Adam Schiff just got hit with some more really bad news about impeachment
Adam Schiff is not done racking up defeats on impeachment.
The consequences for Democrats continue to pile up.
And Adam Schiff just got hit with some more really bad news about impeachment.
When the Senate acquitted Donald Trump from the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff tried to spin their humiliating defeat in the best way possible by claiming that Trump was “impeached for life.”
Republicans countered by pointing out that Donald Trump was acquitted and when someone is acquitted it is also “for life.”
But Republicans were not going to beat back the Democrats with clever rhetorical games or by hanging their hat on the norm of American jurisprudence that an acquittal means the charges failed and – do not in fact – stick with the accused for life.
Instead, New York Congressman Lee Zeldin (R) told Breitbart radio host Matt Boyle that should the Republicans win back control of the House of Representatives the first thing the new Republican majority should do is expunge Donald Trump’s impeachment.
“The House Intelligence Committee basically turned itself into the House impeachment committee. […] If President Trump was reelected and Democrats kept control of the House — the only thing that we can say with confidence as far as what they’ll be prioritizing is trying to make President Trump the first president to be impeached twice . . . President Trump was acquitted for life. He shouldn’t have been impeached in the first place,” Zeldin told Breitbart.
This would add insult after injury to Pelosi and Schiff because it would eliminate impeachment from the record so Democrats couldn’t even trot out the “impeached for life” talking point.
With Bernie Sanders the likely Democrat nominee the chances the Republicans win back control of the House are increasing every day.
And that makes it more likely than ever a new Republican majority would erase the Democrats partisan impeachment witch hunt from the record.
