House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday what her radical far-left base has longed to hear: Democrats will proceed with articles of impeachment against President Trump.
But while this might come as a present to Democrats who have dreamed of impeaching President Trump since the day he took office, Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues should be careful what they wish for.
It is already apparent that Wednesday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee was a disaster for Democrats.
The Democratic desperation was obvious in the witnesses they called to the hearing: three rambling liberal law professors with documented anti-Trump biases who lectured the American people on their hatred for this president, rather than providing a shred of evidence to bolster the Democrats’ case.
One even stooped so low as to attack the President’s 13-year-old son to score cheap political points – a far cry from the “solemn,” “sad,” and “serious” approach Pelosi claims Democrats are taking.
What’s more, while Pelosi might preach that this “has absolutely nothing to do with politics,” it is clear this impeachment sham is a blatant attempt to steal the 2020 election away from voters. Democrats refuse to accept the results of the 2016 presidential election and know they can’t beat President Trump at the ballot box in November.
As George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley rightly pointed out at the hearing Wednesday, this impeachment “stands out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president.”
Fortunately for Republicans, the American people can see right through this partisan charade.
Support for impeachment has only fallen since public hearings began.
And independent voters all across the country overwhelmingly want Democrats to work with President Trump, not against him, on bipartisan proposals like passing U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade and measures to lower the cost of prescription drugs.
It was only back in March that Pelosi proclaimed that any impeachment attempt would have to be “overwhelming and bipartisan.”
But in a violation of Pelosi’s own guidelines, when the House voted on impeachment in October the only bipartisan support was against impeachment.
Pelosi has tried relying on our Founding Fathers to lend credibility to this impeachment circus.
