Impeachment Investigation Underway: Lewandowski Defends POTUS at First Hearing

  • Executive

By: Ashleigh Meyer      

In Brief:

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have begun the first of many hearings in what they are labelling an Impeachment Investigation against Donald Trump.

The Background:

The words “Russian Collusion,” which may never fully disappear from progressive media headlines, are taking center-stage once more as Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are in the process of “investigating” the president and the possibility of securing his impeachment.

The rules and proceedings for the investigation were approved last week, and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski testified today regarding the findings of the new infamous Mueller Report. Lewandowski, however, didn’t work out so well as the Committee’s first appearance, as he aggressively defended the Trump presidency, and once again claimed that there was never any collusion – only an agenda built on lies and aimed at defaming the president from day one.

Lewandowski was a key figure in the Mueller report, as he was allegedly asked by Trump to urge then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit his investigation into Russian interference with the election. Two others have been subpoenaed to testify: former White House aids Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter. They, however, have received White House orders to ignore the subpoenas. Committee investigators are considering this also to be obstruction.

House Democrats have been obsessed with carrying out this investigation, and many of their base followers want them to make good on the promise to come down hard on the president. Actually securing an impeachment, however, will be very difficult, and the investigation has been met with opposition and concern from moderate Democrats and junior leftist lawmakers who fear that it is a waste of time and a distraction from other accomplishments.

Ultimately, the findings of the Mueller report are clear: Russia had an interest in getting Donald Trump elected to the presidency, but there is absolutely no evidence of Trump or his campaign working with Russian affiliates to achieve that goal.

Notable Quotes

“It is now clear the investigation was populated by many Trump haters who had their own agenda — to try and take down a duly elected president of the United States.”
