For many within the United States, the impeachment “inquiry” into President Donald Trump has gone on for far too long already.
We see the entire process as the perpetual adjudication of a duly-elected President who campaigned on the very idea that he would be shaking Washington DC to its core. When he began to precisely accomplish that, a number of well-entrenched “deep state” actors began to lash out…including the Democrats who want nothing more than to somehow removed Trump from office, through impeachment or otherwise.
Now, as support for impeachment fades, it appears as though the House Democrats are eyeing a vote to take a vote on articles of impeachment within days.
Democratic lawmakers could vote this week on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the House Judiciary Committee chairman said on Sunday as lawmakers sharpened their focus on charges of wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine.
U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler said the panel will not decide on the specific articles until after a hearing on Monday to consider evidence gathered by the House Intelligence Committee in its investigation of the Republican leader.
“There are possible drafts that various people are writing,” Nadler told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But the fact is we’re not going to make any decision as to how broad the articles should be – as to what they contain, what the wording is – until after the hearing tomorrow.”
The Democratic-led House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry focuses on Trump’s request that Ukraine investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading contender for the Democratic nomination to face Trump in the November 2020 election.
If they should fail, which appears likely by the present partisan math, there is no guarantee that this would be their last attempt to upend the 2016 election, as evidenced by the number of Democrats who are already in favor of some sort of perpetual legal action against Trump.
