Impeachment: John Brennan and Obama’s Intel Ops
Holdovers strike again.
It turns out, as Rush Limbaugh noted in a recent broadcast, that the “whistleblower” is a CIA person detailed to the White House. Likely a holdover from Obama, he is John Brennan’s man.
When Obama left office, he left in place a mechanism designed to lead to Trump’s impeachment: The revelations of the intel community about Russian collusion with the incoming president.
Now that those are debunked by the very prosecutor hired to prove them, this same crowd, these same folks, have shifted their emphasis to the Ukraine scandal.
The allegation is that Trump used his official power to induce Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son. But the fact — caught on tape — is that Biden used his power as VP to get Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was after his son!
Trump does not deserve impeachment for bringing Biden to justice. Biden deserves our condemnation for trying to impede it.
The impeachment drama, begun suddenly by the whistleblower complaint, probably will play out this way:
House Democrats, driven by their blood thirsty base, will vote to impeach. All but their dedicated partisans will see them as over-reaching and ignoring the agenda they were elected to legislate. Party discipline will assure a unanimous Democratic vote to impeach but few if any Republicans will join them. Impeachment will be seen as a partisan ploy rather than the outcome of a real investigation.
