Speaker Pelosi has officially ordered Chairman Nadler to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump, but let’s not pretend this has not been their plan from the start.
Democrats have claimed they are hesitant or remorseful about impeachment, but their timeline shows they have been plotting to take down President Trump all along:
- January 2017: Before President Trump took office, Congressmen John Lewis and Jerry Nadler expressed that they view Trump as an illegitimate President.
- January 2019, the first day of 116th Congress: Mere hours after being sworn-in, Rep. Rashida Tlaib proclaims that, “We’re going to impeach the mother-.”
- May 2019: Rep. Al Green, the chief architect of their impeachment efforts, admits the Democrats’ mentality when it comes to impeachment: “I’m concerned if we don’t impeach this President, he will get re-elected.”
- September 2019: Rep. Ilhan Omar declares that it is not a matter of “if” the President will be impeached, but “when.”
Democrats have wanted to impeach President Trump since before he even took office, facts be damned. This pre-meditated set-up creates a dangerous precedent for our country.
