After months of sham hearings, partisan witnesses, and still no evidence the president did anything wrong, House Democrats passed both articles of impeachment against President Trump: obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.
But many noticed that Democrats dropped two of the main charges they levied against the president since they kicked off the impeachment inquiry back in October: bribery and obstruction of justice.
For several months, Democrats accused Trump of “bribing” the Ukrainian president during his July 25 phone call, where they allege the president engaged in a quid pro quo.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, and others have endless claimed Trump is guilty of “bribery” when he “threatened” the Ukrainian president to open an investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s shady business deals if they wanted military aid from the U.S.
They also accused Trump of “obstructing justice,” but they dropped that allegation too and instead went with the vague version of “obstruction of Congress” because Trump didn’t participate in their sham hearings.
Democrats dropped the “bribery” and “obstruction of justice” charges because they have no evidence to support those false claims.
Breitbart News reports:
Democrats are apparently going to drop accusations of “bribery” and “obstruction of justice” from their articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, which are expected to be delivered on Tuesday, according to reports.
As Breitbart News’ Joshua Caplan noted Monday evening, the Washington Post broke the story that Democrats “will focus on abuse of power and obstructing Congress.”
In more good news for Trump, Democrats also dropped another specious charge – “obstruction of justice.”
Democrats will also apparently abandon “obstruction of justice” charges stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia “collusion.” Though Mueller found no “collusion,” he declined to make a recommendation about obstruction.
So why did Democrats drop those two charges?
Former Federal Prosecutor Robert Ray revealed on Fox News that: (1) Democrats didn’t have evidence to prove Trump bribed anyone or obstructed justice and (2) neither charge is an impeachable offense.
“My first reaction to that is despite what you just heard from Chairman Nadler, neither one of those is a high crime or misdemeanor,” Ray said.
He added: “So we have not passed through an investigation over the course of the last several months where it’s not treason, it’s not bribery, it’s not extortion, it’s not a foreign an illegal foreign campaign violation it’s now whatever a majority of the House of Representatives that is controlled by the Democrats say it is, which is abuse of power, abuse of conduct and an inter-branch dispute.”
Democrats have no case.
They have accused Trump of just about everything imaginable, and after months of wasting taxpayer dollars to hold impeachment hearings, they still can’t prove the president did anything wrong.
So they picked two vague “charges” to levy against the president and will claim he obstructed Congress and abused his power — which is exactly what Democrats have been guilty of since Trump took office.
