Washington, D.C.: Last night the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump. Even a brief read of this situation reveals that this Democratic effort means absolutely nothing.
“Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic majority in the U.S. House has tossed aside all pretense of governing,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Last night’s shameful display of blatant partisanship served but one purpose — the overwhelming reelection of Donald J. Trump. In a series of votes, Democrats succeeded in showing the American people just how Constitutionally illiterate they really are. This is truly a black mark on our nation’s history. Rules, civility, and the true solemnity of our Constitutional Republic were tossed out in favor of pure hatred and pursuit of power. Shame on you, Nancy Pelosi.”
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy was spot-on in his remarks during the 6-hour-long debate before votes. This impeachment is an “exercise in raw political power.” Their cohorts in the media furiously “tried to normalize” this impeachment. “This is their last attempt to stop the Trump presidency…. They’ll do anything or say anything to stop him in 2020. That’s not America. That’s not how democratic republics behave…. In eleven months the people’s voice will be heard again.”
