WaPo Reporter Says Some Democrats Are ‘Getting Cold Feet’ About Impeaching President Trump (VIDEO)

Written by K. Walker on November 25, 2019

Impeaching a President is a big deal. Some journalists are noticing that…

Nancy Pelosi is attempting to balance her very divided party — some of the Democrats that won in 2018 ran on a #Resist platform that included impeachment and the removal of President Trump from office. Pelosi, however, knows that impeachment is incredibly divisive and is political suicide in swing states especially for such a flimsy excuse that began on November 9, 2016, and has been shape-shifting ever since.

Pelosi had tried to tamp down the rabid wing of the party dismissing them as just a handful of rabble-rousers, but the inmates are now running the asylum as well as the impeachment process.

Remember, Pelosi didn’t want to go down the impeachment path because she knew that the public wasn’t on board and it’s incredibly divisive for the country. She said that in order to impeach the president, the case would have to be “compelling, overwhelming, and bipartisan” — but that’s not the case.

The polls are showing that the American public isn’t buying what the Democrats are trying to sell with the impeachment B.S.

While some in the Media(D) are clinging to the “bribery” narrative to try to push voters to become Impeachment True Believers, others in the Partisan Press are attempting to mitigate the damage done by the Impeachment SchiffShow by saying that it might be reasonable for Democrats to move away from impeachment because it could hurt them politically.

Washington Post‘s Rachel Bade was on CNN and she spilled the beans:

I think what we’re starting to see, you know, is when the impeachment inquiry was first announced and they started to do these depositions, a lot of people were asking, ‘Can Nancy Pelosi peel off any Republicans?’

But I increasingly think the question is becoming does she lose more Democrats? Because Republicans have really unified behind the president – and although two Democrats voted against the impeachment inquiry rules that they voted on a couple of weeks ago, we are hearing behind-the-scenes there are moderates getting cold feet. And it comes back to these ads and people being afraid for being punished for voting to impeach the president.

Bade is blaming the anti-impeachment ads that would run in swing states, but if the case for impeachment was “compelling, overwhelming, and bipartisan” as Nancy Pelosi claimed it had to be, the negative ads wouldn’t matter.

The fact is that the impeachment hearing has been nothing but a propaganda campaign with a melodramatic Adam Schiff as the director of the carefully scripted performance. He has blocked Republicans from bringing forward some key witnesses, the witnesses the Democrats produced had no clear proof that the President did anything wrong, and Republicans stood firm in their support for the President. It was, as they say, an epic fail.

Things aren’t looking good for the Democrats if they proceed.

The question is, will Speaker Pelosi allow the impeachment process to go to a vote and potentially damage the Democrats in purple states with 2020 coming up, or will she find an excuse to squash the impeachment vote and try to save face?

That’s the $100 Million Question.
