The Democrats are on a mission to hang Donald Trump.
Their allies in the corporate press are playing their role in trying to remove him from office.
But big media can’t answer this uncomfortable impeachment question about Trump.
Never has a party been so deranged as the current-day Democrats.
The Democrats haven’t been anywhere near this unhinged since the Republicans took away their slaves in the 1860s.
They were so furious over Trump’s election in 2016, they marshaled all their resources to reverse the results and overturn the will of the people.
Their plan has been an all-out assault on constitutional norms and #Resistance at multiple levels.
Democrats have literally been gunning to impeach Trump since the day he was inaugurated.
The Washington Post ran a story about impeaching him minutes after he was sworn in.
Democrat Representatives in the House have called for votes on impeachment on four separate occasions.
Some Democrats even admit that they’ll impeach Trump as many times as they want.
But the one uncomfortable truth they can’t face about impeaching Trump is it exposes their hypocrisy on Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998.
On MSNBC with Chris Matthews, former Clinton administration deputy chief of staff Maria Echaveste tried to make the absurd argument as to why Trump must be impeached, but Clinton should not have been.
She said, “The impeachment in 1998 did not threaten the republic, did not threaten our country, and it’s quite in contrast to what this President has done.”
This is absurd.
Clinton lied under oath and pressed others to do the same.
And he and the Clinton machine were ready to destroy Monica Lewinsky as a liar had she not saved her infamous dress.
Lying under oath and pressuring others to commit perjury were certainly impeachable offenses that threatened the Republic.
Meanwhile Trump, who has the power to set foreign policy, made a harmless phone call with the newly-elected president of Ukraine – but because an anti-Trump member of the deep state didn’t like Trump’s foreign policy priorities, the impeachment charade was launched.
Echaveste continued, “The second Article which obstruction of Congress is basically, if left unchallenged, allows a president to act like a king, to say he is above the law and cannot be — there can be no oversight by Congress, and that is a direct blow to our institution.”
This is absolute nonsense.
There’s a separation of powers for a reason.
The Judiciary determines if subpoenas from Congress must be honored, but the Democrats didn’t take that step.
Instead, they chose to make up the charge of obstruction for Congress, along with abuse of power – another made-up charge.
Meanwhile, Clinton committed the actual crimes of perjury and obstruction of justice.
Perhaps most embarrassing for the Democrats is that Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Jerry Nadler all said impeaching Clinton on “partisan” grounds would’ve shaken the country’s faith in governmental institutions.
So they shielded Clinton’s actual crimes, but they believe making up non-crimes against Trump will somehow show integrity and maintain faith in institutions.
The Democrats have gone completely insane and their madness doesn’t seem to have any bounds.
