Let’s be honest, we all knew this was coming. Democrats have been firing flares on this matter for months: they want to get President Trump. They want to impeach him. It’s what drove many new Democrats into power last election cycle. This party still cannot stand that he won the 2016 election. This impeachment business is what fuels the angry far left of the party; Democrats have to obey. Once they retook the House, we knew that investigations into the Trump White House would begin under the guise of accountability and oversight. In truth, any so-called oversight action by House Democrats should be treated as impeachment hearings. They’re already moving the goalposts on the upcoming report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the DOJ’s Russian collusion probe. There’s a good chance that nothing earth-shattering is going to be in it. No solid evidence of Russian collusion; a nothing burger like no other. With this realization, Democrats have to keep the impeachment fires going, so enter Michael Cohen, who has been indicted for lying to Congress mind you. MSNBC’s Chuck Todd said Cohen’s testimony before Congress this week was unofficially the first Trump impeachment hearing (NTK Network):
NBC’s Chuck Todd said that the Michael Cohen hearing before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday was “the first unofficial hearing of the impeachment process” of President Trump.
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Todd how Cohen’s hearing will be received in political circles.
“The fact of the matter is that this is the first unofficial hearing of the impeachment process, whether you want to call it that or not. That’s what history is going to show this [as],” Todd said.
Cohen trashed the president, but House Republicans rightfully slammed him as a pathological liar also ripped him apart. He’s someone without a scintilla of credibility. Still, some House Democrats think this hearing will be enough to keep the impeachment circus going:
Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) said that it was “more likely” that President Trump would be impeached following Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress during an interview with CNN on Thursday.
CNN’s John Berman read Cicilline Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, which outlines what constitutes an impeachable offense and asked Cicilline if Trump’s alleged crimes rose to the level of impeachment.
“Well, I think that there’s no question that we have seen evidence both in what has been made public in the Speical Counsel’s investigation and certainly what Mr. Cohen testified to yesterday, which constitute crimes. I think there’s no question about that,” Cicilline said.
Fix bayonets, folks. It's going to get bloody.
