If the Democrats want anyone in the White House to take their “formal impeachment inquiry seriously”, they will first need to start taking it seriously themselves.
To realize why the left isn’t really trying to impeach the President, you must first understand two things: First, that this entire fiasco will inevitably die a swift death in the Senate, and that this is now an election year. The Democrats are fully aware that they will not be impeaching or removing Donald Trump due to the Senate being a Republican stronghold. So, the next best thing for the liberal left would be for Donald Trump to lose in 2020. The incumbent President has been fundraising at a level far beyond what anyone in the Democratic Party seems capable of, meaning that the left is at a sever disadvantage when it comes to political ad buys.
Hence the impeachment.
By filling the entire mainstream media, from stem to stern with impeachment mania and public hearings, the Democrats are essentially running a 24/7 anti-Trump campaign ad on cable television.
Another bit of evidence that this is all a ruse is the fact that the House committees conducting the impeachment probe seem to have no interest in using their powers of contempt to compel White House witnesses to testify. This relaxed atmosphere has made it highly unlikely that any further White House officials will find themselves willingly testifying, as evidenced by the events of this week.
Two White House officials skipped their scheduled impeachment inquiry testimony behind closed doors Tuesday, reportedly defying their subpoenas to appear.
In a new U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) memo that came to light on Tuesday, the Trump administration argued that Democrat impeachment investigators’ attempt to compel testimony from executive branch officials are “legally invalid” unless they allow government attorneys to accompany the witnesses.
“The assistance of agency counsel” is needed because testimony has the potential to disclose information “protected by executive privilege,” the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel noted in a memo dated November 1.
We must also consider the fact that the Democrats’ unwillingness to force these officials to testify allows them to drag this “inquiry” on even longer, involving ever more layers of the judicial system in order to compel their appearance…which is just more free air time for these anti-Trump tirades.
The plan would be genius if it weren’t so diabolical.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
