Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee just suggested that Vice President-elect Kamala Harris should be impeached.
“Politicians say reckless things all the time,” Huckabee said during an appearance with Fox Business on Saturday, after saying that he disagreed with President Donald Trump’s statements about Mike Pence during his speech at the Capitol rally on Jan. 6, but noting that he did not find the comments “impeachable.”
“If we’re going to impeach Donald Trump for what he said, then we’d better impeach Kamala Harris for saying the things she did last summer about the rioters and the looters. And even establishing a monetary fund to get them out of jail on bail so they could get back to the riots,” Huckabee said.
“That should be an impeachable offence if we’re going to play this game; everyone should have a turn,” Huckabee added. Watch the segment at the Washington Examiner.
This can go both ways
Huckabee has a point: House Democrats (and ten Republicans) recently impeached President Donald Trump, accusing him of inciting the deadly Capitol riot on January 6th, so what makes Harris and her Democrat colleagues immune?
Harris openly encouraged the unrest across the nation last summer. American cities burned and innocent Americans died as Harris and her fellow Democrats supported and encouraged the protests, knowing full well the potential for violence.
However, thanks to a hyperpartisan mainstream media and a Democrat-controlled Congress, Harris and her cohorts will never face accountability.
For their part, President Trump and Republicans have widely condemned the violence at the capitol. None of that matters to Democrats who were eager to impeach him yet again on his way out of the White House.
Living above the law
Democrats encouraged unrest all summer long and often criticized and obstructed President Trump’s administration for trying to enforce public order.
However, in a matter of weeks, they turned around and quickly impeached President Trump over a riot that he himself has condemned.
Democrats have set a precedent, and they may not enjoy the consequences if Republicans regain the House and Senate in 2022.
