“SO WHAT?” They think they’ve got their hooks into Donald Trump – for conspiring with the Russians to defeat Queen Hillary, – and maybe even financial dealings which would violate the Emolument Clause or even the Bribery Clause in Article II. At a minimum, they believe Russian cyber attacks hurt Hillary and aided Trump….
“SO WHAT?” We need to call their bluff, – ask them what’s next?
Let’s say they can somehow PROVE the Russians hacked the DNC and dumped embarrassing evidence on WikiLeaks…..which sabotaged Hillary in the final months of the campaign….
Do they really think an impeachment would remove Trump and that Hillary would then waltz in and “replace” him…?
Have they forgotten about Vice President Mike Pence?
AND,…would they feel compelled to retaliate against the Russians?
Would Congress use it’s powers under Article I, § 8, para 11 – to declare war on Russia?
What is taking place is a 21st Century witch-hunt by the most juvenile political party since the 1861 Democrats, – who started the Civil War – fearing that Lincoln would summarily free their slaves.
With the election of Lincoln on November 6th 1860, – when Lincoln defeated three separate Democrat Party candidates (Breckenridge, Douglas, & Bell) the Southern Democrats essentially whipped themselves into a frenzy of unreasonable fear…..
Soon shots were being fired by cadets at the Citadel at a union supply ship Star of the West in Charleston Harbor.
By the time our Civil War ended over four long years later, somewhere between 650,000 and 850,000 Americans had been killed, – and nearly as many maimed. The South lay in economic ruins for decades and only started to recover in the 1960s and 1970s.
So we at RRB just gotta ask: Is this Democrat hysteria worth it?
And before you start another Civil War,…better find a more worthy witness than Clapper!
