In my column The Gang of Five and the Pseudo Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump I discussed those key figures in Congress working to undermine the Trump administration. I wrote about the Gang of Five stating:
Five powerful Congressional Chairmen and Chairwomen who control the Democratic Caucus, (3) from California ,(1) from New York and (1) from Maryland all from Democrat ‘safe’ Districts who received a total of approximately one million votes will decide whether to impeach and try to remove President Trump from office, a duly elected President that received approximately sixty three million votes.
The following are the votes counts for these five Congressmen and Congresswomen:
Pelosi 275,000 votes
Cummings 202,000 votes
Shiff 196,000 votes
Walters 152,000 votes
Nadler 192,000 vote
President Trump’s 63,000,000 voters could be disenfranchised by five powerful Democratic Congressmen and Congresswomen. Even if they are unable to convict the President they could bring the wheels of government to a halt. Their threats and spurious investigations have to a great extent already done this.
Mark Levin has the same view about what is really happening.
Sean Hannity talked to Mark Levin on Fox News on May 9 2019. Levin calls for a special council and that grand juries be impaneled to investigate the “Democrat cabal” working to negate the 2016 election of President Donald J. Trump.
Wall Street Journal in a column titled “The Pseudo-Impeachment” wrote:
Democrats hold show trials rather than vote to oust the President.
House Democrats are escalating their campaign against the Trump Administration with complaints that its resistance to Congressional requests for documents is a threat to democracy. It’s more accurate to say that Democrats are performing what amounts to a pseudo-impeachment so they don’t have to undertake a real one.
Democrats are agonizing over impeachment because while they’re itching to do it, special counsel Robert Mueller’s report blew up their Russian collusion hopes. He also took no position on obstruction of justice while reporting a highly critical “analysis” of President Trump’s actions. Democrats now find themselves caught between a left-wing base that says they’ll abdicate their duty if they don’t impeach and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s cold-blooded calculation that it could cost their majority in 2020.
What to do? Democrats have decided to act out a pseudo-impeachment that claims Mr. Trump and his Administration are committing offenses against the Constitution without daring to open a formal impeachment inquiry. The split-level goal is to appease the left while sparing the swing-district Democrats who delivered the 2018 majority from ever having to vote on articles of impeachment.
It appears Mark Levin and I are on the same sheet of music.
