On Wednesday morning, Democratic members of Congress introduced their articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump due to their “great concern for our country and our Constitution.” However, they forgot one very important detail and, as usual, have ended up looking like a bunch of idiots.
Of course, the idea that the Democrats have “great concern for our country and our Constitution” is laughable. They have seemingly made it their life’s work to shred our founding document and erase everything it has stood for since its signing.
Just look at the way they are constantly waging an assault on the Second Amendment, pushing for gun control after each mass shooting, even though it has been proven time and time again that gun control does not work and would not have stopped any of the various gunmen who have killed American citizens.
Just look at the way they disregard the First Amendment, attacking anything that does not align with their party’s agenda as “hate speech.” Freedom of the press? Forget about it! The media has been in the pocket of the Democratic Party for years and anyone who tries to break with their narrative is quickly silenced.
These are just a few examples of the left’s “great concern for our country and our Constitution.” Nevertheless, Democratic members of Congress insist that the reason they want Trump to be removed from office is so the country and the values inscribed within the Constitution are protected.
“We’re calling upon the House to begin impeachment hearings immediately. It’s not a call for a vote, it’s a call for hearings,” said Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), who was joined by Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), Rep. Al Green (D-TX), and Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) on Wednesday.
“When i see a crime, i call 911, i dont stop to build consensus among my neighbors,” tweeted Rep. Gutiérrez. “If a crime is committed, you convene a grand jury, and in this case that is the House Judiciary Committee and we need to get started.”
“We have thought long & hard about this process & are taking actions to #ImpeachNow to protect our #Constitution, country & constituents,” seconded Rep. Espaillat.
Cohen said they have five articles on which they want to impeach Trump:
- Obstruction of justice
- Violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause
- Violation of the domestic emoluments clause
- Undermining the federal judiciary
- Undermining freedom of the press
However, Cohen conceded, “I don’t expect the House Judiciary Committee, which has operated like a branch of the administration, to take up hearings.”
Indeed, the Democratic witchhunt which has become the movement to impeach Trump stands absolutely no chance of actually culminating in the impeachment of the president. It is little more than a politically expedient publicity stunt for those seeking reelection in 2018.
In keeping with the left’s slim chance at succeeding in impeaching Trump, IJR reported, “While this was a first step to get Trump removed from the Oval Office, it seems unlikely it will proceed forward anytime soon, as Republicans control the House and Senate.”
Frankly, taxpayers ought to be outraged that their hard-earned cash is going to fund these ridiculous stunts. Could the Democrats think of nothing better to do than filing these bogus articles of impeachment which will never lead to anything concrete happening? How pathetic. What a bunch of idiots.
