No Job For The Faint Hearted

It takes a majority of House members to pass an article of impeachment. Even if the Democratic-led House were to pass impeachment articles, the GOP-controlled Senate would then vote to acquit or convict.

A California congressman is introducing articles of impeachment against President Trump on Thursday — the first day of the new Democratic majority in the House.

Rep. Brad Sherman is reintroducing the impeachment articles that he first filed in 2017 with Democratic co-sponsor Rep. Al Green of Texas, a spokesman said.

“He will be introducing the same articles he introduced last year once the House is in session this afternoon,” Sherman spokesman Shane Seaver told Fox News.

Sherman told the Los Angeles Times there “is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress.”

“Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country,” the Democrat said.

In 2017, the impeachment measure authored by Sherman and Green accused Trump of obstruction of justice over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey. The resolution says Trump “prevented, obstructed and impeded” the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn by “threatening and then terminating” Comey.

That effort died, with Republicans holding the majority in the House. Still, even though Democrats retake control of the House on Thursday, party leaders have not committed to pursuing impeachment.

“We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report,” Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview with NBC News’ “Today” on Thursday, referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. “We shouldn’t be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn’t avoid impeachment for a political reason. We have to see.”

Really? Day two! These two slime balls couldn’t even wait for a week? Palestinians elected them? They might as well have. Stupid gullible voters. The masks couldn’t have come off any faster for these evil twins. And they don’t even care that Americans know. Those that are paying attention. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was joined by political activist Linda Sarsour during her swearing-in ceremony on as a congresswoman on Thursday in Washington, DC. On the same day, a map in her new congressional office was photographed with an attached sticky note identifying Israel as “Palestine.”

Quran (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie. America’s first Palestinian-American congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was sworn into office using a Quran. I believe the 4th or 5th Muslim to do so. Her ‘oath to America’ (Quran (16:106), in the heart of the kafir’s homeland no less. She was soon after fetted at a joyously delirious victory party at which she couldn’t contain herself. It was cause célèbre. Jubilation. Unsurprisingly she managed to find time to spew her vial hatred for the duly elected POTUS of her ‘adopted country’. “We’re gonna impeach… Read more »

I tried watching Hannity but his fear of democrats and miscreants (I repeat myself) makes me turn him off. The democrats can do anything they want but the fact is Nancy is senile and Chuck doesn’t matter because he is in the minority. The facts are the demoncraps can try what ever they want. They don’t have the votes to get anything done.

The Holidays are over, the new congress is sworn in and now the real fun begins.
For the better part of the last two years, the Trump administration has toyed with the opposition which was thoroughly rejected after 24 years of globalist, ‘America Last’ rule. The table was set; the powers that be and their allies in the media had the people prepared.

Or so they thought.
