The Democrats and Faux-Impeachment

If they have their way, the democrats, I mean the professional political class, will never have to bring this Trump impeachment nonsense to a vote, because it’s not now and never was about impeachment.

Oh sure, if they could impeach and somehow remove Trump from office, that would be the cherry on top of the sundae, but the dems, at least the ones in senior leadership, the ones in the know and who likely concocted this whole scheme, are only doing this really for the issue. They believe it’s a win-win. Actually it’s a win-win-win.

First they get to clog up the system, so that no more of Trump’s agenda can be advanced – you know, because democrats take impeachment soooooo seriously, even faux-impeachment. Second, from a democrat point-of-view, they get a made for TV election year issue to run on. And third, no democrat has to be accountable, for an “official” vote was never cast in House, as is the rule.

It’s why those in the Trump administration who received notification letters to appear before the House committee can just refuse to do so without consequence.

Texas Republican Slams Holder

from the UK Daily Mail:

In a stunning clash of two branches of the U.S. federal government, a Texas congressman told Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday that he should be ‘in jail’ instead of answering questions in a Capitol Hill hearing.

Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold refused to ask Holder – the hearing’s sole witness – any questions, instead slamming him for defying congressional document subpoenas and ignoring a criminal contempt citation the House of Representatives lodged against him nearly two years ago.

‘I’m committed to maintaining the constitutional balance of power and the authority that this legislative branch has,’ Farenthold said, ‘and I just don’t think it’s appropriate that Mr. Holder be here.’

‘If an American citizen had not complied with one of the Justice Department’s subpoenas, they would be in jail and not sitting here in front of me testifying.’ read more
