BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Pelosi Democrats Changed House Rules on Impeachment on Day ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint Filed — Pulled Authority Away from Full House!

Posted on 08 October 2019

As Joe Hoft reported earlier today —  The House Impeachment Rules were updated on August 12, 2019.

This is the exact same day that the partisan CIA whistleblower filed his complaint – August 12, 2019.

Here is the updated document.

The Conservative Treehouse reported on this last night.

As noted, the impeachment process document was updated on August 12, 2019.

We now have the exact changes that were made from the previous version.

The most obvious change is that Pelosi moved the responsibility and control from the entire House of Representatives to the House Judiciary Committee.

Here is the old language:

The two most recent resolutions adopted by the House to authorize an impeachment investigation were taken up by unanimous consent at the request of the Rules Committee chair.15 Rather than convene a committee meeting to order the resolutions reported with a quorum present, the chair asked unanimous consent that the House discharge the Rules Committee and agree to the resolution. Both of these resolutions concerned federal judges, and they were agreed to without debate.

In the case of the most recent authorization of a presidential impeachment inquiry, the full House did debate the resolution.

The new version created by House Democrats and published on August 12th gives the authority and control to the House Judiciary Committee.

(Changes in bold)

The two most recent resolutions adopted by the House to authorize an impeachment investigation were taken up by unanimous consent at the request of the Rules Committee chair. Rather than convene a committee meeting to order the resolutions reported with a quorum present, the chair asked unanimous consent that the House discharge the Rules Committee and agree to the resolution. Both of these resolutions concerned federal judges, and they were agreed to without debate.

In the three previous instances of judicial impeachments, however, the House did not approve a resolution explicitly authorizing an impeachment inquiry. The Rules of the House since 1975 have granted committees the power to subpoena witnesses and materials, administer oaths, and meet at any time within the United States—powers that were previously granted through resolutions providing blanket investigatory authorities that were agreed to at the start of a Congress or through authorizing resolutions for each impeachment investigation. In two of the three recent cases, the House agreed to separate resolutions to allow committee counsel to take affidavits and depositions.

If the House does approve an authorizing resolution, then in addition to the Rules Committee, the Judiciary Committee can report an original resolution authorizing an impeachment investigation if impeachment resolutions have been referred to the committee. In the case of the most recent authorization of a presidential impeachment inquiry, the Judiciary Committee reported such a resolution, and the full House debated it.

And here is a visual comparison of the changes that were made by Democrats to the document on August 12th, the same day that the whistleblower filed his complaint!

The Democrats took the power and responsibility away from the full House and put it into the hands of the House Judiciary committee.

It is also noteworthy that the new document states that the Judiciary Committee holds the investigation, hearings and markup of articles of impeachment.

However the current impeachment sham is being held by the most dishonest Representative in Congress today- Democrat Adam Schiff – who oversees the Democrat’s Intelligence Committee, not Judiciary

Next it

President Trump is an innocent man.  He is doing great things for America.  Across the Union Americans are outraged with the corrupt, if not criminal, actions of the current Democrat House members.  Americans will not stand for this.  We demand justice and the rule of law, not the destruction to the Constitution that has been going on for the past decade under Democrats in Congress and their President Obama!
