Democrats Have 'Full-Fledged Case of Trump Derangement Syndrome'
"Since the moment I won the election, the Democrat Party has been possessed by Impeachment Fever."
The House will “debate” for six hours today before voting on whether to impeach President Donald Trump. The outcome is a foregone conclusion — in fact, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi never would have even begun entertaining the idea of impeachment if she wasn’t sure she had the votes to do it. The constant churn speculating otherwise is nothing more than political theater.
The vote will likely occur during or just before Trump holds a campaign rally in Michigan. Out on a limb — that’s not a coincidence.
But the real news is yesterday’s blistering letter from Trump to Pelosi. Here are some key excerpts:
This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history.
The Articles of Impeachment introduced by the House Judiciary Committee are not recognizable under any standard of Constitutional theory, interpretation, or jurisprudence. They include no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses…
You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying “I pray for the President,” when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense.
Everyone, you included, knows what is really happening. Your chosen candidate lost the election in 2016, in an Electoral College landslide (306-227), and you and your party have never recovered from this defeat. You have developed a full-fledged case of what many in the media call Trump Derangement Syndrome. …
Speaker Pelosi, you admitted just last week at a public forum that your party’s impeachment effort has been going on for “two and a half years,” long before you ever heard about a phone call with Ukraine. … This impeachment drive has nothing to do with Ukraine, or the totally appropriate conversation I had with its new president. It only has to do with your attempt to undo the election of 2016 and steal the election of 2020! …
You and your party are desperate to distract from America’s extraordinary economy, incredible jobs boom, record stock market, soaring confidence, and flourishing citizens. Your party simply cannot compete with our record. …
You are the ones interfering in America’s elections. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing Justice. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain.
Our Founders feared the tribalization of partisan politics, and you are bringing their worst fears to life.
Perhaps most insulting of all is your false display of solemnity. You apparently have so little respect for the American People that you expect them to believe that you are approaching this impeachment somberly, reservedly, and reluctantly. No intelligent person believes what you are saying. Since the moment I won the election, the Democrat Party has been possessed by Impeachment Fever. There is no reticence. This is not a somber affair. You are making a mockery of impeachment and you are scarcely concealing your hatred of me, of the Republican Party, and tens of millions of patriotic Americans. The voters are wise, and they are seeing straight through this empty, hollow, and dangerous game you are playing.
I have no doubt the American people will hold you and the Democrats fully responsible in the upcoming 2020 election. They will not soon forgive your perversion of justice and abuse of power.
And that adequately sums up this farcical proceeding. The president nailed it in his letter, punching back hard for what he correctly sees as a morally bankrupt partisan charade.
