We were subjected to the Russiagate Mueller investigation for three long years with endless talk (or more accurately, unhinged shouts) of impeachment. While Trump may have done some questionable things during the investigation (according to an investigation started on very dubious grounds), the actual meat of the matter; that Trump colluded with Russia, turned out to be bogus.
Then The New York Times came out with new allegations of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh. The previous ones had been pretty dubious, at least in my opinion. But here was another. Then The New York Times played off its own story saying "Calls for Kavanaugh's Impeachment Come Amid New Misconduct Allegations."
Only one small problem. They had to post a infinitesimally small correction to the story...
The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.
So the woman who was the victim of this horrible attack doesn't even remember it? Right....
Now we have this whole new "impeachable offense." #Impeachment and #ImpeachTrump and #PresidentPelosi trended on Twitter for the umpteenth thousandth time. Apparently Trump made promises of military aid to Ukraine if they would investigate Joe Biden (for behavior that seems pretty obviously to be corrupt and illegal by the way).
But then the transcript of the call was released and there was no quid pro quo in it.
But Trump asked a foreign leader to investigate his rival! That is still corrupt!
Well, three Senate Democrats actually asked Ukraine to do the same thing to Donald Trump in 2018! What's good for the goose is apparently not good for the gander.
Can we just stop with this endless impeachment talk? Whether you hate Trump or not, the 2020 election is right around the corner. We can decide then whether he should stay.
P.S. If you're going to impeach a President, do it over illegal wars or supporting illegal wars (*cough* Yemen *cough*) or illegal spying or something that is actually important. Thanks.
