Republicans are pretty confident Democrats’ failed impeachment attempt is going to lead to big things in November’s elections.
So much so, in fact, that conservative leader Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is already touting Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Pelosi’s replacement for speaker of the House, The Hill reports.
The red wave is coming
Everyone in America was warned several times over that if Democrats won either the House or the Senate in 2018, blatant abuse of power was going to take place.
That prediction came true about two minutes after Dems were sworn into their leadership roles in early 2019 and virtually every committee in the House launched an investigation into some aspect of President Trump’s life.
Dems looked at every avenue possible to go after Trump, including his time as a businessman before ever becoming president. They have used their committees as a way to violate his privacy, trying to secure his business records to find something — anything — to impeach him.
This has played well with the extreme left, but the average American has simply had enough of this nonsense and wants to move on.
Now that Democrats are threatening to continue this circus if Trump is acquitted, many pundits believe the Democratic Party is in for a rude awakening come Election Day.
New blood in the House
If a red wave hits the House in 2020, Republicans take over all leadership roles as the majority. Jordan, for his part, believes that in this situation, McCarthy will be installed as the new House Speaker.
Jordan, an influential member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told The Hill on Thursday: “I think everyone understands that if we take [the House] back, Kevin is going to be the Speaker. The president’s been clear about that.”
Jordan also said that he has his eyes on taking over the leadership of the House Judiciary Committee, a role currently held by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
Republicans do have a shot at taking back the House in November, but they’ll need to win about 20 seats to do so. Still, many have speculated that several red-state Democrats are in danger of losing their seats due to their conduct during the House impeachment inquiry.
As Democrat leadership desperately holds on to their witch hunt against President Trump, many Americans are becoming disillusioned with the party, a trend that GOP strategists are hoping to capitalize upon. Only time will tell if their tactics prove successful.
