On Thursday, April 26, 2018, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve a bipartisan bill aimed at protecting special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by President Trump. But allow me to tell you why this is nothing more than a PR stunt and would actually be bad for the Left in the long run.
Now, it’s pretty obvious to tell why this is nothing more than a PR stunt. President Trump has not made any indication that he is even thinking, let alone planning, on firing Mueller. He himself has even said that if he was planning on firing Mueller, he would’ve done so last year. The biggest reason the Left is aiming to do this is simply to create a fictitious “victory” over Trump, and gloat over the fact that he would not be able to fire Mueller. But there are some problems with that.
First, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would not bring the bill on to the Senate floor, even if it were to be approved by the committee. Now, I don’t trust a darn thing this snake says. Frankly, I would expect him to either flip on this or act as though he’s caving and allow the full Senate to vote on the bill.
Second, even if the bill passes in the Senate, it still has to go through the House. The bill could be stopped right in its tracks by Republicans in the House of Representatives, but I think there are still too many Establishment Republicans even there to allow that. Regardless, there is still SOME chance it could be stopped there, however slim that chance may be.
Lastly, even if it were to pass both chambers of Congress, why would Trump ever sign it? He could easily veto the bill and send it back to Congress, where enough of a majority would have to be there to override his veto, which means getting a two-thirds vote in both chambers of Congress. I can hardly see that happening, particularly just a few months away from the midterms.
Trust me, as much as Establishment Republicans hate Trump, they still want to keep their jobs.
Now, if this whole thing is simply a self-sabotaging act on the part of the GOP to give Congress to the Democrats and ensure Trump’s impeachment, I don’t think this would work quite the way they would hope. As traitorous and as useless as they’ve been for most things (I’ll give them credit for the tax cuts), while they have not given anyone much incentive to vote Republican, the Democrats have given enough incentive for people to vote Republican.
Democrats were against the tax cuts that are healing the nation’s families. They are against protecting American citizens and are prioritizing illegals over us. They constantly show their true colors as Marxists who punish those who diverge from their line of thought. If Kanye had attacked Trump, do you think the Left would be attacking him? If Kyle Kashuv were part of the anti-gun club in Parkland, would one of his teachers have called him Hitler?
Time and time again, these people have shown their true colors as hateful and disgusting people who want to raise your taxes, keep African Americans and Hispanics unemployed (because a minority that doesn’t need the government should not be a possibility, in their minds), protect illegal killers and rapists while making you pay for it with the higher taxes they will bring back.
What reason does anyone really have to vote Democrat? They are not even hiding who they are anymore!
As scummy as the Republican Party has been so far, I’d much prefer their useless behinds over blood-thirsty, actually insane and enraged Leftists who will impeach Trump on the simple basis that they think he should’ve lost. No actual crime committed is necessary for them. The simple fact that Trump beat Hillary is enough for Democrats to look to impeach him. Why would Trump supporters allow them the opportunity to overturn everything good that’s been happening over these last 2 years?
I shall leave it at that, since that is a rhetorical question and there is another matter I wish to attend to regarding this vote to protect Mueller.
I said in the title that this is the last thing the Left wants in the long run. Sure, this is a good PR stunt, but that’s all it will give them: immediate gratification. On a practical level, they don’t want to keep Trump from firing Mueller.
Do you have any idea the firestorm that would occur if Trump fires Mueller? That would give the REPUBLICANS in Congress enough ammo to take him out! All they need is even the slightest evidence or “reasonable” suspicion of obstruction of justice, which the firing of Mueller would provide.
Trust me, many GOPers want Trump out too, but they will need something substantial. The only silver-lining of Republicans always “taking the high ground” is that they will not get rid of Trump for the same reasons the Democrats want him out. If they were to take him out only because they wanted him out, that would mark the definitive end of the Republican Party.
Now, you may be thinking: “So what? What is stopping the Republicans from destroying the GOP and simply switching to the Democrat Party and make this country a one-party system?” The simple fact that another Party will eventually rise up and contest the Democrat Party far more heavily than the current GOP.
This new Party would not have the same leadership as the current GOP. It would be led by actual Trump supporters and conservatives. And there goes the best chance the Establishment has at keeping control of the country. Because that Party would be INSANELY popular and would likely win many, MANY elections in the future, thus chipping away at the power the Establishment holds in Washington little by little. Perhaps not immediately, but certainly eventually. And such a strong opposition to the Establishment cannot be allowed to flourish, so they must keep the GOP afloat, at least for the time being.
So the Republicans will absolutely need a SUBSTANTIAL reason to impeach Trump. The firing of Robert Mueller could very well provide that substantial reason and simply accuse Trump of obstruction of justice. It wouldn’t be obstruction, but that’s irrelevant to these overlords. If they can even make it slightly seem like obstruction, that’s enough to keep some NeverTrumpers on their side. And it would be enough to at least keep their Party afloat, if severely weakened. Huge, wealthy donors like the Koch brothers would ensure the GOP’s survival, even if the base has jumped ship.
All things considered, with the fact that the investigation has turned up absolutely nothing on collusion, pressuring Trump into firing Mueller is their best shot at impeaching him. This investigation, on its own, will not lead to Trump’s impeachment. Unfortunately, it will hurt people like Michael Cohen, who’s only crime is being Trump’s lawyer, but it will not result in the impeachment of Donald Trump directly.
Now, if the Democrats were to get a super-majority, then the investigation could be the basis for their impeachment (at least officially), but the investigation itself will not get Trump impeached.
And that’s why I shake my head at the Left’s efforts here. Why would they go for something like this if it could backfire so easily against them in a practical sense? It would get their base to be happy for all of 5 minutes and would serve as a nice distraction from the seemingly-enlightened Kanye West and Chance the Rapper. But in their effort to impeach Trump, this would not help them if passed.
Their goal is to get a super-majority anyway. Why keep the Republicans from having an even slightly legitimate-looking reason to side with them prior to the midterms? If they can get Trump to fire Mueller and get the GOP to side with them in their impeachment efforts, that would at least somewhat preserve the fictitious image that there is bipartisanship and a rule of law in Washington. Such an image, people like you and me can see through. But there are plenty of people who still believe the law applies equally to everyone.
If that were actually the case, Bill and Hillary would’ve long been indicted and sent to jail, Comey would have been indicted, and Obama wouldn’t have even fully served his FIRST term, let alone have a second one.
Now, with all of that said, I have my doubts that this will even pass, let alone be signed into law. If their goal is to get Trump to veto it and accuse him of obstruction, big whoop. They’ve been trying this for A YEAR AND A HALF! Vetoing that bill would not be enough for Republicans to impeach him without utterly destroying the GOP, and thus, debilitating the Establishment in the future.
But let’s allow things to play out here. The Left may get their little emotional “victory”, but this will not amount to anything beneficial to them in terms of actually getting rid of Trump. Meanwhile, I’m still planning on going out to vote this November, all for Republican candidates regardless of whether they are Establishment or not.
My ultimate goal is to simply help Trump remain in office. Hopefully, you share a similar goal with me.
