With Michael Cohen having recently attempted to torpedo President Trump in front of the Senate and the nation, the other side of Congress smells blood in the water.
To be fair, democratic politicians have long been looking for an excuse to participate in some sort of feeding frenzy against the President, having broached the subject of impeachment even before Donald J. Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of these United States. Cohen was just the “chum”, if you will, that piqued the pedantic fervor of the left.
Now, in a stunning move, members of the House of Representatives are going for the jugular, opening up pathways to charge the President with obstruction of justice.
The House Judiciary Committee will seek documents from more than 60 people and organizations as it begins investigations into possible obstruction of justice and abuse of power by President Donald Trump, the panel’s chairman said on Sunday.
Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told ABC’s “This Week” the panel wanted documents from the Department of Justice, the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, among others.
“We are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption … and into obstruction of justice,” Nadler said. “It’s our job to protect the rule of law.”
And Nadler is far too sure of his maneuver.
“It’s very clear that the president obstructed justice,” Nadler said. He said it was too soon to consider whether impeachment should be pursued, however.
“Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen,” he said.
Of course, poll after poll has shown that Americans are uninterested in the possibility of sending the President packing, or to the penitentiary.
