Pelosi issues impeachment statement & McConnell sets up impeachment rules

Speaker Pelosi issued a statement today with the announcement of the Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump. It was as dishonest and abhorrent as one could expect.

“Today, the House Democratic Caucus had an hours-long conversation that was sad, moving, and patriotic. It was a conversation unlike any other because it followed an action unlike any other.

“It is the hope of Members that the President will immediately resign. But if he does not, I have instructed the Rules Committee to be prepared to move forward with Congressman Jamie Raskin’s 25th Amendment legislation and a motion for impeachment. Accordingly, the House will preserve every option – including the 25th Amendment, a motion to impeach or a privileged resolution for impeachment.

“With great respect, our deliberations will continue.”

Media is reporting that the future Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is circulating plans to impeach President Trump.

As all the platforms erase the President and there is a major purge on Twitter of all conservatives or of their followers, the Republicans are doing and saying nothing.

In a memo from McConnell, obtained by The Washington Post, he explains the Senate procedure for impeaching President Trump after he leaves office on January 20.

“It would require the consent of all 100 senators to conduct any business of any kind during the scheduled pro forma sessions prior to January 19, and therefore the consent of all 100 senators to begin acting on any articles of impeachment during those sessions,” the memo states.

The document notes the Senate “can receive a message announcing that the House has impeached the President” while the Senate is in recess, but the Secretary of the Senate wouldn’t notify the chamber of the message until the next regular session, which is scheduled for Jan. 19.

[…]

The Senate impeachment rules state that unless the Senate orders otherwise, once the trial has commenced, the Senate “shall continue in session from day to day (Sundays excepted) … until final judgment shall be rendered,” according to McConnell’s memo.

Will the senators vote to impeach President Trump? I hope they realize they’re done as a party if they do.

It didn’t take Mitch and the other swamp Republicans long to revert and show their true colors. They always liked citizen Donald Trump who donated to their campaigns but were repulsed at even the thought of President Trump because they will only accept their own kind in charge, be it Democrat or Republican, but it sure isn’t an outsider like PRESIDENT Trump nor any other outsider who knows they work for the citizens of the US and not foreign entities or themselves.

There’s isn’t enough time to hold impeachment hearings. But that’s not the point. Dems (and some Repubs) have been trying to get rid of Trump (unsuccessfully) since before he took the Oath of Office. This is all for show, one final gasping attempt in the last few days of Trump’s presidency before Puppet Biden stumbles in to save the day.

If they do this, the backlash will be so great that the only way to stop it will be massive repression of the patriots. Co-conspirator Mitch is setting up rules quite eagerly, though those rules seem to make impeachment impossible. Mitch should be submitting his resignation letter, he is the biggest fool of all in this election coup. Not only has he indicated he supports the coup, he has lost his position due to the very fraud he claims does not exist.

This subversive derelict should be impeached for just being obnoxious and for supporting Marxists and anarchists.
