Democrats unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday morning and are expected to bring these articles up for a vote within the House Judiciary Committee by the end of the week. The committee vote is expected to pass and House Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Jerry Nadler are then expected to push through the impeachment vote before the full House of Representative chamber some time late next week.
Despite this rapid impeachment push—the fastest in U.S. history—Democratic voters are still upset by their party leaders for giving the president “a win” by continuing to work with him to pass the new North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) replacement, the United States, Mexico, and Canada Agreement.
Check it out from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes:
Nothing more perfectly embodies the Democratic party than announcing articles of impeachment and a huge deal with the President on his single biggest priority on the same day.

Check out these reactions via Twitchy:
Pelosi at @WSJ event says “we made great progress” on USMCA deal. Lighthizer flying to Mexico tomorrow, she notes.
She says replacing Nafta "is very important."
She says people ask: Why give Trump a win? "Why wouldn’t we?” Pelosi says. "This is the right thing to do."

They didn’t even try to get a concession from the GOP in exchange for bringing this to a vote… jfc. They had leverage and then gave it away. https://t.co/DxO120nQcx

The added insult here is that Democrats consummated the deal without extracting any concessions from Trump on the matter of his unprecedented effort to nullify the impeachment power. It's just a straight up gift to him. https://t.co/H8Y7OzEP61

If only Democrats and liberals stopped celebrating Pelosi's clapbacks and "Don't mess with me" one-liners and recognized how bad she is at *stopping* Trump – before it's too late! https://t.co/iTWOg4zJBr https://t.co/ScNF4HynaY

Republicans spent years blocking everything from the Obama WH which they faced zero political consequences for. Democrats are impeaching Trump yet giving him a major policy win in the same breath. Political incompetence https://t.co/uYNPhtvEdf

And these are the people we are supposed to listen to about “electability,” right? Laughable and maddening. https://t.co/TKFNnqDMuG
