When Your Enemy Tells You What He Will Do, Believe Him

Or her.

Some enter­tain­ment to look for­ward to; and when I say enter­tain­ment, I mean war.

The White House antic­i­pates a Demo­c­ra­tic House will vote to impeach Pres­i­dent Trump – but that his oppo­nents won’t be able to muster the 67 Sen­ate votes needed to throw him out of office.

Trump advi­sors in and out­side the White House have begun spec­u­lat­ing about sce­nar­ios months before vot­ers even go to the polls for Novem­ber elec­tions that will be crit­i­cal to what comes next for the Trump presidency.

If Democ­rats do take con­trol of the cham­ber – which would fit tra­di­tional off-​year pat­terns even as their edge in generic polls has nar­rowed in recent weeks – a far greater level of over­sight and scrutiny is a certainty.

Impeach­ment also could fol­low, even as House lead­ers urge cau­tion in speak­ing about it.

If we lose the House, it’s a given that they’ll try to get a vote to impeach,’ an out­side Trump advi­sor told the Wash­ing­ton Examiner.

White House advi­sors expect impeach­ment to pre­vail in the House, accord­ing to the report.

Although a Demo­c­ra­tic House could use its major­ity to vote to impeach Trump, essen­tially charg­ing him with a high crime or mis­de­meanor, his fate would be deter­mined by the Sen­ate, where essen­tially a trial would occur.

House minor­ity leader Nancy Pelosi warned fel­low law­mak­ers against their push for impeach­ment now, say­ing it could hurt the party’s chances of tak­ing over.

I don’t think we should be talk­ing about impeach­ment. I’ve been very clear right from the start,’ Pelosi told reporters last month.

Ms. Pelosi demon­strates a dim ves­tige of cun­ning, but we call all fig­ure out what will hap­pen if the Democ­rats regain the House, the Sen­ate or both.

I thought about ask­ing the rhetor­i­cal ques­tion: which high crime and/​or mis­de­meanor? But then I remem­bered what Don­ald Trump’s true crime is in the eyes of the Orga­nized Left: keep­ing Hillary R. Clin­ton from becom­ing Pres­i­dent of the United States.

Cer­tain quar­ters will never for­give DJT for that and that alone. They will con­tinue to look for rea­sons — rea­son­able or not — to make him pay. Sad.

And dan­ger­ous.

Some entertainment to look forward to; and when I say entertainment, I mean war.

The White House anticipates a Democratic House will vote to impeach President Trump – but that his opponents won’t be able to muster the 67 Senate votes needed to throw him out of office.

Trump advisors in and outside the White House have begun speculating about scenarios months before voters even go to the polls for November elections that will be critical to what comes next for the Trump presidency.

If Democrats do take control of the chamber – which would fit traditional off-year patterns even as their edge in generic polls has narrowed in recent weeks – a far greater level of oversight and scrutiny is a certainty.

Impeachment also could follow, even as House leaders urge caution in speaking about it.

‘If we lose the House, it’s a given that they’ll try to get a vote to impeach,’ an outside Trump advisor told the Washington Examiner.

White House advisors expect impeachment to prevail in the House, according to the report.

Although a Democratic House could use its majority to vote to impeach Trump, essentially charging him with a high crime or misdemeanor, his fate would be determined by the Senate, where essentially a trial would occur.

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi warned fellow lawmakers against their push for impeachment now, saying it could hurt the party’s chances of taking over.

I don’t think we should be talking about impeachment. I’ve been very clear right from the start,’ Pelosi told reporters last month.

Ms. Pelosi demonstrates a dim vestige of cunning, but we call all figure out what will happen if the Democrats regain the House, the Senate or both.

I thought about asking the rhetorical question: which high crime and/or misdemeanor? But then I remembered what Donald Trump’s true crime is in the eyes of the Organized Left: keeping Hillary R. Clinton from becoming President of the United States.

Certain quarters will never forgive DJT for that and that alone. They will continue to look for reasons — reasonable or not — to make him pay. Sad.

And dangerous.
