House Democrats continue to ensure Americans that they will, in fact, impeach President Trump. This comes in spite of no supporting evidence and previous, unsuccessful votes to move forward with impeachment.
At this time, President Trump’s July phone call with the leader of Ukraine is being used as the basis for the impeachment inquiry; Democrats continue to maintain that Trump engaged in a quid-pro-quo with the leader of Ukraine, despite denials from both parties.
On Sunday, House Democrat Maxine Waters sat down for an interview with MSNBC. Breitbart News reports Waters’ claims that Democrats will “have information” against Trump in a “good period of time.” The congresswoman also had some choice words for the Senate which is currently controlled by Republicans.
In the wake of the impeachment inquiry, House Democrats have consistently struggled to face the reality that even if they’re able to gather enough votes in their own chambers, impeachment will die in the very red Senate.
A Full Review of Waters’ Remarks on Impeachment
During Waters’ time on-air, she made statements which suggest that the moves to impeach this president are coming along well. Facts and evidence clearly state otherwise, but that didn’t derail Waters from pushing the narrative that she wants the public to believe.
After professing that House Democrats will “have information that will end up going to the Judiciary Committee in a good period of time,” Waters also condemned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In Waters’ own words:
“We are moving as well as we possibly can. I don’t care what Mitch McConnell is trying to do. It is going to catch up with him. […] The American people want to have the Senate do what the Constitution says they must do and hold a trial. They are acting as the jury, should be acting as the jury. We’ll have information to put before them and they better not try to sweep it under the rug.”
In reading between the lines here, it’s very clear that “not trying to sweep it under the rug” is Waters’ way of saying that she wants Senate Republicans to vote in favor of impeachment. That’s simply not going to happen; House Democrats know this, which is one of many reasons why they continue to make various public statements about the Senate’s role in the impeachment inquiry.
Same Story, Same Outcome
The Democrat Party has been talking about impeachment since Trump epically defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. Democrats couldn’t impeach him then and they can’t impeach him now. Waters mentioned “information,” this past weekend, but how often have Americans heard this in one form or another?
Throughout the first half of the president’s term in office, Democrats supposedly had “information” regarding the Mueller probe; that, of course, turned out to be a huge nothingburger.
In the end, the House will continue to run its various impeachment-centered investigations. These investigations will inevitably go nowhere and then Democrats will point the finger at President Trump and Republicans yet again. This tune has been played so many times and at this point, it couldn’t be more predictable.
The best course of action for Maxine Waters and other House Democrats would be to drop this treasonous impeachment coup and instead focus on working for the folks who elected them into office.
