The mask is off: Democrats get right to work to impeach Trump​




https://www.americanthinker.com/blo...et_right_to_work_trying_to_impeach_trump.html
Having taken back the House, Democrats aren't waiting around to get seated. They're getting down to business, and sorry voters, it's not the moderate legislation with Medicare fixes they ran on... Nope, they're out to Get Trump... Mike Allen of Axios quotes an insider who describes a coming " subpoena cannon :"
House Democrats plan to probe every aspect of President Trump’s life and work, from family business dealings to the Space Force to his tax returns to possible "leverage" by Russia, top Democrats tell us.
What they're saying: One senior Democratic source said the new majority, which takes power in January, is preparing a "subpoena cannon," like an arena T-shirt cannon.
Based on our reporting and other public sources, Axios' Zach Basu has assembled a list of at least 85 potential Trump-related subpoena targets for the new majority. ( See the list .) ​
So they're going to go for impeachment right out the gate, looking to expose President Trump's tax records, his firings of this or that official, the creation of the Space Force, Puerto Rico hurricane relief (good luck with that one), White House security clearances, White House email use (amazing hypocrisy on that one), pretty much anything they can throw to the wall and see if it sticks. They've got 85 of such subpoenas in the works.
Guess the moderate schtick they got elected on is kind of over... They haven't even been seated yet and already they're going for the frenzied crazy stuff..... With Democrats ripping their mask off well before they even retake power, with their subpoenas-before-legislation madness, he couldn't be more on target.

Typically, the average moderate voter believed the Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrats when they said they were going to work for the "Good of the Country". They're feral humans who know only how to destroy everything in their path with hopes of winning the absolute power they lust for.
IMHO, Democrats are preparing to make Two Monumental Mistakes, that is making Pelosi Speaker f the House and actively seeking to impeach President Trump.
Trump needs to appoint a very aggressive AG. to go after all of the Democrat criminals and corruption. First on the agenda, declassify FBI FISA warrants, then Uranium One, Benghazi, and especially Russia-Gate, Hillary and the DNC involvement.
It appears as the Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrats are itching for a civil war. What they’re doing is an other attempted Coup d' Etat, nothing more nothing less and it will end very badly for them. There is ABSOLUTELY no constitutional justification to even try this despicable act. This will end very badly for the Democrats. The PEOPLE who try to save America will fight harder than those trying to destroy it. Remember that. By the way you millennials and public school educated “students,” coup is pronounced coo. Just FYI, so you won’t sound like a stupid liberal should you discuss this subject.

I'll be happy if Trump does nothing more than hold the corrupt Obama administration pukes, the Congressional members...both House and Senate...who helped them and, if possible, the multimedia propagandists in bed with the whole lot to account.

Regarding the House Dems...they will be able to be a nuisance...that's about it.

Right. When they had control of the House, Senate, and White House, Trump and Republicans didn't pursue Dems because.... because... (they lied to the rube masses who believed them, even though it was obviously a lie and only idiots would believe it) because there wasn't anything there to nail Democrats on. Now that Democrats won the house two years later, suddenly you expect Trump to be going after the House and the media to hold them to account? What sense does that make? I suppose tomorrow a leprechaun riding a unicorn will make me bacon and eggs for breakfast too.

Some Dems are of a mind to impeach Trump. Others, most notably the Dem most likely to become the Speaker of the House, have other "fish to fry."

The first bill she wants to pass is a package of anti-corruption and voting rights reforms. She has no interest in impeaching Donald Trump, despite some on her left flank eager to do this on day one. Instead, she plans to push ahead with the policy issues she’s advocated for years. Lower health care costs. Bigger paychecks for the middle class. Protections for the environment.

She also wants committee chairs to begin conducting real oversight of the Trump administration, which Republicans have refused to do for the past two years.
(Source)

So, while one can find Dems who want to see among their first actions Trump's impeachment by the House, what matters is what the Speaker is going to allow to happen on the House floor. At the moment, Trump's impeachment on political grounds isn't among the current or most likely successor's priorities.

Dems don't need to do a damned thing other than protect Mueller.

What Marxists like you never seem to understand is that he represents the end of Trump and his crime family.

The only idiot who keeps bringing up impeachment is Trump himself.

Muller is an idiot chasing phantoms and ghosts. I hope they take your advice

It's fun to watch you pretend that as a self-defense mechanism.

Trump's decades of corruption and being owned by the Russian Mob are coming to and end, and it's always a delight to see how that makes his sycophantic worshipers fall apart.

Oh. What I want Trump to do has nothing to do with the Dems...and especially not the Dems who control the House. It has everything to do with Sessions being gone, Rosenstein hitting the road soon and Mueller going home before then.

btw, those Congressional members I spoke of are not limited to Dems.

1. The Dems can't do a damned to protect Mueller. He'll finish his job, write up his report, give it to the AG (or AAG) and go home.

2. Regardless your penchant for tossing out nonsense labels, I'm not a Marxist.

3. Mueller has nothing on Trump or his family. But hey...keep on dreaming (till you wake up).

4. You haven't been listening to the Dems and their multimedia echo chamber lap dogs lately, have you?

they'd better wait until the Mueller report if they're going that route. even then, Senate Republicans won't vote for it no matter what he has done, and the Democrats don't have a 2/3 majority. if they did get it done, they would get Pence and a backlash election that would shut them out of power for probably at least two cycles. i'm afraid that we are stuck with Tweety until 2021 at least.

All who oppose Trump should be punished for their insolence!

Down with the Dear Leaders enemies!

All hail the glorious Trump, eternal leader!

It has nothing to do with Trump.

It has everything to do with corruption and the rule of law.

But then, perhaps corruption and violation of the rule of law are okay with you...when it suits your purpose, eh?

But, of course, they actually can, should Twump try and take action against him. It's not complicated and they've already made public how they would.

So much for their talking point, "walk and chew gum" narrative. Knew that was total, utter B.S.

I think it's terribly premature to talk about impeachment at this time, even though the Dem base demands it.

But I do think it is very much time to hold the proper transparent hearings (televised), that the GOP did not do. And then compare notes with Mueller and the witnesses, including with any previous testimony of the witnesses and others.

In fact, in the companion piece video to the original Axios article (neither of which were linked in the OP), it seems my thoughts in the second paragraph are very much the Dem's plan:

Exactly.

But this is dependent upon their hearings and what Mueller reports. Regardless, even if there's nothing impeachable, I think two years of Dem hearings will likely bring negatives to light that will sway the Indies enough to not flip 2020 to Trump.

i suppose that we'll see. the dems could also try the novel strategy of having a strategy, a message, a really good pro-worker and properly prioritized platform, and an appealing candidate. madness, i know.

To the bolded:

Well, yes & no. In legal terms, I believe all they can really do is investigate and refer for prosecution. Then it's Whitaker's ball.

However these public investigations can indeed sway political opinion, especially with Indies. But that's no real help, until 2020.

Or, Americans will be sick to death of Dem obstruction and blood lust in lieu of getting to work for the people who elected them, and taking their needs to heart, that they will gladly vote for Trump.

If he's fired, they can have him testify, publicly, to various house committees as to what his investigation found

Whittaker's not going to be around long enough to be a worry.

Yes. But as I stated, in legal terms Mueller and the Dems can do little. FBI/DOJ makes those decisions (prosecution). And we don't know who will be running the show, besides that it will be a Trump appointee.
