Echoing threats she made on Thursday, Pelosi on Friday said that Congress would move forward with new articles of impeachment if Pence did not act — comparing Trump’s acts to those of President Nixon in the Watergate scandal. “Yesterday, Leader Schumer and I placed a call with Vice President Pence, and we still hope to hear from him as soon as possible with a positive answer as to whether he and the Cabinet will honor their oath to the Constitution and the American people,” she wrote. “If the President does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action,” she warned. It’s unclear if Pence and his cabinet will take such a dramatic and destabilizing act in the final two weeks of Trump’s presidency.

Articles of impeachment accusing President Trump of “inciting an insurrection” have been drafted by Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats in the wake of the deadly Capitol siege and will be formally introduced on Monday, according to reports.
Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats will go back to the well one more time to impeach President Trump, hoping this time they have popular sentiment on their side. For the past 4 years, they have done nothing but object, obstruct, hinder and delay President Trump, failing in every one the wars they started to destroy him. This time they are sure have they him backed into a corner, and are now about to pounce. Careful, Nancy…sic semper tyrannus.
“But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.” Psalm 9:7 (KJB)
Politics is a brutally demonic environment, one where you sell whatever is left of your conscience, if you still have one, on a daily basis to make the next slimey deal with the various liars and cheats you work with. A person may go into politics as a Christian, but so far none have ever come out the other side as a Christian with their testimony for the Lord intact. Not a single one. Can you imagine at the next session of Congress, someone stands up and says “I will not vote for this legislation, the Lord Jesus would never approve of it.”, and then not back down when they apply the pressure for you to compromise? Show me that person, you can’t do it.
The dream of the Democrats was never about “beating Trump”, it has always been about seeing him humiliated and dragged out in handcuffs. Starting Monday, chief demon of the House Nancy Pelosi will use every dirty trick at her disposal, call in every favored owed, and will threaten and hiss until she gets her way. She will likely get what her black heart craves, and with it, the last vestiges of freedom, decency and fairness in America will be flushed down the drain. I have never been more ashamed to be an American than I am right now watching the evil that has taken over this country.
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJB)
You can hate Trump all you want, but at least he tried to stop the madness, and for a short season was successful. Thank you for your service, Mr. President, I voted for you in 2016, I voted for you in 2020, and now I will retire my vote and withdraw from this pusillanimous disgrace called the Republican party. They are not one bit better than the Democrats, may the Lord judge swiftly and bring about His Isaiah 28 ‘strange act’ soon.
Articles of impeachment sparked by Capitol siege drafted by House Democrats
FROM THE NY POST: The document, which has over 150 sponsors, accuses Trump of violating his Constitutional duty by encouraging a crowd of his supporters to fight the vote to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.
“IN ALL OF THIS, PRESIDENT TRUMP GRAVELY ENDANGERED THE SECURITY OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. HE THREATENED THE INTEGRITY OF THE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM, INTERFERED WITH THE PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER, AND IMPERILED A COORDINATE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT,” THE DOCUMENT READS.
It is the second time that Congress has moved to impeach Trump. He was impeached by acquitted at trial by the Senate last year after he was accused of improperly pressuring the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden.
No president has ever been impeached twice.
Dozens of Democrats and a growing number of Republicans have called on Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump, claiming he is no longer fit for office.
Echoing threats she made on Thursday, Pelosi on Friday said that Congress would move forward with new articles of impeachment if Pence did not act — comparing Trump’s acts to those of President Nixon in the Watergate scandal.
“YESTERDAY, LEADER SCHUMER AND I PLACED A CALL WITH VICE PRESIDENT PENCE, AND WE STILL HOPE TO HEAR FROM HIM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH A POSITIVE ANSWER AS TO WHETHER HE AND THE CABINET WILL HONOR THEIR OATH TO THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,” SHE WROTE. “IF THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT LEAVE OFFICE IMMINENTLY AND WILLINGLY, THE CONGRESS WILL PROCEED WITH OUR ACTION,” SHE WARNED.
It’s unclear if Pence and his cabinet will take such a dramatic and destabilizing act in the final two weeks of Trump’s presidency.
At least two cabinet members and multiple staff members have quit in protest over the president’s handling of the deadly riot which killed five people. White House senior counselor Hope Hicks is also reportedly heading for the exits.
A growing number of Democrats, including House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) have announced their support for impeaching Trump as early as next week, but any move is likely to follow the same fate as the impeachment of Trump last year over the Ukraine pressure scandal
