Unhinged Democrat Base Clamoring For Impeachment Or Something

This is where the old adage “be careful what you wish for; you might get it” comes into play. If they think this will play well outside of their safe blue districts, they have another thing coming, and that big thing will be Trump’s easy re-election

Democrats face voters clamoring for impeachment

House Democrats are hearing more calls from their constituents back home to move forward on impeaching President Trump, adding to the pressure as they return to Washington this week.

While many Democrats have long insisted that voters at town halls would rather talk about kitchen-table issues than special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, that began to change this week as the number of lawmakers endorsing impeachment climbed to at least 50.

The pressure began to extend to some swing districts, where constituents pressed Democratic members including Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.) and Donna Shalala (Fla.) to move ahead with impeachment proceedings.

Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.), a Judiciary Committee member who backs launching an impeachment inquiry, said the widespread support from her constituents at a Wednesday town hall “is a shift” from even a month ago.

House Democrats’ district town halls during the Memorial Day recess came as Mueller made his first public appearance to reiterate the findings in his report about Russian election interference and Trump’s efforts to obstruct the investigation. More than a dozen Democrats subsequently jumped on the impeachment train, citing Mueller’s assertion that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

Of course, that’s not the way it works. If you do not have the evidence to charge, than the person is innocent.

Nearly all of the Democrats calling for an impeachment inquiry — with the exception of freshman Rep. Tom Malinowski (N.J.) — hail from safe blue districts. But the impeachment talk is starting to raise its head across the country, even if swing-district lawmakers largely aren’t ready to get on board yet.

Essentially, it is the hardcore Democrat base agitating for impeachment, primarily in those safe blue districts. But, overall, Trump’s poll numbers are going up post-Mueller, and majority of polled voters are against impeachment. This is why the Dem leaders, such as Nancy Pelosi, are against starting impeachment hearings. They know it is a quick way to losing the House and seeing Trump re-elected. Which is certainly why Trump is almost daring them.

But, what else do Democrats have? They have the Russia Russia Russia investigation a whirl. It failed. Do they actually think yapping about obstruction based on an investigation that should never have happened will work?

    Thing is, that rule does not apply to impeachment. As Gerald Ford famously said, an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives says it is.

    The real problem for the Democrats is that it would require twenty Senate Republicans to remove President Trump from office, and there aren’t twenty Republican senators from the blue states.

    Other than Mitt Romney of Utah, who’s still pissed that President Trump didn’t pick him to be Secretary of State, and pissed that Mr Trump was able to do something he couldn’t, win a presidential election, just which Republican senators does anyone think would be even remotely susceptible to voting to remove the President?

      I agree. The Democrats right now are just arguing among themselves as to when to start impeachment so that they get the most benefit prior to the 2020 elections. This has always been about removing Trump and punishing him and everyone around him for beating Hillary.
