Sometimes, you can find yourself making the same bad choices so many times until you have to deal with them.
Democrats have been trying for what seems like forever to try and get President Trump or Republican politicians in general in some kind of gotcha moment and it just hasn’t worked.
So, they double down. When it doesn’t work, they double down again. They keep going and going until they have absolutely nothing left that they can fall back on and there they are, having to answer to their supporters as to why they haven’t gotten a single thing done other than wasting a lot of time and pointing a hell of a lot of fingers.
Democrats have been obsessed with the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump, but their impeachment obsession might end up hurting the Democratic Party.
Impeachment talks should have ended after Trump was vindicated by the failed Russian investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller, which found no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.
But Democrats were not satisfied with the Mueller report, and the Democrat-controlled House is threatening to subpoena members of the Trump administration and others in a desperate attempt to get more dirt.
“We’re fighting all the subpoenas,” Trump said last month.
Trump’s vow to fight Democrats’ frivolous subpoenas might be seen as a dare to start impeachment proceedings, which would be an arduous process that wouldn’t end well for Democrats.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is cautiously trying to avoid taking the “impeachment” bait.
“Impeachment is one of the most divisive things you can do,” Pelosi warned during a press conference on Thursday.
It’s obvious to Republicans that Trump was cleared by Mueller’s report and that Democrats are desperately trying to find new dirt on Trump with their incessant subpoena threats.
And that’s a message that can be clearly communicated to the American people — it would be ridiculous to impeach Trump because he has done nothing worthy of impeachment.
Democrats, on the other hand, would struggle making a clear case for impeachment, but that’s not stopping the more radical wing of the Democratic Party, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, from aggressively pursuing impeachment proceedings.
