Answering the call from the media and Democrats alike, the House Judiciary committee will move forward with an impeachment investigation into President Trump this week. According to reports, the official move will come on Wednesday. CNN reports that over 130 House Democrats support the move on impeachment.
The media has been pushing the impeachment narrative for months. Democrats have been split on impeachment since the release of the Mueller report. The information that they believed the Mueller report would provide never presented. Most Democrats and many anti-Trump Republicans have supported the potential impeachment move.
According to The NY Times, the focus will be on potential payments to women, promised pardons to officials and profit off government business by Trump’s hotels. This seems to indicate that Democrats have abandoned the Mueller report and potential Russia meddling accusations that they have claimed for months. Will the public buy into the new focus being they were promised Mueller would deliver impeachment material?
In a recent opinion piece, Julian Zelizer called on Democrats to go big or go home on impeachment. In the article, Zelizer said that Democrats must unite in this impeachment inquiry against Trump similar to the past, such as with Richard Nixon. Zelizer states that Democrats didn’t wait until they had a smoking gun, they used investigations to find the smoking gun.
Unfortunately for Zelizer, he leaves out the fact that there was indeed a smoking gun for the judiciary committee to act on in the Nixon situation. After the men were arrested following the burglary of the DNC, multiple connections were found and obvious attempts at obstruction took place. This is exactly what Democrats wanted from Mueller, but he didn’t deliver.
Democrats and anti-Trumpers are only focused on one thing – impeaching Trump at all costs. In a recent scroll through Twitter, statements were being made that President Trump only won because of treason and that it doesn’t matter if they find anything or not, he should just be impeached.
Others commented that the GOP and conservatives alike do not care about the constitution anymore. Yet, conservatives are not the ones trying to circumvent the constitution to eliminate the electoral college or force socialism on Americans. It’s just another instance of how the Democrats blame Republicans for what they are trying to do.
