The democratic party is playing a dangerous game with President Donald Trump in 2019, and the implications of their actions seem to be an afterthought for many.
The radical side of the party is taking over, undeniably. Lawmakers such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have brought a youthful invigoration to the party, but at the cost of far-left, ultra progressive ideologies that won’t appeal to undecided voters in the least.
These are the radical leftist leaders who are pushing hard for the impeachment of Donald Trump, citing the Mueller report on Russian election interference as their ace in the hole.
But the upper brass of the democratic party has been obstinate in their opposition to the idea…at least until now, it seems.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, said in an interview Sunday that he believes impeachment proceedings ultimately will be launched against Trump at some point in the future. He suggested Democrats are already laying the groundwork in Congress.
“I think we’ve already begun,” Clyburn said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’ve got all of these committees doing their work, we’re having hearings.”
“We do believe that if we sufficiently, effectively educate the public, then we will have done our jobs, and we can move on an impeachment vote and it will stand, and maybe it will be what needs to be done to incent the Senate to act.”
While the headlines surrounding the statement tend to be a bit dramatic, the radical left will likely not be appeased by Clyburn’s semantic lip service.
Should the democrats move forward with impeachment, the motion is likely to fail in the republican-controlled Senate, setting President Donald Trump up for a landslide of support ahead of the 2020 election.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
