Has the House of Representatives Already Started Impeachment Hearings?

Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi has been adamant that she does not want to start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. However, as Rep. Jim Jordan accurately notes, the House has, in fact, already begun impeachment hearings — they’re just being called something different.

Instead of being honest with the general public, Democrats are using their control of the House to mask their “fishing expedition” by calling the hearings “investigations” instead of what they are.

It’s hard not to view the Judiciary hearings as “pre-impeachment” hearings when taking an honest look at them. As President Trump recently noted, the Democrats on the committee are handing out subpoenas like cookies, calling for literally anyone and everyone who has had a fairly close relationship with the current president to come in and testify.

Those who refuse to give in to the Democrats’ demands, such as Attorney General Bill Barr, find themselves held in contempt by the committee, as do those who are unable to testify due to the fact that the President has not given them permission to share the information the Democrats want to hear.

At the same time, the Democratic representatives on the Judiciary Committee have found no shortage of potential candidates to harass. When former presidential aide Hope Hicks was called to testify, she spent an entire day in front of the Judiciary Committee only for members from both sides. Russian-American real estate developer Felix Sater is scheduled to testify in front of the committee as well, even though he has already testified in Congress a couple of years ago. Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates are also being called to testify, even though both individuals have provided ample information to Robert Mueller’s special investigative team.

It is interesting to note that there is one person that the Democrats aren’t eager to subpoena for a formal investigation: Robert Mueller. Mueller would probably know far more about the allegations that the Democrats are making against the president, having spent nearly two years and about $30 million in taxpayer money to investigate them. While Democrats held him up as a potential savior when the investigation was underway, they were naturally less than pleased with the end result of his work.

While the Democrats focus all their time and energies looking for excuses to impeach a sitting president they don’t like, millions of voters throughout the United States wonder when the lawmakers will get around to addressing important issues such as infrastructure, healthcare, and immigration.

The truth of the matter is that, while these hearings could go on for years unless the GOP retakes control of the House in 2020, most Americans aren’t paying attention to the talking heads who are still unwilling to accept that they lost the 2016 presidential election. These “pre-impeachment” hearings under a different name aren’t fooling anyone. They are only making it plain that the Democratic left is more concerned with getting back at President Trump than accomplishing anything useful.
