It is plain to see that the Democrats’ push to impeach Donald Trump has little to do with the actions of the President, given just how malleable the left has been on the accusations that they are tossing his direction.
We mustn’t forget that there have been calls to impeach Trump going all the way back to his inauguration, and maybe even before that. What the Democrats needed was not a motivation to impeach the President, but rather an excuse to. They found that excuse in the UkraineGate conspiracy theory, purporting that Donald Trump misused the power of his office to benefit himself politically.
Despite the contentious hearings held by the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, the nation remains unmoved. The Democrats want Trump gone, Republicans do not, and there is no evidence that anyone will be breaking rank anytime soon.
For many on the right, the entire process is merely a ruse to damage Trump ahead of the 2020 election, and it appears now that House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff is openly admitting as much.
Schiff briefly addressed critics who say that Democrats should simply wait for the American people to judge the president in the 2020 election.
Democrats, Schiff suggested, cannot allow that, because it would essentially allow Trump to “cheat” in one more election. His remarks echo the Democrats’ longheld belief that the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia in 2016, despite the fact that the Mueller report debunked the narrative, finding no evidence of collusion or conspiracy between the two.
“The argument, ‘why don’t you just wait?’ comes down to this: Why don’t you just let him cheat in just one more election?” Schiff stated. “Why not let him have foreign help one more time?”…
Schiff was heavily criticized by his Republican colleagues over the rules and regulations implemented during the House hearings on impeachment, with a great many feeling as though the entire process was lopsided in favor of impeachment.
Now that articles of impeachment will be giving way to a Senate trial in the Republican-controlled higher chamber, there may very well be some payback coming.
