In spite of the criminal allegations against President Trump’s project and evidence of illicit collusion between Trump and the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Democratic Leaders in Congress, for the most part, have batted away talk of impeachment.
With the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was in charge of the investigations into Trump, that is now changing.Last night, several
Members of Congress indicated that Trump’s most current crimes amount to blockage of justice and might reach the tipping point that brings enough Republicans on board to make impeachment a reality.Here is a sampling from Representatives Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY )and Jared Huffman(D-CA)
: Impeachment will take place if handful of Republicans in Congress sign up with Dems to put country above celebration. Or in 2019 after Dems win your home. https://t.co/g9U67QY2gg!.?.!Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), a member of the Judiciary Committee, told Anderson Cooper that this”might well produce impeachment proceedings,”and called the situation
“a looming constitutional crisis.”For her part, Congresswoman Maxine Waters( D-CA ), who has actually been all set for impeachment because January 20, is now talking about specific charges with the blunt accuracy she is known for.”I think he can be looked at and possibly even accuseded of blockage of justice.” The criminal offenses are now clearer than ever
. The concern that stays is: will Republicans reveal the stability and guts to do exactly what is right?
