House Intel Chair Adam Schiff did has damnedest, but it just wasn’t damning enough.
Last week’s public impeachment hearings were supposed to be a slam dunk for Schiff, who believed he could sway enough of We The People’s opinions to support the idea of reversing the 2016 election through carefully curated witnesses and steered testimony.
What he ended up with, instead, was a scathing reminder that the Democrats have been at this for years, and that Joe Biden and his son still have some explaining to do in regard to Ukraine.
The fizzling of the “formal impeachment inquiry” even has some Democrats tucking their tail and running away from The I Word as fast as they can, like Rep. Brenda Lawrence.
Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) stated Sunday that she no longer believes the impeachment of President Donald Trump is the route Democrats should take to winning back the White House.
Lawrence’s comments on the House impeachment process came during a discussionwith Charlie LeDuff on the Michigan radio show No BS News Hour. Instead of removal from office, Lawrence hopes her colleagues will seek to censure the president.
We are so close to an election. I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of taking him out of office. I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable.
I want to censure. I want it on the record that the House of Representatives did their job and they told this president and any president coming behind him that this is unacceptable behavior and, under our Constitution, we will not allow it.
But, then, the party struck back.
After her radio remarks blew up overnight, Lawrence issued a statement declaring “I still support impeachment”:
“I was an early supporter for impeachment in 2017,” Lawrence says. “The House Intelligence Committee followed a very thorough process in holding hearings these past two weeks. The information they revealed confirmed that this President has abused the power of his office, therefore I continue to support impeachment.
“However, I am very concerned about Senate Republicans and the fact that they would find this behavior by the President acceptable.”
The Democrats will be rushing to decide their next course of action, as a report from the DOJ’s Investigator General due out on December 9th could violently swing public opinion back into the favor of the President.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
