This past Tuesday, top Democrats unveiled official Articles of Impeachment against Trump which are based on two charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Not long after that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a press conference announcing that the House Democrats and the White House had reached an agreement to update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
As we all know, the charges unveiled this past Tuesday have now been voted upon and the House passed the Articles of Impeachment — Trump will indeed become the 3rd “president” in American history to be impeached.
Since that became an actual reality and not just a “hoax” as it’s been called by Trump and his followers for months and months, our so-called “president” and his cronies have been trying to find ways to undermine the work of House Democrats, especially Speaker Pelosi.
Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) alleged that Pelosi waited to announce her support for the historic United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA) trade deal until Democrats unveiled articles of impeachment in what he claims is “an attempt to provide cover for members of her caucus in swing districts that supported President Trump in 2016.”
In a press conference on Tuesday, McCarthy stated:
‘If you need any more evidence of how unpopular impeachment is, watch the two press conferences today. After announcing impeachment within less than an hour, the Speaker finally relented and said she would bring USMCA up. She has held it for more than a year making America weaker in our negotiations with China, our No. 1 and No. 2 traders, with Mexico and Canada was being held up within our own agreement.
‘But those who are vulnerable in this vote for impeachment continued to make the argument, as the rest of America was too. At no time when she would bring this bill up was there ever fear of it not passing, but the only reason she finally relented was because of the unpopularity of impeachment itself.
Speaker Pelosi’s office denies the allegations as “bogus,” stating:
‘Ambassador Lighthizer is signing the agreement today in Mexico so that proves McCarthy’s point is bogus.’
We have to be vigilant that we research and inspect every piece of news that we read, folks, because this administration will stop at nothing to try to sway us and change our minds about this so-called “president” and his illegal dealings. House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, is a perfect example of that.
