Republicans Bash Pelosi For Buckling To Anti-Trump Mob
The House Dems finally decided that they would follow protocol and make their Trump impeachment inquiry official. But many Republicans think this is just a way for Dems to extend out their slanderous witch hunt and they are calling out Pelosi for flipping on the issue. There still doesn’t seem to be any legitimate reason to impeach the president.
“Republican congressional leaders tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday after Democrats pushed through formal rules for the impeachment inquiry on the House floor, pointedly asking what changed since she declared in March that she’s opposed to the process absent a presidential offense of “overwhelming and bipartisan” concern.
“We believe in the rule of law. But unfortunately, in Nancy’s House, we do not,” House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy said at a press conference after the vote on Thursday.
McCarthy referenced a March interview with The Washington Post Magazine in which Pelosi declared her opposition to impeachment, saying it’s “so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”
McCarthy asked: “What has changed since March?”
The Dems don’t have an answer for that, but Pelosi did comment on about making the impeachment Inquiry official.
“This is not any cause for any glee or comfort. This is something that is very solemn … we had to gather so much information to take us to this next step,” Pelosi said on the floor Thursday, explaining her current stance. “Nobody … comes to Congress to impeach the president of the United States, unless his actions are jeopardizing our honoring our oath of office.”
But Republicans argued that while she said in March any impeachment push should be bipartisan, the only bipartisan vote Thursday was to oppose the resolution, as two Democrats broke ranks in opposition. No Republicans supported it.
“In all the hearings, there’s nothing compelling, nothing overwhelming, so the speaker should follow her own words and that bipartisan vote on that floor and end the sham that has been putting the country through this nightmare,” McCarthy said.
“Other top Republicans also went after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is essentially leading the probe right now.
“For one man to turn this country upside down, to have this vote today, our Founding Fathers warned about this in the Federalist Papers,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said. “That a future Congress would base impeachment, at some point in time, would base it on partisan politics.”
“Sadly, today in this chamber, their worst fears have been realized,” McCaul said.”
This whole impeachment inquiry looks like they are trying to find a way to attack Trump’s character. As they must see how their candidates don’t stand any real chance against Trump in 2020.
