    Democrats expected to unveil articles of impeachment against Trump, focusing on abuse of power, obst

    Democrats are expected to unveil two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday that will focus on abuse of power and obstructing Congress, and would be voted on by the full House next week, according to three officials familiar with the matter.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) met with Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and other committee chairmen Monday night after a nine-hour hearing in which a Democratic counsel laid out the party’s case against Trump. The three officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private talks, cautioned that the plan had not been finalized.

    Leaving a meeting with Pelosi, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.) told reporters that he and the chairmen of other House committees would announce specific articles at a news conference at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

    snip.


    So the focus narrows and the plot thickens. No bribery, no obstruction of justice.

    Considering where they could have gone...it's narrower. It's all for show regardless.

    I think it’s a political suicide - Democrat’s failed to produce a single witness with real smoking gun. Nobody could say they’ve heard themselves that Trump held aid in exchange for investigation.

    2 scoops is outrageous. Somewhere someone deserving got none as a result of that over the top gluttony. Heaven only knows what Trump may have done with the Gummy Bears. You'd better believe children will be in tears Christmas morning because of that shortage. I don't even want to get started on the soy beans.

    Ironic that the people who have decried that Trump has lowered standards have now lowered the bar for impeachment. For all intents and purposes the bar is now if the sitting president loses the house there will be calls for impeachment based on we don't like that person.
