Republicans are sick of the deceitful Dems and their latest impeachment ploy. They are telling Dems to pull the trigger already and vote on it. But Dems are claiming they have no need to. Which seems to translate to we got nothing.
“Republicans are daring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a formal impeachment vote against President Donald Trump, new Republican National Committee talking points obtained by CNN indicate.
“Among the talking points is the point that Democrats are refusing to hold an impeachment inquiry vote on the House floor, a point made in recent days from high-profile Republican lawmakers. The full House voted to authorize impeachment inquiries for Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.”
“Pelosi reiterated that defense in a letter responding to a similar request by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday afternoon. She also said she hopes McCarthy and other GOP members “share our commitment to following the facts, upholding the Constitution, protecting our national security, and defending the integrity of our elections at such a serious moment in our nation’s history.”
RNC spokesman Steve Guest told CNN in a statement Friday afternoon, “As we have reiterated multiple times in multiple ways, President Trump did nothing wrong.”
Guest is not alone as many in the Senate feel the same way.
“Impeachment over this? What a nothing (non-quid pro quo) burger. Democrats have lost their minds when it comes to President Trump,” [Lindsey Graham] said in a September statement in reaction to a summary the White House released of the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.”
““I’ve read the summary of the call. If this is the ‘launching point’ for House Democrats’ impeachment process, they’ve already overplayed their hand,” [Mitch McConnell] told Politico last month. “It’s clear there is no quid pro quo that the Democrats were desperately praying for.”
“Democrats have been searching for any reason to impeach President Trump since his inauguration because they couldn’t accept the results of the 2016 election.”
“This all reeks of hypocrisy considering former Vice President Joe Biden has already said he used his office and taxpayer dollars to pressure Ukraine’s president into taking specific law enforcement actions that directly benefited his son. The attention on unverified reports instead of an on-record admission shows why Americans are so distrustful of politicians and the media,” Senator Grassley stated.
But somehow House Dems think they know better. If we use the Dem’s reaction to the Mueller Report as a standard then this is another big nothing. And from what the Media is releasing that seems to be the case.
