A U.S. Representative from New York took to the floor of the House of Representatives to accuse President Donald J. Trump of treason for his alleged “Russian collusion” in the 2016 election.
“I rise today to make it clear that treason is not a laughing matter,” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said in February of 2018. “It is a serious crime, embedded in the Constitution, punishable by death.”
Now that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s official report has been turned over to Attorney General William Barr – and not one Trump staffer or associate has been charged with a crime related to collusion – we know for sure that such allegations made irresponsibly by the likes of Jeffries were totally bogus.
“Is it treason for a presidential campaign to meet with a hostile foreign to sellout our democracy and rig the election?” he asked rhetorically. “Is it treason for a presidential campaign to meet with Russian spies who promised information that was negative about a political opponent and then fail to report that meeting to law enforcement officials? Is it treason for your former National Security Advisor to be a Russian asset, sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin?”
Today, Mueller’s report has answered all of these questions unequivocally. Either what Jeffries suggested never happened, or the answer is no. And for an elected official to suggest otherwise is reckless.
There are many others in elected office and media who must face a reckoning for their behavior over the past three years.
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
