Detroit News Editorial: Stevens, Slotkin jumped the gun
Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin joined the socialist left in calling for impeachment. Now, they’re already facing blowback from folks back home.
The Editorial Board of the Detroit News published a blistering editorial today, slamming the Democrats for “jumping the gun on the impeachment inquiry” before even taking the time to get all the facts.
Sadly for Slotkin and Stevens, it’s too late to go back now, having already made it clear their blind hatred of this President takes priority over their constituents … or even the basic decency of taking the time to get the facts.
In case you missed it…
Editorial: Pelosi jumped gun on impeachment probe
September 25, 2019
The American people deserve to see the evidence regarding what allegedly transpired between President Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president. Yet before the facts were known, Congress officially pursued an impeachment probe. And that’s alarming.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally succumbed to pressure from fellow Democrats —many of them freshman members — and announced Tuesday she’d allow the inquiry to proceed. This is only the fourth time in U.S. history that a formal impeachment inquiry has been brought against a president. It’s extremely serious.
Pelosi acted on unverified accusations made public by second-hand sources, choosing not to wait for the Trump administration to release the transcript of the July phone call in question, which it did Wednesday morning. Congress has not seen the full whistleblower report that alleges Trump attempted to pressure Ukraine into investigating allegations that Joe Biden used threats to quash an investigation by that country into his son Hunter’s business dealings there. …
But until the public has all the facts, and fully understands what happened and why, it is too early to pronounce judgment.
Congress should have waited, too.
