Tea Party Patriots Action: ‘Ready, Fire, Aim’ Is Dems’ Strategy for Dealing with Trump
Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin – reacting to news that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now wants to open an official “impeachment inquiry” to determine whether or not the House should impeach President Trump – today slammed Pelosi and other pro-impeachment Democrats, and issued the following statement:
“’Ready, fire, aim.’ That’s the Democrats’ strategy for dealing with President Trump. They’re so determined to undo the results of the 2016 election that they will stoop to any level, bar no holds, and resort to whatever chicanery is necessary to achieve their goals.
“In this case regarding a phone call between President Trump and the new president of Ukraine, no one in Congress has yet read the whistleblower’s complaint, which, CNN has now reported, is not even based on first-hand knowledge. Nor has anyone in Congress yet read the actual transcript of the call. In other words, there are no facts at all that point to a need for an impeachment inquiry,
“But Speaker Pelosi won’t let little things like facts get in the way – when there’s political hay to be made, she’ll throw the punch, whatever the consequences.
“Let’s face it – this is all political. This has nothing at all to do with national security. If it did, we would have expected to hear these screams from Democrats on Capitol Hill years ago, when then-Vice President Joe Biden was leveraging U.S. aid to Ukraine to engineer the ouster of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company on whose board his son sat. Oddly, I don’t recall hearing a peep from them at the time.
“Democrats who push to impeach the president on the basis of no evidence at all will only have themselves to blame when next year’s election results come in.”
