Today’s introduction of articles of impeachment against Donald Trump may not have been all that surprising to the nation, as the Democrats have been consistently seeking justification for such a maneuver from the moment that No. 45 was inaugurated…and maybe even before that.
What is surprising is the speed and recklessness of the process, with House Democrats eschewing precedent and procedure in order to jam a could of vague and broad articles down the throats of the American people. Their accusations are obstruction of Congress and abuse of power, and these two allegations are now poised to receive their adjudication in the Senate. All paths point to an acquittal of Donald Trump by the Republican-controlled chamber, frustrating those concerned about just how much time and how many resources have been wasted on impeachment thus far.
Still, the liberal stalwarts remain true to their “resistance”, with a pair of notable Democrats now weighing in predictably.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who famously lost the 2016 election to now-President Trump, swiftly gave her public support to articles of impeachment against her political rival after they were announced by House Democrats Tuesday morning.
Clinton called the impeachment push necessary for defending democracy.
“We must defend our democracy, and the painful truth is that the occupant of the Oval Office is waging war against it,” Clinton tweeted.
Bubba’s bombast wasn’t far behind.
Former President Bill Clinton, the only living American president to have gone through the same process, weighed in Tuesday on House Democrats’ bid to impeach President Trump — saying lawmakers are doing “what they believe is right.”
“They’re doing their job as they see it and we should wait to see it unfold,” Clinton told Fox News while touring a Clinton Foundation program in New York City. “And the rest of us should go about our jobs and do them as we see it.”
Bill’s nonchalance seems more than a bit disingenuous, of course, and may be indicative of the Democratic strategy to make this process appear somber…despite the widespread celebration that we see among the liberal constituency, particularly on social media.
