For two years, Democrat members of the House of Representatives like Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, and quite a number of others have beat the war drums with one goal in mind: IMPEACH! Impeach Trump NOW! Doesn’t matter what he’s not done in the way of a high crime, let alone a misdemeanor, he needs to be impeached.
During the Democrat victory laps following the November 6 midterms when the House seemed to flip, that mantra was repeated along with pledges to investigate the president’s business practices, his tax returns, his daughter’s bridge gap private email use, her husband’s business…
The Democrats want to rip Trump and his administration apart.
Well…a few members of the Democrat leadership team are telling the rank and file – and a few of the agitators in leadership positions – not so fast. It would be best, in their view, to not come out swinging, but focus on “policy” and issues with a visual impact:
Representative Jerrold Nadler, likely chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is discouraging talk of an immediate push to impeach Trump. …
Well, yeah, that’s a losing issue.
At the House Intelligence Committee, members are debating whether to reopen the panel’s 2016 Russian election-meddling probe, said sources who requested anonymity.
Representative Adam Schiff, on track to become the panel’s chairman, is leading a faction that wants to hold off on reopening the Russian inquiry, said sources.
At the same time, Schiff is talking publicly about investigating Trump’s ties to Russia, which has denied interfering in the 2016 election to favor Trump.
A little schizophrenic there, are you, Rep. Schitt, I mean Schiff. This man has been pushing that narrative for almost two years. Kind of strange that he’s giving up the push so easily now even if he’s not admitting it on camera.
Democrat Joaquin Castro, an Intelligence Committee member, favors committees starting the 2019-2020 Congress with hearings on issues such as the separation of immigrant children from their parents. But he told Reuters that Republicans have “turned a blind eye to key leads in the investigation into Russia’s interference in our 2016 election …
“In the next Congress, we will be sure to revisit all those leads, while at the same time actively examining whether Russians were money laundering through the Trump Organization, gaining any leverage over the president.”
Wait, didn’t Schiff say that one wasn’t going to be reopened.
It would be nice if the Democrats would make up their minds.
In the meantime, watching the rats scurry as their promises to do this and that does not come to fruition is going to be entertaining, to say the least.
