House Votes to Impeach President Trump 12/18/19 ...President Trump Impeached on Two Charges

1. President Trump Impeached on Two Charges

Not a single Republican broke ranks and supported impeachment. Trump is the third president to be impeached by the House—following Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 (NYTimes). On the article charging abuse of power, the vote was 230-197; on charge of obstruction, the vote was 229-198. Tusli Gabbard (D-HI) voted present on both charges. Two Democrats voted no on both charges—Collin Peterson (MN) and Jeff Van Drew (NJ). A third, Jared Golden (ME) voted yes on abuse and no on obstruction. Each of these three are from districts where Trump won (NYTimes). On the charges: WSJ.

Don’t Pretend This Impeachment Is About the Constitution

David Harsanyi: Impeaching the president isn’t a Constitutional imperative. Nor is it a patriotic obligation. Democrats, who today ludicrously wrap themselves in the patina of “rule of law,” know this well. Not very long ago, they were rationalizing and cheerleading unprecedented abuses of power under the Obama administration. And they’ll be cheerleading for more abuses of the Constitution the next time they win the White House (NationalReview). It’s really about hatred, argues Victor Davis Hanson: When a party, an ideological movement, and an entire political agenda are based on hatred, people and policies become warped. The left-wing loathing of Trump has now tainted almost every Democrat’s agenda and unhinged most of the party’s major players (AmericanGreatness). Jonathan Turley: The Democrats acted like impulsive holiday shoppers. What’s most disturbing is that the Democrats know the current record of evidence falls well short of a viable case for conviction in the Senate. Nevertheless, they opted to move the impeachment by Christmas rather than build a stronger case for a vote in early 2020 (LATimes).

Pelosi Once Resisted Impeachment; Now It Shapes Her Legacy

And it’s not at all clear she’ll be proud of it. From the Los Angeles Times: impeachment will stand as a key part of her legacy, her colleagues agree — along with becoming the country’s first female speaker of the House and shepherding the Affordable Care Act into law (Los Angeles Times). From Politico: Pelosi has been the public face of the Democrats’ impeachment probe, a position that she had been long reluctant to embrace (Politico). From the New York Times: Ms. Pelosi reserved the first speaking slot for herself. She took the floor on Wednesday dressed in a dark suit, a nod to what she has long said would be a solemn day, and a carefully chosen accessory: a gold brooch fashioned as the mace of the House of Representatives, also known as the speaker’s mace (New York Times).

As Impeachment Shifts to Senate, Majority Leader McConnell Points to Short Trial

With Hugh Hewitt, McConnell said: “As soon as 51 senators decide they’ve heard enough and want to move on, that’s what’ll happen.” Hugh was discussing whether it ought to be a short trial or a long one. More complete context from McConnell: You get to a point here where enough is enough, if we go down the witness path, yeah, we’d probably call people that we’d like to hear from…. This could go on endlessly. And what we know is how, we know how it’s going to end right now. We know the President’s not going to be removed from office. So the question is just how long do we want this to be foisted on the American people? And what I think we ought to do is listen to the arguments, have a period of written questions, and then vote on the two articles of impeachment. And in an impeachment proceeding in the Senate, 51 senators decide everything. It’s a simple majority situation. And as soon as 51 senators decide they’ve heard enough and want to move on, that’s what’ll happen (Hugh Hewitt).

5.
Is Pelosi Going Wobbly on Handing Impeachment to the Senate?
Politico: In recent weeks, some legal scholars have suggested Speaker Nancy Pelosi could consider refusing to transmit articles of impeachment … where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declared he is coordinating trial strategy with the White House (Politico).

6.
Democrats Have Long Known They Were Going to Impeach Trump
They just weren’t sure what for. Some helpful candor on a point we’ve heard repeatedly, this time from a political reporter at an elite media outlet. Aaron Blake from the Washington Post: Democrats have known for a while that they were going to impeach President Trump; they just needed to figure out exactly what for (WPost).

7.
While the House Was Impeaching, the Senate Was Confirming Judges
13 were slated for confirmation (TheHill), including Matthew Walden McFarland U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Ohio (Twitter).

Trump Defies Democrats by Holding Massive Rally as Impeachment Is Finalized: 'I'm Having a Good Time!'

President Donald Trump said at a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, Wednesday night that he was “having a good time” even as he took aim at the Democrats’ unprecedented vote to impeach him while charging him with no crime.

Thinking back on Richard Nixon, the last Republican to face impeachment, Trump said, “I just see it as a very dark era.”

By contrast, Democrats now “don’t even have any crime, this is the first impeachment where there’s no crime!”

“I don’t know about you, but I’m having a good time, it’s crazy,” he added, as thousands of his supporters in the important swing state loudly cheered.

“It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached,” the president said. “The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong … and we have tremendous support in the Republican Party like we’ve never had before.”

Adam Schiff Sets Eyes on Pence – Tells MSNBC He’s “Acquired Evidence” from Vice President’s Office on Ukrainian Investigation

Adam Schiff went on with Rachel Maddow last night to push their Trump-Ukraine conspiracy — something that was completely debunked everywhere after three weeks of testimony except on CNN, MSNBC and the fake news media.

During their conversation Schiff announced he was going after Vice President Mike Pence next and may have “acquired evidence” that the Vice President is hiding information in the House Ukrainian investigation.

Adam Schiff: Well, we have acquired a piece of evidence, classified by Jennifer Williams, something she alluded to in her open testimony. Then going back and looking through her records she found other information that was pertinent to that phone call that we asked her about and made that submission. There is nothing that is classified in the document but the vice president’s office has said they are going to classify… It is not proper to classify something because it would be embarrassing or incriminating. And that submission does shed light on the vice president’s knowledge. We think the American people should see it.

Jennifer Williams testified before Congress in November and offered nothing. She worked for Vice President Mike Pence. So now Schiff has Democrats thinking Williams holds the key to Pence’s impeachment.

1. Nancy Pelosi was apparently advised by leftwing Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe to delay sending the impeachment to the Senate. So she’s unilaterally sitting on the impeachment. This is another brazen unconstitutional act.

2. Here’s what Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans must do in response: The Senate has the sole power under the Constitution to adjudicate an impeachment. Therefore, Pelosi is attempting to obstruct the Senate’s power to act on its constitutional authority.

3. McConnell should immediately put an end to this and declare the impeachment null and void as the speaker has failed to complete the impeachment process by timely sending it to the Senate for adjudication.

4. McConnell has no less authority to unilaterally make such a decision than Pelosi does to withhold the administrative notification of an impeachment to the Senate either indefinitely or w/ conditions. Her effort to cripple the presidency & blackmail the Senate must be defeated.
