Despite impeachment being dead on arrival in the Senate where the GOP still has a majority, Dems are hellbent at risking blowback at the ballot box from moderates and swing voters who are appalled and horrified at how badly that the process has degenerated in such a short period of time.
But what if impeachment is the only hope that Democrats have of regaining total power? After all, they don’t have to beat Trump fair and square if they are able to rig the game against him.
Unhinged Congressman Al Green may have just let the cat out of the bag when during an appearance on MSNBC, he stated that Trump is going to cruise to reelection if the Democrats don’t get about with their impeachment inquisition.

Transcript excerpt via Grabien:
“I’m concerned if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected. If we don’t impeach him, he will say he’s been vindicated. He will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the house and didn’t take up impeachment. He will say we H constitutional duty and he will say he’s been vindicated. Here’s what I say, we’re confronting a constitutional crisis as I speak to you. As I look the people of America in the eye, I’m telling you, we have a constitutional crisis.
The chief executive office of the president of the United States refuses to comply with subpoenas and says he will order others to do so, this creates a constitutional crisis but this isn’t the genesis of it. It started when the president decided to fire Mr. Comey for his fair failure — pardon me, as a result of his desire not to be investigated. When he decided to do this and went on national TV at primetime and indicated he was thinking about this Russia thing, that was the genesis of it. We have a constitutional crisis. I regret I’m the canary in the coal mine.
Let the Senate do what they may. We have to do what they must. This is not a game. This is not about who’s going to do well in the polls. The polls will catch up with justice when we show people we have the backbone, the spine to do what this constitution demands when we have an unfit, reckless, ruthless, lawless president in the White House. We say that. We talk about it. You will hear Democrats talking about how he’s unfit to be president, how he is doing things that are unconscionable and unconstitutional. The question is this, will we go beyond these things being talking points and make them an action item? Will we take them to the floor of the one place in the world where the president can be brought to the bar of justice? That’s the house of representatives.
Trump couldn’t resist chiming in:
“Democrat Texas Congressman Al Green says impeachment is the only thing that can prevent President Trump from re-election in 2020.” @OANN In other words, Dems can’t win the election fairly. You can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy in our country’s history…..

Rep. Green who has led the lynch mob comprised of other members of the Congressional Black Caucus has more against Trump than whatever loony conspiracy theories that the left has ginned up and some might suggest that it is based in his own bigotry.

Like the rest of the CBC, the media pays no attention to the cordial relationship that loose cannons like Rep. Green have enjoyed with virulent racist hatemonger Louis Farrakhan, a hardcore anti-Semite who has praised Hitler and compared Jews to termites.
Here’s Green with the Nation Of Islam leader and he’s hardly the only one to have embraced such a loathsome character.
If Al Green (not the singer) really gave a damn about bigotry he wouldn't be hugging Louis Farrakhan all over. pic.twitter.com/nwVOjkHg07

And another impeachment fanatic is lovin’ her some Farrakhan as well:

Impeachment is as much a tool in the Democrats’ box as eliminating the Electoral College, keeping Trump off the ballot in multiple Dem-controlled states and promoting the hoax that Russia is going to help Trump steal the election in 2020 as well.
It is nothing less than an attack on Democracy.
The only way that this nightmare will end is when voters in districts controlled by charlatans like Al Green go into the voting booth and pull the flush chain but don’t hold your breath waiting for it to happen.
