Impeachment was never meant to be a partisan thing. This scared duty of the Congress was meant only to be a solution to the ultimate problem of a President-turned-dictator.
Instead, what we are dealing with today is a hotly divided nation whose anger has manifested itself down party lines, starkly illustrating the bizarre divide between Americans.
The latest indication of this can be well illustrated by the statements being issued by those on both sides of the aisle.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., blasted House Democrats on Friday for delaying impeachment proceedings.
The committee’s chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., abruptly wrapped up an all-day marathon hearing on the adoption of two articles of impeachment against President Trump by delaying planned votes on the matter until Friday morning. Nadler said that he wanted “members on both sides of the aisle to think about what has happened over these last two days, and to search their consciences before we cast their final votes.”
The decision sparked outrage among Republicans.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Collins said that Democrats wanted to prolong the voting process.
“They got tired. And they said Chairman Nadler made a calculation that they wanted to make sure that they could get it to another morning,” he explained.
“They wanted to drag this out a little bit further because they have nothing that they have on this president. We proved all day yesterday that the facts are just wrong. They are on the wrong side of history,” he stated.
Collins is responding, undoubtedly, to the constant and pervasive attacks that Republicans have suffered in the mainstream media over the course of the last few years.
