This language of the Republicans is in such stark contrast to the language of the Democrats.
Is this a “dangerous precedent”?
House Republicans delivered a point-by-point rebuttal Monday to Democrats’ impeachment efforts, claiming in their own report that the evidence collected in the inquiry to date does not support the accusations leveled against President Trump — or rise to the level of removal from office.
“The evidence presented does not prove any of these Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor,” Republicans said in a 123-page report, timed to be made public ahead of the majority Democrats’ impeachment report.
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif.; Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul, R-Texas, penned the minority report, which has been reviewed by Fox News. In it, they broadly defend the president’s actions in the face of accusations he withheld military aid and a White House meeting as leverage to pressure Ukraine to launch a probe involving the Bidens.
“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.
They added: “This impeachment inquiry and the manner in which the Democrats are pursuing it sets a dangerous precedent.”
The actual dangerous precedent was the entire Russia hoax, which the stupid, gay GOP went along with almost completely. These dumb bastards actually said that Russia “hacked the election” for Donald Trump.
This was all completely fake, a two-year hoax designed to cripple an elected president. And it was a hoax formulated from a spying conspiracy by Barack Obama. All the people involved in that should be in jail right now – instead Donald Trump is being witch hunted, yet again, over something that is not less dumb but probably less insane.
Secondly, the dangerous precedent on impeachment was set by the Republicans when they impeached Bill Clinton for totally partisan political reasons.
Republicans should be doing everything they can to attack Democrats, and rallying around Trump.
But they won’t. Because they are bought and paid for shills.
