President Trump just received fantastic news. Congress is completely stunned — Democrats are watching their plan fall apart before their very eyes.
Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said that the Democrats are pursuing an “impeachment by reflex,” which is “impeachment in lieu of an actual agenda for the American people.” It is also a glaring double-standard.
“The president’s lawyers will do their job if they can show that the Democrats are trying to establish a standard of conduct that they themselves cannot live by,” said Gaetz. Without a doubt, Democrats are being hypocrites.
Whereas Trump encouraged supporters to protest “peacefully and patriotically,” liberal politicians have used violent, combative language to stoke the riots over the summer. The truth cannot be avoided.
Gaetz noted that Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) said that “as long as there’s unrest in our lives, there’ll be unrest in the streets.” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for openly harassing Trump officials in public.
Many more examples exist. Aside from the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy, we are seeing “a dangerous expansion of the impeachment tool” to silence political speech. Democrats are setting a horrible precedent.
