With summer recess in full swing for Congress, there will be opportunities abound for American citizens to get some face-time with their state and local representatives.
This is, after all, the very reason why we have a representative form of government. Our public servants are beholden to us, and will need to remain informed as to how we would like to be governed.
In the case of the liberal left, however, a terrifying reality is coming to light: A great many constituents of democratic lawmakers are growing indignant at the idea that the impeachment of Donald Trump is off the table thanks to Nancy Pelosi’s obstinance on the subject.
“People said, ‘Well, this might be risky, you might not get reelected,’” Porter said. “I said, ‘I am here to do what’s right.’”
In New Jersey, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., faced a more hostile reception when she said she opposes impeachment at this time and reportedly was interrupted multiple times as she made her point. The crowd accused her of playing politics, according to Politico, and threatened her with a primary challenge.
“Don’t be last to speak up. You’ll be challenged,” one woman told her.
Some weren’t quite as eloquent.
Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., who has opposed impeachment, was shouted down by a hostile crowd of hundreds of activists and constituents when he said he opposed impeachment, according to Politico.
“You are going to give Donald Trump another four years by doing that. You are helping him. You are helping him get another four years,” Lynch told the furious crowd.
Left-leaning legislators fear that an impeachment push would ultimately fail in the Senate, thanks to the republican majority in that house of Congress. This would, in turn, hadn’t Donald Trump a big “win” heading into 2020 – one that he would surely exploit on the campaign trail.
