House Dems Wear All Black Because Of How "Sad" They Are About Impeachment

It's no secret that House Democrats have been excited about impeaching President Donald Trump since the day he stepped in office but now that the impeachment day is finally here, certain Democratic representatives are wearing all black to portray how "somber" they are now that they're finally voting to impeach the President.
One of these Democrats is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who wore all black to "signal it is a somber day."
“Pelosi is wearing black. One of her colleagues told me several of the female Democrats did that intentionally to signal it is a somber day,” CNN’s Dana Bash reported.
Pelosi also told Bash that she was "sad" about impeaching President Trump. The comments are quite hard to believe.
She wants the public to see Democrats as taking this moment seriously and not be seen as cheering the President’s impeachment, members say,” said CNN's Manu Raju. This is a much different narrative than the Democratic Party has been pushing for the past few years considering their moto has been, "Impeach the Motherf***er!"
On Tuesday, President Trump absolutely shredded Pelosi in a six-page letter where he accused the Speaker of cheapening "the importance" of impeachment.
"I write to express my strongest and most powerful protest against the partisan impeachment crusade being pursued by the Democrats in the House of Representatives," the President started. "This impeachment represents and unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history."
At one point during the six page letter, President Trump scorched Speaker Pelosi for "offending Americans of faith" by constantly saying that she prays for him.
"You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying 'I pray for the President,' when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense," President Trump says in the letter. "It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!"
President Trump later noted that the Articles of Impeachment that House Democrats introduced "include no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses whatsoever."
He also mentioned that Pelosi and her fellow House Democrats have "cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!"
"By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy," President Trump said.
President Trump and the GOP are standing united and are making it increasingly clear that they will do whatever it takes to stop impeachment in the Senate.
On Tuesday during a speech on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested that he may dismiss the articles of impeachment against the President directly after the opening arguments.
The announcement by McConnell came shortly after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer proposed that the Senate should call in more witnesses who didn't partake in the House impeachment inquiry.
McConnell shredded Schumer while reacting to his proposal, saying that the Minority leader was attempting to make “Chairman Schiff’s sloppy work more persuasive.”
Check out what Breitbart reported:
McConnell accused Schumer of going straight to the news media with his proposals rather than speaking to him in person, as Senate leaders had done in the past.
He also noted that Schumer had misquoted the Constitution. The Democrat leader had claimed the Constitution gave the Senate “sole Power of Impeachment,” whereas Article I, Section 3 actually states, “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”
