WITCH HUNT: Congressional Democrats—Joined by Former GOP Traitor Justin Amash—Approve Impeachment Resolution
Congressional Democrats, aided by turncoat Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), approved a formal resolution in favor of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump earlier today.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the ridiculous proclamation that she is leading the charge for impeachment to protect the Constitution, a document which she has worked her entire life in public office to undermine.
Pelosi: "This Constitution is the blueprint for our republic—and not a monarchy.
"But when we have a president who says Article Two says I can do whatever I want, that is in defiance of the separation of powers. That's not what our Constitution says." https://t.co/OzrDAzDZ9Y pic.twitter.com/m5SeQoj7FA

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) questioned the efforts of the Democrats, believing that they are putting their partisan witch hunt ahead of working to solve problems on behalf of the American people.
“We are not working for the American people, those items would resemble the achievements of a productive Congress, a Congress that truly works for the people. But you know what this Congress counts? This Congress records more subpoenas than laws, that’s the legacy,” McCarthy said, referring to important budget and policy issues that are being neglected by House Democrats to instead pursue impeachment.
“This impeachment is not only an attempt to undo the last election, it is an attempt to influence the next one as well,” he added.
The resolution ultimately passed by a 232-196 margin. Every Congressional Republican voted against the measure, but the House Democrats did not achieve the unanimity they desired. Reps. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) voted against the resolution and refused to go along with their party’s desperate overreach.
The White House is pushing back against the frenzied push against the President.
“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense. That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-American.”
Rep. Amash, who left his party and stabbed his constituents in the back to oppose the President, joined the Democrats to vote in favor of the measure.
We swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath to support and defend Donald Trump’s abuse of the office of the presidency.

This president will be in power for only a short time, but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name. To my Republican colleagues: Step outside your media and social bubble. History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous, and false defenses of this man.

Amash is considering a presidential run next year in an attempt to peel away some of President Trump’s support in a key battleground state of Michigan, similar to what CIA operative Evan McMullin tried to do in Utah unsuccessfully during the 2016 election.
“The counsel of Gandalf was not founded on foreknowledge of safety, for himself or for others,” said Aragorn. “There are some things that it is better to begin than to refuse, even though the end may be dark.”

“Most Americans, in my view, fall within the sphere of libertarianism or classical liberalism. They might not call themselves libertarian, they might not call themselves classical liberals, but they fall within that sphere and could support a party that presents those ideas. And so I think that there is room for a third party presenting those, that presenting that vision,” Amash said to Vox.
Although the Democrats and the Benedict Arnold of our age are pushing for impeachment, it is not likely to go anywhere considering the effort is underpinned by flimsy charges regarding Trump’s phone call with Ukraine. The entire situation may help Trump’s re-election chances, as the public realizes that the deep state and congressional swamp really are out to sabotage the President.
