Eric Swalwell: Impeaching Trump over
Roger Stone case not 'off the table'

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/12/2020 7:15:54 PM

California Rep. Eric Swalwell said on Wednesday that Democrats may consider another go at removing President Trump from office, this time for the Justice Department intervening in Roger Stone’s court case.CNN host Jake Tapper asked Swalwell whether House Democrats might consider impeaching Trump for ostensibly aiding the longtime Republican operative, who was convicted of obstruction, witness tampering, and lying to Congress last year. Prosecutors initially sought a sentence of up to nine years in prison, but the Justice Department stepped in and said it would pursue a lesser penalty for Stone."We’re not going to take our options off the table.

I don't see why not. They have demonstrated they can impeach for nothing at all with no supporting evidence. This is no more frivolous than the first go-round.

I believe the DOJ when they say their intervention in the case was before Trump's comment. House Democrats have very little credibility after 3+ years of non-stop investigations that have gone NOWHERE. I'm betting the 4 prosecutors may be in some of their own legal jeopardy, and likely internal department disciplinary action after agreeing to one sentence length and then going to the judge with a whole other, much longer sentence. Prosecutorial misconduct comes to mind. As for Swalwell, there may be a case of abuse of office case to be made

Presumably these dedicated “liberals” (really anti-liberals, since they are so closed-minded) have failed the usual antipsychotic and anti anxiety meds. Some experts still believe that electroshock therapy can be effective.

I guess the Dems figure they still have a chance of keeping the House. If they try Impeachment 2.0 with even thinner "evidence" than Impeachment 1.0, they'll definitely lose the House. I still think that their best shot at impeachment would be getting one of Trump's hotel maids to flip and testify that he told her to tear off those "Do Not Remove Under Penalty of Federal Law" tags off his hotel mattresses.

"President Swallwell" is away off base, as President Trump has the constitutional and presidential prerogative to pardon Roger Stone tomorrow if he wished to do so. Trump did not loose his First Amendment rights to speak out when he was elected. The Obama nominated Federal District Judge presiding over the Stone case can still sentence Stone to whatever time in prison that she wishes. Chances are Trump will then go from there.

I've said it before and I will say it again. President Trump needs to have a full time War Room to handle these people who are always accusing Trump and threatening Impeachment. Swallwell is a good example. Fire up the war room and dig into his life from Kindergarten on. Get his Financial information (I don't care if you do it legally or not. Democrats never care about that). Then start investigations on him. Drag him through the mud. That goes for Nadler and Schiff! Tie them up, make them use their own money to pay their Lawyers! Fight fire with fire and let that Street Fighter loose! Time to put the fear of God into these people who think they are running things in Washington!

I am all in with #15's suggestion. That plan would not be vindictive. Destroying Swalwell would be part justice because he IS part of the coup, and part preserving the Republic. Overthrowing the government used to get people really upset, then we all got cell phones, the media and education went far left and the rats went full communist. Publicly dismantling Swalwell AND the others would be the greatest thing for preserving the USA since the original states ratified the Constitution.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Impeachment resulted in Trump's highest approval rating ever, mega amounts of fundraising, loss of a congressman who switched parties, forcing their own reps in Trump-won districts to vote for impeachment, (thus putting them in the firing line), the destruction of the Biden campaign, the disgrace of Pelosi, the boredom and disapproval of the voters, the "outing" of anti-Trump deep-staters, and did I forget to say, Trump's acquittal? So want to impeach again? Bring it on, baby!

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has already poured hundreds of millions of dollars into his last-minute presidential bid, but the 2020 Democratic hopeful once described multimillion-dollar ad campaigns as "obscene" spending that would "annoy people."Bloomberg dismissed 2001 reports that he would spend upward of $30 million on his initial run for mayor in New York City. "At some point, you start to look obscene," Bloomberg told New York magazine. "There's a limited amount of ad time you can buy. It becomes dysfunctional; you annoy people with ads." Bloomberg went on to spend $73 million on his mayoral campaign, outspending his Democratic challenger Mark Green five-to-one.
