As the Democrats continue to toil away in the shadowy corners of Capitol Hill, their case for impeachment grows weaker by the day. The convoluted nature of the entire UkraineGate affair has bored the American public to no end, as they grow accustomed to witnessing the absurd Democratic theater involved.
Every witness and every soundbite is another chance for the Republicans to chip away at the left’s case. Soon, when impeachment hearings finally turn public, we’ll witness a truly tawdry spectacle, undoubtedly, as the two sides of the aisle clash live on cable TV.
In order to stave off concerns about their ever-complicating case, the Democrats are now reportedly considering drafting articles of impeachment – a step in the process that represents the very last “point of no return”
House Democrats have reportedly weighed drafting three articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, sparked by a so-called “whistleblower’s” mischaracterization of the president’s phone call with the leader of Ukraine.
According to ABC News, Democrats are evaluating articles charging President Trump with abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and contempt of Congress.
Impeachment investigators believe the president could be charged with abuse of power for floating to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into allegations of corruption against former Vice President and 2020 White House contender Joe Biden, along with his beleaguered son, Hunter Biden. Further, lawmakers believe the president may have obstructed justice and be in contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas for documents and witness testimony.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised that the impeachment trial that will be undertaken by the higher chamber of Congress will be a “swift” one – another inclination that the threat of impeachment is being diluted by the length and scope of the Democrats’ scattered tentacles.
