Our Take: Democrats Put Their Political Agenda Over America’s Success
Democrats have made it clear now, with no room left for doubt. They do not care about the roaring economy. They do not care about the numerous successfully-renegotiated trade deals that benefit American workers. They do not care about the unprecedented success of various peace negotiations in North Korea, Syria, and other regions of the world.
All that matters to them is that all of these things happened because of President Donald J. Trump. They will never support anything that he does, and they will stop at nothing to remove him from office for no reason whatsoever.

Breitbart: House Democrats Pass Partisan Impeachment Process Resolution in Face of Bipartisan Opposition
By Sean Moran
House Democrats passed a resolution Thursday to formalize the rules and proceedings regarding their impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
The House Democrats passed H. Res. 660 resolution 232-196, that would establish the rules and proceedings surrounding impeachment.
The vote featured two Democrats, most likely Reps. Van Drew (D-NJ) and Collin Peterson (D-MN), who voted against the resolution. No Republicans voted for the resolution, in a show of Republican support for the president and against the impeachment inquiry.
Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) voted for the impeachment process resolution.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has insisted for weeks the House had no constitutional requirement to vote on a bill that would authorize an impeachment inquiry.
However, she relented after facing criticism from the media and Republicans, who have argued the impeachment inquiry breaks with precedents such as the Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton impeachment inquiries.
The resolution has engendered criticism from some swing district House Democrats. Rep. Van Drew (D-NJ), a freshman Democrat, said that he would not vote the resolution because impeachment would “not be good Democrats of Republicans.”
Republicans and Democrats delivered passionate speeches before the House vote.
House Speaker Pelosi said “nobody” comes to Congress to impeach a president.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said the Democrats have pursued “Soviet-style rules” with their impeachment inquiry.
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) chastised the House Democrats for focusing on investigating President Trump and his administration while doing little to pass substantial legislation.
McCarthy said that Congress has delivered “more subpoenas” than they have passed “laws.”
The California conservative said Democrats have pursued an agenda “devoid of solutions.”
Rep. McCarthy also said Democrats have moved towards impeaching Trump because “they’re scared they can’t beat him on the ballot box.”
- The resolution gives authority to the House Intelligence Committee that it has never had before.
- The resolution does not provide the Republican minority equal subpoena power.
- The resolution dilutes minority powers over the release of Intelligence Committee transcripts.
- The resolution does not compel the release of past testimony.
- The resolution restricts the president’s right to be represented.
Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), a House Freedom Caucus member, said this “resolution for a sham impeachment process is a farce.”
