Democrats to begin formal impeachment inquiry

September 24, 2019

  Calling Donald Trump’s alleged request for Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden’s influence peddling in that country a “betrayal of his oath of office” Nancy Pelosi announced the House will begin a formal impeachment inquiry. Here is more:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats behind closed doors that she is ready for the House to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump for pressuring Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his family.

“It would be my intention with the consent of this caucus … to proceed with an impeachment inquiry,” she said, according to two Democratic sources in the room. “He is asking a foreign government to help him in his campaign, that is a betrayal of his oath of office.”

  This is all based on a whistleblower who came forward a few days ago making this accusation but from what is being reported this whistleblower has no first-hand knowledge of the phone call in question, he is simply going on hearsay. That seems like a flimsy reason to seek impeachment, especially when Donald Trump ordered the release of the transcript of that call to be released tomorrow.

  It certainly does not seem like Donald Trump feels like he did anything wrong and this could eventually come back to haunt the Democrats. There is no doubt in my mind the House will eventually vote to impeach the President but in doing so they might take Joe Biden down with him.

  Of course you have to scramble a few eggs to make an omelette, as an ATF official said of Brian Terry’s death during the Obama years, so this would be acceptable collateral damage to them.

  And it is highly unlikely the Republican controlled Senate will vote to remove Donald Trump from office so there is the chance this could actually galvanize and motivate his base at a time where I feel many of them are feeling dejected and let down. Donald Trump’s base may see impeachment as proof the Democrats are afraid of him and as justification for why they voted for him in the first place.

  With the election a little over a year away I think the Democrats would be better off just riding it out at this point and trying to defeat him at the ballot box but it is on now and it is going to be interesting to see how this plays out.

      It is going to be interesting. I think Trump may have waited until he found out about the inquiry before agreeing to release the transcript so that the Dems would have egg on their faces. We should know soon enough.
