Democrats are after an elusive and mythical ‘Smoking Gun’ To Impeach Trump.
After what feels like a thousand angles tried by the Democrats to impeach President Trump they’re learning it will take more than false accusations and bogus evidence to ‘take down’ the President of the United States. Is it even worth trying, though? When everything seemingly has blown up in their faces? This is the Democrats we’re talking about so, who knows.
If the Democrat overloads take the majority of the House in the midterm elections they should be more hesitant to try and impeach President Trump. Even though their blood-thirsty constituents want nothing more than to see Republicans dismissed from their seats- their motives go beyond that. This was a telling story, take a look.
Democratic Representative Jerry Nadler, of New York, who was just elevated to ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee by his fellow Democrats, indicated he would rather have both Republicans and independents on board before seriously considering such an extreme measure, according to Politico. The political capital necessary for impeachment could be quite costly even if polls indicate many want the unpopular Trump gone.
“Impeachment, it’s not something you ought to welcome…It’s not something you want,” Nadler told Politico.
Nadler added that even if evidence came to light that could lead to a conviction for “high crimes or misdemeanors,” as the U.S. Constitution stipulates, Democrats would still need to take the country’s temperature.
”If we were in the majority and if we decide that the evidence isn’t there for impeachment—or even if the evidence is there, we decide it would tear the country apart too much, there’s no buy-in, there’s no bipartisanship and we shouldn’t do it for whatever reason—if we decide that, then it’s our duty to educate the country why we decided it,” Nadler said.
Representative Steve Cohen, a Democrat from Tennessee, has long been one of the top proponents for Trump’s impeachment, filing articles to start the process earlier this year, but even he stated to Politico that Democrats need a “smoking gun”…
