Republicans Throw A Tantrum And Write Bogus Impeachment Report

Republicans Throw A Tantrum And Write Bogus Impeachment Report


House Republicans will release a bogus report on impeachment that claims that Trump was behaving in an apolitical way, and was trying to fight corruption.

Via The New York Times:

House Republicans plan to argue that President Trump was acting on “genuine and reasonable” skepticism of Ukraine and “valid” concerns about possible corruption involving Americans, not political self-interest, when he pressed the country for investigations of his Democratic rivals, according to a draft of a report laying out their impeachment defense.

In a 123-page document that echoes the defiant messaging that Mr. Trump has employed in his own defense, the Republicans do not concede a single point of wrongdoing or hint of misbehavior by the president, according to a copy reviewed by The New York Times ahead of its planned release on Tuesday.

…..

“The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is not the organic outgrowth of serious misconduct; it is an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system,” the Republicans wrote. “The Democrats are trying to impeach a duly elected president based on the accusations and assumptions of unelected bureaucrats who disagreed with President Trump’s policy initiatives and processes.”

House Republicans led by the likes of Rep. Devin Nunes and Jim Jordan are going to release a report that echoes Trump’s tantrums and denials while ignoring the thousands of pages of evidence and witness testimony that have been collected against the president.


The report will be a bogus political document that is intended to muddy the waters and repeats Trump’s nonsensical impeachment strategy. House Republicans could save themselves a lot of wasted time and energy by releasing a report that solely consists of the sentence, “The Ukraine call was perfect.”

Trump was trying to create more corruption in Ukraine, not stop it. The claim that Trump withheld vital military aid was debunked by Pentagon testimony that the aid had already cleared the corruption review months before Trump blocked its release.

The Republican spin has already failed and the GOP has been reduced to putting Trump’s tantrums and excuses on paper and calling it a “report,” that will make Donald Trump happy, but do nothing to counter the mountain of evidence against this president.

5. They Are Just Digging Themselves A Deeper Hole.....

It seems like more info is coming out everyday about this bribery and extortion (i.e., Parnas).

They are pulling the trigger to early with this report. Any additional info that comes out will probably shoot holes in this report.

The Repugs will be sorry for circling the wagons around Trump this time.

7. They do not care...

The "report" is meant to do only one thing - provide talking points for Fox News to bleat about every night and their radio 'stars' to bleat about all day. This is how propaganda and cults work...you think the people's temple WANTED to listen to Jim Jones alone? They were NEVER going to be given a choice after they signed up, HE controlled everything.

Trump controls the GOP now, 100% through and through. I spit on anyone who dares call themselves "Republican" with this current subservient, quisling 'leadership'. I hope that they ALL meet untimely and painful ends. Soon.

12. He wasn't "duly elected."

But, that's what they want to claim, because to claim so arouses his base to a "how dare they!" state of opposition. They have no defense against the obvious.
