Phrases for slipshod impeachment echo through congress after weeks of impeachment inquiry. Then get repeated with stunning frequency
Democrats bandied about catch phrases in weeks of impeachment inquiry. Some are just cute and others even stupid. Here are a few of the classic gems or their paraphrases:
“We must save our democracy.”
“We must impeach the president to protect the 2020 election.”
“It’s about interference in our elections”
“We are defending the Constitution.”
“No one is above the law.” (what law?)
“This is not a rush to judgment, it is a rush to justice.”
“We must protect our national security and preserve our democracy.”
(a little late on that one)
We must impeach him for what he might do. We cannot take that chance.
But the cakemaker of them all is this one. First, adorn it with sober, somber, solemn, prayerful mood music. Then, self-righteously, they claim:
“None of us came here to impeach the president.”
“None of us came to Congress just to impeach this president.”
Wrong. Yes they did.
They all came there to impeach the president and that is what they are doing. Whatever reasons they thought or said they came to Congress for are in the past. Memo to Dems:
You are there now to impeach the president. So while you can claim that wasn’t your original intent, (even if it was true) you were hijacked once there into that agenda.
In fact, it is now your only objective. Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler have determined the most important priority for this congress and before next election is to impeach the president.
So those pitiful words “I didn’t come here to impeach the president” ring so hollow after we’ve all seen the impeachment road show. Rides available daily.
Even one congressman, Hank Johnson, said representatives should be willing to impeach the president even if it means losing their elections. Sacrifice themselves. He said he would gladly impeach the president if it cost him his seat, and so should everyone else.
Impeachment fever, once they have it they can never turn back.
(*Prof. Jonathan Turley referred to it as slipshod impeachment in his testimony.)
