Democrats Preparing to Resume Push for Impeachment

Democrats Preparing to Resume Push for Impeachment

“Most of the impeachment quasi-action is in the Judiciary Committee, chaired by Representative Jerrold Nadler”

Democrats no longer have the Russia probe to hang over Trump’s head, but their base doesn’t care. The far left wants Trump impeached, and they will not stop pushing for it.

Andrew McCarthy writes at National Review:

Storming Back to the Impeachment Charade

Elections have consequences. This was a point we tried to make many times in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections. The Democrats won control of the House fair and square. That means they get to drive the agenda.

Their agenda, kinda sorta, is the impeachment of President Trump — which is to say, the quixotic quest to build political support for it. According to the Washington Post, that effort is about to sink deeper into farce: Hearings on Stormy Daniels and the hush-money payments to conceal trysts that Donald Trump had — allegedly, of course — a decade before he ran for president.

Such a quest is a two-edged sword, though. If this is how the Democrats choose to spend the public’s time and money, they must be accountable for it. They must be pressured to demonstrate the courage of their anti-Trump convictions. So far, for all the bluster, they’ve gotten away with cowardice.

Most of the impeachment quasi-action is in the Judiciary Committee, chaired by Representative Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.). We have to qualify the word “action” because, while Nadler claims to be conducting an impeachment inquiry, his committee has never actually voted to have one.

As I said before, this is all about the base. Who cares about Russia anymore? They’re finding new reasons.

From CNN:

Democrats widen impeachment probe as they confront roadblocks

Faced with a time crunch ahead of the 2020 election season, the House Judiciary Committee is broadening its investigation beyond special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings as lawmakers confront lingering hurdles over impeaching President Donald Trump.

With Congress reconvening next week after its summer recess, the committee is expanding its focus beyond Mueller’s findings that Trump may have obstructed justice by seeking to undercut the investigation into his campaign and actions as President, an area that has dominated the panel’s focus up until now.

As they head into a critical fall session, Democrats say they will also focus heavily on questions over whether the President is enriching himself while violating the emoluments clause in the Constitution, reports Trump dangled pardons to officials who were at risk of breaking immigration laws and his involvement in hush-money payments to over his alleged extramarital affairs — all of which could form articles of impeachment against the President, according to lawmakers and aides involved in the effort.

In the background, there are people like Tom Steyer – the Captain Ahab of Trump impeachment – egging them on.

Charles Creitz reports at FOX News:

Tom Steyer: Trump is ‘most corrupt president in American history,’ and has ‘more than met’ impeachment criteria

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer called President Trump a threat to the rule of law and explained why climate change must be addressed with all due haste.

The president is a threat to the Constitution and represents the apex of corruption, Steyer asserted Wednesday in an interview with Bret Baier on “Special Report.”

Asked by Baier if the president should be impeached, Steyer said: “I think he’s the most corrupt president in American history. I think he’s more than met the criteria for impeachment. I think he threatens the safety of Americans — but more than that, he threatens the whole idea of the rule of law.”

Democrats are playing a dangerous game here. If they try to impeach and fail, they’ll look ridiculous.

If they don’t try, they’ll enrage their already furious base.

Indictment of President Trump:

1. Blasphemy against the Great Goddesses Progress and Historical Necessity, since he defeated Hillary Clinton in an election rigged in her favor.

2. Proving the self-apponted Smartest People in the Room (SPITR–pronounced “spitter”) wrong after they assured us all Hillary would win.

3. Failure to be guilty of collusion with Putin.

4. Appointing Supreme Court justices who possibly honor the Constitution above the Leftist agenda.

But of course. The allegedly mentally ill Rep. Jerry Nadler(D) will crank up this Leftist fever-dream just in time for election season, and the predictable 24/7 anti-Trump media bilge to promote it.

The media should be required to register as a PAC for their in-kind campaign contribution.

the problem the Democrats have with these impeachment proceedings is they know they could never score a conviction in the Senate

so all of THIS is just window dressing for their base

if they don’t do it – their base gets pissed they didn’t “impeach” while the Dems had the House majority

if they do – it fails in the Senate then could hurt them at the 2020 ballot box

and don’t think the Democrats as a party don’t realize the pickle they are in

it is the proverbial – the train has gone off the tracks

it is now just how far it tumble before it gives out

    They’ll continue to bang the impeachment drum to fever pitch the fall of 2020 at which point with the help of the MSM the Dems will introduce the narrative “the people’s impeachment” of Trump – in the same way the ‘911 election’ was promoted in 2016.

    If voting Dems take the time to consider what the House is doing they may (should) revolt at the polls … in essence house Dems would be saying to their constituents “we need you to do in a day (11/6/2020) what we couldn’t do in 2 years … dump Trump … oh, and vote for us …”

    With hope, Dem voters will wake up to the spineless cowards they’ve put in office.

      Make that 11/3/2020 …

      It’s mind boggling to think they’re going to try to bring Stormy Daniels back up – CNN flogged that story for hours every day for over a year, and no one cared and it never went anywhere. And so now what’s the plan? “We’ll do the same thing over again but this time it’s gonna work!!!”

      Maybe they can bring Avenatti back – oh wait, he’s got an appointment with a Federal Court.

        you also have to consider the possibility the Democrats are freaking out behind the scenes because of the IG’s report on the FISA abuse coming out in a month and a special prosecution team assigned to investigate the origins of the Russia probe

        if they don’t get these hearings out before theirs, then it could create a bad news cycle, months on end, if AG Barr has the balls to start passing out indictments

        not that I’m expecting THAT mind you

        but it would make the impeachment proceedings on the House floor even more ridiculous to behold in such a period where the very origin of the proceedings (Trump-Russia collusion) was shown to be based on a ridiculous falsehood

        just saying what could be going through these Dems’ minds atm

      fishstick in reply to MrE. | September 7, 2019 at 10:20 pm

      you forget the vast majority Dem voters are nuts

      it is the independent votes the Democrats risk to lose in droves in trying to impeach Trump on such a baseless notion that their near 3 year special counsel couldn’t deliver on

      not to mention it will be confirmed that Trump was right, his campaign was indeed spied upon during the 2016 election cycle

      so having official reports detailing this also hurts the Democrats as they try to defend all this corrupt behavior

All this current impeachment run does is point out how they are less than confident that they will give DJT the boot in 2020. If they really think that any of their front-runners will win in 2020, they would just be organizing their agenda and prioritizing it; running out the clock so they can hit the ground running on January 21 2021.

But that is not what we see happening. I think that, down deep, the Dems know they will not unseat DJT in 2020.

I agree that Democrats are trying to appease their genocidal base by trying to impeach Trump.

But I also think that Democrats are trying to appeal to open-borders pro-gun control #NeverTrump Republicans (a disturbing number of whom can be found in Congress) and certain niche GOP groups like the so-called Suburban Wine Moms, married middle-aged mothers who used to vote GOP to protect their families from wacky Democrat social engineering schemes but who are also bored with life and can be easily browbeaten by peer pressure into thinking that all our political troubles are really Trump’s fault, and if we just dump him everything will suddenly become “normal” again, whatever that means.

Article 2 section ii still needs a crime and bumhurt liberalism isnt illegal.

That porcine progressive “No Nads” Nadler needs a little costuming help in this effort. He should get a big Mexican sombrero, call himself the “Frito Bandito” (or maybe “Nacho Guacamole”) and say “We don’t need no steenkin’ facts to impeach”.

This is all low comedy.

They may have always thought so but it is now a major part of the Democrat platform: Every Republican electoral victory is illegitimate and evidence of criminal activity whereas every Democrat electoral victory is not only legitimate, it’s a mandate from the people.

They’re always “pushing” for it. Gotta keep their little sheeple mobs fired up. Of course Nad-less doesn’t have the guts (not to mention other vital body parts) to actually do it. But just so long as it stays in the news.

    You miss the point. They (– politicians in general –do not want to solve problems. They identify them and “try to address” them and “work hard” on them to keep them in the news, both the issue and themselves. If you resolve it you will not have it to beat up the opposition over at the next election.

    Ex: Early on DJT offered up a solution to the “dreamer” issue in exchange for wall funding. He tossed in another group of border-jumpers so almost twice the number (of dreamers) would be allowed to stay. That wold have diffused the whole dreamer-immigration mess and put up a wall to forestall the next wave. It was rejected by the Dems. How could they motivate their Mexican base when the opponent just solved the problem?

Is there a formula that democrats use to determine the number of diversities that need to be in the background for any picture?

May the tmpeachment of President Trump end of being a giant suppository for all those involved.

D party house leadership has a huge self created problem. Don’t ever hold a vote to proceed with articles of impeachment which alienates the rabidly vocal elements OR hold the vote which will expose the supposed ‘moderates’ who represent purple and in some cases red districts. Either way the D lose.

These hearings are a farce and are only delaying the inevitable consequence of this stupidity. So, IMO, let your opponents make all the mistakes they care to, eventually these self inflected wounds will begin to take their toll.

Polls consistently report that impeachment is very unpopular among voters, 67-70% of voters are against it. They know there is no hope for having Trump removed. They just want to tarnish Trump’s legacy. They aren’t even being clever about it. Shameful. This is Paul Ryan’s legacy.

Until and unless the coup plotters are arrested and tried, everything else the government does is a joke. It’s merely a sideshow to distract everyone while the globalists dismantle and loot what’s left of America. So far, President Trump can’t stop it or he won’t. Either way, the prognosis is grim.

Nadler has a full on case of TDS. It is not a pretense to appease the basement and crazed feminists. Nadler is crazed with Trump hatred to the point he sees Trump everywhere. Pelosi cannot talk reason into him, as she did with Schiff when she warned him, in my opinion, that he was very close to being personally implicated in the Coup Against Trump.

Have any of the Dhimmi candidates been asked– or should I say trolled– as to where they stand on impeachment? Would love to get any of them stating on the record that they support it. And if they deny it, that would only embarrass Nadler and inflame their base.

With the extreme unpopular idea of trying to impeach Trump over contrived charges, the extreme Leftist/socialist policies being pursued by the Democrat candidates running for President, the demands for draconian gun control/confiscation laws being pushed by Democrats, the insane stance on global warming and their”solutions” that include banning oil and nuclear power, and the Leftist MSM’s nonstop attacks against Trump for the most trivial and often wrong issues, one has to ask whether or not the Democrats are really serious about winning in 2020?

Isn’t it about time that the Democrats get off their dead rear ends and do some work?
They have wasted millions of our money with their continuous investigations and committee meetings.
The only problem with Trump is that he has shown that a non-politician can do a better job than any politician.

Obama destroyed our economy and was well on his way to destroying our country. Obama said we have to get used to no jobs and a bad economy. Trump reversed everything Obama did and showed Obama for what he was – a blood sucking leach!

I keep seeing the word “Corrupt.” Could someone please give me the left’s definition of this term and a few examples of how Trump is “The most corrupt president in history.”?

Can somone tell me how many hostages Jerold Nadler has f8rced rhe NORKs to give up?
