While the impeachment cat may be out of its proverbial bag, there is no denying that the process so far points to one thing: A Democratic stunt aimed at swaying voters in 2020.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats understand explicitly that their “formal impeachment inquiry” will die a quick death in the Republican-controlled Senate. Even Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has intimated as much, adding the caveat that he would personally see to the “swift” part of the equation.
So why push forward at all? Because the circus makes for good television, and will act as an unpaid, 24/7 anti-Trump campaign advertisement for 2020’s general election.
Further evidence of this motivation comes in the form of the process’s origins, where secretive hearings and selective leaking gave the Democrats a head start when it came to the media spin-cycle.
That is precisely why White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is lashing out this week, blasting the entire progressive party for their dirty tricks.
“They screwed up the process from the beginning. They rushed out there having not seen the transcript. They believed what they heard on cable news. They believed on a very unfortunate report in the Wall Street Journal that got picked up and misinterpreted on CNN,” she told White House reporters on Wednesday.
Conway specifically called out Pelosi for rushing into impeaching President Donald Trump.
“Nancy Pelosi screwed up and got ahead of herself, thinking that she knew what was in the transcript and that we would never release the transcript,” she said.
She also criticized Pelosi for falsely repeating that she would not rush into a serious process like impeachment.
“Nancy Pelosi broke faith with her own commitment to not rush into an impeachment inquiry until an investigation was completed,” she said.
And she wasn’t finished there.
Conway described impeachment as an “extraordinary event” and said Democrats had irrevocably botched the secretive process since it started.
“The process has been ill-conceived from the beginning,” she said. “You can’t unscramble that egg. You can’t put that toothpaste back in that tube.”
The President and his team have been painting impeachment as a flawed process for well over a week now, looking to convince the American people that the false pretenses and secretive behavior negates any supposed “dirt” the Democrats have accrued.
