An attempt by former Democrat National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to moderate the left’s zealous debate on President Donald Trump’s actions was met with mass outrage on Twitter this week.
While speaking Wednesday on CNN, Schultz implored that it was not yet time to speak about potentially impeaching the president.
“I think you don’t call for impeachment until you have an independent, bipartisan investigation and you can get to the bottom of the possibility of high crimes and misdemeanors being committed,” she said.
This notion of possibly impeaching Trump came from uncorroborated “evidence” from the media that he and his team had colluded with the Russians during and after the 2016 presidential election.
Wasserman Schultz was adamant in her belief that a thorough investigation needed to be conducted first before talks of impeachment were even broached.
The reaction from her fellow leftists on Twitter was not positive, to say the least.
The core contention of Schultz’s critics was that her disgraceful past — it was learned in the summer of 2016 that she had colluded to sabotage the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, D.Vt. — made her and her beliefs irrelevant.
The anger toward Wasserman Schultz was strong, with many liberals raking her over the coals for refusing to jump on the Trump impeachment bandwagon.
One lone Twitter user did defend Schultz, writing, “She’s right.” However, she also added that Schultz still makes her “sick to my stomach.”
