Proft: The Somber, Prayerful, Reluctant House Democrats


House Democrats were “somber,” “prayerful,” and “reluctant” about impeachment—or so they say.

But, on December 6, 2017, 58 House Democrats voted for impeachment over Trump’s criticism of NFL players who knelt during the national anthem.

And, on January 19, 2018, 66 House Democrats voted for impeachment over Trump’s use of coarse language to describe underdeveloped countries.

Then, on July 17, 2019, 95 House Democrats voted for impeachment over Trump’s insulting statements about “The Squad.”

This says nothing of Rep. Al Green’s demand Trump be impeached over his “racism” … and Rep. AOC’s contention that Trump should be impeached over the citizenship question the Department of Commerce attempted to put on the 2020 census questionnaire.

Yet, we are supposed to believe the House Democratic caucus is comprised of reasonable people who take their Constitutional oath seriously.

Democrats in the House have been thirsting for impeachment since inauguration day.
