After 85 days of hearings, investigations, and “debate,” among the House of Representatives, Wednesday evening, the full House voted on Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Article One Abuse of Power.
The vote on Article One Abuse of Power were 230 for, 197 against, and 1 present vote.
Article Two Obstruction of Congress.
The adopted Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump makes him the 3rd President of the U.S. to be impeached in the House.
The Articles of Impeachment will now move to the Senate where a trial of some sort is expected early next year.
Having now been Impeached by the House the President has tweeted 11 times and retweeted 46 times.
The he’s proud the Republican’s want a King tweet.
100% Republican Vote. That’s what people are talking about. The Republicans are united like never before!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
That’s not what people are talking about.
Everyone seems to be posting screenshots of the front pages today, and so I picked up a pair of newspapers. pic.twitter.com/21TR1bUQrx— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) December 19, 2019
He sent two more tweets before he deleted the typo’d tweet.
I got Impeached last night without one Republican vote being cast with the Do Nothing Dems on their continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history. Now the Do Nothing Party want to Do Nothing with the Articles & not deliver them to the Senate, but it’s Senate’s call!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
Republican’s did cast votes, they just voted against Impeachment. Which I suppose is what he means.
There has been speculation that instead of sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for the trial to decide if the Senate will remove the now Impeached President, that the Democrats in the House will hold the Articles.
During her weekly presser Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) explained that at this time they are waiting for the Senate to determine how they plan to conduct trial in the Senate.
PELOSI: "I heard of what some of Mitch McConnell said today, & it reminded that me that our founders, when they wrote the Constitution, they suspected there could be a rogue POTUS. I don't think they suspected that we'd have a rogue POTUS & a rogue Senate leader at the same time" pic.twitter.com/T13BaIWaa5— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) December 19, 2019
“The Senate shall set the time and place of the trial.” If the Do Nothing Democrats decide, in their great wisdom, not to show up, they would lose by Default!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
As a reminder the President did not offer a defense during the House Impeachment Inquiry, even though he was invited to do so.
The all caps tweet.
PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
This is the 34th time the President has tweeted the words “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT” according to Trump Twitter Archive.
The President is a giant hypocrite tweet.
This is what the Dems are dealing with. Does anyone think this is good for the USA! https://t.co/rvY3mDo69r— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), posted a video of her grinning from ear to ear on her why to Impeach President Donald Trump.
Is it OK?
I don’t know, is it OK, that the President calls those that oppose him human scum, with our Press Secretary that we pay, defending it, by saying, yes, they are human scum?
I don’t know, is it OK, that the President just last night attacked a dead man and the dead man’s widow just before her first Christmas without her husband?
Here is Trump last night at his rally after he was impeached by the House, complaining about Debbie Dingell after all he did for her late husband John Dingell and then she voted to impeach him. He even suggests that the late Congressman is in hell-even his supporters groan. pic.twitter.com/F5xkalVZ1M— Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) December 19, 2019
See? I know it’s whataboutism, but seriously, if it’s wrong, that she is “gleeful,” at the idea of Impeaching a President, then shouldn’t there be more push-back from these same individuals regarding the behavior of the leader of the Free World?
If they want us to be outraged that the woman who on tape said “Impeach that Motherfucker,” well, they are going to have to try harder, because I simply can’t do it. I can’t blast her, now granted, I could, I could as I do the President.
So, in that vain, it isn’t okay, it’s not classy, it does not in fact make her look good or smart.
Is it UnAmerican?
Is it a crime against humanity?
No, but if you expect class, then you should show some of your own class.
The “TRUE Patriot” tweet.
Our great Congressman Gohmert is a TRUE patriot fighting back against people that must hate our Country! https://t.co/KpaWqpStpP— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
Ukraine did not interfere with our election an Op-Ed, posted on The Hill, that almost nobody in the U.S., paid attention to in 2016, does not equal the Russian interference, as they stole from an American political party to aid another American political party.
Crowdstrike is an American company founded by American’s, one of them was born in the Soviet Union, he is not Ukrainian, in fact, he is American. The debunked conspiracy that Crowdstrike framed the Russian’s for the DNC hack is just that a debunked conspiracy (NBC NEWS).
The Thank You for telling me I’m pretty tweets.
Thank you Anne! https://t.co/e0NwWJp8PH— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
Thank you Terrence! https://t.co/6qro1mI4dm— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019

The Projection tweet.
Pelosi feels her phony impeachment HOAX is so pathetic she is afraid to present it to the Senate, which can set a date and put this whole SCAM into default if they refuse to show up! The Do Nothings are so bad for our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2019
From this day onward, in history books, in books, and in articles, the President of the United States Donald Trump will have an asterisk by his name. It will be something like this:
*President Donald Trump.
The 45th President of the United States Donald Trump*
Former President Trump*
*Impeached by the House of Representatives on December 18th, 2019.
The * is forever.
Or the lines in articles will be “President Donald Trump, the 3rd American President in history to be Impeached by the House.”
Either way, it’s forever. It will carry-on, just like it has done with former President Bill Clinton.
For a bit of irony, it was 21 years ago today that President Bill Clinton* was Impeached by the House of Representatives.
"I hope there will be a constitutional and fair means of resolving this matter…meanwhile, I will continue to do the work of the American people." #OnThisDay, in 1998 the House passed two articles of impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice against President Clinton. pic.twitter.com/IqOW3ivFqZ— American History TV (@cspanhistory) December 19, 2019
