After months of negative news coverage and bogus hearings, House Democrats are just a week away from voting to impeach Donald Trump. Dropping the bribery charge, they are trying to get him on “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.” But it might not be as open and shut as they’d hoped. Because word is getting around that more than a few Democrats will be voting against their little scheme.
We know that Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump since he became president. They all but announced their scheme, through various interviews, tweets, and attacks. They tried to get him on the Mueller probe, but even he cleared the president’s name. The fact that they took an innocent phone call and tried to turn it into a scandal shows us how utterly pathetic and undemocratic these Democrats are.
This entire impeachment scheme is about preventing Trump from winning in 2020. Democrats admitted they have nobody that can beat him. Recently, Schiff even let slip that they can’t let voters decide next year. Democrats have taken it upon themselves to decide—for you—who should be the next president.
If that’s not an abuse of power, I don’t know what is!
This week, they put forward their articles of impeachment. They will be voting next week whether to doom their party or not. But it’s not as cut and dry as it seems. Because top Democrat aids are claiming plenty of representatives are having cold feet.
Democrats are expecting wide-scale defections among their rank and file when Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump come to the floor for a vote next week, the Washington Post reports…
House Democratic leaders are bracing for some defections among a group of moderate Democrats in swing districts who are concerned a vote to impeach President Trump could cost them their seats in November…

There are a total of 31 Democrats in the House from districts that Trump won in 2016, with 20 more that are battlegrounds for 2020. That means there is a large number of Democrats who—if they support impeachment—are going directly against the wishes of voters.
Do they expect to keep their jobs after the election?
Let’s get real, for a minute. We know impeachment was doomed from the start. Let’s say it gets passed. Every Democrat from a red district will get voted out next year. That means Pelosi will lose her House majority. On top of that, impeachment will go to the Senate. Not only will the Republican-controlled Senate vote to acquit Trump—but the trial they hold might expose all kinds of wrongdoing by the left.
It would be a bloodbath.
What could be worse is if Democrats don’t vote to impeach. Red district Democrats might be safe, but all the others will get pounded by their own supporters. Democrats have been promising impeachment for three years. For them to stumble right at the finish line will not be acceptable to their rabid, Trump-hating supporters.
It’s a lose-lose situation for the left. And many Democrats are seeing that. Sad that they didn’t see that, say, three years ago! But better late than never, eh?
According to the math, only 19 Democrats have to vote no for impeachment to fail. With nearly 50 vulnerable Democrats in the House, we might actually see that happen. Every Republican will vote against it.
Considering how flimsy the left’s argument has been over the last two months, you can imagine many Democrats turning on impeachment. They can easily say that there were no grounds to impeach and that the evidence doesn’t prove Trump’s guilt.
As I often say, if those Democrats were smart, they’d start saying that now. When the vote comes, they can justify voting no and win the support of voters.
But something tells me they’re not smart. Most likely the vote will pass and the Democrats will be doomed.
They might not recover from this for years.
