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.
