Trump’s Strategy Is to Completely Reject Impeachment

President Trump is taking a very unique approach to defending his impeachment – denying it even exists.

Donald Trump has now been officially impeached by the Democrat controlled House. The Articles were drafted for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress based on the circumstances surrounding a phone call in which Trump appeared to press Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to probe the family of former Vice President Joe Biden while withholding foreign military aid to the country.

But, the very next afternoon, Trump responded to his impeachment by telling reporters that it was a hoax. “I don’t feel like I’m being impeached because it’s a hoax,” he said. “It’s a setup, it’s a horrible thing they did.”

Trump went on to say, “They happen to have a small majority and they took that small majority and they forced people,” the president continued, “I watched Pelosi out there saying, ‘Oh, no, we don’t want to talk to anybody.’ They tried to get them to do what they had to do and many of those people were like Jeff [Van Drew], where they didn’t want to go that way.”

“To me it doesn’t feel like impeachment,” he repeated. “It doesn’t feel like impeachment. It’s a phony deal and they cheapened the word impeachment, it’s an ugly word, but they cheapened the word impeachment. That should never again happen to another president.”

Despite his denials, technically, Trump has been officially “impeached,” because, the power to impeach lies solely with the House. According to Article One of the Constitution, “The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”

If the official is then convicted in a Senate impeachment trial, they will be removed from office — and we all know that is as unlikely as a White Christmas in Miami!

However, to a degree, Trump may be right about not even currently being impeached by the House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been stalling in sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate; and Constitutional scholars, in fact, one who testified as one of the Democrats own “fact witnesses,”  – Noah Feldman — says, in the absence of formally sending the Articles to the upper chamber, technically, there is no impeachment!

    And the house will keep the scam going by having further impeachment hearings all the way up to the 2020 elections…after all the citizens gave them the majority to run this three ring circus by either being stupid enough to vote democrat…or by being to lazy to get off your butt and vote against this travesty….it remains to see what will happen in the 2020 election…?

      I have seen the Nixon resignation and the Clinton impeachment. I have read and have a good understanding of the Bill of Rights, I have read the Federalist Papers numerous times and I think my understanding is much better than many members of Congress both chambers. I’m not an attorney, I am just a retired Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer having said that in my opinion our president is not impeached unless and until Ms Pelosi gets on her broom and she has the fake articles of impeachment brought to the upper chamber and they hold a trial and find the man guilty, until then just because they don’t like the president is not a reason for holding the country hostage and doing not much. The 116th Congress is a joke, a total Do Nothing Congress. I hope Mr Trump wipes whoever is representing the pathetic far left party up in November. I’m here to say the Democrat Party has died and the far left candidates have moved to the left so far that it should now be called the Socialist Party because that’s what I am hearing and the sheep are buying it.

    Most people guilty of a major crime which could cause them a significant change in lifestyle claim they are not guilty. Why do you think President would not follow suit – he lies enough about many things.

    All the Demorats involved should be impeached and thrown in jail for all the crimes they’ve commited. That should include the crimes they have committed prior to President Trumps win. That should keep them locked up for a couple of life sentences.

    First he is NOT impeached until the Congress sends the paperwork over. So he isn’t impeached YET..but the Senators will hear the lies, counter report the truth and it will be thrown out like it should be. IT never should of happened to start with. The whole this BS. Why is Trump allowed to be made fun of, insulted, attacked and NOTHING HAPPENS to the attacker…aka reports, congress , the idiot Pelosi, the ass kisser Schumer…and the list goes on all the way back to Hillary…and they are all just walking around free of all the never ending harrassment..IF i was Trump i would get the story straight and then flood the social media with the truth and attack and destroy the demon rats..but play nice i guess…

    This hollow Impeachment folly is one of the greatest travesty imposed on a highly successful, achieving President Trump, a shameful mockery of pre-eminent American justice, shocking to every sense of common decency,an insult to one’s intelligence & a shameful assault on our hallowed US Constitution that this rare, grave, solemn process is articulated for treason, bribery, high crimes & misdemeanors neither are and which further diminishes the already disrepute & dignity of the lower Congressional House Democrats.
    This grievous wrong must be rectified, rejected, dismissed,even expunged by the august Senate & soon.

    There are those who delude themselves in the false narrative that the House impeachment of president Trump is a done deal. The impeachment process, in reality, is only halfway done with the Senate still to do its part in the process. The Democratic House was intent on impeachment, with or without evidence or respected/credible witnesses. Motivated only by unreasonable hate for president Trump, his party and any and all who would support him, now and in 2020.
    Given the above credible evidence, or lack there of,the Senate is set to exonerate president Trump in short order. This is being done with the over whelming support of the nations populace, of all races and creeds.

      Obviously Trump did not stir the depths of patriots anywhere or he would never have been elected. His statement that if he were elected he could do anything he wanted is that of a despot, a dictator. He is that and his mentor is obviously Putin. Americans, educated or not never read books or journals of people who have investigated Trump. The truth is too good for them as it is too good for Trump. His ability to lie is like the breaths he takes. The list of those taking Russian contributions and help to be elected has been going on for years. Those with the power of the NRA, who toot their patriotism never look to see where their money actually comes from. McConnell is a disgrace. The love of money will sink America, as will Donald Trump.

        I’ve learned over the years that People who only read what they agree with rather than an occasional opposing view to get a different perspective so as to make a rational decision with facts, are generally dumb as rocks about actual, factual truth. Amazing how those very people have tunnel vision and there’s no
        use making any attempt to help them see the truth. It’s like a communicable disease, and both parties of our political fabric are infected.
