Maxine Waters’ plan to impeach Trump was shot down by someone she least expected
Radical leftists think because they now control the U.S. House Trump’s impeachment is only a matter of time.
A handful of extreme left-wing House members are hell bent on ensuring Trump doesn’t make it to 2020.
However, Maxine Waters’ plan to impeach Trump was shot down by someone she least expected.
Since winning the House majority, Nancy Pelosi has instructed incoming freshmen and Democrat leadership to ease off impeachment.
Pelosi has openly said that it is not on her priority list.
However, it is not just Pelosi that is stopping impeachment.
According to Axios, nearly all of the newly elected Democrats do not support impeaching President Trump… at least not in the immediate future.
The vast majority of freshman House Democrats are not quite ready to “impeach the motherf*cker.” Over the last two weeks, Axios reached out to every single one of the 64 new House Democrats, and only a tiny fraction said they were on board with impeachment.
The big picture: There’s been a cable news feeding frenzy over the “I” word, fueled in part by freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s bleep-worthy call for ousting the president. But the reality is that the vast majority of new House Democrats are right in line with their caucus’ leadership; they’re uninterested in discussing impeachment before special counsel Robert Mueller finishes his work.
Instead, they emphasized aggressive Democratic oversight, including opening investigations into the president, his campaign and his administration.
Many activists and candidates ran on the chance to impeach Trump once they won the House majority.
But politically savvy members of the Democratic Party know bringing impeachment proceedings against Trump will doom their chances in 2020.
Not every Democrat lives in an overwhelmingly Democratic district like Maxine Waters or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
An impeachment attempt could even fire up Republicans and drive them out to vote across the country.
But Maxine Waters’ impeachment plans aren’t totally off the table.
Democrats in the House are launching never-ending investigations to try and dig up any dirt they can to use as an excuse to impeach the President.
