House Democrats have finally begun unveiling their laughable articles of Impeachment, but after three years of Russia, collusion, bribery, and Mueller claims, the charges don’t include anything about Russia, quids pro quo, bribery, or collusion.
These farcical articles of impeachment show how the Democrats have constantly moved the goal posts time and again in this circus of an investigation.
The Democrats articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump cover only his contacts with Ukraine’s president and charge him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
“Today, in the service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Judiciary Committee is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the President of the United States of committing high crimes and misdemeanors,” Democrat Gerald Nadler said prior to announcing the articles.
“It is an impeachable offense for a president to use the powers of his office to seek a personal benefit,” Nadler insisted.
Again, all the charges that the Democrats have hurled at Trump for three years are nowhere to be seen in these articles.
There is no charge that Trump bribed Ukraine — a charge that the Democrats have been making for three months — there is no mention of collusion, or Russia, or mentions of the Mueller report, or any of the claims the Democrats have made for years, now.
The two narrow charges come on the heels of second-hand allegations brought forth in a whistleblower complaint by a partisan CIA officer, who alleged President Trump attempted to pressure the leader of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in exchange for U.S. military aid.
Also present during the announcement on Capitol Hill were House committee chairs Nadler, Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and Richard Neal (D-MA).
