Trump Impeached — Now Ahead of All Dem Candidates

House Democrats impeach Trump on a party-line vote. They’re actually helping him.

On the eve of the House Democrats’ somber gleeful vote to impeach President Donald Trump, a new poll showed him beating every potential Democrat candidate in hypothetical head-to-head contests in 2020. The USA Today/Suffolk University Poll observed, “The national survey, taken as the House of Representatives planned an impeachment vote and the Senate a trial, showed Trump defeating former Vice President Joe Biden by 3 percentage points, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 5 points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by 8 points.” Clearly, the Democrats’ partisan impeachment gamble has not played out as they had hoped.

Having gone all-in, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and company were left with little choice but to continue the charade, so on Wednesday the House held the impeachment vote. As expected, both articles of impeachment passed. Pelosi sought to moralize the vote, boasting, “I could not be prouder or more inspired by the moral courage of the House Democrats. We never asked one of [them] how they were going to vote. We never whipped this vote.” She honestly expects us to believe she had no idea how this would turn out?

More significantly, Pelosi failed to garner the bipartisan support she had previously insisted was necessary when considering such a serious move as impeachment. In fact, it is the Republicans who can claim the bipartisan banner, as two Democrats crossed the aisle to vote against the “abuse of power” charge, and a third Democrat joined them in opposing the charge of “obstructing Congress.”

It’s now official — Democrats have successfully lowered the bar on impeachment to now include partisan policy disagreements. Furthermore, Pelosi plans to delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate until she deems Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s rules to be “fair.” This is a clear play by Pelosi to continue the false narrative initiated by Chuck Schumer, who vacuously claims that Republicans aren’t playing fair. As usual, the Democrats’ definition of “fairness” is to acquiesce to their every demand.

But McConnell, who is no stranger to the Democrats’ long history of disingenuous demands for “fairness,” pointedly responded: “House Democrats embarked on the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history. The framers built the Senate to provide stability … to keep partisan passions from boiling over. Moments like this are why the United States Senate exists.” In other words, take a hike.

Trump took the occasion in stride. As Democrats were voting, he held a rally before a packed house in Battle Creek, Michigan, where he taunted the Democrats: “It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached.” He further blasted “the do-nothing Democrats” who he noted “do nothing” beyond “declaring their deep hatred and disdain for [the] American voter.” He added that their impeachment is “political suicide.”

During his speech, a staffer interrupted Trump to inform him of the final vote, to which he commented, “The Republicans have never been so affronted but they’ve never been so united as they are right now.” He then observed, “I’m the first person to ever get impeached and there’s no crime!”

Finally, while Democrats and the Leftmedia spent the evening gleefully relishing the House’s partisan impeachment vote, in the broader scheme of things they have just increased the likelihood of Trump winning in 2020.
