This impeachment is a farce and a scam, and that’s why liberals can “Impeach This!”
Democrats promised to take revenge on Republicans for impeaching Bill Clinton in 1998. At the time, Nancy Pelosi said: “Today the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance… In the investigation of the president, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear — fairness, privacy, checks, and balances — have been seriously violated and why? Because we are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. … Until the Republicans free themselves of that hatred, our country will suffer.” Now… Nancy Pelosi isn’t all that intellectually sharp these days (if she ever was), but she ought to remember saying that. And shouldn’t the media be asking her about this quote as well?
The impeachment of Donald Trump is dangerous for America and for the Constitution. All of the Democrats maneuvers since Trump’s elections have all relied on partisan implants in bureaucratic positions. Everything Democrats are trying to do is an attempt to tie a duly elected President’s hands and nullify his Presidency by using partisan bureaucrats against him as spies and assassins. We don’t elect these bureaucrats, and there is no way to hold them accountable.
During the Obama administration, Senator Harry Reed seriously damaged the integrity of the Senate by destroying the Judicial confirmation process by using the “nuclear option” to require only a 50% vote to approve the President’s appointees. Now they regret it deeply. The farce of liberal resistance to Bret Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court is, at essence, a liberal cry of disgust at being hung by their own petard regarding judicial nominations.
What is currently happening with this farce impeachment is the same thing all over again. There is no crime here, nothing impeachable. The whole “whistleblower” fiasco is now known to have been started by a bureaucrat who is a Democrat and a loyalist to Joe and Hunter Biden. But every Democrat in the House will vote to impeach him anyway, no matter the lack of evidence, and what evidence may exist is not evidence of a crime. If the Democrats had a majority of the Senate, they would find a way to eliminate the need for a two-thirds vote to impeach him. They would wipe Trump out if they could, without regard for the Constitution. There’s a name for that. It’s called mob rule.
Democrats should remember the filibuster and the Judicial nominating process, and be very careful about the precedent they are setting here. Republicans are far more likely to get and keep control of both the House and the Senate the Democrats will be, any time soon. Just like Judicial nominations, Democrats may find they rue the day they trampled on the Constitution for short term political gain.
