Many Democrats seem to live in an imaginary world in which they think they can overturn the results of the 2016 election. They tried recounting the votes and convincing members of the Electoral College to vote for Hillary Clinton. Those efforts failed miserably so their only alternative was impeachment. They pinned their hopes on collusion with Russia. When the Mueller investigation said it didn’t happen, they moved to obstruction of justice. Mueller’s often confused testimony certainly didn’t help their cause.
Many are still sticking to obstruction. Some have such a ridiculous definition that almost anybody could be accused of it. One Democrat claimed that that calling the investigation a witch-hunt was obstruction. Even those who are more reasonable have a tough case to prove. First of all, there was no crime. The investigation was allowed to run its course, nearly two years. President Trump waived executive privilege. Even if they convince a majority of the House to impeach, there is no way 2/3 of the Senate will convict.
Some are looking for other ways to impeach him. One man thinks his tweets somehow constitute high crimes and misdemeanors. Others are launching a fishing expedition regarding his business affairs.
It’s time for them to quit trying to overturn 2016 and focus on winning in 2020.
