THE FEDERALIST: Impeachment Theater Could Not Have Gone Worse For Democrats
Impeachment Theater Could Not Have Gone Worse For Democrats

Since removal was never a realistic outcome, impeachment was about harming Trump in an election year. By that standard, it could not have gone worse.

By Mollie Hemingway
FEBRUARY 5, 2020


Democrats’ impeachment effort was never about removing President Donald Trump from office. If it had been, it would not have been rushed through the House of Representatives without a proper predicate or investigation.

No reasonable person expected the Republican-controlled Senate to remove a sitting president for anything Rep. Adam Schiff repeatedly alleged, no matter how unfairly he characterized Trump’s thoughts, words, or actions.

Impeachment was about satisfying the corporate media and Democratic base that had demanded it for years. And since removal was never a realistic outcome, it was about harming Trump in an election year.

By that standard, it could not have gone worse. Here are three ways that Pelosi’s gambit backfired bigly.

1. Donald Trump’s Numbers Went Up, Not Down

The latest Gallup poll of registered voters shows that Trump’s approval rating is the highest it’s been since his inauguration — 49 percent. That number went up from 39 percent in October, which was during the House’s impeachment process, such as it was.

During that same time, approval of the Democratic Party fell from 48 percent to 45 percent and approval of the Republican Party shot up from 43 percent to 51 percent. That’s the first time the GOP has had majority approval since 2005. The party also has a rare partisan-ID advantage.

Approval for Trump’s handling of the economy and the killing of terrorists have strong majorities as well. More than half of those polled favor his acquittal, economic confidence is the highest it’s been in decades, and national confidence is at a 15-year high. The Gallup poll matches other recent surveys showing Trump with high marks.

The entire point of impeachment was to push Trump’s numbers down. They went up. They went up despite media push polls trying to suggest, however implausibly, that a legitimate majority of Americans wanted Trump removed from office. Trump’s numbers went up despite overwhelmingly favorable coverage of the slipshod impeachment case.

This is a huge disaster for Democrats.

2. Joe Biden’s Candidacy Was Irreparably Harmed By Impeachment Facts

When the Russia collusion hoax imploded finally with the July 2019 testimony of Robert Mueller, the man ostensibly in charge of the special counsel probe into the matter, Democrats had to scramble for another reason to push impeachment. With the help of an anonymous whistleblower — reported to be a partisan ally of Joe Biden’s from his time as President Barack Obama’s point man over Ukraine — Democrats concocted an elaborate scheme to accuse President Trump of abuse of power related to Ukraine.

The original claim was that President Trump had committed a campaign finance violation for asking for assistance with a government investigation into Ukraine’s known 2016 election meddling and for Ukraine to look into corruption issues related to the family of former Vice President Joe Biden. His son Hunter Biden had received a lucrative $80,000-a-month gig to sit on the board of a reportedly corrupt energy concern. Biden had no relevant experience for the position apart from being the son of the man handling Ukraine policy for the Obama administration.

Democrats alleged that the concerns President Trump expressed amounted to 2020 election interference requiring immediate removal from office. But no one ever offered a non-corrupt explanation for the Biden family’s lucrative entanglement in Ukraine, making the argument much more difficult.

Joe Biden just underperformed in the Iowa caucuses. He is a two-time vice president who had the entire Democratic Party establishment behind him. Because of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s antics in delaying the delivery of the articles of impeachment to the Senate, he had more or less free run over the state for the last two weeks while serious opponents Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar were forced to remain in Washington for the impeachment trial.

You people will believe anything

All of you could see this impeachment was going to go nowhere

I wrote 4 months ago that if we could see the impeachment was going to go nowhere in the Senate

If we could see this, you don’t think the paid professional politicians couldn’t see this would only guarantee Trump re-election?

This entire PRESIDENCY is a PSY OP no different than the RUSSIAN COLLUSION PROPAGANDA

An exercise in tyranny to condition is into submission through fear and provocation

The same INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES that supposedly framed this President are the same SUBVERSIVE OPERATIVES that allowed 9/11 to happen while testifying a year later that Iraq had nukes

Nothing but SPIES and LAWYERS conspiring to steal and cheat and extort at all levels involving every facet of government including our allies

Ivanka Trump and Christopher Steele having had a previous relationships proves a propaganda narrative is being regurgitated on both sides of the aisle

Why didn’t this President just say that Steele was a jilted ex-boyfriend of Ivanka’s that made this all up when his name was revealed 2 years ago?

Hundreds of interviews and rallies and not once did Trump mention that he knew Steele

I have stated that it seemed like Hannity was putting out the same information we had known for 2 years pretending like they were new revelations when those of us who researched this knew who Steele was before the midterms!

No different than how Hannity keeps repeating over and over that the DIRTY DOSSIER was the legal predicate for surveillance almost like he was brainwashing those of us that already knew Obama had been spying on everyone since before the 2012 election

No different than the propaganda being regurgitated repeatedly over and over that the reason all of this illegal surveillance even happened was because they never thought she would get caught because they all thought she was going to win yet the Trump Campaign’s own internal polling indicated a LANDSLIDE for almost a year

How didn’t the.FBI and Clinton Campaign not know this

Obama had to see the polling for himself and anyone with eyes could see the overwhelming support at CANDIDATE TRUMP’S rallies yet they all thought she would win?

If that were the case then why didn’t they feel the need to cheat?

Why risk a guaranteed win by cheating?

Your lengthy theory on what you think is going on below the surface can be flushed down the toilet quite quickly if you have a history of tender feelings towards a variety of corruptocrat liberals.

In that case, you'd be similar to an alcoholic accusing others of drinking too much and driving when drunk.

No different than how Hannity keeps repeating over and over that the DIRTY DOSSIER was the legal predicate for surveillance almost like he was brainwashing those of us that already knew Obama had been spying on everyone since before the 2012 election

No different than the propaganda being regurgitated repeatedly over and over that the reason all of this illegal surveillance even happened was because they never thought she would get caught because they all thought she was going to win yet the Trump Campaign’s own internal polling indicated a LANDSLIDE for almost a year

How didn’t the.FBI and Clinton Campaign not know this

Obama had to see the polling for himself and anyone with eyes could see the overwhelming support at CANDIDATE TRUMP’S rallies yet they all thought she would win?

If that were the case then why didn’t they feel the need to cheat?

Why risk a guaranteed win by cheating?

You people will believe anything

All of you could see this impeachment was going to go nowhere

I wrote 4 months ago that we could see the impeachment was going to go nowhere in the Senate

If we could see this, you don’t think the paid professional politicians couldn’t see this would only guarantee Trump re-election?

This entire PRESIDENCY is a PSY-OP no different than the RUSSIAN COLLUSION PROPAGANDA

An exercise in tyranny to condition us into submission through fear and provocation

The same INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES that supposedly framed this President are the same SUBVERSIVE OPERATIVES that allowed 9/11 to happen while testifying a year later that Iraq had nukes

Nothing but SPIES and LAWYERS conspiring to steal and cheat and extort at all levels involving every facet of government including our allies

Ivanka Trump and Christopher Steele having had a previous relationship proves a propaganda narrative is being regurgitated on both sides of the aisle

Why didn’t this President just say that Steele was a jilted ex-boyfriend of Ivanka’s that made this all up when his name was revealed 2 years ago?

Re: THE FEDERALIST: Impeachment Theater Could Not Have Gone Worse For Democrats
Impeachment Theater Could Not Have Gone Worse For Democrats

Since removal was never a realistic outcome, impeachment was about harming Trump in an election year. By that standard, it could not have gone worse.

By Mollie Hemingway
FEBRUARY 5, 2020


Democrats’ impeachment effort was never about removing President Donald Trump from office. If it had been, it would not have been rushed through the House of Representatives without a proper predicate or investigation.

No reasonable person expected the Republican-controlled Senate to remove a sitting president for anything Rep. Adam Schiff repeatedly alleged, no matter how unfairly he characterized Trump’s thoughts, words, or actions.

Impeachment was about satisfying the corporate media and Democratic base that had demanded it for years. And since removal was never a realistic outcome, it was about harming Trump in an election year.

By that standard, it could not have gone worse. Here are three ways that Pelosi’s gambit backfired bigly.

1. Donald Trump’s Numbers Went Up, Not Down

The latest Gallup poll of registered voters shows that Trump’s approval rating is the highest it’s been since his inauguration — 49 percent. That number went up from 39 percent in October, which was during the House’s impeachment process, such as it was.

During that same time, approval of the Democratic Party fell from 48 percent to 45 percent and approval of the Republican Party shot up from 43 percent to 51 percent. That’s the first time the GOP has had majority approval since 2005. The party also has a rare partisan-ID advantage.

Approval for Trump’s handling of the economy and the killing of terrorists have strong majorities as well. More than half of those polled favor his acquittal, economic confidence is the highest it’s been in decades, and national confidence is at a 15-year high. The Gallup poll matches other recent surveys showing Trump with high marks.

The entire point of impeachment was to push Trump’s numbers down. They went up. They went up despite media push polls trying to suggest, however implausibly, that a legitimate majority of Americans wanted Trump removed from office. Trump’s numbers went up despite overwhelmingly favorable coverage of the slipshod impeachment case.

This is a huge disaster for Democrats.

2. Joe Biden’s Candidacy Was Irreparably Harmed By Impeachment Facts

When the Russia collusion hoax imploded finally with the July 2019 testimony of Robert Mueller, the man ostensibly in charge of the special counsel probe into the matter, Democrats had to scramble for another reason to push impeachment. With the help of an anonymous whistleblower — reported to be a partisan ally of Joe Biden’s from his time as President Barack Obama’s point man over Ukraine — Democrats concocted an elaborate scheme to accuse President Trump of abuse of power related to Ukraine.

The original claim was that President Trump had committed a campaign finance violation for asking for assistance with a government investigation into Ukraine’s known 2016 election meddling and for Ukraine to look into corruption issues related to the family of former Vice President Joe Biden. His son Hunter Biden had received a lucrative $80,000-a-month gig to sit on the board of a reportedly corrupt energy concern. Biden had no relevant experience for the position apart from being the son of the man handling Ukraine policy for the Obama administration.

Democrats alleged that the concerns President Trump expressed amounted to 2020 election interference requiring immediate removal from office. But no one ever offered a non-corrupt explanation for the Biden family’s lucrative entanglement in Ukraine, making the argument much more difficult.

Joe Biden just underperformed in the Iowa caucuses. He is a two-time vice president who had the entire Democratic Party establishment behind him. Because of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s antics in delaying the delivery of the articles of impeachment to the Senate, he had more or less free run over the state for the last two weeks while serious opponents Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar were forced to remain in Washington for the impeachment trial.

I think they're going to try and hack the Senate elections, and then blame their fraudulent wins, voting hacks, on the pretense that the people didn't like the Impeachment treatment in the Senate which of course will be a complete lie.

Because they want to ram in their bills and they also want to really impeach both Trump and Pence.

Not only can I read between the lines and have already entertained all of these ideas, but there is a problem with this.


1. We can only do things, ie respond, vote, take a stance, on what is before us. If we were all convinced that there is no good side to stand on, and that this is all a giant manipulation right up there with the Bildenburg meeting years ago, prior to the invasion of Europe in 2014, where they wanted to control and set everyone back in scarsity and Merkel made some big speeches. In order to do that could see a huge manipulation taking place, could see Europe being overtaxed with influx of migrants and could see a dismantling of our modern advancements in human rights.

This could all be acted out on both sides to further this agenda.

As one example. There are other threads of information given out years ago.

But you can't speak out and you can't make stands on shadow ideas.


You still stand up for truth and justice and an end of corruption and especially with the Podesta emails and anything related to pedogate, you have to make a stand.

And again, since we don't know for certain, bearing false witness against lets say Trumps side when the other side is corrupt in plain view, its not how humans respond.


2. Here is the thing on a cosmic spiritual level. The people can't guess those deeper plans. But they make choices based on what's in front of them.

On a spiritual level, they are choosing to drain the swamp and do away with corruption and dark hats who harm children or freedom or equality.

If all sides are playing them but only one is openly corrupt, shame on the bad guys, Not Shame On The People.


What would you suggest people do if they were to distrust all sides, hmmm...if they stayed their hand and didn't choose to support somebody, they'd have the worst choices shoved on them.


So operationally, don't think this matters.

Good points, Sungaze.

Must admit Ivanka having been friends with Steele since 2007 is news to me. Wonder what she thinks of his little project (the dossier).
