Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has announced the House will vote on a resolution this week that "affirms the ongoing, existing investigation" and "establishes the procedure" for her impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt. According to a FOX News article, this sham vote will take place on Thursday. As of early this morning, the House Committee on Rules hadn't even given the resolution a name.
Democrats have been holding secretive, closed-door, non-transparent impeachment meetings on Capitol Hill for weeks. When Pelosi formally announced the start of the impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt last month, the White House attacked the process as "highly partisan," "illegitimate" and "unconstitutional." Yesterday, she ridiculously blamed the Trump administration as the reason why the resolution is needed:
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), the twice-failed Republican presidential candidate, has been brazen and unyielding in criticism of President Trump. He made his disdain for the President known long before joining the Senate in January of this year.
In a March 2016 speech, Romney called then-candidate Trump "a phony, a fraud" who was "playing members of the American public for suckers." He added, "If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished." Mr. Trump responded by calling the former Republican presidential nominee a "choke artist."Read more
President Trump lashed out at his GOP critics on Wednesday by tweeting:
The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!
While Grassfire thinks "human scum" is a bit harsh and even inappropriate, we agree that every Republican in Congress needs to demand an end to the impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt against the President. Too many GOP lawmakers are "waffling" in their support for our Commander-in-Chief and refusing to consider what's really at stake.
While some House Republicans are literally storming the gates to protest the Democrats' impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt, other Republicans in Congress are sitting on their hands, refusing to take a stand for our President. Some, like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), are actively and openly criticizing our Commander-in-Chief. The failed 2012 Republican presidential nominee called Mr. Trump's July phone call with Ukraine's president "troubling in the extreme ... deeply troubling."
The truth is that impeachment CANNOT happen without Republican support. Democrats simply don't have the numbers to pull off their illegal coup. But if more members of the GOP would stop "waffling" and call this impeachment inquiry what it really is -- a Witch Hunt -- President Trump could get back to the business of "Making America Great Again."Read more
House Republicans are fighting back against the Democrats' impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt. Yesterday afternoon, a group of about two dozen GOP lawmakers stormed a closed-door, Democrat-only meeting on Capitol Hill. The protest disrupted an interview House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and other lawmakers were holding with a Defense Department official in a secure room called a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility.
Republicans are fed up with the secrecy surrounding the inquiry and put their frustration on full display yesterday. An Associated Press report quoted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, who said: "The [House] members have just had it, and they want to be able to see and represent their constituents and find out what’s going on."Read more
CNN reports that House Democrats wanted to hold an impeachment vote against President Trump by Thanksgiving. But now, votes "could slip closer to the end of the year." Here's what an unnamed Democrat told CNN about the end of the investigation:
"I think it's more like between Thanksgiving and Christmas. ... After that, it's a strategic decision about when to bring it to the floor."Read more
As expected, House Democrats defeated H. Res. 604 last night. The Republican-backed bill would have officially condemned and censured House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for lying and fabricating details in the impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt against President Trump. CBS News reports that the House vote of 218-185 to "table" the legislation "fell completely along party lines":
The censure resolution was introduced last week by GOP Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. It cited several reasons Schiff should be censured, including his recitation of an embellished account of the call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine during a congressional hearing ...
Schiff has defended himself by saying his embellished account of the call was "meant to be at least part in parody." He has also conceded he "should have been much more clear" during an appearance on MSNBC in September when he said his committee had "not spoken directly to the whistleblower."
As the self-appointed leader of the Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment campaign against President Trump, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been accused of lying and fabricating details in an effort to increase support for removing our duly elected Commander-in-Chief from office. (That's why the President refers to him as "Shifty Schiff" in his tweets.)
House Resolution 604 would condemn and censure Schiff for reading a fictional phone call between Mr. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into the record. Schiff also is suspected of lying about having NOT spoken to the “whistleblower,” whose second-hand account of the actual July phone call between the two leaders started this second Witch Hunt against the President.Read more
President Trump is punching back against the impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt that seeks to remove him from office. At a political rally in Texas yesterday, he attacked Democrats by telling a Dallas crowd:
"Don't kid yourself. They are destroying this country, but we will never let it happen. ... The more America achieves, the more hateful and enraged these crazy Democrats become."
America's Commander-in-Chief also said "the survival of American democracy itself" is at stake in next year's election. The Associated Press reports:
The president peppered his speech with bracing claims that Democrats – "leftists, socialists, and globalists" – are trying to "overthrow the results" of the 2016 election.
GALLUP: 52% SUPPORT REMOVAL
Immediately, Grassfire staff wondered, "How could that be?" Our recent "IMPEACH?" QuickPoll showed that 98% of our team members reject the idea of removing President Trump from office. While we can find comfort in knowing that Gallup and so many other pollsters were dead wrong in 2016, the possibility that a majority of Americans may favor impeachment IS concerning.
