Impeachment Fatigue

From Inauguration Day to the present, Democrats have been after impeachment.

“The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun,” was the headline of The Washington Post … on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017. For the past three years, IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH has been the Left’s drumbeat day after day after day after day. Americans have gone deaf to this charade. Democrats wanted to remove a president duly elected by American citizens before he had a chance to do one thing in the Oval Office.

I remember a justice system where you were innocent until proven guilty. But not with President Trump; the Left says, “He’s guilty, so prove to us he’s innocent.” Anyone remember Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accusing presidential candidate Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes for 10 years? He told Romney to prove he had. Later, when asked by the media about his lying, Reid simply said, “He didn’t get elected, did he?” So, lying to achieve your goals has become accepted in politics?

With President Trump we first had “Russian collusion.” Nearly two years of a special counsel investigation costing over $30 million, found nothing. Open hearings with Special Counsel Robert Mueller were a huge disappointment. No evidence whatsoever! Someone needs to shake down Adam Schiff to get the evidence he told us he had!

Then came the “whistleblower,” but he was not really a whistleblower. President Trump talked to the Ukrainian president and leftists didn’t like what he said. Strangely, no one who testified actually heard the call. The accusations were of corruption, bribery, treason, and, my personal favorite, a quid pro quo. Apparently, none of these polled well so we had two lame Articles of Impeachment voted on by the House of Representatives.

But thank God, the Left was able to get this done before Christmas because Trump was a clear and present danger to the country. He needed to be removed yesterday! Then a month passed where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not send the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial. She wanted a fair trial, she said. I’m all for it. Let’s use the same rules the House used! They should be fine with that, right? Finally judgment day for President Trump has arrived. The Senate has the articles of impeachment and the trial will begin.

Wow, that took a lot of work to save the country from President Trump. I don’t know how they were able to get anything else done. Wait! Actually, they haven’t gotten anything done. Meanwhile, the economy is roaring along. Wages are up, the stock market has set more than 100 records, and unemployment for African-Americans, Hispanics, women, Asians, and teenagers is at an all-time low. Two of the top terrorists in the world have been killed and trade deals favorable to the U.S. (for a change) are being made. But all Speaker Pelosi has on her “to-do list” is to impeach Trump.

If laws were broken, and not just feelings hurt, let’s get evidence and then make a case. That’s why America is a nation that operates on the Rule of Law. Prove a crime was committed. “I don’t like him” is not a reason to tie our nation’s business up for three years. Move on!
