The Democrats’ Existential Imperative for (at least theoretical) Impeachment

Cross-linked from TrevorLoudon.com

Impeach President Trump for Russian collusion; for emoluments; for obstruction of justice. Now for Ukraine (and Australia and China and then (?). Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats and Deep Staters’ impeachment jihad could be viewed as obsessed, crazy – perhaps even comedic, as they (and Adam Schiff in particular) increasingly resemble Wile E. Coyote futilely chasing the Road Runner.

But even crazy and obsessed people can be rational in their machinations. What if the Deep State swamp crocodiles fully recognize that it is unlikely that they’ll succeed in removing President Trump from office through impeachment, yet still persist? Is there a method to their madness? Yes.

True, they desperately want to take out President Trump, and dare not rely upon the electoral process plus whatever voter fraud they can muster to accomplish that for them. So impeachment is their offensive element, and remains their best-case scenario. Still, after Mueller belly-flopped, they must have finally realized (if not before) that a successful impeachment and removal from office is highly unlikely, if not impossible.

But there is also a defensive element. They have to surmise that Trump’s declassifications, and (let us pray) DOJ indictments will occur between the release of the Inspector General’s report and the 2020 election. So they also require a defensive strategy well before the election. The Democrats can, and are, simultaneously playing both offense and defense.

Reports that Biden campaign asked networks to stop booking Giuliani

If you can defend your position and have nothing to hide then you should have no need to silence your opposition.

From NY Post: Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is asking top network executives to stop booking President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Biden campaign officials Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield wrote a letter to network news presidents, chief anchors and the executive producers of the Sunday shows for ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News Channel, Deadline reported.

“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuilani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the letter said. “While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”

Biden’s campaign asked the TV heavyweights if a campaign surrogate could get equal time if Giuliani continued to be booked.

“Vice President Biden and his campaign are the targets of these attacks. Saying simply that you will put a Democrat on, at a time when there are many declared candidates for the Democratic nomination for the presidency, is neither fair treatment nor equal treatment,” the campaign operatives argued.

The former mayor made the rounds Sunday morning, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” CBS’ “Face the Nation” and Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

During those appearances he continued to suggest that Joe and Hunter Biden were up to no good in their dealings with Ukraine. He also accused Hunter Biden’s business with China of corruption.

Ukrainian officials have said there was no evidence the Bidens engaged in any wrongdoing.

The Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry over allegations that President Trump pushed the new Ukrainian president to link up with Giuliani to look into the Bidens.
