Democrats Unveil Two Frivolous, Focus-Grouped Articles of Fake Impeachment

David French hardest hit. She was holding out for a million. One for every tear Trump has made her cry!



House Democrats on Tuesday introduced two articles of impeachment against President Trump alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress regarding his interactions with Ukraine, touching off a rapid-fire sequence that could result in a momentous floor vote in a matter of days.

"The framers of the Constitution prescribed a clear remedy for presidents who so violate their oath of office," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. "No one, not even the president, is above the law."

His office later posted text of the articles, which declare Trump's actions warrant impeachment, trial and removal from office.

The White House swiftly hit back, accusing Democrats of using the Ukraine issue as an excuse for "this partisan, gratuitous, and pathetic attempt to overthrow the Trump Administration and the results of the 2016 election."


...


"He has given us no choice," Schiff said of Trump. "To do nothing would make ourselves complicit in the president's abuse of his high office."

Trump fired back minutes later, blasting the entire inquiry as a "WITCH HUNT!" -- the same term he used for the Russia investigation.
...

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham slammed the announcement as part of Democrats' bid to "overturn the votes" of 63 million Americans who supported Trump in 2016.

...

While Republicans have blasted the process as partisan, dubbing it the "focus group impeachment" in response to reports that Democrats tested different allegations with focus groups, Democrats are moving swiftly ahead of the holiday break.

The term the Democrats found tested best with focus groups -- "bribery" -- is absent from the articles of fake impeachment.

I guess it doesn't play in Peoria.

Oh, and as mentioned in the sidebar: CNN has a tearjerker report that James Comey's mother-in-law fears for his legal peril, because Trump calls him (accurately) a dirty cop.

Former FBI Director James Comey defended the FBI and ripped President Donald Trump's constant criticisms of the agency, detailing how worried they had made his family -- even convincing Comey's mother-in-law that he was going to jail.

The interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on "Anderson Cooper 360" came the same days as the release of a highly anticipated report by the Justice Department's inspector general that established that the FBI properly opened its investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election but said there were major errors in how the agency conducted the probe.

F*** your whore mother in law, Comey. You need to be someone's prison bitch.

Text of the Two Articles of Impeachment:

1) OrangeManBad was elected in 2016.

2) OrangeManBad will get reelected in 2020.
