the leadership of RINOs Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. To them that is sufficient grounds for impeachment.
