Former Dem Mayor Drops The Hammer On Dems Who Think Senate Republicans Will Impeach Trump

In an op-ed released on Saturday, former Democratic mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown shredded House Democrats, saying that "no one" actually thinks 20 Republican Senators will turn on President Donald Trump and vote to impeach him.
The op-ed was written in the San Francisco Chronicle and highlighted how congressional Democrats have put their legislative agenda to the side to fully pursue the impeachment of President Trump.
“If the goal was to damage President Trump by formalizing the impeachment inquiry, it’s Mission Unaccomplished for House Democrats,” Brown wrote.
The former San Francisco mayor continued by mentioning how no House Republicans voted in favor for the formalization of the impeachment inquiry and how even two Democrats voted against it.
He went on to say how “no one” thinks 20 Senate Republicans will vote to impeach President Trump. For the President to be successfully impeached, the Senate would need 2/3 votes which means 20 Republicans would have to vote to impeach President Trump along with every Democratic Senator.
VOTE NOW: Do you OPPOSE or SUPPORT impeachment?
“And when it gets to the Senate, it will play out just the same way,” Brown wrote. “Someone like Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah may break GOP ranks, but no one thinks 20 Republicans, the bare minimum who would have to defect to convict Trump, would actually do so.”
“So the Democrats will spend the next few precious months acting out a pretend cliffhanger to which everyone actually knows the script and the ending,” he added.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
Brown then chastised Democrats for ignoring their core issue, health care, which gave Democrats and Pelosi the House majority in the 2018 midterm election. In contrast, Brown said that Trump will have survived impeachment and have a great economy, to which Democrats have achieved little to nothing.
The former San Francisco mayor asked rhetorically, “Remember health care, the issue that won so many elections for Democrats in 2018? You might, but they don’t seem to.”
“Come next year, Trump will have an impeachment victory and quite possibly a solid economy,” Brown concluded. “The Democrats will have — what?”
Brown is right. The Democrats impeachment agenda is doing way more harm to them than it is to President Trump.
On Friday morning, President Donald Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale revealed just how much money President Trump's campaign was able to pull in after the Democrat controlled House of Representatives voted in favor of setting the grounds for the impeachment inquiry into the President.
"Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution day turned into a MASSIVE fundraising day for @realDonaldTrump," Parscale said. He then revealed that the campaign was able to raise $3 million in one day which brought their total online donations for October to $19 million.
To successfully impeach a president, you almost always need bipartisan support. Unfortunately for the House Democrats, this is not the case.
No Republicans voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry and even two Democrats broke from their party and voted against the bogus inquiry. Those two Democrats were U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew of South Jersey and Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota.
Van Drew released a statement shortly after the vote, saying that the inquiry would "further divide the country."
"However, now that the vote has taken place and we are moving forward I will be making a judgment call based on all the evidence presented by these investigations," he said. "My hope is that we are still able to get some work done to help the American people like infrastructure, veteran’s benefits, environmental protections, immigration reform, reducing prescription drug cost, and strengthening Social Security.”
