Brooks: I knew the Democrats’ impeachment push was coming months ago
Democrats appear to be speeding towards impeachment at a break-neck pace. This is not happening over Russia stealing our elections or violations of the emoluments clause. It’s over a phone call where the president of the United States spoke to the president of Ukraine.
Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) spoke to WVNN radio’s “The Dale Jackson Show” from the Federation of American Immigration Reform’s Hold Their Feet to the Fire radio row event and said he saw this coming “about four or five months ago.”
Brooks believes this is just another incident where House Democrats are going to scream for impeachment and, in this case, actually move on the issue no matter what.
“The Democrats, slowly but surely, were going to push impeachment regardless if the evidence was there,” he outlined.
Brooks added that the facts and evidence don’t support impeachment, saying that won’t stop House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from continuing to attack this president no matter what.
“The Democrat Party’s base vote demands impeachment,” he explained. “They were going to do it come hell or high water, regardless of whether the facts or evidence support it.”
Brooks said he expects Democrats to come up empty because as of this moment, there is zero evidence that the president has committed “bribery, treason and high crimes and misdemeanors as defined by law.”
The congressman from Huntsville tweeted about this as well.
The Constitution states a president can only be impeached for ‘Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’ Hatred, dislike or a desire for Socialism & Open Borders do not support gutting the people’s will and overturning properly held elections.

Regardless of Brooks’ beliefs on the matter, both Alabama’s Democrats in Congress appear ready to join their colleagues in Washington, D.C. and attempt to have President Donald Trump removed from office.
The events surrounding the whistleblower complaint are the final straw in a series of troubling and disconcerting actions by President Trump and his administration.

The allegation that the President withheld military aid in order to pressure Ukraine-even indirectly-to investigate a political opponent is a very serious matter. It's critical to nat'l security for the House & Senate to perform their constitutional oversight role & investigate
