'Impeach Already!' Leftists Demand
Activists plan — what else? — protests for impeachment over the weekend.
The Trump-hating Left (but we repeat ourselves) has grown impatient of House Democrats’ reluctance to launch impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. And who can blame them? Democrats have pushed the impeachment narrative ever since he took office.
However, instead of taking decisive action, the Democrats have offered little to those in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome beyond a bunch of doublespeak. Recall House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comment last week: “I don’t want to see [Trump] impeached; I want to see him in prison.” Or how about House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who two weeks ago stated that there “certainly is” justification for impeaching Trump, only to later offer excuses: “Impeachment is a political act, and you cannot impeach a president if the American people will not support it.”
Perhaps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was onto something when she noted that Democrats are “kind of sitting on our hands.”
Let’s get this straight: Trump deserves to be impeached and even imprisoned for “crimes” that Democrats can’t quite seem to find but assure us are there. This is partisan rhetoric, pure and simple. Robert Mueller’s exhaustive and one-sided investigation found no crime nor action on the part of Trump that justifies impeachment — and the Democrats know it. That’s why they’re playing coy.
But will their hand be forced by that hard-left base? Last week, CNN’s Chris Cuomo threw down the gauntlet: “Where it leads, how it ends, you can’t know and that should not be your guide. Do your duty. This is D-Day. We’re celebrating people making the ultimate sacrifice only out of a matter of duty.”
So Cuomo is invoking the blood our men shed on Omaha Beach to push for a bogus impeachment? And CNN wonders why no one is watching.
Tomorrow, a bunch of leftist activists will take to the streets in several cities across the country for an #ImpeachTrump Day of Action. But if history is any guide, the Left may end up regretting its absurd temper tantrum.
