On September 24, 2019, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set in motion a precedent that she just might end up deeply regretting in 2022.
After all, who can forget her infamous impeachment inquiry, which curiously took place at the same time that coronavirus is now widely reported to have first begun circulating in China?
Had Pelosi and the rest of Democrats focused on the rising crisis regarding the virus in China instead of their ridiculous witch hunt regarding Trump, the pandemic may have turned out very differently not only for the United States, but also the rest of the world.
Of course, however, a different outcome of the pandemic may well have led to a different outcome in the 2020 presidential election, so it’s not difficult to envision why Pelosi decided to focus on the ridiculousness below instead.
“This week, the president has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically … The action of – the actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and betrayal of the integrity of our elections …
Therefore, today, I am announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. I am directing our six committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry … The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law.” [Source: Fox News]
Ah. So, in other words, Trump declard that he would withhold $1B in vital military aid to Ukraine if the nation failed to fire a specific prosecutor, notably a prosecutor that was investigating Trump’s son’s shady dealings in Ukraine, including serving on an energy board for a company that he knows nothing about.
Oh, wait! Trump didn’t do that, but Biden did. Who could forget the then-vice president threatening Ukraine openly, all over an investigator who dared to look into the shady operations of a Biden-affiliated enterprise?
It is still remarkable that Pelosi was somehow able to impeach Trump for something Biden did.
That said, Senator Ted Cruz has watched all of these proceedings with marked amusement, and he’s just reminded them of one of the oldest realities in human existence: Two can play that game.
“Whether it’s justified or not, the Democrats weaponized impeachment. They used it for partisan purposes to go after [former President Donald] Trump because they disagreed with him. One of the real disadvantages of doing that is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” [Source: Newsmax]
“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” Gotta love Cruz’s frankness.
Also gotta love the fact that Republicans would have vastly more justification for impeaching Biden than Democrats could ever dream of for impeaching Trump.
Which Cruz details at length.
“I think there will be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings … I think there are potentially multiple grounds to consider impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border. His decision to just defy federal immigration laws and allow 2 million people to come here.” [Source: OANN]
The Biden administration has recklessly endangered Americans inside and outside the border, and its representatives generally show little regard for the well-being of the nation.
In fact, some Republican representatives have already filed effectively symbolic articles of impeachment against Biden, namely over his incomprehensible withdrawal from Afghanistan.
This past September, two years after Pelosi’s bogus inquiry into trump, Representative Bob Giggs filed articles of impeachment over Afghanistan, with clear cause.
“I filed articles of impeachment against @POTUS based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties … There are dynamics in Congress preventing this from being debated. But I could not stand by while Biden commits flagrant & deliberate violations of his oath of office.” [Source: Fox News]
With any luck, the “dynamics in Congress” will transform in 2022 with a massive red wave … Clearing the way for an imminent impeachment of Biden.
