House Dems have yet to put the idea of impeaching the president to a vote. Right now the MSM and Dems are just trying to stir the pot hoping they find the nonexistent evidence they need to impeach Trump. Dem Rep Elijah Cummings is following this same line of thought as he is acting on his own without voting to try and gain access to classified documents. He has the gall to say that the White House is being uncooperative when the Dems have no reason to be trying to oust the president.
“House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., subpoenaed the White House on Friday for documents related to the House impeachment investigation after administration officials failed to comply with repeated requests for the materials.
“We deeply regret that President Trump has put us — and the nation — in this position, but his actions have left us with no choice but to issue this subpoena,” the three chairmen wrote in a letter addressed to acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney Friday.”
But Republicans saw the issue much differently.
“GOP members of the House Oversight panel wrote in a letter to Cummings that he should convene a committee business meeting before issuing a subpoena to allow members to debate and vote on the subpoena.
“You decided to issue this subpoena without consulting Republicans and without allowing Members to debate the terms of the subpoena,” the letter said. “Your memorandum cherry-picks and misstates information to propagate a misleading narrative about the President’s actions. We object strongly to the issuance of this subpoena and your stated reasons for issuing it.”
The White House also called out the crazed actions of the House Dems.
“The White House dismissed the move as political posturing. “This subpoena changes nothing – just more document requests, wasted time, and taxpayer dollars that will ultimately show the President did nothing wrong,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement Friday evening. “The Do Nothing Democrats can continue with their kangaroo court while the President and his Administration will continue to work on behalf of the American people.”
The Dems are trying to make it seem like they are in the right but they are bypassing the rules of the House in their attempt to go after Trump. They know they have nothing on the president. If they did, you can bet your bottom dollar they would have already voted to impeach him.
