NEW: House Democrats Ramp Up Impeachment (Coup) – Prepare to Subpoena White House
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff
House Democrats on Wednesday ramped up their impeachment (coup) efforts and prepared to subpoena the White House for documents related to President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The Democrats know that they do not have a viable candidate to beat Donald Trump in 2020 so they’re going for broke and moving full steam ahead with impeachment.
Fox News reported:
The impeachment war between President Trump and House Democrats escalated dramatically on Wednesday as committee leaders prepared to subpoena the White House for documents and both sides traded fiery accusations.
Lawmakers are seeking documents “memorializing communications between President Trump and the leader of any other foreign country” that relate to Trump’s efforts to pressure the Ukrainian president. The subpoena is directed toward acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. It requests 13 separate batches of documents related to a July phone call that Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and related matters. The Oversight panel will issue the subpoena in coordination with the House intelligence and foreign affairs committees, Cummings said.
The draft subpoena for the White House — released by Cummings, Schiff, and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel — comes after the chairs issued a host of other subpoenas to key Trump administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and to individuals close to the president, like Rudy Giuliani, who played a key role in seeking information from Ukrainian officials on former Vice President Joe Biden’s dealings with the country, along with those of his son Hunter.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) held a joint press conference on Wednesday morning on their impeachment plans against President Donald Trump.
Pelosi lied to the American people and accused Trump of undermining national security and inciting violence against the Deep State CIA spy who is trying to pass himself off as a whistleblower.
“The president probably doesn’t realize how dangerous his statements are when he says he wants to expose who the whistleblower is,” Pelosi said during Wednesday’s joint impeachment presser with Schiff.
Last week Democrat chairmen of three key committees subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as part of their impeachment investigation.
Pompeo pushed back on the House Democrats on Tuesday in their committee show trials on President Trump’s impeachment.
Pompeo told Democratic Chairman Eliot Engel that no State Department officials will testify in the House show trials.
Secretary Pompeo told the Democrats, “I’m concerned with aspects of the Committee’s request that can be understood only as an attempt to intimidate, bully, and treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State.”
President Trump called the Dems’ impeachment push a coup Tuesday night in a pair of tweets.
….People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!
