Democrats just found out the game is up.
The truth behind their impeachment witch hunt is out in public.
And Trey Gowdy sent Democrats running for their lives with one rude awakening.
Democrats face a zero percent chance of winning conviction on articles of impeachment and removing President Trump from office.
That is leading many Americans to wonder why Democrats are tearing the country apart with an exercise doomed to fail.
Trey Gowdy explained exactly why in a recent op-ed on Foxnews.com.
The former South Carolina Congressman explained Democrats were using impeachment as a wedge issue to win back the Senate in 2020.
This impeachment exercise is most assuredly about removing someone from office. It’s just not about removing Trump from office. It’s about removing Cory Gardner, Martha McSally, Thom Tillis, Susan Collins and Joni Ernst from their senate offices.
A Democratic Senate would make the assemblage of a Cabinet next to impossible, end the filling of judicial vacancies, paralyze the country should there be a U.S. Supreme Court opening and ensure that both the House and Senate spend their time investigating the executive branch.
If you think the country made little to no legislative progress with a Democrat-controlled House and a Republican president, just wait until there is a Democrat-controlled House and Senate and a Republican president.
There are currently 53 Republican Senators with 45 Democrats and 2 independents. The 2 independents caucus and vote with the Democrats for a practical split of 53-47. Democrats need to flip four Republican seats (and more likely 5) if Republicans nominate an electable candidate in Alabama.
Democrats need to win four seats to flip the Senate.
Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are wagering that if swing state Senators vote with Trump on impeachment it will alienate the independent voters they need to win re-election.
But that bet ignores swing state polling which shows impeaching and removing Donald Trump is unpopular.
