Kevin McCarthy “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s not-trustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen.”
That was Kevin McCarthy describing how they effectively sullied Hillary Clinton’s image with those bogus Benghazi hearings hurting her with voters. Compared to what’s coming up for Donald Trump on the real side will make those bogus Benghazi hearings look like a Hillary Clinton coronation. .
There are two historical references the Democrats are gradually becoming less spooked by in going forward with impeachment hearings. They are wrongly comparing a true case of apples and oranges. Comparing a sexual encounter as grounds for impeachment versus the cornucopia of corruption that’s bound to be revealed on this current White House occupant between now and 2020 is going to be the ultimate gift that keeps on giving to the Democrats. We’re only talking about a guy who Senator Elizabeth Warren declared, “If Donald Trump were not President he would be in handcuffs and indicted.”
The second boogeyman is if impeachment proceedings commence, it will insure Trump’s re-election. This is just as off the mark as predicting Trump’s going to win again because Democrats will be labeled “socialist.”
David Jolly, disaffected former Florida Congressman and now a devout “never Trumper,” expressed his extreme disappointment with Nancy Pelosi for not having already started Impeachment procedures. Jolly seems to be missing the wisdom of the strategy. Nancy is going about this just right. As for Donald Trump, he’s playing right into the Democrats hands. By the time the court rulings come down eliminating all the stonewalling and delays they are going to be right on schedule to roll out those blockbuster “Perry Mason Moments” hearings right into the 2020 election year.
It’s all about educating the public. Bringing them along scandal by scandal, illegality by illegality, abuse of power by, you get it. Many of his base have been feeding scrumptiously on Trump TV. There are going to be a lot more people like the lady at Justin Amash’s town-hall meeting who are going to be hearing the inconvenient truth about their Dear Leader– Donald Trump for the first time. As the one lady admitted at Justin Amash’s town hall meeting, Cathy Garnaat, a Republican, who NBC reported was “surprised to hear there was anything negative in the Mueller report at all about President Trump.”
Tax returns, McGahn testimony, possible money laundering, interpreters notes of conversations with Putin, he doesn’t want the American people to know will be on a 24 hour news cycle. This is going to be must-see TV. There will be a lot more Cathy Garnetts being baptized with Trump truths, and not a moment to soon.
The timing allows the Democrats to have their October surprise start running earlier in the year right up to election day and never have to launch the actual formal impeachment proceedings. But if that’s not enough of a load for this electoral fluke to overcome there’s an economic downturn looming large.
Someone asked, “are the chickens coming home to roost? The answer is no, the whole barnyard is on the way.
