Well, that lasted all of one hot minute.
The chatter about “unity” and “moving forward” has now given way to impeachment.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Friday that House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., C.A.) told him she intends to deliver the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate this Monday.
So, instead of the news cycle being absorbed with talk of vaccines…the Democrats are pivoting to talk of impeachment.
It’s as though they simply cannot allow this opportunity to divide the country EVEN MORE go away.
Attacking Trump Hurts Biden, and the Country
It is my belief that holding an impeachment trial in the Senate will fundamentally hurt President Biden.
As he tries to put forth his 100-day agenda, the country will instead be consumed with an impeachment trial. And, Trump will once-again, suck all the oxogen out of the room.
Trump supporters will rally around him, and it’s quite possible that half the country will be left, again, disgusted by vitriol of the leftist media hungry for ratings and clicks.
Impeachment is bad for the country. It’s also, according to numerous legal scholars, quite possibly not even constitutional given that the former President is no longer President.
Nontheless, Democrats are indicating they care nothing about the health and unity of our country. They will use this impeachment trial as a way to further divide and cement their base.
Thus, instead of helping the country and its newly elected President, they’ll prove how eager they are to take the low-road.
But, so be it. Americans will recognize it for what it is and, I suspect, this move may ultimately help deliver conservatives new seats in 2022.
