NeverTrumper Chris Wallace held an interview with Hakeem Jeffries on declining public support for impeachment and what that means for their impeachment agenda.
Many House leaders are scared of impeachment because if Democrats in districts won by Trump in 2016 vote for impeachment it could easily cost the Democrats their majority in the House.
Wallace kept pounding out that the public isn’t behind the impeachment inquiry and is in fact has suffered a decreased support, especially from the all important Independent voters who decide many elections.
Senate Democrats are equally scared. Any trial in the Senate could last months or at least one month.
The Senators running for president and vulnerable Senators like Doug Jones of Alabama and Gary Peters of Michigan as they will lose valuable campaigning time while their rivals are free to campaign all they want.
Jeffries kept insisting that they have the evidence (They don’t) and they have the support of the American people. (They don’t)
Wallace was unrelenting but Jeffries kept denying the obvious. Personally, I want them to vote for impeachment. They are only energizing more than 60 million people who voted for Trump in 2016.
And remember, trump has unprecedented support from minorities that usually vote a straight Democratic ticket.
The real reason that Democrats are pushing impeachment is because they realize they do not have a candidate that can beat Trump in the general election.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pressed Democratic New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries on declining public support for impeachment despite the House’s public hearings.
“There’s been an awful lot about investigating, impeaching, and removing the president since he took the oath of office,” Wallace told Jeffries during the congressman’s “Fox News Sunday” appearance.
But Wallace continued to press, pointing out that the needle hasn’t moved in their direction since the public hearings concluded.
“But congressman, Democrats have been making that case, you’ve been making your best case to the public for two months now,” said the Fox News anchor. “You just finished 30 hours of televised hearings, 12 witnesses, and the public apparently isn’t buying it at this point.”
