Impeachment Inquisition: Dems Divert From FBI FISA Scandal

House Judiciary Committee set to vote on articles of impeachment, sending them to full House.

The report on the FBI’s FISA abuse from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz is damning. In fact, the evidence showing that biased individuals within the FBI essentially engaged in election meddling in 2016 against Donald Trump is so damning that the Democrats are timing their partisan impeachment charade to work as a distraction. And their Leftmedia cohorts are more than willing to do their part in ignoring the more serious story. Yet the Democrats’ impeachment gambit still must be covered — not because of its legitimacy (it lacks any) but to expose just how far Democrats are willing to go in their purely partisan efforts to see Trump removed from office.

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Jerry Nadler (D-NY), held phase one of its mark-up process. And it was once again more of the same Democrat sham that has been on display ever since Adam Schiff’s orchestrated “whistleblower” complaint was first reported.

Nadler opened the proceedings by making a ridiculous claim: “We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems when the president threatens the very integrity of that election.” Really? Just hours earlier on the other side of the Capitol building, the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from IG Horowitz about how members of the deep state within Barack Obama’s Justice Department engaged in an illegal spying operation against the Trump campaign. Americans should be worried — not about Trump’s supposed “threat” but over the very real problem of unelected bureaucrats using their power to meddle in an election.

However, Nadler’s statement couldn’t have made it more clear what the Democrats’ real motivation for impeachment has been the entire time. In their articles of impeachment, Democrats offer no actual crime, nor even an unconstitutional action on Trump’s part, despite their impassioned rhetoric claiming otherwise. Their argument boils down to this: Trump is dangerous because we don’t like him, and we can’t trust the American people to judge if he’s fit for office, so we must take him out ourselves. This is what is classically referred to as a coup.

Today, the committee is expected to vote to move impeachment to the floor of the House, where Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to hold a vote next week before Congress breaks for the holidays. So, it’ll be another week before this fraudulent charade is finally out of Democrat hands. That in itself is a Christmas gift we can all look forward to.
