House Democrats Mull Second Impeachment

House Democrats may conduct a second impeachment of President Trump, according to lawyers for the Judiciary Committee.

In a Monday court filing reported by Politico, House Counsel Douglas Letter argued that they still need testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn, which may uncover new, impeachable evidence that Trump attempted to obstruct the Russiagate investigation (of a crime he didn’t commit).

“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,” reads Letter’s filing.

The Democrats also argue that “McGahn’s testimony is critical both to a Senate trial and to the Committee’s ongoing impeachment investigations to determine whether additional Presidential misconduct warrants further action by the Committee,” adding that McGahn’s testimony may also be relevant to future legislation which may stem from the details of Trump’s conduct.

And while DOJ lawyers acknowledged in a Monday brief that the legal fight over McGahn isn’t moot, the fact that the House Judiciary Committee moved forward with impeachment on a completely different matter removes the urgency to resolve their case.

“The reasons for refraining are even more compelling now that what the Committee asserted — whether rightly or wrongly — as the primary justification for its decision to sue no longer exists,” wrote lawyers for the DOJ. The agency also argues that the Mueller impeachment investigation is over, when House lawyers and lawmakers have described it as ongoing and active, according to the report.

McGahn’s participation in House impeachment proceedings was blocked by the White House, which claimed “absolute immunity” for advisers.

President Trump chimed in over Twitter following the Monday court filing, quoting “Fox and Friends” host Brian Kilmeade, who said “now all of a sudden they are saying maybe we’ll go back and visit the Mueller probe, which is absolutely unbelievable, and shows they don’t care about the American public’s tone deafness…”

DOJ attorneys argued that the upcoming Senate trial is yet another reason for the judicial branch to refrain from the case.

“If this Court now were to resolve the merits question in this case, it would appear to be weighing in on a contested issue in any impeachment trial,” wrote DOJ lawyers. “The now very real possibility of this Court appearing to weigh in on an article of impeachment at a time when political tensions are at their highest levels — before, during, or after a Senate trial regarding the removal of a President — puts in stark relief why this sort of interbranch dispute is not one that has ‘traditionally thought to be capable of resolution through the judicial process.’”

“This Court should decline the Committee’s request that it enter the fray and instead should dismiss this fraught suit between the political branches for lack of jurisdiction,” they added.

    1. When the dumbasscrats can’t get him on anything else they’ll most likely nail hom for pissing in the weeds out behind the white house!! 😥😪😞😰😒😉

  2. Put him down like a dog.

    Add on charges of extortion, double dipping, self-dealing, racketeering in addition to the abuse of the office and obstruction.

    Put the orange slut on the stand, and he’ll perjure himself until he’s behind bars for the rest of his sad worthless life.

    1. The only dogs are the liberal socialist democratic politicians and their followers that can’t accept they lost a rigged election in 2016 and will loose again in 2020 !!!

  3. When are these liberal socialist democratic politicians going to realize that there’s absolutely nothing that they can do but give up !!! They aren’t accomplishing anything whatsoever other than making themselves look exactly like what President Trump has said they were ! Completely unable to accept the fact that they lost an election that they thought they had rigged for Killery Hillary !!!

  4. Can the citizens (tax payers) say enough of this foolishness and waste of time and money and take legal action against Pelosi and the poor loosers sponsored probably by Soros? We need to move on before we destroy ourselves.

  5. Enough already. Democrats have to see they are dividing the country with their Detective Columbo nonsense..”just one more thing…” .
    Accept the fact Hillary lost, Pelosi’s impeachment was a witch hunt. Pelosi is single handedly hurting the Democratic party.

  6. THE SCHITT SHOW IS GOING INTO SYNDICATION!
    With the all star lineup
    Drunken slut Nancy piglosi
    Chuck screwmer
    Disturbin DURBIN
    Adam b schitt
    Jarrold the harold nadler
    And the clinton cartel with the obungler hiding in the shadows

  7. What more reason do we need to send Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, AOC, Omar and the rest of these America hating leftists to the political cemetery? They are ALL evil. The Democrat Party are a gang of liars, thieves and thugs.

  8. The entire Democraptic Party is Corrupt and they are trying very hard to tear down the entire Country… The Liberal, Lying Socialists are filled to their eyeballs with Trump Derangement Syndrome and won’t be happy until they make America a Third World Nation…. All of these Corrupt Democraps need to be sent home forever, as they should never be allowed to have any Political Offices in their future…

  9. Why is it that all these Radical Far Left Socialist Demoncrats don’t do the job they were elected to do ?!?! Their job and duty as our elected Representatives is to protect and serve “We The People” and do what is necessary to protect the Constitution and America !!! All this Far Left Negativism over impeaching our duly elected and very good President Trump is a total farce and scam upon “We The People” , Our Constitution and America !!! This is a total Waste of our Tax dollars and initiatives to better serve America !! However, these Radicalized individuals do not care about Our America !!! They are Socialists who want for Greed and Power is their driving force !!!

    Wake Up America !! Be very careful about what you are thinking or have come to believe !! This is America the land of the free and brave !!! These life long Bureaucrats must go by voting for new more qualified individuals who believe in Our Constitution, Our Freedoms, Our Judeo/Christian Belief, Our Personal and National Security, Our Economy and America, No muslim’s Allowed !!!

  10. The Democrats have long taken advantage of the American people. I can’t recall one single Democrat – Presidential or otherwise – who has honored their oaths of offices, have honored any of their campaign promises, or have done anything even considered in the positive for the American people. If you look back into our history of government, you can plainly see that the Democratic party has only had two major goals in their sights #1. Wealth and #2. power. If we- as Americans who believe in our Constitution and it’s values, do not stand together and put a stop to this nonsense now, then God help our children and grandchildren and their children. If we allow these socialist communist Democrats to continue in power, to upset the balance of our Republic/Democracy, then we are no better than they are and will reap what we deserve.

  11. Look like the DEMONcrat want a civil War! If it doesn’t go their way then it not right! Never seem how they can always change the rule! Since they want a war it might be coming sooner than they want it!

  12. From the beginning of Trump president. All we heard was IMPEACHED! With NOTHING FOR him to be impeached for! This is more like everything OBAMA SHOULD BE IMPEACHED ON! But everything point at everything that happened during Obama term. But why wasn’t he being investigated by the HOUSE? I keep believing it was due to him being BLACK! These DEMONcrat did NOT WANT TO HURT THEIR MAIN SUPPORTER! Who are black people!

  13. The public servants now consider themselves as the masters! The Declaration of Independence offers the remedy to their tyranny and treason. Handing over our sovereignty over to the satanists UN!

  14. In the up coming election, no issue is more important than simply defeating the Socialists. They will take.away our freedom’s throw out the Constitution , and Distroy our Democratic Republic. The best way to do this is by voting. Sad to say, every Democrat we can replace with a Conservative will be path to saving our Nation.

  15. Piling on is not politically correct, buttwipe. Sooner or later, the President and the Senate just might go to the Supreme Court and to the civil courts to put a leash on your choker and on your wallets. It’s about time the Senate go to the federal court system and the Supreme Court to force the House to move forward with this House of Representatives fiasco. And now you’re talking about the possibility of holding a second impeachment? I believe the intent of the House can be proven as a case of double jeopardy. As Dirty Harry put it: “Do you feel lucky, punk? Well do ya?”

  16. Let them do what they want. I will ignore them and everything they do. It’s like little kids having a tea party. They pour the imaginary tea and drink it. Then go and take their naps.
    On the other hand Nancy needs to clean up her district. Full of poo. Now she is taxing her people to clean it up?? That’s what she wants to do to America. Fill it with poo and tax us!!!
