“In point of fact, the House has no impeachment inquiry; congressional Democrats have an impeachment political campaign,” argues National Review’s Andrew McCarthy. And so long as impeachment remains nothing more than the Democrats’ second attempt at a coup — a narrative meant solely to boost their election prospects in 2020 — it will plainly be political theater at its cheapest and most craven.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sees it for what it is, and the upper chamber of Congress, which will try President Donald Trump if and when the House ever gets around to impeaching him, will prove to be the sane chamber. In a campaign video, McConnell says that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “in the clutches of a left-wing mob that finally convinced her to impeach the president.” However, he adds. “The way that impeachment stops is with a Senate majority with me as majority leader.”
McConnell must firmly believe that there is not enough evidence to oust Trump or he wouldn’t assert this far in advance that the Senate will kill the effort. He’s also clearly hanging this political charade around Democrat necks.
