Opinion: The Faces of Hate - Articles of Impeachment Released By House Democrats

Dec 10, 2019 03:31PM ● By Flint Zerangue, Sr.
After what will go down in history as the most partisan and brazen attempt to remove a duly elected U.S. President on unsubstantiated alligations of high crimes and misdemeanors, on Tuesday, House Democrats introduced two articles of impeachment against President Trump alleging "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" in regards to his dealings with Ukraine.

With the announcement, President Trump becomes only the fourth U.S. President in history to face a serious threat of impeachment.

Following the House Judiciary Committee's release of the articles of impeachment, Congressman Clay Higgins 
(R-LA) made the following statement.

“These articles of impeachment are no surprise. Democrats are unhinged. Triggered. They’ve been charging toward impeachment since President Trump was first elected. This was an investigation in search of a crime. The outcome was predetermined long ago. Democrats are moving forward in the absence of any direct evidence, driven by deep hatred for President Trump. Have faith. Our Republic shall prevail. This attack from within, this effort to overturn the 2016 election... will be soundly defeated. The American people will remember what the Socialist Democrats have done.”  

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) issued the following statement in response to the House of Representatives bringing articles of impeachment against President Trump.

“House Democratic leadership turned impeachment into a series of partisan hearings searching for a crime that changed by the day. The Senate will offer President Trump a fair process, and I look forward to fairly judging the facts,” said Dr. Cassidy.
