President Donald Trump highlighted in one of his tweets the 95% approval he enjoys among his Republican colleagues.
Contrary to what the Democrats might have assumed at the start, their controversial impeachment inquiry against Trump has strongly united Republicans, and moreover, many Democrats disappointed by their party’s recent actions would now be Democrats for Trump.
In the most recent developments in this process, the House Judiciary Committee voted on Dec. 13 to file the two impeachment articles for alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Faced with this, the White House called the whole thing a “farce.”
“This desperate charade of an impeachment inquiry in the House Judiciary Committee has reached its shameful end,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said, Fox News quoted.
“The president looks forward to receiving in the Senate the fair treatment and due process, which continues to be disgracefully denied to him by the House,” Grisham added.
Indeed, it is to be expected that the majority of Republican senators will put an end to the unpopular impeachment, where no evidence against President Trump was presented.
Legal proceedings involving Democrats are likely to result from irregularities reported by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who revealed “numerous and serious errors and omissions” as well as “serious performance failures” by the FBI, led by James Comey Jr., in connection with the investigation into the false collusion with Russia in 2016.
This investigation was also driven by Democrats, and after two years of work and $32 million in expenses, special attorney Robert Mueller found no evidence that President Trump had committed any crime.
