The democratic wing of Congress seems befuddled, to say the least.
On one hand, their constituency is clamoring for impeachment proceedings to begin against Donald Trump. Voters, celebrities, and prominent members of the democratic party are forcefully demanding that Nancy Pelosi and her minions get this ball rolling.
On the other hand, Congressional leaders on the left side of the aisle are obstinate in their opposition to such a move. They believe that they don’t yet have the evidence necessary to make the charges stick, and are cautioning against a hasty move that could impact the 2020 election.
Just two days after Robert Mueller appeared before them to testify on the subject of Russian “collusion”, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler made a statement regarding the march toward impeachment that sought to satiate the rabid radical leftists calling for the President’s head.
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee said Friday they are proceeding with what they called an “impeachment investigation,” as they insisted former Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered damning testimony against President Trump in this week’s hearing despite concerns from many on the left that his appearance was faltering and broke little new ground.
As a major next step, Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., announced that the committee would file a petition in court on Friday to obtain grand jury materials from the former special counsel’s investigation.
Nadler called the grand jury materials “critically important” for their investigation. In the petition, Democrats on the committee noted that because Justice Department policies do not allow the prosecution of a sitting president, the House of Representatives is “the only institution of the federal government” that can hold Trump accountable.
A day earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a similar statement, indicating that she had not yet seen sufficient evidence to believe that such a political move would be successful.
In either case, the grasping at straws that is occurring within the halls of Congress has been resonating poorly with the American people, who are growing weary of the entire RussiaGate conspiracy theory.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
