Pelosi’s Impeachment Inquiry Falls To Pieces 24 Hours After She Announces It
It only took less than 24 hours for Nancy Pelosi’s reasoning for an impeachment inquiry to be destroyed by the Department of Justice. Pelosi had announced at 5PM ET on Tuesday that she was going forward with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump based on possible malfeasance concerning a phone call with the new Ukrainian President.
By 3PM ET on Wednesday, the DOJ had concluded there was no malfeasance concerning that phone call with the new Ukrainian President.
The DOJ confirmed that there was no Quid Pro Quo, no pressure, no campaign law violation, and no whistle-blower law violation. Nothing. Zip. Nada.
As Pelosi has spent almost 3 years now telling her fellow Democrats that impeachment was a bad idea, I am sure she is now fuming at the many Democrats that pushed her into this catastrophe!
It all started last week when the media began reporting that the White House had illegally held back a ‘whistle-blower report’ from Congress. The media was reported that the person was incredibly alarmed about a phone call where they had heard the President pressuring the new Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden’s Ukrainian scandal, threatening to withhold US funding unless he did.
It did not take long before it was reported that the person had NOT heard the call and was reporting as a third party. Both President Trump as well as the President of the Ukraine denied there was any sort of pressure.
But the Democrats went on a frenzy not rivaled by a school of piranha going after a sirloin. By Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi was declaring an impeachment inquiry, declaring:
“Today I’m announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry!”
“I can say with authority the Trump administration’s actions undermine both our national security and our intelligence and the protections of the whistleblowers,” Pelosi said. “The actions of the Trump presidency revealed dishonorable facts of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections.”
The following day, the President released the transcript and we discovered that the DOJ has known about the call for weeks. The transcript of the call proved the whole issue to be sensationalism at it’s finest.
The DOJ, by mid-afternoon had declared the President basically innocent of all charges.
The Washington Times reports:
The Justice Department’s Criminal Division has already investigated President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian president about Joseph R. Biden and concluded Mr. Trump did not violate campaign finance laws, officials announced Wednesday.
And a separate division of the department has also ruled that the administration did not break the law by failing to quickly share a whistleblower’s complaint with Congress, saying the matter didn’t meet the definition of “urgent” that would trigger the law.
The department also released the transcript of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, showing the American leader did talk about Mr. Biden, the former vice president and current Democratic presidential front-runner, and his son, Hunter Biden. But Mr. Trump did not threaten to withhold military aid as some have alleged.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky: "Nobody pushed me."
President Trump: "There was no pressure."

The ‘whistle-blower report’ is said to contain a number of complaints. If this phone call was the biggie, then I cannot wait to see what it includes.
But one thing for sure, now that the phone call has proven to be a nothing-burger, the lefts new mantra will be: Well let’s see what else sensational we can find in this report!
Popcorn, folks, Popcorn!
