Democrats Consumed With Trump Hatred Experiencing Abject Disappointment

If the House approves articles of impeachment against President Trump, there would be a trial in the Senate.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made it clear that discussions with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have not yet begun noting, “If the House acts, I think the place to start would be to take a look at what the agreement was 20 years ago in the Clinton impeachment trial as a starting place and then discuss how we may be able to agree to handle the process.  How long it goes on really depends on how long the Senate wants to spend on it.”

On Monday, McConnell told reporters in Kentucky, “I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate.”

Republican senators including McConnell have criticized the House process arguing the President has not been allowed to defend himself in the inquiry.  Consideration is being given to dismissing the inquiry, a move that would require a simple majority of 51 votes.

Every moment of every waking day, Democrats have been searching for any pretext to remove this president.

As I noted in a previous post Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has had impeachment papers on his desk for three long years.  No one believes that the fix hasn’t been in since Trump took the Oath of Office.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) conducted focus groups in key battleground states to find a more compelling word to replace the Latin term “quid pro quo”.  The groups found “bribery” to be most damning.

Nothing underscores the fact that impeachment is a political process, not a legal remedy, intended to turn public opinion against the President.

CNN’s Legal Analyst, Jim Baker, pining for a real life Orwellian “1984” scenario tweeted:
Democrats and the legion of Trump haters are demoralized over impeachment hearings being tuned out by Americans.

“One of the most important aspects of the televised hearings is how many people watch them,” said Darrell West, Director of Governance Studies for the Brookings Institution. “During Watergate, millions watched and learned new things about President Nixon, which ultimately turned them away from him. For Democrats to have any hope of altering public opinion, they need robust viewership levels.”

Has the manufactured hatred of Trump hit a ceiling?  Oh, I think so.  San Fran Nan and her henchmen met privately about the prospects of a dramatic shift in opinion according to CNN.

“How impeachment plays in key districts has been an issue that Democrats have discussed repeatedly behind closed doors. At a meeting in late October, DCCC officials discussed focus group research that showed voters wanted the inquiry to be a fact-finding mission—not a foregone conclusion, according to a source in the room.”
