House Judiciary Committee Member Backtracks on Likelihood of Impeaching Trump

At a point in the not-so-distant political past, the Democrats were absolutely certain that they would garner the support of the American people in their effort to impeach Donald Trump.

This sentiment arose despite the conclusion of the 22 month long, $25 million Mueller report debacle in which the Special Counsel did not recommend any charges for President Trump.  This was some decision to make as well, with the scope of the investigation being as broad as it was.

Now, with the UkraineGate scandal, the Democrats are again attempting to corral We The People into their corner…but perhaps they should be worrying about keeping all of their ducks in a row first.

On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said the House’s impeachment of President Donald Trump was not a “foregone conclusion.”

Lofgren said, “I think the evidence that is being presented to us by the Intelligence Committee really focuses on the Ukraine matter, so as well as the obstruction. If we do articles— and that’s not a foregone conclusion— that would be the central thrust, I would assume.”

She continued, “Here is the question, it is in the Constitution treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, that is the cause for impeachment. And there is meaning to all of those terms. And that is what our hearing this week will be about. What does the constitution mean when it says that? I’ve got a report from the Nixon impeachment that goes into the history on that. It is on my website if anyone wants to read it. And the question is, should that misconduct result in impeachment?”

This is just the latest bit of backtracking from the Democrats, as the impeachment fiasco grows ever less popular among Americans looking for some normalcy in DC.
