Two Articles of Impeachment Approved by House Judiciary Committee

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 9:10 am

I gather the Republicans are really upset that the vote didn’t happen last night at midnight, so that they could scream about a “midnight vote!”

The House Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to adopt two articles of impeachment against President Trump – capping a contentious three-day session that Republicans panned as a “kangaroo court.”

The committee adopted both articles, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, on a party-line vote of 23-17. A final vote in the full House is expected next week, which could tee up a Senate trial in the new year just before presidential primaries are set to get underway.

The Senate trial promises to be a serious and sober look at the evidence against the President, conducted by a party that is … coordinating with the President about every aspect of the trial and boasting about it:

Paraphrase: “Trump fans, I wish we could refuse to do this at all, but trust me when I say that the process will be such a pro-Trump sham that it will be pretty much the same as if we refused to do it.”

The Republicans are a disgrace and the Democrats are a policy trainwreck.

A sane person has nowhere left to go.

  1. “A sane person has nowhere left to go.”

    Yes. Well, fads come and go in cycles- hopefully the Republican party will eventually return to being a conservative party instead of a personality cult.
