Pelosi: House to Draft Impeachment Charges Against President Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that she was advising the House Judiciary Committee as well as chairmen of other government committees to proceed with moving forward to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump, saying “the president leaves us no choice but to act.”

“Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and our heart full of love for America, today, I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said reporting live from the Capitol. The Speaker added that the facts surrounding the president’s alleged wrongdoing involving Ukraine “are uncontested.”

“The president abused his power for his own personal, political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military aid and crucial Oval Office meeting in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival,” said Pelosi, also saying that Trump’s actions “seriously violated the Constitution.”

“Our democracy is what’s at stake,” Pelosi continued. “The president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit.”

In order to protect the nation from that possibility, Pelosi said, the founders “created a Constitutional remedy to protect against the dangerous or corrupt leader — impeachment.”

Pelosi did not mention a deadline for committees to write the articles of impeachment or when a House vote would occur. Members in attendance at a private Democratic caucus meeting on Wednesday indicated that the vote would take place before the holiday recess. In fact, one member said they were told to “not make plans” for December 21 or 22.

Like much of the Democrat’s impeachment activities, we have not been told the specific details about whether the articles would encompass oversight investigations by the Democrats that were already conducted prior to the Ukraine phone call, but some lawmakers have considered including “findings” from the Mueller report that they want to be included.

After Pelosi spoke, the president criticized her remarks.

“The Do Nothing, Radical Left Democrats have just announced that they are going to seek to Impeach me over NOTHING. They already gave up on the ridiculous Mueller ‘stuff,’ so now they hang their hats on two totally appropriate (perfect) phone calls with the Ukrainian President…” he wrote in a post on his social media account.

Trump added: “Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she ‘prays for the President.’ I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the House speaker and Democrats “should be ashamed. Trump has done nothing but lead our country — resulting in a booming economy, more jobs & a stronger military, to name just a few of his major accomplishments,” Grisham posted on her Twitter account. “We look forward to a fair trial in the Senate.”

Rep. Doug Collins, (R-GA), high ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, posted that Nadler told him this week to provide him with his witness list.

“But Pelosi’s press conference seemed to indicate we’re moving straight to articles of impeachment. Judiciary has jurisdiction over articles of impeachment, but does the chairman even know what’s going on?”

The next impeachment hearing by The House Judiciary Committee began on Monday at 9 a.m. ET. The panel will see presentations from Democratic and GOP counsels to the Intelligence Committee on the evidence collected in the impeachment inquiry.

    • Any normal person in their right mind, who would vote for Binden, must be someone who is completely from another planet.
      Binder has never been to intelligent and now, he is really losing it….he can’t remember what State he is campaigning in, and can’t remember what he is talking about. Binden is continuously making a fool out of himself…it’s long past due for him to just get off the campaign trail.

      Binden is a Liar and a Losser. He and his son must be INVESTIGATED, IF FOUND GUILTY, THEY MUST GO TO JAIL.

      GOD BLESS HISTORIC PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHO WILL WIN WIN IN 2020.

  1. We the American People spoke once to drain the swamp! Make America Great Again! Bring back our jobs! And the respect we deserve for the help We the people give to the rest of the world! The only reason they want to impeach OUR President is because he is keeping his word and pulled the plug! He is bringing good living wage jobs back home. The Man has titanium for a spine and I have no doubt Our Founding Fathers would approve! They fought and worked so that America would Not have a swamp for a Government!

  5. I find it strange that the Democrats are attacking the President for doing something that was the responsibility of their own party. It doesn’t matter that former Vice President Biden was not yet the candidate of the Democrat Party; but, was merely a potential candidate of the Democrat Party as is every Congressional Democrat in Washington. Any charge of possible corruption, especially of impeachable level, required full examination, explanation and if necessary disqualification. America deserves to know the character, political platform and political history of any potential candidate campaigning for elected office.
    The attitude and actions of those pledging loyalty to the Democrat Party is alarming. Their deliberate choice to deflect, dissuade, and attempt a cover-up is alarming and self defeating for the Democrat Party as a whole. The impeachment charade has served best to expose the hypocrisy of the party leaders and the feigned attempt of a legitimate impeachment inquiry. The Democrat impeachment train very early on, already a break-neck speed began to cascade down a very slippery slope only to discover, no matter insufficient evidence it had to rely on hearsay, opinion and conjecture…and now too late they discover an inept engineer forgot to test the brakes and their train is with ever-increasing speed headed for a crash at the end off this ride.

  6. This is so political bias against the President Trump he deserves that er stand up and by him so that he can finish and build on what he has accomplished for America thus far. My other hope is that the election is a total disaster for the entire Democratic Party. The other item is that I couldn’t believe that Maxine Waters was center stage with Pelosi Nadler Schiff the woman who called for assassination of Trump the confronting anywhere and everywhere any Republican or Trump supporter and the Squad have said we will impeach the mother f. If God is good and He is President Trump will be elected again will be protected from harm and be triumphant over his enemies in Congress Senate and rage deep state will be destroyed forever. Sad day for our country what a disgrace.

  7. This country has a long….long….way to go to rid the destructive liberal disease that is,and that has been affecting OUR once great country! These destructive liberals atheists (Devils) constantly continue to PUSH there agenda (immoral beliefs) upon us ! “We” ALL must FIGHT AND GET INVOLVED TO EXTERMINATE THIS LIBERAL DEMOCRAT DISEASE…before it dooms US ALL of the radical JIM Jones thinking theory!
    So we whom have the FAITH & Common sense to fight to eliminate this very dangerous intrusive liberal disease MUST BEGIN NOW!!! For if not ..we ALL unfortunately know what Cancer does and can do eventually !
    God bless America ! And god bless our Great President Donald P Trump

  8. STOP TALKING & START ARRESTING, HANDCUFFING & PUBLICALLY LEADING THE CORRUPT POLITICIANS TO PRISON. LET’S SEE IF THEY CAN CONTINUE TO STEAL MONEY FROM THE CITIZENS WHILE THEY ARE BEHIND BARS!!!
