Just when you thought that 2020 couldn’t get any stranger, here come the Democrats to make you think again.
Amid a global pandemic and the political evisceration of the Obama administration by the Department of Justice, we’re now going to have to deal with impeachment again?
Or, stranger still: Did it never really go away?
House Democrats told the Supreme Court on Monday that they are again in the midst of an “ongoing presidential impeachment investigation” as part of their “weighty constitutional responsibility” – and, the Democrats argued, redacted grand-jury material from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s now-completed Russia probe must be turned over as a result.
Top Democrats have repeatedly suggested since President Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment in February that they might initiate new impeachment proceedings. In their brief with the Supreme Court, which seeks testimony, exhibits and transcripts, the Democrats promised that leaks won’t be a problem, owing to their “special protocols” that will ensure “secrecy.”
It appears as though the Senate’s acquittal was not enough for the left.
“The [House Judiciary] Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial,” the Democrats told the nine justices on Monday. “If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles adopted by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”
It appears as though we’ve now reached the height of “resistance” hysteria, and the era of perpetual impeachment.
