President Trump hadn’t even been acquitted by the U.S. Senate when talk started about the next impeachment effort.
And it was no surprise coming from Democrats in both houses of Congress.
But Donald Trump is now facing new impeachment attempts from this unlikely source as well.
The effort by Democrats and some Never-Trump RINOs to remove President Trump started before he was even elected.
And it has continued non-stop since he won the presidency in 2016. So it really didn’t come as much of a surprise when Democrats started talking about new impeachment attempts.
It turns out they are terrified that he is going to win a second term and continue to root out the corrupt Deep State operatives planted throughout the government.
That’s why many political observers were prepared for the latest attacks and threats.
But what caught many off-guard was that the husband of Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway would be leading the charge.
So-called “Republican” lawyer George Conway is well known as an opponent of the President, despite his wife’s position in the Trump administration.
But now Conway, not happy with the Senate’s vote to acquit the President, believes President Trump “might” need to be impeached again.
This time, he is calling for impeachment because Trump rightly and finally removed two impeachment witnesses against him from their positions at the White House.
You would think that a U.S. President would have the right, and even the duty, to remove any employees from under his command once they show their disloyalty.
This is especially true when that employee is also a member of the U.S. Armed Forces.
After all, what boss anywhere in America wants a staff of disloyal backstabbers?
But of course, that’s not how the Democrats, and apparently Mr. Conway view it.
In an op-ed published in The Washington Post, Conway — a vocal member of the Never-Trump gang of grifters and inside the beltway political operatives — suggested Trump seemed to be “competing” for the “ignominious fate” of a second impeachment attempt.
Of course, Mr. Conway, as is typical of his crowd, ignored a number of facts in his article.
First, President Trump has already faced more than one attempt. Early in his presidency one attempt to impeach him was voted down by the House.
Also, the President has the right to shuffle employees as he sees fit.
But those facts didn’t stop Conway from attacking the President after he removed Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from their posts.
What really seemed to upset Conway was the Tweet from the President, which said that Vindman was “insubordinate” and “reported contents of my ‘perfect’ calls incorrectly.”
Conway mistakenly claimed the President’s Tweet shows he removed Vindman from the NSC in retaliation for his testimony in the House’s impeachment inquiry.
Conway then argued that if President Trump was impeached by the House for obstruction of Congress “then there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.”
He then said that “we might, indeed, have to” impeach Trump again.
This follows closely on the heels of House Democrats saying that if the Senate acquitted Trump they would begin a second impeachment inquiry.
And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has also claimed the removal of Vindman, his twin brother, and as many as 70 NSC and other staff from the White House was a retaliation and thus could be considered witness tampering.
The question is, witness tampering for what? The “trial” is over and the President was acquitted.
And there is the fact that Trump’s National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien had been planning on cutting NSC staff “to bring it back to a size that’s manageable and efficient” before any of these moves were made.
As Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on Twitter, Vindman “was not ‘fired’ he’s still an Army officer.”
The real question is why it took so long. And why Vindman is not facing a court martial for his actions.
