Media, the Left Have Pushed Trump Impeachment for 35 Months, Even Before Inauguration

Media, the Left Have Pushed Trump Impeachment for 35 Months, Even Before Inauguration

They don’t care if Trump did anything wrong. They’re upset the American people pushed aside their precious Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump faces an impeachment inquiry forced by the House Democrats. Thing is, the media and the left have pushed for Trump’s impeachment for over 35 months.

It started before Trump even took office in January 2017.

MRC NewsBusters pointed out the impeachment obsession yesterday:

By November 10, 2016 — just two days after the election! — television talking heads were already conjuring up theoretical scenarios in which Donald Trump could be removed from office. Since then, TV journalists have amassed quite a repertoire of possible causes for a premature end to the Trump White House, including (but not limited to): his tax returns; his family’s business dealings, both home and abroad; his firing of various cabinet officials; and of course, his tweets.

Remember the obsession with supposed Russian collusion began right away. For instance, The Independent reported on January 17, 2019, that people called for impeachment or Trump’s resignation after reports surfaced he told his lawyer “Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about talks to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.”

On January 20, 2017, The Washington Post published an article titled The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.

Matea Gold wrote about how the website ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org went live right as Trump took his oath. Free Specch for People and RootsAction started the campaign in order to stop bad things from happening:

“If we were to wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur,” said Ron Fein, legal director at Free Speech for People. “It will undermine faith in basic institutions. If nothing else, it’s important for Americans to trust that the president is doing what he thinks is the right thing … not that it would help jump-start a stalled casino project in another country.”

The impeachment drive comes as Democrats and liberal activists are mounting broad opposition to stymie Trump’s agenda. Among the groups organizing challenges to the Trump administration is the American Civil Liberties Union, which plans to wield public-records requests and lawsuits as part of an aggressive action plan aimed at protecting immigrants and pushing for government transparency, among other issues.

“We think that President Trump will be in violation of the Constitution and federal statutes on day one, and we plan a vigorous offense to ensure the worst of the constitutional violations do not occur,” said Anthony D. Romero, the ACLU’s executive director.

Rep. Boyd Roberts (D-CA) filed paperwork to the FEC to form the Impeach Trump Leadership PAC a month after the inauguration.

Then came the dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Rep. Al Green (D-TX) became the first Democrats to suggest impeachment proceedings.

Since then, Green has shown his obsession over impeachment. He has professed numerous times on the floor that he will not stop until Congress impeaches Trump.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) joined the chorus. She told The View in August 2017 that after Congress impeaches Trump they will go after Vice President Mike Pence.

California billionaire and climate activist Tom Steyer released an ad in October 2017 to push for Congress to impeach Trump. Steyer is now running for the Democratic presidential nomination for 2020.

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) filed articles of impeachment earlier this year.

Let’s not forget about House Judiciary Committe Chairman Jerry Nadler:

This has nothing to do with any supposed wrongdoing by Trump. It has everything to do with the fact that the American people chose him instead of their precious Hillary Clinton.

This would not be happening if the Republicans would find their gonads and start fighting back with RIDICULE! Flood the landscape with the truth already!

The problem is that the swamp is so thoroughly corrupt that anyone who dares takes the lead will be stabbed in the back by his own corrupt party. The only way to get around the “there but for the grace of God go I” problem is for the non-corrupt (if there are any) to stand their ground and dare to do something. SAY IT and then DO IT! In my eyes, they are all corrupt until proven otherwise.

    “In my eyes, they are all corrupt until proven otherwise.”

    According to Wikipedia, The base salary for congress critters is $174K per year. That’s nothing to sneeze at but even so, how come so many of them are millionaires? Smart investing? Riiiiiight.

    While I loathe the Democrats, I despise the spineless, lying GOP almost as much. They’re a bunch of useless eunuchs. We are doomed if we have to depend on them.

    Phil, the Repubs are fighting back, and they are using both reason and ridicule, and their responses are being spiked.

    MSM gets its national political news from the Washington Post and the New York Times. They publish “news” stories full of holes that are really opinion pieces.

    One of the biggest holes is the Republican response.

    That’s why I am here.

      I think you are confusing Republicans speaking out to the media as fighting back. We don’t need Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee speaking on the Sunday news shows. We need him issuing subpoenas. Same with McConnell and the rest of the crooks. It continues to be mere kabuki theater until the leadership actually DOES something or they get removed by a Republican uprising on the floor. Posturing is not action.

      Our own squishiness in accepting their posturing as action is how we got here in the first place. It’s time for our own days of outrage and it starts with the Republican party leadership and it starts now.

        Yes.

        You have to “fight fire with fire”. Until the R side fights back tooth and nail with the same tools used by the commies we will always be exposed. Being nice is for the losing side.

D’s remind me of the Sandinistas who, after finally being forced to hold elections and losing, vowed to “rule from below” – same mindset that automatically equates “the will of the people” with “my party’s platform.” Sort of a perverse version of “the divine right of kings” from the old days.

For those of us having lived through the ’60s and experienced the leftist revolutionary budding into mainstream politics,this a familiar but now on a broader scale. Back then the mindset is that anything, any unintended consequence, even destruction of then American way of life was better then what the USA was. It wasn’t about a half full or half empty glass..it was about shattering the glass . When Rev. Jeffress talked of a fractured country from Civil War times the Left jumped all over civil war … Missing the point of permanent wounds from fracturing which they are actively doing . Civil discourse is being shouted down and as Biden wants..excluded. Faced with attempted destruction of a culture and avenues of discourse cut off what is left but self defense? Cue Lincoln and a house divided.

    It’s really going to get interesting after President Trump is re-elected. I would not want to be in those large demorat run cities. When they expand the violence to fly over is when the shooting will start.

Quoth Machiavelli: “It is much safer to be feared than to be loved …”

There’s a reason that nobody messes with the Clintons. They know that bad things happen to people who mess with the Clintons.

Conversely, there’s a reason that every malcontent, America-hater, and would-be commissar is on the warpath against Trump: They don’t fear him.

It would be very good for America if they started. A few predawn SWAT raids on the coup conspirators and their media apparatchiks would be a good start. Speedy trials followed by appropriate punishments would be a good follow-up.

The Seinfeld Impeachment – it’s about nothing.

It’s not just Clinton they are upset you rejected there century-old attempt to relieve you of your freedoms and start a modern fudeal system with them in control of you sheep. Clinton herself siad in the 90s only government could take care of you.

I don’t think the hatred of Trump is about Hillary.

Remember how peaceful and kind the left was when Obama was president? No? That’s because they were arrogant, scornful and mean then, too.

It’s a bit worse now but not because of any particular person, party or policy. They just like to hate.

There have to be consequences for breaking the law.

Dems’ trying to nail Trump for THEIR own sins has to stop.

Barr? Durham? Huber? We’re getting impatient . . .

I don’t think it’s about Hillary’s loss. Wasn’t it GHWB who talked about the US role in the “new world order”? Seemingly every president since him has been steering the US gradually to NWO/UN rule – countries without borders or citizenship … and along comes Trump who deliberately steers the country back towards ‘nationalism’ / American exceptionalism, citizenship and constitutional law, etc.

The UK is experiencing no less turmoil over Brexit.

Israel is under fire for so-called Zionism (nationalism).

The hounds of hell are after Trump (BoJo, Netanyahu, et al) because they are resisting the tide of globalism and everyone who has sold out to it …

As a person of faith and someone who believes what the scriptures (Bible) have to say, this is a fight against the antichrist’s system of government. A fight we will all eventually lose – but for now, I am for holding back that darkness as long as is humanly possible, with the help of God.

Oh, and once the key witness committed suicide. Notice I didn’t predicate that with “Not that I am a conspiracy theorist but..”.
