Democrats Eye Trump Impeachment010818

After months of shying away from the toxic topic, Democrats increasingly are embracing political rhetoric that flirts with the impeachment of President Trump – signaling a strategy that could work its way into the mainstream in the 2018 midterms.

From the base, the party sees encouragement. A petition with 4 million signatures demanding Trump’s impeachment and a survey showing 70 percent of Democrats backing at least hearings on the matter could nudge Democrats further into the impeachment camp in the new year.

The publication of the “Fire and Fury” tell-all, meanwhile, has only emboldened Trump’s critics, by seeming to raise questions about his stability – which the president openly confronted in a weekend tweet-storm declaring he is a “very stable genius.”

Democrats must win 24 House seats and two Senate seats to regain control of Congress in 2018, but have a historically tough time motivating their voters in non-presidential years.

    Any President that has to tell the nation that he is a “very stable genius” has just proved he isn’t. That being said it’s still a gamble to use impeachment as a tool in a mid term election. Trump has promised to campaign for the incumbents which my be the kiss of death for them but only time will tell. I know if I was a democrat I wouldn’t want to rely to much on an anti Trump based campaign. Half the republicans will be doing enough of that anyways.

      You are absolutely shameless. You have a problem with a President who has to say he is stable and smart in the face of accusations to the contrary by a Liberal Doctor, one who has been censured by the APA for diagnosing a person with never having treated or even spoken to them. Yet you have no problem with a supposed medical professional making a diagnosis based on what she reads in the media. Have you ever heard of the “Goldwater Rule” of the APA? In the 60’s liberals attacked the stability of Barry Goldwater during his Presidential run. The APA censured those folks then and did the same for this person. Now you folks are back up to your old tricks. You are nothing but broken records who simply recycle the same dirty tricks since you are mad because your anointed one lost a sure thing election. Let me quote Hillary’s concession speech: “Like it or not, we must accept these results” and “We musk keep an open mind and give the new President a chance to lead”. In what way have you, or any other liberal a-hole, given him a chance or kept an open mind?
