The Swamp Is Getting Desperate: Ex-GOP Congressman No One Ever Heard of Calls for Trump's Impeachment

Every attempt the Democrats have made at toppling Trump, from Russian collusion to Stormygate, has not only backfired but exploded into dumpster fires with jail sentences looming in the near future for the perpetrators of the failed coup. It's fun to bet what The Swamp will try next. The creatures are at the end of their game plan when they trot out an old Republican, Tom Coleman (that no one has heard since 1993 when he got voted out of office in favor of a Democrat) to call for Trump's impeachment. Yeah, that'll work.

Partisan politics is what got us to this dangerous place — so dangerous, I believe, that the survival of our democracy is at risk.

Contemplate the possible behavioral problems of a Trump untethered from the law and who is frequently untethered from reality. Would we be surprised if he were to repeatedly brandish his get out of jail card while breaking, at will, democratic norms, presidential precedents and criminal statutes? Trump said early in his campaign that he “could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” Are we now at that point?

It's always fun when they start hallucinating. This guy actually thinks Trump is going to try and shoot someone! And what does he base this analysis on? The Muller "nothingburger" report. You know, the report that said there was no collusion and no obstruction...that one. "There is a trove of evidence in the Mueller report indicating Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses, including abuse of power and lying to the American public," exclaims Coleman in the Kansas City Star.

The trove is so vast and deep that constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz called any attempt to impeach Trump a "foolish abuse" of power. But at this point, the sentiments of Coleman are no different than any CNN anchor. But then it gets weird. Coleman turns his ranting onto Mike Pence, claiming that if the wet-dream fantasy of the left comes true, and Trump is somehow impeached and removed from office, that Vice President Pence should not be allowed to lawfully take his place. No, really.

To hand the presidency to an illegitimate vice president would be to approve and reward the wrongdoing while the lingering stench of corruption would trail any Pence administration, guaranteeing an untenable presidency. If Trump is impeached, then Pence should not be allowed to become president. The vice president should resign or be impeached as well if for no other reason that he has been the chief enabler for this illegitimate president.

Someone refresh my memory. Is "chief enabler" mentioned in the 25th Amendment? Would it surprise you if I told you he also wants Nancy Pelosi to be president? This guy is the worst Republican known to man!

There is a serious mental health crisis in America. Ex-congresscritter Coleman appears to be suffering some kind of public mental break from reality. Someone needs to get this man some help. We are here for you, sir. No one is trying to hurt you. Just put the white coat on and everything will be fine.
