House vows to continue impeachment probes regardless of Senate outcome
Lawyers for the House told a federal court on Monday that lawmakers will continue their impeachment investigation even after the House votes later this week to impeach President Donald Trump.

Since the Democrats have essentially abdicated doing anything other than trying to undo the 2016 election and removing the legally elected Republican President, the vows to continue the impeachment charade comes as no surprise.

In a filing to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, House General Counsel Douglas Letter argued that the House’s demands for grand jury materials connected to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation were still urgent because such evidence might become relevant to the Senate’s expected impeachment trial next month.

But Letter went further to note that even apart from the Senate trial, the House Judiciary Committee intends to continue its impeachment investigation arising from the Mueller probe on its own merit. That investigation began earlier this year.

“The committee has continued and will continue [its impeachment] investigations consistent with its own prior statements respecting their importance and purposes,” Letter wrote in a filing Monday as part of the House’s bid to obtain Mueller’s grand-jury evidence.

The House is expected to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment — one charging Trump with abuse of power and another with obstruction of Congress. The articles are focused primarily on Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals.

Democrats had strongly considered charging Trump with obstruction of justice based on Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Monday’s filing indicates that Democrats are keeping that option available even after the House’s impeachment process concludes this week.

Letter’s suggestion that the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment investigation is ongoing cites a report released earlier Monday by the panel outlining the impeachment case against Trump. In that report, Democrats argued that Trump committed criminal bribery and wire fraud when he pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rivals.

But the panel also emphasized that it had been stymied by Trump in its effort to obtain testimony from Mueller’s central witness, former White House counsel Don McGahn, as well as its bid to access Mueller’s grand jury materials. The chief judge of the D.C. District Court sided with House Democrats in the initial case, but the Justice Department has appealed that ruling.

To say this was totally expected is an understatement.

Democrats have called for the impeachment of Donald Trump even before the man had the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.  One recently elected Representative going so far as to say:

" ‘Baby, they don’t,’ because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”

Nancy Pelosi has been quoted as saying the current impeachment has been going on for the last two and a half years.  

At Politico’s Women Rule Summit in Washington, when asked about criticisms of “the speed” of the House Democrats impeachment, Pelosi responded, “Speed? It’s been going on 22 months—two and a half years, actually.”

Many House Democrats have said that they have seen the evidence with their own eyes.

Here's just one pathetic example:

"Well, it's the evidence that I've reviewed on the classified side," Swalwell said.

So, to the Democrats and other Trump haters, please, continue your nonsense.   It will give me great pleasure to see you continue to make abject fools of yourselves and lose not only more Representatives to the Republican side, but a multitude of voters tired of your petulant, on your back foot stomping temper tantrums.

All of you are the best things that will have happened to help get President Trump and a majority of Republicans in both houses of Congress (re-)elected in 2020.

Great news.   I adore that you want to see the Democrats eviscerate themselves on continually conjuring up rabbits to chase down rabbit holes only to be chased out by the foxes in the den they just invaded.

Democrats are their own worst enemies today.  Hell, even in 'town halls' where they're getting lambasted by the people that vote for them they still hang their hats on impeachment, contrary to what the people that put them in office want.  Now, do you really think that they will retain their seat in the House of Representatives after the 2020 election?

Another example of the productivity of Congress. They should all give back their salaries, at minimum.

Wouldn't do any good. They get plenty of "perks"; cushy jobs at think tanks or on company boards; and campaign contributions from PAC's and lobbyists that the salary is just a minor bonus to them.

They should just stay home.  At least then we wouldn't be paying to fly them back and forth all the time.  Their salaries are a pittance compared to the other expenses they have us pay.

...."continue impeachment probes regardless of Senate outcome"

Says it all. They can't accept the 2016 election results and will continue to not accept the outcome. And the GOP is the ones who can't accept results?

Gotta LMMFAO. Look in the mirror liberals/democrats. You, once again, display the qualities that you supposedly disdain.

They won't accept the 2020 elections either.   That in and of itself is sufficient reason to kick all the Democrats out of office in 2020.  If they retain the House, we'll have to endure 'impeachment' garbage until January 2025 when Trump finishes his second term.
