In a desperate move to prevent Trump from picking yet another SCOTUS justice, Democrats including Pelosi have threatened to impeach him. Their last impeachment has been seen as a violation of the Constitution, what will this impeachment be considered? Undeterred, President Trump gave them a clear warning of what will happen if they dare to do that.
Many Americans consider the Democrats’ impeachment of Trump last year to be a huge farce. The Constitution states that Congress can only impeach a president for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” But Democrats impeached him over vague accusations, such as “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.” Some believe they violated the Constitution to impeach a president who, unlike most, was putting Americans ahead of special interest groups.
Now, Democrats are trying to intimidate the president by saying they’d impeach him again. Over what, his Constitutional duty to appoint a new justice? They are openly admitting they will abuse their slim majority in the House just to stop Trump and Senate Republicans from picking a new justice (even though that wouldn’t work).
And Democrats say Trump is insulting our traditions!
A move like that by the Dems would be disgraceful, vile, underhanded, and un-Constitutional to the highest degree. So, they’ll probably try it. But it would also be totally suicidal. They are already on a razor’s edge when it comes to the election. Their only “advantage” has been biased polls that give Biden a lead over Trump. Everything else suggests Trump is going to win by a large margin. (He’s even returned to his legendary rallies, calling them “peaceful protests.)
President Trump set the record straight over impeachment. He said if they did it, this would happen.
Speaking on Fox and Friends, Trump stated, “I heard yesterday, I heard if I do it, if I do it, they’re going to impeach me. So they’re impeaching me for doing what I constitutionally have to do. Here’s the thing … and I think then we win the election, then we win all elections if they do that. You saw what happened the last time, my numbers went way up last time they did it … if they do, my numbers will go up. I think we’ll win the entire election. I think we’ll win the House. I think we’re going to win back the House, I really do. I think we’re going to win the House anyway.”
Trump also asserted that Democrats would not hesitate if the roles were reversed, saying, “If the Democrats were in the same position, there is zero chance that they wouldn’t do it, just so you understand. So now they want to pack the courts … zero chance that they wouldn’t. They wouldn’t even talk about it.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Trump made it clear that if Democrats impeach him over his Constitutional duty to pick a new justice, they’d lose any chance of winning the election. Not just the presidential election, but crucial elections for the future of the House.
Republicans had a record number of new candidates fighting for House seats—more than when they flipped the House the last time. After last year’s impeachment mess, support for Pelosi and Democrats in Congress is at an all-time low. There is a good chance Republicans will flip the House just on that. But if Pelosi tries to impeach Trump again? It’s game over.
The only reason they impeached him in 2019 was because they could. They had enough votes to stonewall Republicans and force the issue through. When it went to the Senate, it died quickly. Today, the only reason Democrats can impeach Trump is because they still have the votes. Not because he’s done anything impeachable.
But perhaps they should try. This Congress has proven they have no brains. Let’s see Crazy Nancy try once again to destroy Democrats’ reputation with another impeachment. Imagine what Trump would say or do then!
