  1. ARTICLE II: OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS
    In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Donald J. Trump has directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives pursuant to its “sole Power of Impeachment”. President Trump has abused the powers of the Presidency in a manner offensive to, and subversive of, the Constitution.

    In the history of the Republic, no President has ever ordered the complete defiance of an impeachment inquiry or sought to obstruct and impede so comprehensively the ability of the House of Representatives to investigate “high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. This abuse of office served to cover up the President’s own repeated misconduct and to seize and control the power of impeachment—and thus to nullify a vital constitutional safeguard vested solely in the House of Representatives.

    In all of this, President Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice, and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

    Wherefore, President Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law. President Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.

    Article II, Section 4, says the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    So shall it be written, so shall it be done..

    Nancy was straining every muscle in her face up there to stop herself from grinning like a Cheshire Cat 🤣🤣🤣

      @governmentcheese411 Article One of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power of impeachment and the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. No criminal court has any jurisdiction over the impeachment process, not even the Supreme Court… dude, I’m not even a Yank and I know that 😄

    • Pelosi is not some champion here. She barely did anything the last few years and she wouldn’t have done anything if the rest of them didn’t keep pressing her

      @Marius Thefaker lol… clearly no one is gonna take the democraps claim to impeachment away. i meant that it looks like the supreme court will hear trumps case. and thus may rule that the so-called charges made by the dems are not valid. furthermore, that the dems move for impeachment will NOT be upheld in the senate. it’s not about the impeachment anyways. it is and always has been about removing trump, period. and that is clearly not gonna happen. and the democraps failed monumentally.
      so you can haggle over words all day long. the end game for the dems was never to get a piece of paper that says impeachment on it. which is all they have. and all they’ll ever get, period.

    • #NancyHoldsTheCardsNow 😏

    • THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS “Obstruction Of Congress”… ARE DEMOCRATS REALLY THIS DENSE???

  4. I guess Nancy walked the dog tonight.

  5. Congrats to Trump!

  7. Can tRump be impeached again for a second time come Nov. 2020?

  8. Good Job Tulsi, now you’ve proved your loyalty to the GOP. Do you want to run for President now on the GOP’s ticket? Trump’s out and Fox News is hiring too.

  9. Here’s a little minor adjustment on a misstatement regarding, “crowd-size,” which is: There were more people who showed up for donald john trump’s Impeachment. (Impeachment-auguration).

    〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️

    (1st Article):
    “The 230-197 Vote to Impeach donald john trump, for ‘Abuse of power,’ was almost entirely on party lines. And a quick, subsequent/second vote, on whether donald john trump have Obstructed Congress.

    (2nd Article):
    “The 229-198 Vote to Impeach donald john trump, for ‘Obstruction of Congress,’ was almost entirely on party lines. And that quick, subsequent/second vote, on whether donald john trump have Obstructed Congress, was approved✅ —- House majority approved second Impeachment Article against donald john trump on “Obstruction of Congress.”

      @Los Critics Supreme I’m big dumb dumb. Stop hurting my extremely primitive brain.

      @United Federation of KFC you are correct. The Republicans wasted all that time as well with bill Clinton. This is real, would you rather have pence or Trump? Pence has radical conservative views on certain issues. You can’t say Trump hasn’t done anything the liberals have wanted someone to do. He was just rude about it, and comes off racist. The only reason Dems and liberals have an issue with the wall now is, because he made it come across as being racist. So people tie his wall with race. doesn’t mean we don’t need something for border protection. Y’all (Dems and liberals) agreed to 750 miles of wall back in the late 2000s. This whole impeachment was a waste of time. What is going to happen has already been written by someone else. Do you really think that Trump calls the shots. Both sides work for the same team.

      @United Federation of KFC what they want to happen is happening. How do you take down a country. First step is to divide the country. What is going on now. Second step is probably going to be a huge disaster to cause panic and fear. Third step is to let it play out and then step in to clean up the mess and rebuild. It only makes sense. And that is also another way to deal with population control which is gonna become an issue. Read about the Georgia guide stone. Things are already determined and being executed. We are merely pawns on a huge chess board. I mean that figuratively and literally because the Earth is flat like a chess board in a sense.

      @Madison shanks I can say that as a liberal I’m fine with border protection but not a wall. It’s not racists to deport illegal immigrants (maybe a little racy to straight up say their Mexicans, when the majority come from SA, but nothing to major). I dont want to change the subject to the wall but, in as short as I can make it, increase border security, stop giving border patrol hand-me-downs, and revise visas (as a large portion of illegals simply fly to the states). There are also other things that I (I dont speak for Liberals and I dont want you assuming such) disagree with other then the border wall. Like leaving the Iran Deal, the trade war against a country whose people’s are essentially drones and can handle the sanctions, etc, etc.

      No I agree and disagree that dems and republicans are going for the same side. Both wants what’s “best” for the country but yell and throw fecies at each other on how to do it.

  16. Now let’s impeach the rest of the government.

  17. the blinded trumplican party will pay, and pay dearly in the years ahead due to their pledge to party over country & constitution. And so it is written.
