During Wednesday night’s House Judiciary Committee’s Articles of Impeachment markup meeting, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) reminded Americans about the great lengths Democrats have gone through to impeach President Donald Trump.
He made one thing very clear: the entire impeachment shenanigans aren’t about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky or asking him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
“This is not about Ukraine. Facts are on the president’s side. Zelensky said he wasn’t pressured. Ukrainians didn’t even know aid was held at the time of the call, and most importantly, they did nothing to get the aid released,” Jordan explained. “This is about one basic fact: the Democrats have never accepted the will of the American people… The attacks on the president started before the election.”
He recounted numerous instances Democrats took aim at Trump, like when Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the president “is an imposter” or when the FBI opened their investigation into the Trump campaign using the biased Steele dossier.
“They lied to the [FISA] Court 17 times. Didn’t tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was desperate to stop Trump. Didn’t tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was working for the Clinton campaign. Didn’t tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier had been fired by the FBI for leaking information to the press and the FBI continued the investigation,” Jordan said.
