Whine,whine, whine. That’s all you get from democrats today. There is no shortage of calls for the impeachment of Donald Trump but I don’t think it’s going to happen despite all caterwauling we’re hearing from the left.
For a while democrats, hearing the dog whistle, were falling all over themselves calling for Trump’s impeachment.
A growing number of Democrats running for president in 2020 say the House of Representatives should begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
The latest is Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, who declared his candidacy on Monday and who, in an interview on NPR’s Morning Edition, said, “We absolutely should be having this debate.”
Moulton said he was ready to begin impeachment proceedings last year. “Don’t tell me there’s not enough to debate impeaching the president,” Moulton said, accusing Trump of obstructing justice, violating campaign finance laws and profiting from his office, in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments Clause. “He is subject to the same laws as the rest of us are, and that’s why we should move forward with this debate.”
At a CNN town hall Monday night, other Democrats running for the nomination made similar arguments. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., renewed her call for impeachment after the redacted Mueller report was released last week. “If any other human being in this country had done what’s documented in the Mueller report,” Warren said Monday, “they would be arrested and put in jail.”
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said the Mueller report “tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice.”
Pelosi has tapped the brakes on impeachment in no small part because the country has no appetite for it. The chairwoman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee wants democrats to shut up about it.
Additionally, I don’t think democrats want all the facts out. They want the issue.
That’s all they want. They’ll continue to go on sputtering about impeachment and smearing Trump is but I don’t think anything will come of it. The plan is electoral loss by a thousand small cuts.
And of course, change the rules of elections.
