House Democrats float the idea of delaying impeachment

December 19, 2019

  Last night the Democrats made history by making Donald Trump the first President to be impeached not based on “high crimes and misdemeanors” because they believe his alleged abuses of power are so great that he poses a grave threat to our democracy.

  He is such a threat in fact that now that he has been impeached the Democrats are actually floating the idea of not sending the articles of impeachment over to the Senate for a trial right away.

 Here is more on this strange new development:

A group of House Democrats is pushing Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders to withhold the articles of impeachment against President Trump that emerged from the House on Wednesday, potentially delaying a Senate trial for months.

The notion of impeaching Trump but holding the articles in the House has gained traction among some of the political left as a way to potentially force Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, to conduct a trial on more favorable terms for Democrats. And if no agreement is reached, some have argued, the trial could be delayed indefinitely, denying Trump an expected acquittal.

  The phrase “more favorable terms for Democrats” really tells us all we need to know; this is strictly driven by partisan politics. If you honestly believe Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy, and is on the verge of declaring himself a dictator as we have heard the left claim, than to not move to remove him from office as soon as possible is a dereliction of duty. Of they were truly convicted on this they would bring the evidence forward and fight for the country.

  The brutal truth is that the Democrats know Donald Trump is going to be acquitted in the Senate, they  know he will not be removed from office and the dirty little secret is they know he has done nothing deserving of removal from office. But they have been driven to this point by their rabid, radical base and now they are trying to back down without it looking like that is what they are doing.

  The plan all along was not removal from office, it was to put a black mark on Donald Trump’s record and to have this hanging over his head during the election. If the President is acquitted quickly it will not help them politically and so they are looking to delay the inevitable as long as possible so they can continue to use impeachment as a political tool as long as possible.

    If Trump is such a threat to our Republic answer this one simple question. Why would the democrats want to be completely disarmed in the face of this threat? Along with their drive to impeach there is a parallel drive to upend the Second Amendment and render the people defenseless. Someone is not doing deep thinking and I don’t think it is those of us who defend the Bill of Rights.

      I think you nailed it! If Trump were the danger they claim he is it is irresponsible for the not to move impeachment but this shows us exactly what they are really all about.

    One doesn’t need to have a high IQ to figure this one out…. even us knuckle draggers get the drift. Called pushing it a bridge too far.

    Only one’s guilty of crimes, are the Democrats playing partisan politics. Because Trump has them by the short hairs…(Let’s not forget the complicit leftist media in the crimes part!)
