Since the election of Donald Trump, the Democrats’ number one goal has been to take him down.
They have been constantly scheming to find a way to impeach him.
And they just found their latest plan to impeach him and revealed it on national television.
Attempts to impeach Trump have not gone well for Democrats.
They were hoping they could find wrongdoings by the president through Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation.
But so far they have found nothing linking the president or his campaign to any collusion with Russia.
That is why they have been forced to try to find other reasons to impeach him.
Democrat Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon dropped their latest plan while speaking on CNN Monday.
He believes that if Trump removes the security clearances of Obama-era intelligence and national security officials that they would be able to impeach him.
Wyden felt that doing so is creating an “enemies list,” and then using taxpayer resources to go after them.
First of all, it is surprising that a Democrat is worried about misusing taxpayer funding.
Second of all, revoking security clearances does not require any major expenses, so it is an interesting angle for Democrats to be taking.
If it has been Democrats calling for revoking security clearances of Trump officials, you can be sure that the entire anti-Trump left would be cheering on with excitement.
And that call would be entirely politically motivated.
In this case, it isn’t about politics as much as it’s about these officials being corrupt, and not to be trusted with security clearances.
Currently, the former officials Trump is considering going after are CIA Director John Brennan, former Direction of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden.
All of those officials had been embroiled in scandal during their time in office.
John Brennan specifically has been targeted, with Republican Sen. Rand Paul stating that he asked Trump to revoke his security clearance.
Brennan was involved in many scandals during his time in office, including lying to the American people about government spying.
Most recently Brennan found himself in the spotlight when he called Trump’s Russia press conference with Vladimir Putin treasonous.
That likely plays into it considering that a former top official, with a security clearance, is attempting to use his status to claim that the president committed treason.
Among the group of people targeted, James Comey and Andrew McCabe were also fired by President Trump.
Any reasonable person wouldn’t be surprised to hear that a president is revoking the security clearances of two people that he fired.
But in the minds of the left, this is a major scandal; but anything is a major scandal to them, so their opinions shouldn’t affect Trump much.
Even if they were to take this issue front and center in the media debate, it would almost certainly do nothing to harm Trump.
The media has tried to overplay everything Trump does, yet polling shows that they can’t touch him.
Do you think Trump should revoke the security clearances of Obama-era officials?
