The Democrats have not made the case that he did anything illegal, cheated or stole or whatever else in Ukraine. And, by the way, the American people are perfectly capable of understanding, “Wait a minute. I thought this was all about Russia. Now you’re saying that the guy committed an impeachable offense in a phone call to Ukraine, and we’ve seen the transcript,” and still in all of this, you can’t go ask anybody, what did Trump do and have anybody tell you.
I’m telling you, this has been a giant bomb, because all it has been is an effort to convince the American people that Trump didn’t deserve to win in 2016, and they haven’t made that case. They haven’t made the case that the election of 2016 should be overturned. They were never gonna be able to make that case, and they haven’t even come close to it. They’re flailing, folks. It’s embarrassing. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/10/19
FoxNews.com reports that
Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., said that while she is worried about division within the nation, it is “highly unlikely” she will vote against impeaching President Trump.
On Tuesday morning, House Democrats unveiled articles of impeachment against the president, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress regarding his interactions with Ukraine.
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with hosts Bill Hemmer and Heather Childers, Dingell echoed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, D-Calif., statements that it is a “sad day for our country.”
Dingell said that, while she is waiting to read the formal recommendations by the House Judiciary Committee, she thinks there has been a “lot of evidence that the president did hold up money to the Ukraine that had been appropriated by the Congress in exchange for investigating a potential political candidate.”
“I was elected to protect our Constitution and our democracy,” the congresswoman continued. “And, that’s what my vote is going to reflect. Have we in some way endangered our national security? And I think things that I’ve seen and the obstruction of justice lead me to be very concerned.”
She added that her voting “no” on impeachment is probably “highly unlikely,” but that she thinks it’s a “very individual moral decision.”
“I’m worried about interference on our next election,” she said.
Meantime, a new poll showed support for impeachment going down among voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Impeachment and removal is opposed by 50.8 percent of voters in Michigan, 52.2 percent of voters in Pennsylvania, and 57.9 percent of voters in Wisconsin, according to the Firehouse/Optimus December Battleground State Poll.
Dingell responded by saying she “wasn’t elected to do what was popularly right.”
“I did not come out for impeachment last summer when everybody else around me was. And, as I’ve said before, Tom Steyer bought 40 ads against me, because I am worried about how divided the country is.”
I am sure that she is because WashingtonTimes.com reports that the majority of Americans do not want our 45th President impeached.
A majority of Americans now oppose impeaching and removing President Trump from office, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll Tuesday that signals Democrats’ month of hearings to make their case has failed.
Quinnipiac found 51% of registered voters surveyed said they don’t want to see the president ousted through impeachment. That’s the first time the number has been above 50% since before Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry in late September.
Another 45% do want to see the president impeached and forced out.
So, a majority of Americans, as confirmed by the two polls above, do not believe the B.S. which the Democrats have been continuously shoveling toward the American public for the last 3 years.
I’m betting that a lot of the House Dems representing Red Districts are extremely nervous right now.
In fact, there is a story going around that 15-20 of the House Dems are seriously thinking about voting no in impeaching Trump.
That places Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in quite a dilemma.
I do not believe that Pelosi and the rest of the old guard Democrats in the House, with the exclusion of Schiff and Nadler, actually wanted to impeach Trump in the first place.
Sure, they mouthed off about it a lot but that was just to get millenials’ support.
The Squad and the rest of the young Marxists among them forced the issue, putting continuous pressure on Pelosi, Stoyer, and the rest until they were forced into this laughable attempt at Impeachment which resulted in two very weak charges, or Articles of Impeachment.
The Democrats know that they do not stand a snowball’s chance in Hell of getting the Senate to impeach Trump.
So, Pelosi now has to figure out the best way to somehow “save face”.
Her options are to allow the vote to fail or to somehow muster the votes to pass it and sent it to the Senate where the Republican majority will either dismiss it or acquit the President after a Senate Trial.
Congress is now sitting at 9% popularity rating due to the self-centered political chicanery of the Democrats.
With the stupid political strategy of not doing anything for their constituents which they have displayed since Donald J. Trump was elected President, it is a wonder that their popularity is not polling in negative numbers.
They have dug their own hole and it could not happen to a more deserving bunch of popinjays.
