Democrat to draw up articles of impeachment over Donald Trump’s Charlottesville comments

August 17, 2017

  Donald Trump stirred up a hornet’s nest the other day when he gave a press conference in which he said there was violence coming from both sides during the Charlottesville riot. Now one Democrat is drawing up articles of impeachment because he claims the President “failed the presidential test of moral leadership” by not forcefully condemning Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

  Here is more:

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) announced Thursday he is taking the first step towards implementing impeachment articles against President Trump for his remarks on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cohen claims that Trump supported white supremacists in the deadly rally Saturday when the president condemned the violence “on both sides” following the attack.

“Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the president said ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’ There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen,” Cohen said in a statement.

Cohen added that he plans to start the impeachment process against Trump because he feels the president “failed the presidential test of moral leadership.”

  Now if you heard the press conference, which apparently this Democrat did not, you know this is a gross, and I would add purposeful, misinterpretation of what Donald Trump actually said.

  The President never said there were good Nazis or good Klansmen as Steve Cohen is claiming but rather he said there were good people there who were not Nazis and Klansmen who showed up at the rally simply to protest the removal of Confederate statues.

  If this is true, and I do not know if it is, we should be questioning the judgement of people who would show up at a rally in which Nazis and Klanmen were attending and not condemning the President on false pretenses. Even if it is not true at worse Donald Trump is guilty of speaking without knowing all the facts.

  We can question Donald Trump’s response, and personally I do not find anything wrong with it, but to claim he is a Nazi is just a little bit over the top to put it mildly. This might play well with the Democratic base but I have to wonder how this plays with mainstream Americans. The Democrats are trying everything in order to bring down Donald Trump but the misogyny angle did not work and the Russian collusion angle seems to be falling apart so now they are playing the “Nazi card” and I do not think this will work either.

        Orange is the new black Steve, the new popular thing!
        I didn’t realize there was a Netflix tv series about that, but just viewing this ‘trailer’ you’ll notice ALOT of indoctrination and social conditioning ‘propaganda’ that will be ‘monkey see and hear will do’ : -/
        [I was taught by my 7th (or 8th) grade teacher to spell that work (being spelled today as “a lot”) as alot. She told me, “that’s how you spell a “lot” of land … this refers to “alot” of something.” … she stated it better 🙂 So, there’s alot of potential in ‘a lot’ that he wants to purchase. And that’s the way it is! because she told me so!] 😉

        I knew it was a show but that link was the first time I watched even a second of it, I didn’t know what it was about. There was certainly some interesting things in there wasn’t there?

    Also, this is going on and ‘really’ escalated during the last ‘fraud regime admin.’ Why Was This ‘Crowd Hire’ Company Recruiting $25 An Hour ‘Political Activists’ In Charlotte Last Week? Now who was behind that 🤔
    When those evil nutty ones use their $$$ to plant aviators and get paid protestors of course things will happen for their cause of Nimrod Luciferian World Domination – another reason the dem*s are getting rid of historical monuments ~ de-nationalizing.

      There is also a report that the person who organized this rally was an Occupy Democrat until recently, it is sounding like a set up.

        Any time the youth (and high emotions) are stirred by ‘a cause’ of the ‘evil ones’ we know the source and objective.
        I think the moon is too small to use to contain all the polluted and corrupt hearts and minds and that’s why they’re looking at Mars – even thought they don’t realize it or know why (it’s where they’re going to be sent 🙂
        Meanwhile, saw this: RUSH: I think the mayor of Charlottesville took a page out of the book from the mayor from Baltimore. What was her name? Forget her name. Remember where she said — what was her phrase? Give them space. Give them room so they can get it out of their system, give them space.
        Look, the police were ordered to stand down in Charlottesville. Somebody wanted that to happen, folks. The police were told to stand down. The police are saying, “No, no, no, no. We were retreating to go get our riot gear.” Well, why didn’t you show up in riot gear? If you retreated to get the riot gear, why didn’t you come back with the riot gear on if that’s where you went?” They were ordered to stand down. … It’s not spontaneous. It’s being done on purpose. It is reported as though it’s all spontaneous. We’re back to your buddy Hegel, and Bunker’s Alinsky’s warning.

    David Horowitz points in his opinion piece one group had a permit and the other did not . One group has 500 supporters the other has several thousand armed militants.
    The US is lost. The color revolution is occurring.

      People seem to ignore the fact that only one group actually had a permit, it doesn’t fit the narrative.

    The McCain republicans and the corporatists are piling on behind anti-american domestic terrorists. There is blood in the water and the sharks are more than circling and nipping, they are now feeding. Until Trump kick starts his DOJ and Sessions the anarchists will win each battle and eventually the war.

      Why Sessions is just standing by is beyond me, it is time to start fighting back!

      The Irony is Sessions is focused on MS-13 and the saving the cities who are fighting Trump at every turn while he tries to save live.. Move on Sessions.
