Disgruntled Dems Are Already Looking For A New Impeachment Angle
Trump prevailed and overcame the House Dem's attempt to oust him from office. The Senate found the impeachment case lacking and it was rightly thrown out. But it appears House Dems are far from done, in fact, they are currently trying to find more dirt on the president.
"The Senate impeachment trial of President Trump may have ended with an acquittal, but ongoing legal battles and talk of future subpoenas hint that the drama between Congress and the White House is far from over.
"...The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to issue a ruling in the near future regarding whether the House Judiciary Committee can compel the testimony of former White House Counsel Don McGahn.
In a court filing for that case, House Democrats revealed that McGahn's testimony related to information in the Special Counsel's Russia report could even be used for new articles of impeachment.
"If McGahn’s testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly---including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment,” the committee's December brief stated, noting that they still have “ongoing impeachment investigations.”
According to former special counsel Robert Mueller's report, Trump had instructed McGahn to relay orders to have Mueller fired, which Trump's critics have said is enough to justify an obstruction of justice charge, although this was not included in the articles of impeachment that were the subject of Trump's recent trial."
“The investigations and oversight will continue,” said Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York, head of the Oversight and Reform Committee, the lead investigative panel in the House. “We’ve got several cases.”
Democratic-led committees in the House will keep seeking a wide range of evidence and testimony as they look into Trump’s administration, his policies and his businesses and finances. They also plan to keep a focus on his conduct in dealing with Ukraine.
In addition, there are multiple court cases running on separate tracks seeking access to his tax returns, testimony from former White House officials and financial records to show whether the president is unlawfully profiting from foreign governments. Three of the cases will be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in the spring."
So it looks the Dems are spending a lot of their time trying to find ways to get rid of Trump, instead of finding ways to better the lives of the Americans they were elected by. If only they could channel some of this anti-Trump energy into bettering America.
