House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler released his entire impeachment report Monday morning; publishing the 658-page document outlining Obstruction of Congress and Abuse of Power charges against President Trump.
“Trump is accused, in the first article, of abusing his presidential power by asking Ukraine to investigate his 2020 rival Joe Biden while holding military aid as leverage, and, in the second, of obstructing Congress by blocking the House’s efforts to probe his actions,” reports Fox News.
“President Trump has realized the Framers’ worst nightmare. He has abused his power in soliciting and pressuring a vulnerable foreign nation to corrupt the next United States Presidential election by sabotaging a political opponent and endorsing a debunked conspiracy theory promoted by our adversary, Russia,” the committee wrote.
“Other Presidents have recognized their obligation to provide information to Congress under these circumstances,” the report states. “President Trump’s stonewall, by contrast, was categorical, indiscriminate, and without precedent in American history.”

ABSENT ADAM: Rep. Collins Rips Schiff for Skipping Impeachment Hearings, Says ‘Hiding Behind Staff’
GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed the Democrats’ never-ending impeachment fantasy Monday morning; blasting Intel Chair Adam Schiff for skipping the hearings while opting to “hide behind his staff.”
“At the end of the day, all of this is about — is about a clock and a calendar because (Democrats) can’t get over the fact Donald Trump is president of the United States and they don’t have a candidate that they think can beat him,” Collins told the House Judiciary Committee
Collins stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night following a day of heated impeachment testimony on Capitol Hill; saying Republicans “have the facts” while Democrats “have only hatred.”
“There’s no fact witnesses, we have three people who hate Donald Trump. Why were they even there?” asked Hannity.
“They were there because Jerry Nadler had to figure out something to do. He has no plan, the clock and the calendar, not the facts are driving this… We have the facts on our side, all they have is hatred of President Trump,” said Collins.
“When you’ve got facts on your side, it’ll win every time,” he added.

'FANTASY ISLAND': Doug Collins RIPS Nadler to His Face, Says Dems ‘Lost in Impeachment Oz’
GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed Congressman Jerrold Nadler during fiery hearings on Capitol Hill Thursday; saying House Democrats are “lost in impeachment Oz” and are unable to “find their way out of the mess.”
“Today’s ambiguity is a product of the chairman’s own making because there is an easy way to know exactly whether this committee is in #impeachment proceedings: It’s called a vote. A vote of the full House of Representatives,” posted Collins on social media.
“Democrats followed the yellow brick road, and now they’re fully lost in impeachment Oz—try as they might, they can’t find their way out of the mess they’ve made because they think ‘words don’t matter,’” he added.

House Democrats voted Thursday to officially unveil their “guidelines” surrounding an investigation into whether they will recommend filing articles of impeachment against President Trump.
The proposal left most lawmakers -including many Democrats- confused and bewildered as to what the resolution actually means.
“Some call this process an impeachment inquiry. Some call it an impeachment investigation. There is no legal difference between these terms, and I no longer care to argue about the nomenclature,” Nadler said as he opened the hearing. “But let me clear up any remaining doubt: The conduct under investigation poses a threat to our democracy. We have an obligation to respond to this threat. And we are doing so.”
GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed Nadler’s inquiry, saying his Committee has “become a giant Instagram filter … it’s put in there to look like something, but it’s really not.”
“My colleagues know very well they don’t have the votes to authorize impeachment proceedings on the House floor, but they want to impeach the president anyway,” Collins said. “So, they are pretending to initiate impeachment.”
“Under these procedures, when we have finished these hearings and considered as much evidence we are able to gather, we will decide whether to refer articles of impeachment to the House floor,” Nadler said in his opening statement.
