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.

Albert Mohler: A Partisan Impeachment

In Washington D.C., the big story last week—and continuing into this week—has been the impeachment process going on in the United States House.

The New York Times reported on how the Intelligence Committee adopted the report—and I quote—“strictly along partisan lines, hours after its release.”

Here’s what you need to know at this point. That line—“strictly along partisan lines”—indicates just how partisan this process has become, and it also points to the reason why the process is likely to get nowhere after the House of Representatives is likely to vote for the impeachment of the president—also along predictable partisan lines.

It should be considered evidence about the strength of our constitutional system that we have an impeachment process. It should also be considered as evidence of the strength of our constitutional order that no president is likely ever to be removed from office strictly along partisan lines.

Bowyer: The Markets and the Message on Impeachment


In the midst of the push to remove Trump from office, it’s important to remember what the left said last time a President was impeached. When Clinton was under threat, the media and Democratic politicians were arguing that Republicans should back off—because impeachment was bad for the economy.

CNN and NPR—among others—blamed poor market performance on GOP efforts to remove Clinton, while Democratic members of the House denounced the disruptions to markets caused by impeachment.

Now, Democrats in politics and the media are pushing for impeachment; not a single word about economic uncertainty.

If removing the president is bad for the economy then why are markets hitting record levels? The answer is simple. Markets are shrugging all this off not because removal would be good, but because they simply don’t take it seriously. They know what this is, nothing more than political theater.
