It has been known for the last few years that Democrats lawmakers do not like President Trump at all. Understandably, a president from the opposing party would not be at the top of their favorites list. However, you would think that anyone who proved they were without a doubt for this nation and its progress and survival would, at the very least, earn some measure of respect from them.
Instead, Donald Trump’s success has only seemed to alienate them all the more. House Democrats, in particular, are not a fan of him. According to them, he has done nothing right, ever, even before his time in the White House. And it absolutely outrages them that so many others so well like him, even long-time Democrat Party members.
The impeachment inquiry that has kept the nation on its toes for the past few months is definitive proof of this. The fact of the matter is: they want Trump gone and they don’t care how it happens.
And now that House Democrats have found something they think is actually impeachable and will stick, they won’t let it go. But even more than that, they don’t trust anyone but themselves to make sure their plan works, not even the American public.
In an interview with CNN on Thursday, Democratic Representative Veronica Escobar said that letting the public know about the Ukraine situation and then letting them decide on the outcome themselves would be a bad idea. According to her, the decision of whether or not to allow Trump to remain in office should not be left to the people but to Congress alone.
She said, “If you have a corrupt executive, who is willing to maintain power by corrupting our election, there is an urgency there.”
And she added, “We have already seen that the president has done everything possible to prevent us from getting access to all of the documents, all of the witnesses that we need to. If we wait for the courts, if we wait for an election to settle this, then we will have waited too long.”
She continued, “I am worried in general about 2020. I believe that we are on a precipice, a very dangerous precipice, as a country in so many ways.”
In other words, she doesn’t think the Democrats will get their way or “justice,” as they call it if the American people are allowed to decide Trump’s fate.
And she isn’t the first House Dem to suggest this idea that this impeachment must be carried out post-haste.
In fact, she may simply be running on the coattails of impeachment leader and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff. On Tuesday, he was asked by CNN why the impeachment proceedings must be kept to such a fast pace. His answer was that there was “grave risk to the country with waiting.” Sound familiar?
And he added that reviewing or looking at “every last fact” was pointless and a waste of time.
“There is grave risk to the country with waiting until we have every last fact, when we already know enough about the president’s misconduct to make a responsible judgment about whether we think that’s compatible with the office of the president.”
No, of course, waiting for the truth and cold-hard facts is entirely redundant. After all, Dems have known since January 2017 that Trump was guilty. Of what? Well, that was to be determined.
But at least they have finally admitted that they care nothing for the law or justice. This only proves what we have known all along. Truth, justice, facts, these are mere words they have hidden behind. It’s never been about those things. And it certainly hasn’t been about prevailing the Founding Fathers’ belief system.
Nothing and I mean nothing, is more important to them than the power they feel that Trump stole from them. And if it hasn’t been clear before, it should be now; they will continue this race for impeachment at breakneck speed because they think it’s the only way they can win. If they can just keep up the ruse up a little while longer and keep the public out of it, then just maybe they will win.
Gone are the days when the people choose our government.
But as these statements by Schiff and Escobar prove, they already know who holds the winning card. That is why they are so scared of him.
