Newly emboldened Democrats, who have just taken over the majority of the House of Representatives, are beginning to puff out their chests as talks of impeaching President Donald Trump heat up. There are several problems with this idea.

First, President Trump has been charged of nothing. There has been zero evidence presented of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” But that doesn’t matter to Democrats. They’ll label someone guilty just because they don’t like him. (Need I remind everybody of the “presumption of guilt” of Justice Brett Kavanaugh?)

Impeaching Trump has been a wild goose chase for the Democrats simply because they don’t like his demeanor or his policies. But we can’t keep trying to brand people guilty without evidence or it will lead to some serious consequences down the road. Plus, we can’t try to kick someone out of office because we disagree with his policies. That’s what elections are for.

Second, even if the House successfully votes to impeach President Trump, no further action will be taken. The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and there are not 67 Senators who will vote to do so.

Essentially, what these impeachment proceedings would amount to, if they were to occur, is little more than a dog and pony show and a giant waste of America’s time and money.

The Democrats have been hellbent on impeaching, impeding, reversing or otherwise obstructing President Trump and his policies since before he even took the oath of office. And they really haven’t offered any proof of the wild accusations they’ve been slinging from the get-go.
