The Good Book, in a commentary on man’s flawed nature, tells us, “As dogs return to their vomit, so fools repeat their folly.”
And scour Congress as long as you want, you won’t find bigger fools than U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the members of her Squad.
Today, as Georgia voters go to the polls to decide two critical U.S. Senate races, President Donald Trump is battling for the Peach State on two fronts.
He’s held rallies in support of Republican incumbent Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, and argued for their re-election as necessary to save the country from bad Democratic ideas.
Trump is also working over state officials about the dubious presidential election result there. On that, Trump is now fighting criticism over a leaked recording of a phone call he had with Georgia’s top elections official.
Trump reportedly asked Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” nearly 11,780 votes to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s win. Georgia is one state where Republicans have made specific, detailed claims about voting irregularities – such as thousands of votes cast by deceased, underage, or felon voters.
Enter The Squad.
Much as they did in 2019 with Trump’s call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, radical Democrats want Trump impeached for allegedly asserting pressure on Raffensperger.
It’s worth noting that Democrats, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, began plotting Trump’s impeachment a month before office. They filed for his impeachment six months into his term. And they renewed the talk again after Democrats took over the House in 2019, when Squad member Rep. Rashida Talib infamously bellowed to supporters that Democrats would “impeach the mother—–.”
So, the idea Democrats would look for any reason to impeach is not surprising, even though they have failed miserably – a year ago 51 percent of people told Gallup Trump should not have been impeached for Ukraine – and made it a purely partisan exercise.
Now, it’s “the call.”
“I absolutely think it’s an impeachable offense,” AOC told The Hill of Trump’s comments to Raffensperger, “and if it was up to me, there would be articles on the floor quite quickly.”
“He, I mean, he is trying to – he is attacking our very election. He’s attacking our very election.”
AOC’s buddy, Rep. Ilhan Omar, added on Twitter, “If the past four years have shown us anything, it’s that the President and his collaborators become more emboldened when they are not held accountable for their crimes. The constitutional remedy for a high crime and misdemeanor committed by the President is clear: impeachment.”
“The president’s effort to openly overturn our election results by putting pressure on the Republican Secretary of State of Georgia is a crime, plain and simple,” Omar added. “The constitutional remedy for a high crime and misdemeanor committed by the president of the United States is clear: impeachment.”
But other Democrats are apparently not blinded by such rhetorical genius.
According to Fox News, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., told reporters, “If today is Jan. 4, there’s 16 days until Joe Biden is the next president of the United States of America. … The chaos, confusion, conflict, and corruption that Donald Trump has inflicted upon this country is something to be evaluated by the historians at this particular point in time.”
“We’re not looking backward,” he added, “we’re looking forward to the inauguration of Joe Biden on Jan. 20.”
On Tuesday, Rep. James Clyburn, the No. 3 Democrat, told CNN that there could “very well be criminal charges” to be brought against Trump. But, he added, “I do believe with only 14 or 15 days left in this presidency it would be a waste of our time here in the House to pursue impeachment.”
