Jennifer Rubin: How we will know if impeachment is the right thing to do?
The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | May 7, 2018 | Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post

Posted on 05/18/2018 12:07:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Democratic leaders are right to caution their members and candidates against talking up impeachment. There is the obvious political consideration that impeachment is disfavored, at least now, by many voters, especially those in red states where Democrats need to hang on to precious Senate seats. But there is something more important, both for the party fighting against the erosion of democratic norms and for the country: We cannot normalize impeachment.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, writes that “it is clear that if President (Donald) Trump participated in a conspiracy to defraud the United States during the campaign by colluding with the Russians, there is a historical basis for the Senate to remove him from office. It is even more clear that if he committed the offense of obstruction of justice while in office, that would provide a legal basis for removal.” Saying there is a basis for impeachment does not, however, mean it is the wise course of action....

How will you know?

That is, if you think you can.

I just wish they’d get it over with and try...

And in order to plausibly try, they have to get elected first.

Which won’t happen.

But I wish they’d run on it nevertheless.

The left is always in the wrong, no matter what. You can always count on that.

Especially since Shiffy pulled that opinion out of his piehole.

“Jennifer Rubin: How we will know if impeachment is the right thing to do?”

As with everything else, Big Media will tell you.

She’s gonna be one of the first ones up on a DC cherry tree, so she won’t get to find out how the Deplorables snuff out this seditious coup against a duly-elected President.

Jennifer Rubin quoting Adam Schiff at length. Oh, brother. It's telling that she considers the Dem vote to remove from office a given, and that the only dissenting votes might be Republican. So much for any objectivity. The thing is a partisan bum's-rush and everyone knows it.

Keep running your mouth, you seditious piece of Mitt.

Hope you like cherries...

What does Jen Rubin care about whether something is the right thing to do? Do they still let her in the building and hand her a paycheck Friday?

If you’re a left wing nutcase then impeachment is right. So ask yourself if you are a left wing nutcase.

Jenny takes a statement from idiot Schiff and tries to make it sound reasonable.

It’s like reading Dr. Seuss.
Listen to the Who

With my thoughts that I have about you.

Jibberish.

While reading this is just hit me that Trump is reducing all of these student government types to crying sobbing children. I predict that after 6 years (or sooner) the swamp will be drained!
