President Trump’s trip to Asia was a smashing success. Democrats still chose to attack him the moment he returned home. Six fringe members of the party introduced impeachment articles against Trump.
The political stunt gives them credit with their rabidly liberal constituents, without having to piss off their more moderate supporters. They have almost no chance of being able to impeach the president in a Republican-controlled House, and they know it.
“We have taken this action because of great concerns for the country and our Constitution and our national security and our democracy,” Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said at a news conference.
“I think the Democratic base needs to be activated. The Democratic base needs to know there are members of Congress willing to stand up against this president.”
Trump has been in office for less than a year, and Democrats have already brought up impeachment multiple times. They would rather kick Trump out of office than admit that voters are sick of them.
Rep.Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, who supports the latest effort, said that he doesn’t care if the rest of his party is too cautious to stand behind him.
“I see a crime and I have a responsibility to dial 911 immediately. I don’t call and try to reach my consensus with all my neighbors and all my friends and those whose opinion I might seek out,” Gutierrez said.
Democrats must be getting desperate. Their not even pretending that they have a real agenda anymore.
“House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with,” said RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens.
