  • Judiciary Committee Report

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

    House Democrats
    released a report on Saturday
    intended to lay out the legal and historical underpinnings of their case for impeaching President Trump while also countering Republican accusations that the investigation of the president’s conduct in office has been unfair and illegitimate.

    Democrats have accused the president of abusing his power by trying to pressure the Ukrainian government to announce investigations into his political rivals. They also claim that Mr. Trump obstructed the congressional inquiry by blocking witnesses from testifying and refusing to provide documents.

    The 52-page report by the Democratic staff of the House Judiciary Committee argues that the framers of the Constitution intentionally provided a way to remove the occupant of the Oval Office for just such misconduct.
    “A president who perverts his role as chief diplomat to serve private rather than public ends has unquestionably engaged in ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’— especially if he invited, rather than opposed, foreign interference in our politics,” concludes the report, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment.”

    On Monday, the committee will formally receive the evidence against Mr. Trump in a public hearing. Democratic and Republican lawyers for the House Intelligence Committee, which spent two months investigating the president’s actions, will testify and answer questions, the committee announced on Saturday.

    Lawyers for the Judiciary Committee will also testify at the hearing as the panel’s 41 members begin a weeklong debate on whether to approve articles of impeachment. An official working on the inquiry, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss it publicly, said the presentations by the lawyers on each side, Barry H. Berke for the Democrats and Steve Castor for the Republicans, will serve as the “opening arguments.”

    Yea, sure... The Judiciary committee (eg., the Democrats on it) write up articles of impeachment etc., before they hear and review all the evidence...

    Stalin would be proud.

      NYT, proven fake news....

      Try again.
      "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

          There are people that they wanted to testify but Trump 'wouldn't let them.' And they had been subpoenaed, which is a legal and binding act. To defy a subpoena is against the law, and you're OK with that?

          By the way, did you watch the hearings or are you merely relying on personal opinion and bias?

            The Democrats didn't bother with a legal challenge to get those witnesses to testify because they were on an agenda to impeach Trump by Christmas. You okay with that?

            So, the Democrats have a timetable for impeachment and aren't particularly concerned with gathering, hearing, or seeing all the evidence. They just slapped enough together for a show trail and now they're moving to impeach Trump even as the hearings they scheduled have barely begun.
