Democrats made their move on impeachment thinking the riot at the Capitol provided the momentum to exile Donald Trump from politics once and for all.
But they got some bad news.
And now you won’t believe which top Democrat waved the white flag of defeat on impeachment.
The 2016 Democrat ticket of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are both now publicly admitting the Democrats’ efforts to convict Donald Trump on the sham article of impeachment are now doomed to failure.
In the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol, Democrats and Never Trump RINOs felt a groundswell building to blame someone for the chaos and death and believed they could pin the fault for the violence on President Trump.
Democrats rushed a snap impeachment to the floor of the House of Representatives one week after the riot.
RINO traitors like Liz Cheney swooped in to add their support as the establishment in both parties wanted Trump’s presidency expunged.
But as time went on and passions subsided, Republican senators studied the case and realized the impeachment was unconstitutional due to Trump being out of office and that Trump’s own words at the rally preceding the riot—where Trump urged peaceful and patriotic protests—undercut any claims of incitement.
The Democrats’ defeat became clear when 44 Republican senators joined Rand Paul in voting to dismiss the article of impeachment on the grounds the Constitution only provides for the impeachment and removal of a sitting president.
Hillary Clinton fumed about this outcome.
“Three weeks ago, Donald Trump incited a violent mob to attack Congress and stop the peaceful transition of power,” Clinton continued, “Five people died, including a Capitol policeman.”
“Yesterday, all but five GOP senators voted for Trump to get away with it,” Clinton concluded.
Liberals like Clinton wave off concerns about the constitutional concerns about setting a precedent where Congress convicts a private citizen on articles of impeachment after they leave office.
That’s because Clinton and her allies believe in a living Constitution where the words change meaning to achieve whatever outcome they hope to achieve.
Clinton’s failed running mate and impeachment trial juror Virginia Senator Tim Kaine took a practical approach and conceded 45 Republicans voting to dismiss the article of impeachment meant Democrats were far short of the 67 votes necessary to convict Donald Trump and should make the trial as short as possible and move on to other matters.
“To do a trial knowing you’ll get 55 votes at the max seems to me to be not the right prioritization of our time. Obviously, we do a trial. Maybe we can do it fast, but my top priority is COVID relief and getting the Biden cabinet approved,” Kaine stated.
Impeaching Donald Trump was always nothing more than an attempt at partisan retribution and smearing Trump’s voters as supporters of domestic terrorism.
It’s now dawning on Democrats that enough Republicans are on to the game the left was playing.
