‘Keep Those Articles Here’: Top Dem
Demands Quid Pro Quo Before
Sending Impeachment To Senate

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 12/19/2019 3:27:22 PM

Democratic House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn told CNN, if it were up to him, he would withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate indefinitely. Clyburn said he would only send the articles of impeachment to the Senate for if Democrat’s were promised a “fair” trial. By “fair trial,” Clyburn means allowing new witnesses and deliberation to take place in the Senate. But, deliberations and witness testimony is a job meant for the House of Representatives. Clearly, Rep. Adam Schiff and House Democrats bungled their hearings and concluded with extremely weak articles of impeachment(Snip) Now, they want more witnesses called because they didn’t do their job well their first time.

Didn't Swalwell say "if President Trump refuses to send the documents ... in the impeachment inquiry, We can only conclude that you’re guilty"? So if Pelousy doesn't send the document, she must be guilty of an impeachable offense. Ipso facto quid pro quo veni vidi vici and qed, no?

We are so lucky to have Trump as our President. It was always evident that the Democrats would go insane when the silent majority finally put their foot down on their socialism, internationalism, and tyranny. Only Trump is capable of stopping this, and that is why he was elected, and will be re-elected in 2020. Only Trump is able to defeat the Democrats whining fits.

Clyburn ( you twit) , formal delivery of the charges is not necessary for the senate to address them. Laurence Tribe , out of hatred for/of Trump , gave Nancy bad advice. Article I , Section 3 gives full power to the senate. You get nothing. P.S. A fair trial is for the accused, not the accusers.

The Democrat House leaders, including Pelosi and Clyburn, are obsessed with power. They ran roughshod over minority rights in the House because they had the votes. Now they are trying to dictate the actions of the Senate where they have neither the authority nor the votes. Heads I win, tails you lose. In the 2020 election, the people have the opportunity and the obligation to take back the government of the people, by the people and for the people by throwing out Democrats who only want to play power politics. The future of America is at stake.

Interesting. Not only is the President subject to the House, but the Senate is also subject to the House. I did not know that. Such a situation was not described in my civics classes. When did the House become supreme? Who knew? Is the Supreme Court also subject to the House? When did we get a Parliamentary form of government? Was the Constitution abandoned in favor of some new arrangement? The President, if I understand correctly, has not yet been impeached. He will be impeached when (and if) the Bill listing the charges is sent to the Senate. Until then, all we have is a "sense of the House bill". Although the House is not making any sense at the moment. Clearly a lot has happened since I left college in 1962. A revolution took place and I missed the whole thing. Did I miss much?

The democrats can almost be imagined clutching and hiding their papers, like a child withholding something. They pretend it's a really potent scarlet letter but what it really is to them is self-destruction, kryptonite. Heck, Democrats, paper your socialist chambers with it for all we care or shred it or shove it.

Since when did the House become it's own branch of government that was apparently able to dictate to the others what it would accept? The Democrats are showing themselves for what hey truly are....a bunch of power hungry, Trump hating, traitors, who will do anything to keep and gain more power. The entire impeachment scam was done because they hate Pres. Trump, his policies, and the people who voted for him.

Former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have lots of things in common. One, they ran the nation’s key intelligence and investigatory agencies under former President Barack Obama. They were deeply involved in the “Russian collusion” hoax. And they participated in the surveillance of the Trump campaign and transition. Comey and McCabe both signed applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrants requesting surveillance on Trump campaign aide Carter Page. A report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz criticized Comey and McCabe’s FBI for falsehoods and misrepresentations during its investigation of the Donald Trump campaign.

When the Department of Justice inspector general released his report on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse, coverage focused on the top-line findings contained in the executive summary. Then the news cycle whizzed by, leaving many details discussed throughout the 480-page tome unexplored. One significant gap in media coverage concerns the potential complicity of former FBI Director James Comey in the FISA abuse—a possibility the IG report hints at in several spots. The first suggestion that something was amiss with Comey’s conduct came early in Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, when the IG’s office spoke of the methodology underlying the FISA investigation.

Lawyers close to President Donald Trump are exploring whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to temporarily withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate could mean that the president hasn’t actually been impeached. The case is a rhetorical one following Wednesday night’s vote to impeach the president on two articles. The U.S. Constitution grants the House of Representatives full authority over impeachment. But the argument is part of an effort by the White House and Senate Republicans to maximize their leverage as lawmakers debate when and how to conduct a trial on charges that the president abused his power to solicit an investigation into political rival Joe Biden,
