The Democrats’ impeachment failed to hurt Donald Trump the way they hoped.
But they’re hoping this new scheme will work out better for them.
Nancy Pelosi is readying a new scheme to keep Donald Trump under attack.
Traditionally, the House conducts an investigation before impeaching the president.
However, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decided that there was no need for an investigation and rushed to impeach Donald Trump.
It was clear from the beginning that Democrats wouldn’t be able to get enough Republicans onboard to actually convict President Trump.
But convicting Trump was never the point.
The Democrats want to keep Trump as an ever-present threat to America who they can use as justification for their radical policies.
In a letter released on Monday, Pelosi called for a 9/11-style commission to investigate the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
She started the letter by praising George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and stating that they both fought to keep America from being divided.
“Our country was blessed with the great patriotism of these presidents. And now we are grateful for the great patriotism of our Impeachment Managers, who under the leadership of Congressman Jamie Raskin, did an excellent job defending our democracy and honoring our Constitution,” Pelosi said, ignoring the fact that the Constitution doesn’t allow former presidents to be impeached.
“It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened. To protect our security, our security, our security, our next step will be to establish an outside, independent 9/11-type Commission to ‘investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex… and relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power, including facts and causes relating to the preparedness and response of the United States Capitol Police and other Federal, State, and local law enforcement in the National Capitol Region.’”
If investigating the attack on January 6th was so important, why did Pelosi wait over a month to start the investigation?
Clearly, the police at the Capitol were understaffed and should have been more adequately prepared.
The American people do deserve to know why the Capitol had such limited security; however, this investigation probably isn’t trying to figure out logical steps to make sure that the Capitol has better security in the future.
The investigation that Pelosi is calling for is clearly politically motivated.
No new information came out during the impeachment against Trump.
The Democrats didn’t even attempt to make a solid impeachment case against Trump, they just showed emotionally charged material in order to stir up emotions.
They want to pretend that Trump is an ever-present threat to American democracy to keep Americans’ attention off of the radical policies they are pushing.
