Impeachment – Democrats, Can We Say, Hypocrites?
We have heard from the Democrats that impeachment was their sad duty, they only wanted to do what was best for the nation, they, and they alone were going to fix what was wrong with this nation, but have they always felt this way?
On Dec. 18, 1998, when the House of Representatives was debating whether to impeach President Bill Clinton for perjury and obstruction of justice, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) declared on the House floor that the impeachment was “a punishment searching for a crime that does not exist” and was happening “because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton.”
“I urge my colleagues to vote no, stop this hatchet job on the presidency,” Pelosi said then. “Stop this hypocrisy. Stop this hatred. Vote no on all four counts.”
But Pelosi was not the only one that stood up on her high podium and lectured the GOP on how terrible a partisan impeachment was, here is the next DNC actor that was so prevalent in the whole process.
Both parties must support impeachment, Nadler said in 1998, or else it would divide the country too much.
“There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other,” he said then.
“Such an impeachment would lack legitimacy, would produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions,” he added.
It is rather interesting how the tune has changed with our Democrat leaders, where you have Schumer speaking out against the impeachment:
“It has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a President — not because of a popular groundswell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he’s committed — but because conditions in late 20th century America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate Bill Clinton and hate his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeed in undoing him.”
Schumer also called Republicans Trent Lott and Tom Daschle responsible, ultimately, for instigating a “bitter” and “acrimonious” impeachment inquiry. Wow, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black.
“It seems we have lost the ability to forcefully advocate for our position without trying to criminalize or at least dishonor our adversaries — often over matters having nothing to do with the public trust. And it is hurting the country; it is marginalizing and polarizing the Congress,” Schumer says. “[I]f the cycle of political recrimination and scandalizing continues, the American people will become more alienated and cynical and shaken by the political process and they, too, will lose faith in the great instrument the Founding Fathers have given us.”
But there is more here, we hear Schumer calling for witnesses in the impeachment with Trump, but what did he say in the Clinton Impeachment?
For people that say Trump supported the Clinton impeachment, this is what he had to say about it then:
The left, who are so quick to accuse the GOP of double standards or cannot stand on the moral high ground, you see them changing what they are outraged faster then my ex could change her mind.
We see on full display the desperation the left has found themselves in, as they have gone down this road to impeachment, they have found to their dismay that as they tried to destroy Trump polling has shown support for him has risen, just the opposite of what they were working for.
