During Wednesday night's House Judiciary Committee's Articles of Impeachment markup meeting, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) reminded Americans about the great lengths Democrats have gone through to impeach President Donald Trump.
He made one thing very clear: the entire impeachment shenanigans aren't about Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky or asking him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
"This is not about Ukraine. Facts are on the president's side. Zelensky said he wasn't pressured. Ukrainians didn't even know aid was held at the time of the call, and most importantly, they did nothing to get the aid released," Jordan explained. "This is about one basic fact: the Democrats have never accepted the will of the American people... The attacks on the president started before the election."
He recounted numerous instances Democrats took aim at Trump, like when Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the president "is an imposter" or when the FBI opened their investigation into the Trump campaign using the biased Steele dossier.
"They lied to the [FISA] Court 17 times. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was desperate to stop Trump. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was working for the Clinton campaign. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier had been fired by the FBI for leaking information to the press and the FBI continued the investigation," Jordan said.
There was also a time Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the Intelligence Community has "six ways from Sunday to get back at you" if you mess with them.
"The president was told he wasn't under investigation, when, in fact, they were investigating him and trying to trap him at that point," the Republican explained. "...and, of course, they continue their investigation after the inauguration."
He also reminded Americans of the resources spent on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's two-and-a-half year long probe into Russia collusion.
"19 lawyers. 48 agents. 500 warrants. 2,800 subpoenas. But zero collusion," Jordan said. "But Democrats don't care about the facts and they're never going to stop."
And, before Mueller even testified before the House Judiciary Committee, 16 Democrats on Committee voted to move forward with impeachment, "before President Trump and President Zelensky even had their call."
"They're never going to stop with their attacks because they can't stand the fact that President Trump is actually draining the swamp and doing what he said he would do and, most importantly, getting results," he explained. "Taxes cut. Regulations reduced. Economy growing at an unbelievable pace. Lowest unemployment in 50 years. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the Court. Out of the Iran deal. Embassy in Jerusalem. Hostages home from North Korea. Oh, and by the way, a new NAFTA agreement coming any day now."
But at the heart of Democrats' hatred for President Trump is their disdain for the majority of the country, those of us who make up flyover nation.
"They're never going to stop. It's not just because they don't like the president. They don't like us. They don't like the 63 million people who voted for this president, all of us in flyover country, us common folk in Ohio, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas, they don't like us," he explained. "...They don't like the president. They don't like the president's supporters and they dislike us so much they're willing to weaponize the government."
Democrats tried to use the IRS to target conservatives, then it was the FBI and now it's "the impeachment power of Congress, going after 63 million people and the guy we put in the White House."
