Now That Trump Is Impeached--More Trickery Follows

President Trump was impeached last night by a partisan, radical, far-Left Democrat Party. Under the guise of holding "hearings" to learn the "facts," the Democrats pulled off the scheme that was birthed even before President Trump was Inaugurated.

Now a group of House Democrats, led by Oregon's Rep. Earl Blumenauer, is pushing Speaker Pelosi to "withhold the articles of impeachment" passed last night, which would potentially delay a Senate trial for months.


Be informed.

The road to impeach a President with whom the Left both disagrees and hates has been long and winding.

On November 8, 2018, Molly Hemingway wrote in The Federalist that "Judiciary Committee member (now chairman) Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh...and to impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia."

Nadler was riding a train from New York to DC for a 2-day planning session with his staff and Judiciary staff. While traveling he was having vigorous phone conversations, which were overheard in their entirety by a passenger sitting close by. The conversations involved several different people, regarding how to remove Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, and Trump from the Oval Office.

Molly was the passenger. He should have recognized her---but didn't.

Here are some of the bullet points from Nadler's conversation:

  • He discussed the possible presidential candidates for the 2020 election.
  • He lamented the thriving economy---it may cause Democrats to lose working-class people.
  • He discussed two ways or paths to impeach both Justice Kavanaugh and President Trump.
  • One way was to go after the FBI for how they handled the investigation into unsubstantiated claims he sexually assaulted women. The other plan or path was to go after Kavanaugh because there "is real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury."
  • Concern was expressed that if they went after Kavanaugh, it would bring up Clarence Thomas and that would hurt Joe Biden's candidacy.
  • Nadler told his cohort on the phone that the push to impeach Trump would begin with "holding him accountable"--not using the word "impeach"---accountability is more palatable than impeachment---initially.

There's more. You can read the entire article.

On February 6, 2017, TIME Magazine reported: "President Trump hasn't been in office a month, but Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) already thinks it's fair to consider impeachment."

In an interview with Teen Vogue the same day, Waters outlined a bill she had introduced to Congress, calling for an investigation into the President's ties to Russia. She said if there are connections "he should be impeached."

Later that same day she posted a video on Twitter explaining how Democrats can truly combat the agenda of the Trump administration, given their minority status in Congress.

While the far-Left radicals would have you believe that it was an accumulation of failures and misdeeds on the part of Trump that led to his impeachment, it is actually the Left's relentless pursuit of every angle imaginable to bring down a President with whom they disagree politically and principally.

A group of Democrat Representatives are now calling for Pelosi to "hold the articles of impeachment in the House" to delay the Senate trial for months.

The Washington Post is reporting that "A group of Democrats is pushing Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders to withhold the articles of impeachment against President Trump, potentially delaying a Senate trial for months."

WAPO says:
"The notion of impeaching Trump but holding the articles in the House has gained traction among some on the political Left as a way of potentially forcing Senate Leader Mitch McConnell to conduct a trial on more favorable to Democrats."

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) says he's been talking to his colleagues and has about 36 of them considering backing such a move.

Blumenauer's legal advice is coming from a Harvard Law School professor, Laurence H. Tribe, who wrote in a recent Washington Post op-ed,
"The public has a right to observe a meaningful trial rather than simply learn that the result is a verdict of not guilty."

The Republicans are scoffing at the idea, saying it won't make any difference. We'll see how it plays out.

Personally, I don't think they can pull it off. And if they do, it will further hurt the already damaged far-Left party.

The impact of this impeachment.

The impact of this infamous act of impeaching a President with no specific charges will certainly make an impact on our communities, our country, and our government.

Yesterday afternoon Rep, Jerry Nadler (D-NY) accused Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX) of "echoing Russian propaganda." Gohmert shouted sarcastically back at Nadler:
"You said it was about this terrible Russia collusion. When that fell through, it was about emoluments, it's about bribery, it's about extortion. It's changed, but one thing hasn't changed and that's the intent to impeach this President. It's always been there."

The division in our country will deepen and widen because this contest is not merely about politics---it's about a worldview. A belief system. A secular progressive worldview vs. a biblical worldview.

This miscarriage of justice and fairness has turned Washington DC---the most powerful capital in the world--upside down. On its head. Which is what many who voted for Trump hoped would happen---just not this way.

There seems to be a general consensus among conservatives and evangelical Christians that this miscarriage of justice has already served to rally, and galvanize the right.

The 2020 election may be far worse than the Left even imagined. Some are suggesting Trump may win by a landslide.

While Congress impeached, the President rallied in Michigan.

While the United States House of Representatives impeached President Trump, President Trump was holding a "Merry Christmas" rally in Battle Creek, Michigan.

The crowd roared as President Trump announced his impeachment, saying, "Somehow I don't fell impeached," giving a list of accomplishments including the booming economy.

He told the capacity crowd and the thousands outside the arena who couldn't get in, "We're here to celebrate the miracle of Christmas, the greatness of America and the Glory of God."

Gallup published a new survey yesterday which shows Trump's job approval is up 6 points since the impeachment charade began. Republicans have not blinked in their support of him,with nearly 90% of Republicans planning to vote for him.

I'm reminded of the biblical story of Joseph---his brothers threw him in a hole, then decided to hand him over to a traveling caravan so they would never have to deal with him again. Years later, because of famine, the brothers were forced to come to Egypt for food, only to discover that the man from whom they must seek help was none other than "brother" Joseph.

Joseph told them, "You meant it for evil, but God intended it for good."

God is in control.
