What time is it? It’s time to whip up some impeachment fever again.
Is It Too Late to Impeach Trump Again? – New York Times
Washington Watchdog Group Calls for Trump to be Impeached – Business Insider
Democratic lawmakers call for Trump to be impeached for pressuring Georgia’s secretary of state to ‘find’ enough votes to overturn the election – Business Insider
Don’t get the idea that this is about Georgia. MSNBC had previously floated an impeachment proposal over pardons, Esquire proposed impeachment over election challenges, Pelosi seemed to be flirting with impeachment as a strategy for blocking the Supreme Court nomination.
Notably, the previous two examples postdated the election raising the obvious question, if Democrats believe that President Trump lost, why impeach him?
Impeachment proceedings for an elected official who doesn’t have very long in office would seem to be a silly proposition even by the standards of the impeachment souvenir pen gang. There would be absolutely no point to it. No point unless they believe that there is some chance of President Trump remaining in office or making a successful political comeback. Despite their ‘public face’, they don’t really believe it’s over. If they did, we wouldn’t be hearing about impeachment.
You don’t impeach defeated political figures. It’s why the calls to lock up Hillary never went anywhere. You go after politicians who still pose a threat.
