House Judiciary Approves New Rules to Aid Impeachment

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Jerry Nadler, has approved new rules to make persuing a Trump impeachment easier.

According to The Hill:

The House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines Thursday to broaden the panel’s powers to investigate President Trump as Democrats seek to build their case for impeachment — and clean up their oversight message amid a month of mixed signals.

The move does not launch a formal impeachment process, but marks the first time a Democratic panel has voted on language that explicitly lays out how the party’s ongoing investigations into alleged presidential misconduct could lead to drafting — and eventual votes on — impeachment articles.

The partisan 24-17 vote followed more than two hours of feisty debate, as Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) made Democrats’ case for securing disputed information from an uncooperative administration, and Republicans rushed to Trump’s defense with accusations that Democrats are pretending to pursue impeachment without actually doing so.

That debate over the status of the Judiciary investigation — is there an impeachment inquiry or is there not? — has dogged Democrats throughout the week, as even top leaders have sent mixed signals about the nature of the probe, muddling the party’s oversight message just as the process is heating up.

Republicans have fired back claiming that the new rules and focus are intended to keep the focus off of the Democrats disarray.

Why is it all we hear is all the evil, far fetch spending of time and tax payers money by the Congress? How can people be so full of evil? Our House sure needs to be sweeep clean and get rid of all the evil in this House. If we don’t it is our destruction for our great nation. Time for people to get rid of them now or hopefully someone greater than them cuts them down with what they have done with our nation since 2012 on. Too bad Snowden doesn’t speak up and explain why he took off with what was going on during Obama’s regime that caused him to betray our nation with security.

The Democrats actually came up with some RULES? Do they even know the meaning of that word? They seem adept at disobeying Rules. Just saying.

In other words, Dems are making up rules as they go along. The process for impeachment is contained within the Constitution and ought to remain as is. Whenever Dems are blocked by the Constitution they simply pass another workaround that is patently unconstitutional. Let’s just call this what it is; an ongoing coup de’atat defined as high treason. This time arrests are required since they got a pass last time around.

It was simply a House Committee and NOT the full House and it’s only language of the rules and NOT an Impeachment. Sounds pretty lame to me and very typical of the Commie Dems!

They want to appear to impeach with out really impeaching. Nadler the sader, is he getting primaried if he doesn’t follow his far left loons? Fine, the American citizens will see liberals/progressives and democrats as the party of do nothing, except for themselves.
I do have a question about Trump in 2020, I get a lot of merch for 2020 that says Trump…. no mention of Pence. If Nicki Halley going to replace him on the ticket?

The “Committee” was just wasting time as they had nothing better to do. They could have just played poker or something else as “constructive”. There isn’t enough intelligence in the liberal/democratic party to actually do anything constructive for America.

It seems to me, that the real reason for impeaching President Trump, is not over the Russia Probe, but over his pro-life, pro-marriage stance. He’s not the only one that is pro-life and pro-marriage. Sincerely, Ruth

The Demonic Rats have done Everything they could to obstruct every move Donald Trump has made since he was elected Our President of The United States of America!
They do not care about poverty, healthcare or the fact that we are being inundated with illegal aliens, yes, I said aliens, that are bringing back diseases that have not been here for decades. It doesn’t matter how wonderful his plans and policies are, the simple fact that it was Donald Trump that enacted it makes it horrible in their eyes. They are a sad and despicable group of people that only care about hating and destroying President Donald Trump at whatever cost to the American people.

Just more B . . . S . . . to keep moving Americans to the left – and what will they do if they get elected? NOTHING good – just like ObamaCare that robbed Social Security/Medicare (again) to pay for illegals and others that have not contributed a dime, our educational system, the VA, climate change rules and regs that do nothing – do I need to go on? All of this just causes our overly bloated government from the local branches to the feds to increase taxes in the form of bonds, goods and sales tax, income tax etc. It will never end until the left has every ounce they can draw and Americans are all slaves to those in power who are slaves t the elite rich and dark money contributors aka, Globalists.

Hey, it’s PURSUING and PERUSING! Is your proofreader from the Nadler school of intellect?
Nadler has been carrying a death wish grudge for Donald Trump since the latter called him a fatso. You don’t call an obese representative “fatso” without consequences, and now the still-fat Nadler has a personal grudge to settle.

Loser that he is, Nadler will fail grandly, which will only lead to his fattening up again out of severe depression.

First time in my life have I ever heard/seen that it violates some rule or law to be a REAL AMERICAN as President! What the Socialist/Democrats better keep in mind is their attacks on President Trump are attacks on us the people who elected him! Also, their new rules could be used to impeach/Prosecute phony former president Obama for real crimes committed by him and his administration. They are well known and those who covered for him are just as dirty!
Following that trail of evidence will be fun to watch!

Could be a huge amount of grand jury cases coming up with some of the names including those that are screaming the loudest. Document will show ties they do not wish known and exposed, plus the set-up for decades that has made many on both sides wealthy and secure, all the while, criminal decisions have been the path. They NEED him out to save themselves and the corrupt machine that has been “The GOVERNMENT” of the country for SO long! Remember, cleaning the swamp, has revealed HOW MUCH BIGGER, “THE SWAMP”, really is!

There are rules and protocol in our government that have been in place for over 200 years. I most emphatically state, Democrats, YOU CANNOT MAKE UP YOUR OWN RULES, it must be done with strict attention to what already exists for any situation involving our Constitutional rights. Nadler, you look like you are PREGNANT with evil ideas on impeachment – you are, especially you, need to stuff your ideas and do it according to the law, not the Demoncrats lawlessness laws! Got it you POS!!!

I switch to Republican since 1980’s. I would say 3/4 of the Bad Democrats of Congress in Rep. are needed badly to remove. I hope you would too…!? Democrats LOVE to be Criminal and tried hard to cover-up and get away wit the crime they committed. Democrats are for Terrorist…!!!! It showed the FACTS….!!!

Heaven forbid through Dems actually do something POSITIVE for the US instead of constantly being on the hate and destroy Trump bandwagon. They are so afraid of losing the 2020 electins, hey are blind to how most real Americans feel. Trump has been a gift to the country .I may not like the man, but sane people know all the good he has done. So keep up your stupidity Dems and watch your party go down in flames in Nov. 2020.

Sounds as if they all ( Democrats) need to see a psychiatrist and get their heads straight. How on earth can so many elected officials go so crazy at the same time? They have made it very clear that they think of nothing but giving trouble to the President. They do NOTHING for the benefit of the American people. Throw them all OUT ! (And, garnish their wages for being ‘non-productive’.)

So, after a month long paid vacation from a job there weren’t actually doing in the first place, instead of doing something important & useful, like approve the trade deal with Mexico & Canada, or remove Omar & Tlaib from their positions, or denounce attacks against our constitution, etc., they waste tax dollars on more bogus attacks against the President? Typical democrat stupidity, leadint he nation further in to that massive pit that their beloved Lord Hussein Obama was taking us down. I hope every one of them loses the next elections & many end up in prison where they belong, or at least in the welfare line, like the losers they are.

All of these hypocrite liberal career criminals involved in this impeachment activity should be arrested to GITMO for many counts of sedition & theft of trillions of taxpayer funds , at the very least. , Since their career organized crime exponentially far exceeds anything Trump & Kavanaugh have ever had the time to even do !

The constitution already lays out articles for impeachment and the only way to change that is with a full 2/3 vote of each chamber and then it has to be ratified through a high majority (either 2/3 or 3/4) of states. It isn’t in their power to make up their own rules as they go along

Well, as far as the House goes? All I’m seeing is a lot of clueless Bafoons, who are sitting in their chairs, whining, griping….moaning an groaning about a LOT OF NOTHING! They are totally SCARED because of all the lies they’ve told about our President, and all the Law Breaking THEY have been a part of, within the hallowed halls of our Government.
Worst part is, they just keep adding to the LIES, with assistance from the MSM.
I would love to find enough people to SUE every, single MSM outlet, for Aiding and Abetting via the DemonRats, and clean them OUT! Why? So REAL MEDIA can take over every, single one of them and report Honest News, because the LYING MEDIA has been has been collaborating with the real law-breakers for far too long.

When are the ass holes in Congress going to do their job and do something for the good of our country instead of trying to impeach the President? They wasted a fortune with the Russia/Trump probe and got nowhere, now this. I was once a Democrat, but seeing the way they do things and having Hillary ( who couldn’t do anything for her country) run for President has made me change parties. The Democrats only do things to benefit themselves and to get votes. Time for Congress to do the things that we the people voted for to represent us.

Needless Nadler just assured all Americans that come elections his personal hate filled rants against president Trump will bring about a thorough toilet scrubbing come November, wherein “we the people” will flush him and all his lunatic frenzied treasonous co-conspirators down the shit hole where they belong. I’d like to think of it as a super flush, long long overdue.
