Today the House Majority unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump.

On today’s Jay Sekulow Live we discussed the articles of impeachment and the impeachment process.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said during today’s announcement:

Today, in service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Committee on the Judiciary is introducing two articles of impeachment, charging the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, with committing high crimes and misdemeanors.

We do not take this action lightly, but we have taken an oath to defend the constitution, and unlike Pres. Trump, we understand that our duty, first and foremost, is to protect the constitution and to protect the interests of the American people. That is why we must take this solemn step today.

They just announced that they’ll be voting on two articles of impeachment. The Judiciary Committee will have a vote, probably on Thursday, and the full House will probably vote next week.

Chairman Nadler said that there are two counts reaching “high crime and misdemeanor”. Let me just say for the record, that in reviewing the articles of impeachment that have been drafted and proposed by the Judiciary Committee: They are neither high crimes nor misdemeanors.

Abuse of power, the way they’ve defined it here, doesn’t even constitute a crime. Abuse of power is exactly what here?

Then there’s the obstruction of Congress. The President was exercising constitutional privileges that were being tested in court. The President has the right to do that. You cannot be penalized for exercising your constitutional privileges. There’s a long line of Supreme Court cases that support  that argument.

So where is the beef here? This is a political beef, which we knew exactly what this was going to be when it started. That’s precisely what it is. Now the question in the body politic is how does this move forward? This will go  to the Senate, assuming it gets passed in the House next week. I assume it will.

Look what’s absent: $40-million dollars.. What do I mean when I say $40-million dollars? That’s $40-million dollars  Bob Mueller spent on his special counsel investigation. There’s no allegation that there was obstruction of justice. Remember potential ten counts of obstruction of justice? They’re not in the impeachment articles.

There’s no Russia collusion conspiracy because Bob Mueller found that there was none. There’s a throwaway line about foreign governments being enticed, but that’s not even a specific reference to anything.

What you have here is a political process that’s now in high gear..

You can listen to the entire episode here.

Restore the Constitution. Don’t Shred It.
