A Democratic congressman has proposed one article of impeachment that he hopes will begin the process of removing President Donald Trump from office.
“Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government,” read the resolution proposed by Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif.
Sherman said he understood that Trump’s removal would not give the Democrats the White House.
“The purpose of this article is not to deprive the Republicans of their election victory,” said Sherman, noting that if Trump were removed, Vice President Mike Pence would take office. “In fact, from a purely partisan standpoint, it would install someone who would competently pursue a truly regressive progressive.”
However, he said, the nation is being poorly led.
“Every day that goes by is a day of Alice in Wonderland administration,” he said.
The proposal drew a swift rebuke from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc.
“Frustrated opponents of the president are grasping at straws and factitious rumors to advance their own political agenda rather than the interests of the country,” Sensenbrenner said.
“There is no proof of wrongdoing on the part of the president, which means discussions of impeachment are not only premature, but imprudent and counterproductive,” he said.
I am in a super crappy mood tonight, so I am not at all impressed with this guy’s peacocking, either. I can’t believe I’ve used that term in two posts now, but here we are!
And that’s exactly what it is. I’m sorry, but if you feel the need to tell us this isn’t about the fact that your candidate didn’t win, then guess what it’s about.
There is nothing at all that has been done that warrants impeachment. Impeachment is also not removal from office. That’s a whole other political dance. As someone in politics, you should know that.
So go ahead. Waste more tax dollars and strut around for those votes you want to get in the next election, because this isn’t going to go anywhere and you know it. So does everyone else.
