GOP's New Plan Is Sure To Trigger Impeachment Dems
It seems that Trump's record will likely be fixed. House Minority Leader Rep McCarthy is claiming that if the GOP can win back the House in the upcoming election, then they are going to expunge the impeachment from Trump's record. This would wipe away any record of The Trump-Hating House Dem's attempt to oust the president.
“I think [if] we take the majority, some of the key priorities for us are infrastructure, lowering prescription drugs and others. But I think when you look at what the Democrats have done, I also think we have to get to the bottom of it,” McCarthy continued. “There’s still an 18th transcript that was never released about the inspector general. It’s interesting to know, in there there was 179 pages, did Adam Schiff know the whistleblower? Did he meet with the whistleblower? I think a lot of questions are raised about whether that individual, Adam Schiff, was a fact witness.”
"Republicans need to flip 18 seats to retake the House and have the majority needed to pass such a measure along party lines. With Trump on the ballot in November, they are expecting an enthusiasm boost among voters.
“We feel very, very confident that come November [voters] are going to make the right decision and Speaker Pelosi’s term as speaker of the House will not go beyond this year,” said House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Wednesday.
The notion of expungement is likely to please Trump, who has been stung by being the third president in history to be impeached. His defense team told senators it was reasonable for Trump to ask Ukraine to investigate Democrats including former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who scored a cushy board job at a Ukrainian energy company while his father led the Obama administration’s push to rid Ukraine of corruption. Trump denies stalling nearly $400 million in foreign aid as leverage.
Unlike other impeached presidents, Trump is poised to potentially serve another full term, increasing the political value of expungement for him and for GOP lawmakers.
Backers of the notion point to the House voting in 1837 to expunge a censure of President Andrew Jackson, though some legal experts believe expungement would be only symbolic."
I can't wait to see how House Dems react to that news. Schiff and Nadler are going to have a meltdown.
