The left has continually sought to push the narrative of a Donald Trump impeachment, even starting days before the election of November 8th.
It seems that since that fateful moment, or from 12 hours later when Hillary Clinton dejectedly and finally conceded, there has been a new call to impeach the President-elect and then President every single week. Democrats have been furiously coming up with ways in which Donald Trump has violated the office of the President, and, when that has failed, they have consistently fallen back onto their childish and thoroughly debunked Russian conspiracy.
Now, however, some are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. There will be no Trump impeachment, and the left is starting to realize it. Surprisingly, one of the few to openly admit this is former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.
“’I see no sign that there’s any likelihood that he’ll be impeached,’ Podesta, who recently joined the Washington Post as a columnist, told the publication’s Karen Tumulty. Issuing an indirect testament to the loyalty of the GOP, Podesta added:
“‘The Republican leadership has decided we’re in the boat with him, and the boat’s gonna sink, and we’re gonna sink with it. But we can’t really throw him out of the boat.’
“‘So they’ve decided to, as I’ve said before, velcro their fate to him. I think they must be waking up in a sweat at night thinking about what the prospects of that are, but I think there’s no chance that the House would mount the kind of serious investigation that would lead to impeachment.'”
This comes on the tails of John Oliver’s own admission that impeachment would also be an impossibility given the current political makeup of our government.
We get it, democrats: You can’t pull it off, but your’e going to keep talking about it until we grow so tired of it that we impeach Trump ourselves just to shut you up.
