The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives committed political suicide this week and passed both articles of impeachment — obstruction of Congress and abuse of power — against President Donald Trump on Wednesday night.
After months of sham hearings, partisan witnesses, and still no evidence the president did anything wrong, House Democrats just managed to waste millions of dollars in less than three months.
According to research from the Heritage Foundation, $3.06 million of taxpayers ’ money was spent by House Democrats in their efforts to remove the duly elected president of the United States.
Add up lawyers’ fees and the salaries of staff whose duties have been consumed by impeachment proceedings, and taxpayers are footing a hefty bill.
As the Daily Signal reports, the price tag could be even higher:
The total likely is a low estimate because it does not factor in overtime hours for U.S. Capitol Police when House hearings ran well into the late evening. The total also doesn’t include the cost of executive branch expenses, travel costs for witnesses, or supplies and materials.
As support for impeachment appears to be dropping, Democrats are going to have to prove to voters that they’re doing the right thing, and they need to do it before public opinion turns even further away, tanking Democrats’ chances in 2020.
Beyond Democrats abusing and wasting taxpayer dollars, their impeachment witch hunt is going so badly that even CNN is admitting Trump has “more than weathered the storm.”
Over the course of three months, Trump’s approval numbers increased and support for impeaching him from office decreased.
Trump was already going to be very tough to beat in 2020, but Democrats are doing their best to make him electorally stronger and practically unbeatable.
