In a sit-down interview with Reuters on Tuesday, President Trump said he was not worried about Democrats attempting to impeach him over campaign finance violations. Insisting that the violations were not serious in the first place, Trump said that Democrats risked angering the American people with their efforts to throw him out of office.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump said. “I’m not concerned, no. I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”
In recent days, several leading Democrats have suggested that payments Trump directed Michael Cohen to make to Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels could be enough to end his presidency. In court filings, the Mueller team has identified these payments as unlawful campaign contributions. Pundits on the left have said that if Trump wasn’t president, he would likely be indicted under the same charges that Cohen now faces in federal court.
But the president says that’s all hogwash.
“Number one, it wasn’t a campaign contribution,” he told Reuters. “If it were, it’s only civil, and even if it’s only civil, there was no violation based on what we did, okay?
We can’t be sure if the president was being entirely serious when suggesting that the American people might “revolt,” but it’s certainly a serious possibility. The anger and frustration that led red-state America (with no small portion of former Obama voters in the Midwest) to go to the polls for Trump is still alive and pulsating.
This is the half of the country that is sick to death with political correctness, tired of Washington elites who won’t tell us the truth about radical Islam, fed up with the rampant lawlessness at the southern border, and outraged at the way our country has consistently put every other nation on Earth’s interests ahead of ours. Trump was the stop-gap solution to those problems, and he has done a damn fine job turning the ship around.
Is everything in America now perfect? Of course not. But we have briefly thrown a wrench into the globalist policies that have threatened the very existence of this Republic. And to now threaten to go back to the way things were? To threaten to remove this president for a “crime” that was committed – to the tune of millions of dollars – by his predecessor? It is nothing less than an act of war against the voting population.
We Americans – especially on the right – are lethargic about hitting the streets with political fury. But impeachment might just put us over the edge.
