Democrats must have spent too many nights down in the Capitol basement. They are coming apart at the seams. They can’t understand why so many Americans don’t see President Donald Trump as a threat to the free world like they do.
As support for impeachment plunges, they are becoming even more incendiary in their rhetoric toward Trump and his supporters.
Another Democratic House lawmaker is urging Republicans to join in the fight to wrest control of power from the man he views as dangerous before the upcoming elections.
Rep. Stephen Lynch (D- MA) raised the alarm on CNN’s Newsroom Wednesday claiming, “I personally think there’s a greater danger leaving this president in office than taking him out through the legal impeachment process. I actually believe that.”
His call to action reflected the same sentiment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who wrote a delusional memo to her caucus last Monday.
“The facts are uncontested that the president abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests. The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide,” wrote Pelosi.
“That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the president is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections,” she wrote.
These lawmakers are supplanting the wisdom of voters with their own without identifying any criminal behavior on Trump’s part that justifies removal from office. Democrats are in danger alright — of losing the 2020 election and their House majority to the Republicans once again.
They are threatening to impeach Trump for asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate allegations that their frontrunner for the presidential nomination, former vice president Joe Biden, and his son Hunter may have been involved in alleged corruption in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden was being paid $50,000 a month to serve on the board of Burisma while the company, which was drilling for gas in Ukraine, was losing $1.8 billion it had received in aid.
They allege that Trump was engaging in public corruption for withholding $400,000 in aid from Ukraine in a July phone call to Zelensky, using the funds to pressure the Ukraine president for ‘dirt’ on his political rival. They accuse Trump of inviting foreign interference in the 2020 elections
Republicans say the July 25 call summary shows no conditionality or evidence of pressure. Both President Zelensky and President Trump have publicly and repeatedly said there was no pressure to investigate the president’s political rivals.
The Ukrainian government was not aware that U.S. security assistance was delayed at the time of the July 25 phone call and the United States provided security assistance to Ukraine. Trump met with President Zelensky without Ukraine ever investigating his political rivals.
Lynch said, “What we need is Republicans to defend and protect the Constitution as they have taken an oath to do. They’ll be— look, there’s overwhelming evidence here. This is not a close case, to be honest with you.”
He added, “For us in the House, and I think for most Democrats, we really don’t have a choice. If this isn’t impeachable conduct, if this is not impeachable conduct, then nothing is, nothing is. This is an attempt to undermine our democracy. This is an attempt to undermine the rule of law. What are we about in this country? Are we just going to say okay, we’re going to be like Russia and North Korea where, okay, we let the strongmen do what they want and we have no rule of law?
The totalitarians we should fear are Democrats who are pushing ahead with impeachment in the midst of a general election campaign. Voting is scheduled to take place next year on November 3.
Lynch would have us believe that Trump is a dictator while they continue to wage war on free speech and due process, reject the outcome of a free and fair election and seek to oust a democratically elected president.
Fear is gripping the party as it watches voters rail in rage and disgust at their partisan impeachment spectacle. They were convinced it was the surefire way to rid them of the Orange Man. Now their great hope is dying in the light as poll after poll shows voter support either static, retreating or plummeting.
Late entrants into their Democratic primary like former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick have injected more chaos tinto their unpredictable race. They still have not coalesced around a viable general election candidate and time is running out.
They are still clinging to their last vine, hoping the upcoming hearings in the House Judiciary Committee can turn public opinion around. The longer they spend investigating instead of legislating, the deeper in the hole they will sink.
