The House Just Voted On Impeachment
Just so everyone is on the same page: It's almost IMPOSSIBLE to impeach any President when his party controls the majority. But we are in HUGE danger of losing the House THIS YEAR. And if we do lose the House, it will still be extremely hard for the Dems to Impeach Trump, but it would be a REAL possibility. So let's make sure we keep the House under Republican control for the love of God.
Al Green’s impeachment effort has been blocked in the House of Representatives by a large majority.
AP Reported: WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has voted to block a Democratic lawmaker from seeking to impeach the president.
Democratic congressman Al Green of Texas had offered articles of impeachment based on comments by President Donald Trump. Green said Trump had incited “hate and hostility” by reportedly using a vulgarity to describe African countries last week.
The House voted to table the impeachment resolution on a vote of 355-66. The House blocked Green’s first impeachment effort last month.
Democrats opposing the effort say it’s premature to act before special counsel Robert Mueller completes an investigation into meddling by Russia in the presidential election. Read more here or check out the latest report below.
Lawmakers have stated that they believe many will be terminated at the Department of Justice following the release of the FISA memo.
Free Market Shooter reported: In a flurry of headlines and statements amid a bombshell report by Sara Carter, a memo outlining a classified document exposing extensive FISA abuse was made available to all House members late Thursday evening. Read more.
…the revelations [from the memo] could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice…
Carter then summarizes the truth behind Trump’s “wiretapping” claim against Obama that ignited a firestorm in March of last year…
The dossier was used in part as evidence for a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign… Former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier in 2016, was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS. In October, The Washington Post revealed for the first time that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC that financed Fusion GPS.
In short, Buzzfeed’s infamous “golden showers” Trump dossier was used as bogus reasoning to obtain a FISA warrant and spy on the Trump campaign.
The real kicker, though, is the fact that Fusion GPS – who hired Christopher Steele, the originator of the unsourced dossier – was funded by both Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
It should come as no surprise that the Democrats voted to block the release of the documents detailing the FISA abuses perpetrated by the Obama administration.
Several lawmakers weighed in on the issue through Thursday night…
Speaking with Fox News, the lawmakers said they could not yet discuss the contents of the memo they reviewed on Thursday after it was released to members by the House Intelligence Committee. But they say the memo should be immediately made public.
“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said.
“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he believed people could lose their jobs after the memo is released.
“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.
Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) also appeared on Fox Business to talk about the memo and called for complete transparency regarding the issue.
