The Democrat-controlled House staked its reputation (and future) on impeaching Donald Trump. These establishment Democrats promised their voters that Trump’s “reign of terror” would come to an end. But they failed to convince the Senate to convict Trump. Now, the president is making a big prediction about Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler.
Why did Democrats impeach Donald Trump? We know it wasn’t because they believed he broke the law when he spoke with Ukraine’s president. Some might say they were driven to remove the president from office to control the 2020 Election. But impeachment is a serious thing, the nuclear option, if you will.
To stake your political reputation on impeaching a popular president is a drastic move. One that a party would only do… if they had no choice.
When Donald Trump sent his famous letter to Nancy Pelosi, after her House voted to impeach, he exposed the real reason she went for it. Pelosi herself had said impeachment had to be bipartisan or it would be a sham. She then went on to back a wildly partisan impeachment vote.
Why would she risk political suicide on an impeachment that was bound to fail in the Senate? Could it have something to do with how useless, how ineffective Democrats have been in recent years? Many Democrats promised to work with the president in the 2018 Elections. Instead, they did nothing.
Perhaps Pelosi thought she could win over liberal voters by backing impeachment. But now that it’s failed, there’s nothing protecting do-nothing legacy Democrats from primary challengers. In fact, Trump is predicting top Democrats might lose… to radical socialists.
Because of how badly they did with the Impeachment Hoax, AOC will primary Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, and win, and Jerry Nadler has a good chance of losing to his far left primary opponent! It is all getting quite interesting. Pelosi will lose the House, AGAIN! My poll numbers great. [Source: Twitter]
Trump accused Pelosi of pushing impeachment just to protect her job. It’s true that many long-time House and Senate Democrats are facing primary challengers in the form of young, pro-socialist candidates.
Joe Crowley is proof that an establishment Democrat is not safe these days. If a congressman wants to keep his job, he has to do something.
A smart person would bust his or her ass trying to get stuff done while in office. Maybe broker a few deals with the president to help their people? Not the Democrats. They have made it clear they have no intention of working with this administration. So, to prevent an upstart from taking their seats, they thought they could pander to voters with impeachment.
How’d that work out? Not well. Few Americans were convinced by the end. Impeachment was a big dud, resulting in acquittal.
Now, Schumer, Nadler, Schiff, maybe even Pelosi might lose their nominations to radical, far-left candidates.
Trump is even predicting socialist AOC would steal Schumer’s nom. That would be huge.
But it spells doom for the Democratic Party. Socialists like Sanders might be able to bamboozle Democrats into voting for him, but the rest of the country? Hardly.
If Democrats like Schumer and Nadler lose their primary races to socialists, the chances of the House flipping get even better (and keeping the Senate GOP).
AOC is considered a joke back in her district. She might try for another seat, just to avoid getting voted out of the one she has right now. If other radicals get the nomination, they might only have a ghost of a chance at winning a general election.
The Democratic Party might be facing extinction, thanks to socialists, come November. If enough far-left candidates get the nomination, the rest of the voting base will flock to the GOP.
And to think, all this might happen, because Pelosi was trying to protect her job.
