Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ war on Donald Trump took an unexpected turn.
Democrats were unprepared for what was about to hit them.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi said three words about Trump. They ended up her biggest humiliation.
When it became clear that the Senate would exonerate Donald Trump from the Democrats’ phony and partisan articles of impeachment, Democrats had to conjure up a way to spin an embarrassing defeat into a victory they could sell to their voters.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi coined the phrase “impeached for life.”
That led to a host of Republican Congressmen and Senators declaring that Donald Trump was “acquitted for life” after the Senate rejected the Democrats’ abuse of power and obstruction of Congress articles of impeachment.
That would not be Republicans’ final word on the matter.
In fact, New York Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin – who proved to be one of the President’s most effective and energetic defenders – declared that if Republicans win back the majority in the House this November, the first act of the new majority should be to erase the President’s impeachment from the record.
“I believe that that should be one of the very first orders of business in January of 2021 — is to expunge this sham impeachment,” Zeldin told Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle.
Zeldin went on to explain that under Adam Schiff’s direction, the House Intelligence Committee abused its power and that if Democrats retained their majority, they would turn back to impeachment to obliterate President Trump’s second term.
“The House Intelligence Committee basically turned itself into the House impeachment committee. … If President Trump was reelected and Democrats kept control of the House — the only thing that we can say with confidence as far as what they’ll be prioritizing is trying to make President Trump the first president to be impeached twice…” Zeldin went on to say that “President Trump was acquitted for life. He shouldn’t have been impeached in the first place.”
Election forecasters sneered at the idea Republicans could win back the House.
But socialist Senator Bernie Sanders emerging as the Democrat Party frontrunner changes that calculus.
A National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee poll of the battleground districts both parties plan to contest in 2020 found Donald Trump leading Bernie Sanders by a five-point margin.
That survey led pundits to realize that Trump could defeat Sanders and generate coattails long enough to win back a Republican House.
Theoretical discussions of Sanders’ impact on the race for House gave way to reality when during a 60 Minutes interview, Sanders praised the murderous Castro regime in Cuba for their literacy program.
Freshman Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell – who flipped a Republican-held seat in South Florida by just 1.8 percent – quickly condemned Sanders’ remarks about Castro.
“As the first South American immigrant member of Congress who proudly represents thousands of Cuban Americans, I find Senator Bernie Sanders’ comments on Castro’s Cuba absolutely unacceptable,” Mucarsel-Powell tweeted.
Mucarsel-Powell was the first Democrat creating distance from Sanders, which may be the only path to political survival for Democrats running for re-election in swing or red districts.
The sudden development of the House majority being in play rendered Zeldin’s declaration that a new GOP majority would expunge Trump’s impeachment more than a rhetorical ploy to fire up the base.
Republicans quickly realized it was an achievable goal.
