Democrats are all in on this disgraceful impeachment of Donald Trump.
They’re reversing the results of the 2016 election.
And Democrats said something about impeachment that will make your blood boil.
It’s no secret that the Democrats are massive hypocrites.
If they didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
But their flip-flop on impeachment vis-à-vis the Bill Clinton saga over 20 years ago shows just how phony they are.
The Democrats have been itching for a reason to remove Trump from office.
Merely minutes after Trump was inaugurated, mainstream media outlets like The Washington Post ran stories about how the case for impeachment must be made.
Reporter Mollie Hemingway overheard House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jerry Nadler discussing Trump’s impeachment on a train back in 2018.
Democratic congressmen had attempted to bring impeachment charges against Trump before the Ukrainian phone call hoax finally granted them their wish.
Even the attorney for the whistleblower who got this entire sham proceeding rolling tweeted about the “coup” against Trump being underway.
They’re not even hiding the ball.
And their responses to Trump’s impeachment versus Clinton’s impeachment are night and day.
In 1999, New York Times journalist Ginger Thompson wrote of impeachment:
“As she watches Republicans in Congress push ahead with impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, Ellen Mendel of Manhattan says she feels the same despair that she did as a girl in Nazi Germany, when the efforts of a stubborn group of leaders snowballed, crushing the will of the people.”
The Democrats stooped so low as to compare impeachment to Nazi totalitarianism.
The great irony on Thompson’s writing is that it’s the Democrats who are attempting to countermand the will of the people.
It’s the Democrats who are trying to undo the results of 2016.
And polls show that a majority of Americans do not support the removal of Trump from office.
Another stark difference between the two impeachment processes is that Clinton was charged with actual crimes.
Clinton perjured himself and strong-armed witnesses into lying under oath.
Conversely, Trump was charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Both are vague concepts that aren’t criminal acts.
The obstruction of Congress charge is particularly ridiculous because the White House followed constitutional procedures.
But instead of appealing to the Supreme Court, the Democrats instead chose to withdraw subpoenas and charge obstruction of Congress.
It’s not obstruction to invoke executive privilege, which is precisely what Barack Obama did to shield Attorney General Eric Holder from testifying regarding the Fast and Furious scandal.
The reason why the Democrats didn’t bother to go through proper legal channels is because they didn’t want the court process to drag on past the general election in November.
They’ve essentially admitted that impeachment is all about damaging Trump for 2020.
While Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are all banging the table in favor of Trump’s impeachment, they all took the opposite position when faced with Clinton’s impeachment.
They’re hypocrites and they can’t be trusted on anything.
