While some Democrats and media figures have suggested that the current impeachment effort against President Donald Trump is a solemn affair entered into only after serious consideration, Trump’s supporters know that most Democrats and the media have been dead set on impeaching him since before he was even sworn into office.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), an ally of the president who is pushing back against Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) impeachment charade in the House Intelligence Committee, just alluded to that patently obvious fact during an interview Sunday on CBS’ Face the Nation, Breitbart reported.
Speaking the truth
Jordan and host Margaret Brennan spoke about the latest developments in the impeachment inquiry just after an interview Brennan had conducted with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was aired. It was toward the end of the discussion that Jordan asserted what few can honestly deny: Democrats have intended to impeach President Trump for quite some time, beginning the effort long before the contrived controversy over Ukraine hit the news.
“The scary thing is, the Democrats have been out to get this president,” Jordan said. “I was struck by listening to Speaker Pelosi’s comments, her answer to your second question, she used the word ‘imposter.’
“I’m talking about the president of the United States, who 63 million people voted for, who won an Electoral College landslide,” he continued. “And yet these Democrats have been trying to get him — the start of this Congress, Congresswoman Tlaib said she wants to impeach him before any evidence.”
He went on: “Five members — think about this — five members of the Democrat, five Democrat members on the Intelligence Committee have voted to move forward with impeachment even before the whistleblower complaint was filed.”
Impeachment always the goal
There is little room for debate over Jordan’s assertion, as it is undeniable that a sizeable number of Democrats — and an even more substantial segment of the media — have had the openly stated goal of removing President Trump from office prior to the 2020 election.
Some in the media called for Trump’s impeachment before he was even inaugurated, and a handful of Democrats even pushed such a futile action during his first two years in office when Democrats were in the minority.
Since the 2018 midterm elections when Democrats gained the majority in the House, the clarion call on the left to oust Trump from office has only grown louder and more strident. In fact, as Jordan noted to Brennan, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) joyously boasted of how her party would “impeach the mother [expletive]” when she was sworn into office in January.
There is a significant portion of the left, fully supported by the media, that has refused to accept the outcome of the 2016 election and simply cannot tolerate Trump’s presence in the White House. With a growing fear that Trump will win re-election in 2020, their efforts to keep that from happening have only ramped up even more.
Democrats have wanted to impeach and remove Trump from office since day one of his administration, and the whole farce over Ukraine has simply helped them fill in the blanks of their pre-drafted articles of impeachment.
