Democrat Majority Whip, Rep. Jim Clyburn (SC) said on Wednesday morning that impeachment to the Democrats is all about correcting their defeat in the 2016 elections.
President Trump precisely said this on Tuesday in his blistering letter to Pelosi and the Democrats.
“Your chosen candidate lost the election in 2016, in an Electoral College landslide (306-227), and you and your party have never recovered from this defeat,” Trump wrote accusing Pelosi of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
Rep. Clyburn, who appeared on MSNBC Wednesday morning and told “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough that Trump impeachment is all about revenge for him winning the 2016 election.
“Donald Trump’s campaign framed his presidency,” Clyburn said. “We just thought that once in office, he would rise to the office. Instead, he got into office, he tried to pull the presidency down to him and that to me is what this is all about.”
Clyburn admitted Trump didn’t commit any crimes and that the Democrats are impeaching him because he won the 2016 election and defeated Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats also have no one to beat Trump in 2020 so impeachment is not only revenge for him beating Hillary, it’s also about trying to prevent Trump from winning a second term. Democrats are set to impeach President Donald Trump today based on lies and non-crimes.
America is being severely injured by the betrayal, by this unjust and weaponized impeachment brought upon us by the same Socialists who threaten unborn life in the womb. Who threaten First Amendment rights of conservatives, who threaten Second Amendment protections of every American patriot, and who long ago determined that they would organize and conspire to overthrow President Trump. We don’t face this horror because these Democrats have all of the sudden become constitutionalists! We’re not being devoured from within because of surreal assertion of the Socialists new found love for the very flag they tread upon! They fear the true will of ‘We the People.’ They are deep establishment DC. They fear, they call this Republican map “flyover country.” They call us deplorables. They fear our faith. They fear our strength. They fear our unity. They fear our vote and the fear our president. We will NEVER surrender our nation to career establishment DC politicians!
