Time for the Senate to end Democrat impeachment nightmare

Jan. 31, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging to Senate to acquit President Donald Trump of all charges:

“The Senate should end Adam Schiff’s partisan impeachment fantasy tonight.  The Democrat majority in the House of Representatives has embarrassed themselves and have been exposed for their craven effort to politically weaponize the once somber impeachment process.

“For those still clinging to the idea that if the House Democrats can just call more witnesses on the Senate floor that somehow they will stumble upon something resembling an impeachable offense, you will have your chances in November of 2020 to make your voice heard.  But please know that the House impeachment was never about convicting Donald Trump, instead it was nothing more than a chance for coastal politicians to preen in front of cameras and raise money to fund their future political ambitions.  The House impeachment was nothing more than Kabuki Theatre on a national stage with fundraising appeals accompanying every manufactured highlight.

“It is truly sad that the House’s political ambitions were put ahead of our national interest, but in some ways it was good for America to witness the lengths Democrats will go to win power as we head into the 2020 election.

“Crowds of more than 100,000 in Wildwood, New Jersey and 150,000 ticket requests along with a standing room only crowd in Des Moines, Iowa with people outside the venue watching in sub-freezing weather, turned the Democrats hope to mobilize their base and demoralize the President’s through impeachment on its head.  The surprising part is that the crowds are not just GOP faithful, the New Jersey crowd had a significant number of south Jersey Democrats with the President making an appeal for them to join former Democrat and current Republican Congressman Jeff Van Drew in switching political parties. Additionally, while polling is generally untrustworthy when it comes to Trump, the President’s national head to head numbers have gotten significantly better since the beginning of this impeachment play.

“Tonight, if the Democrats and the nation gets lucky, the Senate will vote down a long-drawn out process for additional witnesses, and will vote to acquit, freeing Amy Klobacher, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren to chase around Iowa for a few days before the Caucus on Monday, February 3rd and New Hampshire eight days later.

“It is time to end impeachment today, and let the Senate get back to confirming judges who will make an impact for a generation.”
