Wow, it’s starting already!
We all talking impeachment quite often, since Donald Trump is clearly unfit for the office of President of The United States. But impeachment isn’t an easy thing to do, and for it to be successful, it would require two-thirds of the Senate to vote on it. We are not there…yet.
However, one Democratic Congressman disagrees and he’s ready to move NOW.
New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler’s website lays out his argument to begin looking into whether Trump’s business dealings violate of the Office of the President, as well as his OBVIOUS ties to Russia, and whether those ties affected the result of the election.
Nadler’s website reads:
“Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), senior Member of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced a Resolution of Inquiry directing the Department of Justice to provide the House of Representatives with any and all information relevant to an inquiry into President Trump and his associates’ conflicts of interest, ethical violations—including the Emoluments Clause—and Russia ties. If the House Judiciary Committee does not schedule the resolution for a Markup within 14 legislative days, it becomes a privileged resolution and can be brought to the floor in front of the full House for a vote.”
According to Nadler:
“Democrats have repeatedly asked the Majority, in letters to Chairman Goodlatte and Speaker Ryan, to investigate these ongoing conflicts of interest, and those requests have been ignored.”
“Donald Trump has refused to step away from his business interests in any meaningful way, his foreign entanglements are likely unconstitutional, he has repeatedly refused to disclose his financial assets, and he is clouded by the specter of Russian intervention in the election and his Administration. Republicans have shown zero willingness to follow through on their duty to conduct oversight, and they must be held accountable if they are truly willing to abdicate this constitutional obligation and must be made to answer to the American people for that failure. We must know what the Department has learned about the Administration’s connections to the Russian government. We must review the Department’s legal analysis—if there is any—of the President’s feeble attempt to remedy his wide-ranging ethics problems. We must conduct oversight of the least transparent Administration in modern history. This resolution represents a start.”
