During former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in the ’90s, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned, “We’ve lowered the bar on impeachment so much … it will be used as a routine tool to fight political battles.”
His colleague Nancy Pelosi said, “It’s about a punishment searching for a crime that doesn’t exist.”
Jerry Nadler (D-NY) told us, “An impeachment of a president is an undoing of a national election.”
Now that Trump occupies the Oval Office they’ve thrown all that out the window and are leading the impeachment charade stemming from a partisan CIA operative who filed a whistleblower complaint over the president’s July phone call with the presi- dent of Ukraine. And now we’ve learned the whistleblower filed the complaint after colluding with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s office.
No foul play, huh?
Schiff is a well-known Trump foe and architect of the debunked Russian collusion hoax. His lying this week about his secretive contacts with the partisan whistleblower earned 4 Pinocchios from the lefty Washington Post.
But who’s surprised given the number of political operatives we’ve seen in the Department of Justice and U.S. intelligence agencies who’ve targeted the president from the get-go: trying at first to stop him from getting elected and, when that failed, deploying every dirty trick in the book to derail the current administration and remove him from office.
The yearslong effort amounts to an assault on our Democracy. Citizens are supposed to choose their representatives in free elections, not deep state spooks with unchecked power and an ax to grind.
First we saw the illicit spying and dubious counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign, orchestrated by former FBI director James Comey and his lieutenants Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and other snakes within the DOJ who were central players in Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI’s code name for the operation targeting Hillary Clinton’s political opponents.
When that political hit job flopped, they tried to implement the “insurance policy” outlined in a text that disgraced Peter Strzok sent his lover alluding to the Russian collusion hoax — a propaganda campaign disseminated by Democrats and their mouthpieces in the #FakeNewsMedia.
What’s been torched is the left’s credibility — and that of the media — especially after the special counsel found no evidence of conspiracy following a costly, 22-month investigation.
So now instead of respecting our Democracy and letting the electorate decide Trump’s fate at the ballot box in 13 short months, Democrats and their co-conspirators in the intelligence community are trying to nullify the votes of 63 million Americans who elected Trump in 2016.
A disgrace no fair minded American should tolerate.
It’s time to drain the swamp once and for all.
