Former Bush Chief of Staff John Sununu is predicting that the Democrats are about to make a very serious mistake in trying to impeach President Trump.
Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment. There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can’t impeach. It was the Democrats that committed the crimes, not your Republican President! Tables are finally turning on the Witch Hunt!

Attempting impeachment is actually how Democrats will help turn out the Republican vote and re-elect the Republican President.

“I’m making the case that it would be a gift to the Republicans if they failed to let it go and move on. I think it will be a very dumb political move for the Democrats,” said Sununu on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday.
He added, “I think the Democrats are going to make a serious, serious mistake because I think the court of opinion is going to move strongly in the president’s favor as people find out the legal malice that was in Volume Two.”
“I think the more you read that, the more you understand that was Andrew Weissmann doing unethical legal malfeasance once again, the Republicans can point that out,” said Sununu who served as chief of staff from 1989-1991.
“I think when Lindsey Graham starts his investigation on the Clinton side of the issue, they will have a difficult time with dealing that. And the more and more they get into the weeds, the more and more the American public is going to understand how political they are.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is scheduled to hold a private conference call Monday with fellow Democrats in which the topic of the potential impeachment will be raised.
