Democrats will impeach President Trump if they win a majority in November, no matter how much their leaders try to pretend otherwise.
The Democrat leadership is doing its utmost to play down the prospect of impeaching the President. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in June that impeachment is “not the path the party should go on,” claiming it’s a “divisive issue” and “not a priority.”
Of course, the only reason impeachment is “not a priority” for Pelosi is because the Democrat leadership fears that the threat of impeachment will galvanize Republican voters to flock to the polls in droves in order to defend President Trump.
Another concern for Democrats is the support of independents, which will be crucial for them to regain the majority on the House in November — and independents don’t particularly like impeachment talk.
So when Nancy Pelosi says impeachment is not a priority, what she really means is that it’s not a priority at the moment.
The piece goes on to say that the Dems really don’t have any choice since 80% of their base want impeachment to happen and if they fail it will likely cost them in 2020.
I actually tend to agree with this and think Kirk is dead on in his assessment,
What’s more, I do not think that the opposition is at all fooled by the tactics of the Democratic leadership not to mention it.
Not only has Trumped mentioned on multiple occasions that this will happen if the Democrats win enough seats in the 2018 election, but other GOP pundits are also assuming that this will be the case.
I also believe it has to happen, but before we start moving in that direction I would just like for there to be a plan in place for handling President Pence.
You know what I’m saying?
