When discussing Donald Trump and the Russia investigation the “I” word is now in play. I`m not talking about the word “idiot,” even most Republicans would agree that the way Trump has handled the presidency in general, and the Russia controversy in specific is idiotic.
I`m talking about the word “Impeachment,” it`s not just Democratic nutjobs like Rep. Maxine Waters who are calling for Trump`s impeachment, even level-headed Republicans are bandying about the weighty word.
Impeachment is now in the national zeitgeist, there`s a Web site with almost a million signed onto a petition imploring the Senate to impeach Trump. There`s an “Impeach Trump” Twitter account and late night comics make jokes about Trump being impeached almost every night.
Donald Trump isn`t going to be impeached as long as Republicans control both chambers of Congress, but the impeachment talk is an albatross around Trump`s neck that ensures that his agenda is dead in the water.
Impeachment talk has now hit a fever pitch with the revelation James Comey penned a memo after a Valentine`s Day meeting with Trump in which Comey associates say the president asked him to end the investigation into former national security adviser and noted Russophile Michael Flynn.
Can you say “obstruction of justice”? Can you say “Watergate all over again”? Cay you say “failed presidency”?
I`m praying that Democrats will take control of the Senate in the mid-term elections and impeach the bastard.
