Pelosi Calls Democrats Together to Discuss Possible Trump Impeachment
By Rusty |The Political Insider
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is convening a meeting of Democrats later this afternoon to discuss the possible impeachment of the President of the United States.
The move comes just hours after multiple reports emerged suggesting President Trump had ordered acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to freeze roughly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, just days prior to pressuring the new Ukrainian president to investigate the business dealings of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
The Democrats are seizing on what appears to be an instance of coincidence, however. The Wall Street Journal quoted one official who said, “the request reflected the president’s concerns about how the U.S. is spending aid money and whether U.S. allies are adequately contributing.”
Spending and urging allies to contribute their fair share to world matters has long been a staple of the Trump administration. The Journal also notes that “the reasons given internally for the decision to hold up the funds were the lack of support from other countries to Ukraine and concerns about corruption in the country.”
All reasonable concerns regardless of what was said in subsequent phone calls to the Ukrainian president.

Trump has remained defiant in the face of a media and resistance movement that has suddenly forgotten about Russian collusion, emoluments, and an ‘impending’ recession, and are instead chasing their latest impeachment squirrel.
“No, I didn’t — I didn’t do it,” Trump said when asked if the withholding of aid was linked to the Biden investigation. “It’s very important to talk about corruption … Why would you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?”
The irony here is that the Democrats are pushing for Trump’s impeachment while simultaneously supporting Biden as their top candidate for 2020. The former vice president has already admitted to using his position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s prosecutor for looking into a gas company connected with Hunter.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars,’” Biden said on camera. “I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired and they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Does that sound any different than what the Democrats are accusing Trump of doing today?
Biden is convicting himself. He admits he “strong armed” Ukraine Pres. to dismiss Prosecutor Shokin who was investigating son and son’s company. ITS HILARIOUS Biden wants an investigation of anonymous allegation Trump pressured Ukraine Pres-elect.

Pelosi and the Democrats are scheduled to meet at 4 pm this evening while a bevy of key swing-district Democrats has announced their support for opening a formal impeachment inquiry.
Pelosi said cooperation between the White House prior to a Thursday hearing at the intelligence committee was imperative. Should they not provide the information she added, administration officials “will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation.”
The Associated Press provides the following context to this new impeachment push.
“It is not clear what law, if any, Trump may have broken by urging the Ukrainian government to re-open the case,” they write.
The Democrats have proven time and again they don’t need any actual high crimes and misdemeanors to move forward. They’re the true party of lawlessness and tossing the Constitution in the trash.
