Trump Takes a Swing at Democrats Who Are Still Pushing for Impeachment After Mueller Report’s Release

After repeated calls from Democrats to start the impeachment process, President Trump spoke out about their claims on Sunday.

Trump reacted to multiple Democrats saying he needed to be impeached by seeming to point out one of the reasons why the Mueller investigation was started was because of Democrats.

“How do you impeach a Republican President for a crime that was committed by the Democrats?” said Trump. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

As IJR Blue previously reported, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) introduced an impeachment resolution due to the Mueller report reaching no conclusion on obstruction of justice.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly threw in her support of the resolution, saying that she believed it was the responsibility of Congress to make a determination.

“Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. As such, I’ll be signing onto Rashida Tlaib’s impeachment resolution.”

Some Democratic lawmakers also went on Sunday talk shows to speak out about their disapproval of the president and their willingness to move forward with impeachment. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who has pushed the collusion narrative multiple times, is now moving to obstruction of justice.

“Impeachment is likely to be unsuccessful,” said Schiff to ABC’s “This Week,” but adding, “It may be that we undertake an impeachment nonetheless.”

Watch his comments below:

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) also responded to questions during a Sunday interview on “Meet The Press.”

“Yeah, I do… obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable,” said Nadler, who is House Judiciary Committee chairman.

Watch:

Although others, like Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), recognize that the impeachment resolution will most likely be stopped by the Senate, he claimed that “history would smile upon us for standing up for the Constitution.”

Watch:

Democratic party leaders House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have cautioned against pushing impeachment so close to the 2020 election, and as IJR Blue reported, Pelosi has said it “is not worth it.”

However, it seems like some are breaking from leadership and are eager to push the impeachment process forward.

Once again, the Democrats want to shoot themselves in the foot, this close to the 2020 election season, I say let them go ahead, and the American electorate with remember it when we go to cast a ballot! As a result, I would predict the result would be an increase in the Senate, Republican takeover of the House, and Trump being re-elected!

History is never going to smile on the Democrat party looking back at 2016 to now. America could be enjoying one of the most industrious, independent, unified times in our history. Instead we have daily projectile vomit from the media and the Democrats trying to tear society further and further apart. Why the picture of AOC once again? She’s quickly becoming the Kardashian of Congress – enough already, go away! I guess the good news is that Americans are sick of it. Thanks Dems for Trump 2020!

“Mueller’s team couldn’t rule out that Trump committed criminal obstruction.”

Of course they could. They just didn’t want to do so. If there was criminal obstruction, who would have been obstructed? Mueller’s team! Did they anywhere indicate they were obstructed from completing their task? Absolutely not!

The bias and conflicts of interest within the Mueller team are well chronicled.
