Flurry of House Dems back impeachment inquiry, amid bombshell reports Trump withheld Ukraine aid
Is the Teflon wearing off of The Donald?? Is he pressing his luck?? Is he shooting himself in the foot?? Yes to all of the above, IFFF the accusations concerning Ukraine are true.
A slew of key swing-district Democrats late Monday threw their support en masse behind opening a formal impeachment inquiry, as The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal reported in the evening that President Trump personally ordered acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to freeze nearly $400M in military aid to Ukraine just days before he pressed the new Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Where I come from, BACKDOOR actions like this are called DIRT POOL.
So many times in the history of politics have we seen some foolish person that is almost guaranteed a shoe-in, shoot themselves in the foot because they are paranoid or used poor judgement.
Tricky Dick had the election sewed up, but he was paranoid about losing so he pulled a Water-Gate.
IFFF these allegations are true, PDT did not have to worry about Biden’s kid. If the kid was out of line, that should not have had any reflection on his old man. Soooo, why the shakedown??
The BIG IF remains:
However, earlier Monday, a person familiar with the situation told Fox News that the whistleblower in question did not have “firsthand knowledge” of Trump’s conversation with Zelensky.
The source said that it was made clear in the complaint itself that the whistleblower did not have direct knowledge of the July phone call.
Fox News has learned that typically, multiple U.S. officials would be on such calls with the president, but this would indicate the whistleblower was not one of those people. It’s unclear if the individual read a transcript of the call, heard about it in conversation, or learned of it another way.
Based on the definition Wikipedia gives; this action of PDT, IFF factual is an impeachable offence.
Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official. … In the United States, for example, impeachment at the federal level is limited to those who may have committed “Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”.
Round and around goes the impeachment merry-go-round, with the Trump haters continuing on there mission to lynch the president. I am a firm believer that all people, no matter what their status in life is have to be accountable to the law.
Accusation are only accusations until they are proven; then and only then do they turn into facts. Let us have the facts come out (if that is ever possible in politics) and let the cards fall where they may.
All I can say; the last 3 years in politics in the US of A have been simply pathetic. The time, money and effort wasted on the politicians playing I’M GONNA GET YOU has been a sacrilege on all of them.
