Thank you Brad Sherman, The Impeachment Trap is Sprung on Democrats!

You might remem­ber last month I prac­ti­cally begged Democ­rats to file arti­cles of impeach­ment against Pres­i­dent Trump:

The fact is Pres­i­dent Trump is much more like Tip than he is like Nixon, he has fin­ger on the pulse of the work­ing class of the nation and knows that an impeach­ment res­o­lu­tion would ener­gize his base to no end, fur­ther­more such a res­o­lu­tion would expose every Demo­c­rat in the place as the rad­i­cal left­ist they are and would have laud­able effects on elec­tion 2018.

I cited the exam­ple of Tip O’Neill dur­ing water­gate and fur­ther noted that such a res­o­lu­tion brought up for a vote at once would have a laud­able effect on House RINOS.

Fur­ther­more an impeach­ment vote now would put any repub­li­can in the house who might con­sider for one moment to vote for it on the spot. Such a pro-​impeach vote would guar­an­tee a pro-​trump pri­mary chal­lenge that would likely not end well for the sit­ting con­gress­man, after all con­sider what Robert Costa dis­cov­ered about GOP vot­ers when he left his bub­ble.

I even dared Max­ine Waters to get such a res­o­lu­tion submitted.

Well for­tu­nately for this admin­is­tra­tion Democ­rats nei­ther know his­tory or read this blog so guess what a Cal­i­for­nia Demo­c­rat just did:

Rep. Brad Sher­man (D-​CA) on Wednes­day offi­cially intro­duced an arti­cle of impeach­ment against Pres­i­dent Trump on the grounds of obstruct­ing justice.

“Recent dis­clo­sures by Don­ald Trump Jr. indi­cate that Trump’s cam­paign was eager to receive assis­tance from Rus­sia,” he said in a state­ment.

“It now seems likely that the Pres­i­dent had some­thing to hide when he tried to cur­tail the inves­ti­ga­tion of National Secu­rity Advi­sor Michael Flynn and the wider Rus­sia probe,” Sher­man added. “I believe his con­ver­sa­tions with, and sub­se­quent fir­ing of, FBI Direc­tor James Comey con­sti­tute Obstruc­tion of Justice.”

“I am intro­duc­ing Arti­cles of Impeach­ment to begin a long process to pro­tect our coun­try from abuse of power, obstruc­tion of jus­tice, and impul­sive, igno­rant incompetence.”

Tip O’Neill noted in his book an Impeach­ment res­o­lu­tion is priv­i­leged mean­ing any house mem­ber can bring it up at any time for an imme­di­ate vote.

As the Hill reports even Democ­rats have ques­tioned if this is a good idea:

This is the first time a law­maker has offered an impeach­ment arti­cle against Trump, and it comes as Democ­rats have debated whether it is polit­i­cally wise to press the case for impeach­ment at this time.

They’re right, it’s a trap and Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Sher­man has oblig­ingly walked into it.

If I’m the Trump admin­is­tra­tion I’d demand a vote imme­di­ately! I’d coor­di­nate with the House lead­er­ship to have it done at once.

Let’s the Democ­rats be forced to take a vote when they have no evi­dence to sup­port impeach­ment, a vote they know will hurt them on a sub­ject that they admit is a los­ing issue for them. Make those house mem­bers decide if they want to risk a pri­mary chal­lenger from the left if they vote while hurt­ing them nation­ally if they vote yes. Put every Sen­ate Demo­c­rat run­ning in a red state in 2018 in a posi­tion where they HAVE to have a posi­tion on impeach­ment that will either cost them their seat in a pri­mary or cost them their seat in the gen­eral and put every house RINO on the spot where they have to choose if they want a pri­mary chal­lenge by a Pro-​Trump candidate.

As far as I’m con­cern­ing the time for such a vote is NOW! Sher­man has led the Demo­c­rat cau­cus into the snare. It only remains to be seen if the admin­is­tra­tion and the GOP have the brains and the guts to spring it on them.

You might remember last month I practically begged Democrats to file articles of impeachment against President Trump:

The fact is President Trump is much more like Tip than he is like Nixon, he has finger on the pulse of the working class of the nation and knows that an impeachment resolution would energize his base to no end, furthermore such a resolution would expose every Democrat in the place as the radical leftist they are and would have laudable effects on election 2018.

I cited the example of Tip O’Neill during watergate and further noted that such a resolution brought up for a vote at once would have a laudable effect on House RINOS.

Furthermore an impeachment vote now would put any republican in the house who might consider for one moment to vote for it on the spot.  Such a pro-impeach vote would guarantee a pro-trump primary challenge that would likely not end well for the sitting congressman, after all consider what Robert Costa discovered about GOP voters when he left his bubble.

I even dared Maxine Waters to get such a resolution submitted.

Well fortunately for this administration Democrats neither know history or read this blog so guess what a California Democrat just did:

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) on Wednesday officially introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump on the grounds of obstructing justice.

“Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” he said in a statement.

“It now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russia probe,” Sherman added. “I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.”

“I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.”

Tip O’Neill noted in his book an Impeachment resolution is privileged meaning any house member can bring it up at any time for an immediate vote.

As the Hill reports even Democrats have questioned if this is a good idea:

This is the first time a lawmaker has offered an impeachment article against Trump, and it comes as Democrats have debated whether it is politically wise to press the case for impeachment at this time.

They’re right, it’s a trap and Representative Sherman has obligingly walked into it.

If I’m the Trump administration I’d demand a vote immediately!  I’d coordinate with the House leadership to have it done at once.

Let’s the Democrats be forced to take a vote when they have no evidence to support impeachment, a vote they know will hurt them on a subject that they admit is a losing issue for them.  Make those house members decide if they want to risk a primary challenger from the left if they vote while hurting them nationally if they vote yes.  Put every Senate Democrat running in a red state in 2018 in a position where they HAVE to have a position on impeachment that will either cost them their seat in a primary or cost them their seat in the general and put every house RINO on the spot where they have to choose if they want a primary challenge by a Pro-Trump candidate.

As far as I’m concerning the time for such a vote is NOW!  Sherman has led the Democrat caucus into the snare.  It only remains to be seen if the administration and the GOP have the brains and the guts to spring it on them.
