There Is A Theory Going Around That Dems Want The Impeachment To Fail
The impeachment of Trump is moving forward despite the fact that Senator Rand Paul has made everyone aware that it is already dead in the water. Paul tried to get the whole thing thrown out by telling Dems that 45 of the 50 GOP Senators are not going to vote to impeach Trump and Dems need 17 GOP votes. So some believe that Dems actually want the impeachment to fail and that it is all going according to their plan.
"To summarize, Republicans are trying to signal that Democrats should just drop the impeachment. The votes are not there; ergo, it’s a waste of time. All it will do is raise Trump’s profile, give him a platform to air his grievances, and launch his political revival.
The Democrats want that.
Despite President Biden’s pretensions about bringing our nation together, Democrats want to impeach Trump because it will be divisive, not despite its divisiveness. They are banking on his being acquitted and politically revived, not underestimating that possibility. They want him to run for office again, not banish him.
Yes, the former president’s impeachment trial will be divisive for the country, but not in a way that troubles the Democrats. Rather, it will unite the Left while intensifying the Right’s internal conflict.
With Republicans having agreed to delay the trial proceedings for a couple of weeks, impeachment will be a boon for the fledgling Biden administration. The new president will get his major appointees confirmed and installed in the various executive departments and agencies. Meantime, Biden will get a double windfall.
First, impeachment will distract attention from the new administration’s unimpressive start on vaccine roll-out. Biden was not elected because Americans were desperate to rejoin the Paris climate accords and ensure that mediocre boy-athletes could rack up medals in girls’ high-school sports. He was elected to do two things: not be Trump and lead the country past COVID-19. So far, as Jim Geraghty expertly details daily, the vaccination ramp-up has been less than ambitious; the biggest problems continue to be coordination with and distribution by Democrat-controlled states; and the biggest scandal is extortion by the Democrat-patron teachers unions, which is keeping kids out of public schools. Impeachment will give the media-Democrat complex something else to spotlight.
Second, as an opportunity for centrist Democrats and post-American progressives to unite against their arch-nemesis, impeachment will, for a time, distract attention from President Moderate-Joe’s efforts to throw his left flank the red meat it was mostly denied in his cabinet selections. A few weeks of Donald Trump coverage couldn’t come at a better time, with Biden appeasing the climate-alarmists, killing the popular Keystone XL pipeline (and killing thousands of jobs with it), making way for a raft of economy-stifling regulations, doubling down on transgender ideology and immigration amnesty, planning to rejoin the ludicrous Iran nuclear deal, and intensifying societal tensions by selectively condemning insurrectionist violence."
This seems a bit farfetched. Trump got 74 million votes, that's not very divided and if you take into account that there are claims of election fraud, he may have very well won had there not been tampering. Most courts didn't even hear him out, meaning they chose to just let it happen. We definitely need to fix the voting process before the next election. But Dems hate Trump and I would think their true purpose is to disqualify him from ever running again. They were blaming Trump for the U.S. Capitol Building Raid and calling it an attempted coup when he told his followers to be peaceful...
