On January 3rd, 2019, Democrat Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA) moved to introduce articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump, accusing Trump of having obstructed justice in the firing of James Comey.
Sherman told the LA Times: “There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress. Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for the country.”
An awful lot about this entire thing is very hilarious in my opinion.
First, to rebuke Sherman, is it really good for the country to raise taxes once again on middle-class families and on businesses? Is it good for the country to open our borders and allow for criminal illegal aliens (and they are all criminals based on the fact they are ILLEGAL) to come in and at best be simply leeches for our economy and at worst be rapists and murderers of our people? Is it really good to have our economy return to stagnation and horrible unemployment rates?
There’s more that I could talk about, but this is not the main point of the article. I’m just trying to highlight the cost of removing Trump (and Pence) from office.
Second, if the firing of James Comey could legitimately be seen as an impeachable offense, Trump would’ve been removed ages ago. RINOs and even Nancy Pelosi have held reservations of impeaching Trump based on this because it seems mostly like politics (which is the point of impeachment, as it’s not a tool for justice, but they have to at least pretend there is some justice being served).
Sure, the Democrats control the House now, but this is not likely to fly. Why do I say this? Because Sherman introduced these very same articles of impeachment in 2017 and only got one other Democrat, Rep. Al Green (D-TX), to go along with it before Green introduced his own articles of impeachment regarding the supposed Muslim ban.
And it’s not even like the reason those articles were denied was because Democrats didn’t hold the House at the time. That’s largely irrelevant. If they thought either the Muslim ban or the firing of James Comey seemed legitimate enough, they would’ve pushed for it extremely hard, even if they knew it would not pass at the time.
In other words, Democrats are not confident on impeaching Trump based on this.
But let’s say that they do all push for it. The Democrats hold the majority, so if they all vote in favor of it, articles of impeachment would head to the Senate. But guess who not only has control of that, but has even expanded its hold on it since the election?
Even with Mitt Romney in the Senate, I don’t think he’s so much of an idiot as to vote in favor of impeaching Trump based on this. And even if he is, the Democrats would need 14 other Republicans to vote alongside them for a two-thirds majority. If even Democrats aren’t all that confident over these reasons, there’s little doubt enough Republicans would go for it for these reasons as well.
The thing about impeaching Trump over firing James Comey is that Trump, as head of the executive branch, can fire and hire whomever he wants in the executive branch. The FBI, though it often works with the Legislative branch, is part of the executive branch and the POTUS chooses whether or not he/she fires the Director for any given reason.
As I’ve said in the past, Donald Trump won’t be impeached. Unless the Mueller investigation can actually come up with damning and solid evidence of collusion with Russia (a narrative that has been dying for quite a while now), Trump is not going to be impeached. The Democrats’ best hopes of getting Trump out of office will be by beating him in 2020 with a cast of a pervy lunatic (Biden), a fake Indian (Warren), a drunk driver (Beto O’Rourke), an ill-educated Marxist (Sanders), or the wife of the worst President this country’s ever seen (Michelle Obama). And these are simply the most prominent ones that supposedly even stand some sort of chance.
Of course, there’s Kamala Harris and Cory “Not very Smarticus” Booker to be talked about, but they can hardly be considered any more reasonable and of sound-mind than Warren or Biden.
But returning to the eager beaver Democrats in the House, all I can do is laugh at their pathetic display of a fighting spirit. Even beyond impeachment, there is honestly not much that Democrats can do even with a majority in the House.
Raise taxes? Senate will almost certainly block that. Medicare-for-all? Ditto. Just about anything overly and obviously socialistic? Nope, not happening.
The only things that will pass the Legislature are bipartisan things like the First Step Act. Democrats can’t strong-arm anything. Unfortunately, neither can Republicans, but they never intended to do so given they largely didn’t pass much of worth while they controlled both chambers of Congress apart from tax cuts.
But aside from that, there is virtually nothing that the Dems can do. Some of the biggest damage they can honestly cause is starting investigation after investigation on Trump, his campaign, and everything they possibly can, and even that is not bound to be fruitful for them.
Apart from that, the damage they can cause is the economy to slow down a little, which is not helped by the fact that a useless organization like the Fed plans to continue raising interest rates.
And now that Democrats hold the House, I hope and pray that people can see just how bad it is when Democrats are in control of anything and this leads to an absolute Red Wave come 2020, with Trump being soundly reelected, conservatives gaining in the Senate and retaking the House by a great majority.
As it stands, it’s still too early to make any sort of predictions, but that’s my sincerest hope. We cannot allow for the socialist Left to retake this country, because that would mark the last time we would likely be able to elect someone like Trump.
