“Every day that goes by is a day of 'Alice in Wonderland' administration."


A Democratic congressman has proposed one article of impeachment that he hopes will begin the process of removing President Donald Trump from office.

“Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government,” read the resolution proposed by Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif.

Sherman said he understood that Trump’s removal would not give the Democrats the White House.

“The purpose of this article is not to deprive the Republicans of their election victory,” said Sherman, noting that if Trump were removed, Vice President Mike Pence would take office. “In fact, from a purely partisan standpoint, it would install someone who would competently pursue a truly regressive progressive.”

However, he said, the nation is being poorly led.

“Every day that goes by is a day of Alice in Wonderland administration,” he said.

The proposal drew a swift rebuke from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc.

“Frustrated opponents of the president are grasping at straws and factitious rumors to advance their own political agenda rather than the interests of the country,” Sensenbrenner said.

“There is no proof of wrongdoing on the part of the president, which means discussions of impeachment are not only premature, but imprudent and counterproductive,” he said.

Only a few Democrats are actively calling for Trump’s impeachment. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, last week said he was also drafting articles of impeachment against Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has said for months Trump should be impeached, but has not said she is drafting any articles against him.

Sherman based his articles of impeachment on the claim that Trump tried to stop the FBI’s investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and that he fired FBI Director James Comey for not halting the FBI’s investigation of alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 elections.

Although efforts to impeach Trump can move forward only if a majority of House members support impeachment, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that that blocks impeachment only as long as the House remains in Republican hands.

“Republicans in general — not just Trump — are in a crossroads,” Gingrich said recently. “And if they don’t get their act together, (Minority Leader Nancy) Pelosi is going to become speaker and she’s going to impeach Trump. That’s how big the stakes are.”

“You think the hard left would do anything less?” he added. As speaker, Gingrich led the effort to impeach former President Bill Clinton.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
