House democrats demand documents from Mike Pence’s hotel stay in Ireland

The entire debacle sounds like the sort of technicality-tirade that has characterized the liberal anti-Trump agenda for years now.

The lengths to which the liberal left is willing to go in order to disparage the President seemingly know no bounds.

This week alone has been a wild one for the ever-reaching democratic “resistance”, who spent an inordinate amount of time lambasting the Commander in Chief over a sharpie bubble on a map in the Oval Office.  The cartographical chaos even had one television host suggesting that the President may have committed a felony by sharing the altered image.

Now, in yet another nod to their pedantic, “get him at all costs” attitude, House democrats are demanding information on Vice President Mike Pence’s recent trip to Ireland.

House Democrats are investigating Vice President Mike Pence’s decision to stay at President Trump’s golf resort in Doonbeg, Ireland, claiming the move could have possibly violated the emoluments clause in the Constitution and is “of significant interest” as the House Judiciary Committee considers whether to recommend articles of impeachment against the president.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., penned a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Secret Service Director James Murray late Thursday, seeking information about Trump’s “apparent promotion and solicitation of foreign and U.S. government business at Trump Organization owned or affiliated properties.”

This is nothing new for Nadler, of course.

Nadler’s committee is already investigating alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption and other alleged abuses by the president, but claimed that the vice president’s stay at Doonbeg, as well as Trump’s proposal to host the 2020 G-7 summit at Trump National Doral Golf Club outside Miami, were “potential violations of the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution,” and noted that they are “of significant interest and grave concern to the Committee as it considers whether to recommend articles of impeachment.”

The entire debacle sounds like the sort of technicality-tirade that has characterized the liberal anti-Trump agenda for years now.

“The Doral and Doonbeg cases are just two of the many examples of the solicitation or receipt of foreign government spending to the benefit of the President’s private financial interests,” Nadler wrote. “While White House officials have repeatedly claimed it is easier for Secret Service and law enforcement to secure the President’s resorts when he and the Vice President travel, there has been no confirmation by law enforcement or the Secret Service to support the practice of spending taxpayer dollars on the President’s businesses.”

Nadler has long insisted that he and others in his committee are in the first stages of an “impeachment investigation”, despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s inexhaustible insistence that no such official move is being made.
