The left has long been attempting to create favorable conditions for impeaching the President of the United States, in what could be one of the strangest set of goals of any political class.
This hope has been simmering since before Trump was even sworn into office, with many believing that the real estate mogul had no business in the White House to begin with, despite not having yet been given the chance to govern.
As Donald Trump’s first term continued to roll on, the democratic party consistently gathered grievances, hoping to turn the tide on impeachment sooner rather than later.
When the “RussiaGate” conspiracy failed, the left turned briefly back to the Stormy Daniels affair of 12 years ago before being gifted a new angle in the fight against the leader of the free world: A whistleblower complaint that they haven’t even heard yet.
Now, as the left continues to extrapolate their own theories about what is contained within the text of the complaint, (which they have not seen, mind you), they are again making a major push toward impeachment.
A slew of key swing-district Democrats late Monday threw their support en masse behind opening a formal impeachment inquiry, as The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal reported in the evening that President Trump personally ordered acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to freeze nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine just days before he pressed the new Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
The rapid-fire declarations by the influential Democrats, after seemingly months of teetering on the brink, came just a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly suggested she was now warming to the idea of impeaching the president. Speaking to Fox News, a House Democratic leadership aide confirmed that the Democratic caucus will meet Tuesday afternoon to discuss the Ukraine matter and how to proceed.
One prominent democrat put it candidly…
This may very well be playing right into Trump’s hands, however, as impeachment proceedings are likely to stall in the republican-controlled Senate. This would set the President up for a major boost come the 2020 election.
