DNC Chair Candidates Talk Impeachment

The Democrats will leave no stone unturned in their effort to destroy this presidency, which they view as illegitimate. Republicans certainly opposed President Obama, but didn’t seek to destroy him in the manner Democrats and their allies on the streets are doing. And Republicans certainly gave Obama at least some grace period after he was elected.

From the Washington Examiner:

The seven candidates for chair of the Democratic National Committee laid out their plans to lead the political party, including impeaching President Trump – a rallying cry even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said is not yet warranted.

One of the top contenders in the race, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., cited examples of actions Trump has taken in his first month in office that are worthy of being fired as commander in chief.

“I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment. On day one, he was in violation of the emoluments clause,” Ellison said during a CNN town hall on Wednesday evening.

“It’s not just about Donald Trump. It’s about the integrity of the presidency,” said Ellison, known for his progressive stances as a Democratic lawmaker. “So yeah, I think we need to begin investigations not to go after Donald Trump, but to protect our Constitution.”
