Dem Sen. Coons: ‘Hypothetically’ Trump Could
Be Impeached for ‘Hateful, Racist’ Tweets

Original Article

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said on Tuesday during MSNBC’s impeachment coverage that “hypothetically,” President Donald Trump could be impeached for a “hateful, racist position” that he tweets about. Host Chuck Todd said, “I have to say, one of the logic things I don’t understand when I hear people making declarations about ‘this is not an impeachable offense.’ Correct me if I’m wrong, the impeachable offense is whatever a majority the House says it is, and if you get ousted, it’s whatever two-thirds of the Senate says?” Coons said, “Well, that’s subject to a lot of debate.” He continued, “It is a political process, Chuck.


I believe that the First Amendment to the Constitution comes into play here.

Hypothetically, they could impeach Trump for breathing if they had the votes to do it. And in the real world they would if they could. They want the republic to end and force us into a parliamentary type of government because they see around the world that helps liberalism.

Did these idiots even listen to at the very least, Professor Dershowitz?? Disagreement of political opinion is NOT a crime, and should NOT be the basis of impeachment. They must think they are bulletproof, tampering with voter suppression on such a large national scale is going to have repercussions like they will not believe.

I don't think the Founder foresaw impeachment when there was no possibility of conviction. Would a bipartisan Senate ever convict for "hateful" or even "racist" tweets? The reality is that the misconduct has to be so egregious that the President would lose the support of his own party. That seems to be what happened in the Nixon impeachment, though I think the Republicans who turned on him were foolish and weak. But it isn't easy to think of egregious misconduct that doesn't fit the elements of a crime.

There’s a reason Mitch McConnell has been Senate Majority Leader for the past 13 years: He gets the job done. And the biggest part of that job is keeping the GOP caucus, however necessary. At this point, he appears to have pulled off the feat once again. On Wednesday, McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) — always a wavering and unreliable GOP vote — met in the morning. After that meeting, The Hill reported, it was clear “that the question of having additional witnesses is settled, and the Senate will vote Friday to wrap up the impeachment trial of President Trump.”

This is a winning strategy. Joe Biden, 77, told an Iowa crowd that he needs a strong Vice President because he’s old and may die in office. “Whomever I pick” for VP, must “be capable of being president, because I’m an old guy — no I’m serious!” Biden said. Cringe. Biden also said there’s “8 women and least 4 or 5 people of color” that he believes are “totally qualified” to be his vice president. Old Joe also said earlier this week that he would like to have Michelle Obama has his running mate.

The Mexican government announced it has so far deported more than 2,000 members of the latest migrant caravan, demonstrating the seriousness of the country’s newfound enforcement of illegal immigration. Mexico deported roughly 2,303 Honduran migrants between Jan. 18 and Jan. 27, the National Migration Institute — the department in Mexico that manages immigration — reported Monday. The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.,-based immigration think tank, translated and flagged the recent numbers. The deportations pertained to the most recent U.S.-bound migrant caravan.

During an interview that aired Wednesday on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) weighed in on the possibility of some Senate Democrats voting along with Republicans to acquit President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial currently underway. Hawley told FNC’s Tucker Carlson the case falling apart and pointed to the shifting of the claims of wrongdoing by the House managers. “I think it is very possible, Tucker,” he said. “I think what it tells you is they just don’t have the case. I think we’re really watching here with the questioning tonight the Democrats case just fall apart. I just came from the floor. We’re in recess here.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a new digital campaign ad and a fundraiser on Tuesday in response to CNN’s Don Lemon mocking Trump supporters during a segment on his show that went viral on Monday night. The segment, which was from late on Saturday night, went largely unnoticed until Monday night when a former CNN employee tweeted out the clip, which quickly got a response from President Donald Trump and other top figures. The segment featured Lemon, far-left op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, and anti-Trump establishment Republican Rick Wilson who mocked Trump supporters as being uneducated rednecks who could not read, spell, or use maps.

Record-shattering numbers of Republican women are running for office under President Donald Trump, saying that they believe their voices are not being represented and that they must stand up to Democratic socialism. The number of Republican women who have filed for 2020 “shatters all previous records,” National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Chris Pack told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Two hundred women, 164 minorities, and 214 veterans have filed to run as Republicans in 2020 House races – and Pack says they expect more to file in states where filing is still open. “Chairman Tom Emmer has placed a strong emphasis on recruiting a diverse slate of candidates

Whatever the protestations of John Bolton as to who is leaking what to whom, the fact remains that Bolton has written a ‘tell-all’ book about his experiences as President Trump’s National Security Advisor, with the intent to release the book in the year Trump is running for re-election. It’s not easy to engage in behavior that is both petty and despicable at the same time, but Bolton has done it. He has made himself into the poster child for an off-the-charts arrogant ruling class that an increasingly large portion of Americans (maybe 63 million and counting?) are absolutely seething about.

House impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) repeatedly told the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Wednesday night that the House case was “proven beyond any doubt at all.”Nadler’s odd, and repeated, claim seemed to undermine claims by Democrats that they needed to see more witnesses and documents in the trial.

Mahatma Gandhi, who was just a teenager at the time, hadn’t told his parents where he was going; if they had found out, they would have been shocked to death.

On impeachment, Mitt Romney has thrown a spanner in the works. What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House. According to the Associated Press: WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s Mitt Romney’s big moment, again. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has for a year been a

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.

Mitch McConnell set up the rules for the Senate’s current impeachment hearing so that there would be an early vote on whether to call witnesses, or simply proceed to an up or down vote on impeachment. Either way, the result is foreordained, just as the impeachment process itself was foreordained when the Democrats captured the House in 2018. The president will be exonerated. The vote on whether to proceed with witnesses apparently will take place on Friday. I assume that McConnell thought it would be easy to get 51 votes in favor of terminating the Senate proceeding, but John Bolton’s ill-timed and ill-advised tell-all book
