Gil Mertz | A Truly Historic Impeachment

On the same day President Trump was signing an agreement with China at the White House that will dramatically help the American people, Nancy Pelosi was cheerfully handing out souvenir pens to giddy Democrats after signing what she called a “historic” impeachment. Historic indeed.

Historic as the only impeachment to be 100% partisan. Pelosi said months earlier, “Unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.” Ultimately, she chose to divide the country to save her political butt.

Historic as the fastest impeachment on record. Democrats insisted there was no time to subpoena more witnesses or to allow Trump to contest their requests in the courts as was his right, because our democracy could fall at any moment. And then of course, Pelosi sat on the articles of impeachment for weeks, which was also historic. 

And now, Democrats are whining that the Senate should get to call the witnesses they said they didn’t have time to call in the House because they were in such a rush. “We demand to call more witnesses now!” they say, “Just NOT Hunter Biden!”

Historic as the only impeachment that did not identify a crime. Democrats told us the evidence was overwhelming that Trump committed bribery, which IS in the Constitution. Mysteriously, they dropped the bribery charge with its “overwhelming evidence” and went with two totally subjective charges that do not constitute a crime.

Historic as the only impeachment during an election year. Rather than let America decide later this year, they want to remove him now. Democrat Al Green told us why: “If we don’t impeach Trump, he’s going to win the election.”

Nancy Pelosi will be remembered for this travesty in American political history, forever.
