Trump Impeachment Hearings 2.0: Déjà Vu All Over Again

May 22, 2020: Second House Impeachment Hearing of President Donald J. Trump

Capitol Hill

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler: “Indiscriminate Tweeting is clearly an impeachable offense under the Constitution. To be honest, this should not be a controversial statement. Trump thinks he can do anything. He is a dictator.”

Rep. Adam Schiff: “I heard—and I do not know this, but it sounds right—that President Trump threatened to eat the children or grandchildren of any Republican Senator that voted to convict him. Again, this is what I hear…I hope it isn’t true, but it shocked and repulsed me to my core that he would say such evil things. Ladies and gentlemen, sadly, that is who we are dealing with. If threatening to eat children and grandchildren—cannibalism!—isn’t grounds for impeachment, I don’t know what is. We must remove this kid-eating dictator! Also, if he is not removed from office, I believe he might give Texas back to Mexico. I encourage you all to 'Remember the Alamo!'”

(Sadly and bizarrely, this isn’t far off from how Democrats and their (as yet) unindicted co-conspirators in the mainstream media actually speak of the president. There is very little hyperbole here. Nadler really did call Trump a dictator on the Senate floor. Schiff really does--repeatedly-- make things up and traffic in hearsay…in an impeachment hearing. He really did speculate about Trump giving Alaska to the Russians. And the House really did impeach President Trump without accusing him of a crime.)
