Adam Schiff and the Democrats hope this week’s public hearings turn the tide in the impeachment witch hunt.
Schiff and his allies believe televised hearings will prove to the American people that the Democrats’ case to remove Donald Trump from office is airtight.
But this Bill Clinton insider told one truth about impeachment that had Adam Schiff fuming.
Dick Morris served as Bill Clinton’s pollster in the mid-1990s.
Morris’s polling and advice to Clinton that the President should adopt a political strategy of “triangulation” – taking credit for Republican ideas – saved Clinton’s Presidency after the 1994 midterm wipeout and led to Clinton’s 1996 re-election landslide over Republican nominee Bob Dole.
That popularity helped save Clinton when Republicans impeached him in 1998 for lying under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
In a radio interview with New York City’s 970AM’s John Catsimatidis, Morris broke down the political dynamic at play in the current impeachment witch hunt.
Many members of the fake news media are working to boost impeachment by writing scare stories about Donald Trump’s political prospects and sensationalizing the partisan charges against the President in the hope of frightening enough GOP Senators to vote to convict the President on whatever articles of impeachment the Democrat-run House conjures up.
Morris shot down these delusional fantasies spread by the fake news media that are also held by some Democrats.
In the interview, Morris noted that Donald Trump held a 90 percent approval rating with Republican voters and that any GOP Senator that voted with the Democrats to convict the President was “signing his own political death warrant.”
“[D]onald Trump isn’t going anywhere, and he’s not going to be removed from office,” Morris explained. “There is no way the Senate is going to convict Donald Trump. He has a 90% approval rating among Republicans. And any Republican senator who votes to convict Donald Trump is signing his own political death warrant because the very next cycle he is going to get a primary against a Trump supporter who is going to absolutely destroy him.”
“The central fact of impeachment is that it is a total and complete waste of time. My attitude toward it is wake me when it’s over,” Morris added.
In 1974, Richard Nixon resigned after Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater and other Republican Senators marched into the White House and told the President the votes were there in the Senate to remove him from office if the House of Representatives passed articles of impeachment.
Adam Schiff and his partners in the fake news media foresee this scenario playing out after the Democrats stage their Stalinist show trial hearings.
But there is one key difference between 1974 and 2019.
As Morris pointed out, Trump retains the overwhelming support of Republican voters.
During Watergate, President Nixon’s approval plunged into the 20s and he had lost all base of support.
