We have Democrats demanding impeachment over a call President Trump had with the president of the Ukraine:
Adam Schiff, the head of the House Intelligence Committee, said that he and his colleagues would be working on their Ukraine probe through the two-week congressional recess, which begins this weekend. “The fast action—and discussions about resorting to a little-known congressional power to detain, arrest or fine recalcitrant witnesses—suggests the House could vote on articles of impeachment as soon as late October,”
“Today, I’m announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry,” Pelosi told reporters on Tuesday. “The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law.”
Thursday and Friday mornings I had the “free” breakfast offered by the motel I was staying in. The television on both days was on CNN where talking heads talked about how terrible the crimes President Trump had committed.
And this afternoon commenter John Schussler said,
we have the leader of the party, Trump, well on his way to impeachment for trying to ensure his political future and that of his party by extorting a foreign power.
This evening I read the transcript of the call. I cannot find anything even hinting at the “extorting a foreign power” and that can be construed as a crime.
We even have Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky denying such claims:
When asked by reporters about the call on Wednesday in a joint press conference with Mr. Trump, Zelensky said that “nobody pushed me.”
I’m inclined to agree with Chet:
I did not expect a crisis until the election, but it now clear to me that the crisis has arrived. The left is now attempting to overthrow our government using any pretense.
I suspect the frenzy demonstrated by democrats since President Trump’s election in 2016 will make the history books. It will be studied by psychologists and sociologists for decades as as an example of one of the greatest mass delusions of all time.
