What, precisely, do Democrats want to impeach Trump for?

by Byron York

January 06, 2019 05:59 PM

 
Newly sworn-in Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib electrified progressives with her passionate declaration that she and her colleagues will "impeach the bleep" -- the "bleep," of course, being President Trump.

Democratic leaders were embarrassed that a high-profile freshman would speak so frankly in public. But hours before Tlaib spoke, on the first day of Democratic control of the House, another Democrat, Rep. Brad Sherman, filed a resolution of impeachment. Sherman's resolution was later co-sponsored by another colleague, Democratic Rep. Al Green.

The efforts by Sherman and Green, who filed his own articles in 2017, and another House Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen, who also introduced articles in Trump's first months in office, are nothing new. Nor are those efforts a lonely quest. In an early 2018 procedural vote, 66 Democrats voted in favor of moving an impeachment measure forward.

But on what grounds, specifically, do the pro-impeachment Democrats intend to remove the president? The new Sherman/Green resolution, and Green's and Cohen's resolutions from last year, are not exactly a comprehensive recounting of Trump's alleged offenses. Sherman's is based entirely on the president's firing of FBI Director James Comey and the Comey memos, while Green's articles seek to remove Trump for "sowing discord among the people of the United States" with his comments on Charlottesville, transgender troops, and Muslim immigration. (In an earlier version, Green also sought to impeach Trump for statements about Rep. Frederica Wilson and NFL players who do not stand for the national anthem.) Cohen's articles rehashed much of Sherman's obstruction allegation while adding a charge that Trump violated the Constitution's emoluments clause, plus articles seeking to remove Trump for tweeting about federal judges and calling some press organizations "fake news."

Adam Schitt said this morning they are going for Impeachment because Donny farts in the bathtub and laughs at the bubbles popping.

Schitt has a team ready to collect and instant freeze those those Trump bubble farts. At the Impeachment hearings he will bring them out and throw them on a skillet and watch them dance around on the pan.

They have Trumps farts now.

Because everything now is a political weapon to the Dems.

Of course that's a one-way street. Don't you dare think of using something against the Holy and Righteous Ones.

Mr. York wonders:
"What, precisely, do Democrats want to impeach Trump for?"

Bryon, you're a dummy.

1. Because he won.
2. Because he's there.

Without reading the article.

I'd say ANYTHING that they are able.

The Dems seek to reverse the results of a free and fair election.    That's what Strock and Page were talking about over two years ago,  as the "insurance policy" if Trump were to win.   The People and the Constitution simply cannot be trusted, and certainly not respected.   

The Dems are, in a word, fascists.

Trump's unforgivable crime is that he crossed the aisle.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Millions of liberals/Dems were already on the edge before Trump got elected. His beating Hillary pushed them over. A large  number of them really believe that if Trump were deposed, there is a path for Hillary to be president.
Of course, many were looking for revenge for Slick Willy getting impeached, but a lot of it is due to many  already deranged Dems needing only a slight push to get them rooting for impeachment.
