Jim Jordan Proposes One Major Change To Dems Articles Of Impeachment


House Democrats have announced late Thursday night that they will officially vote next Wednesday on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

But just hours before Democrats said they will vote to charge the president with obstruction of Congress and abuse of power -- House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan tried making a proposal to change at least one of those bogus charges.

During a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan moved to strike article one, which accuses Trump of abusing the office of the presidency, including “using his powers of his high office” to “solicit the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the” 2020 election.

“This amendment strikes article one because article one ignores the truth,” Jordan said during a hearing to markup the resolution containing the articles. 

“Four facts, five meetings. We’ve talked about it for five months. There have been four facts that have not changed, will never change, and we’ve known it since Sept. 25 when the call transcript was released,” he added.

“The call transcript shows no quid pro quo. What’s interesting is the day the transcript came out, even Chairman Nadler said there was no quid pro quo. We know second that the two individuals on the call—President Zelensky, President Donald Trump—have said no pushing and linking between money and an announcement of an investigation,” he continued.

Jordan then tore apart Democrats entire case point by point.

The Ohio Republicans noted there was no announcement by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that Ukraine was launching an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

He also said there were five meetings held between U.S. officials and Zelensky and in none of them was the matter of aid to Ukraine broached.

“Article one in this resolution ignores the truth, ignores the facts, ignores what happened and what has been laid out for the American people over the last three weeks. So I hope that this committee will come to its senses,” Jordan said.

Rhode Island Democrat Rep. David Cicilline took issue with the amendment Jordan introduced, asserting that Trump “hired Rudy Giuliani to go to Ukraine and lead this scheme to smear Vice President Biden.”

URGENT POLL: Do you support Trump against Dem impeachment efforts?

Unsurprising to many, Jordan’s proposed amendment was struck down because Democrats control a majority on the committee.
