With impeachment now temporarily out of sight and with the year coming to an end soon, it’s time to look forward at next year’s campaigns. The House Democrats’ impeachment farce has made them the laughingstock of swing district independent voters nationwide. When Speaker Pelosi enticed her freshmen to walk the plank vote to impeach President Trump, she enticed them to sign their political death warrant. This isn’t just about the 30 Democrats serving in Trump-won districts. It’s about Democrats serving in districts that Trump narrowly lost, too.

Somehow, Speaker Pelosi has morphed into a tragic figure, something Republicans didn’t think was possible. Still, that’s what happened when she trusted Adam Schiff’s and AOC’s political instincts more than her own political instincts. One side of her majority couldn’t wait to impeach President Trump. The other side of her majority wanted to legislate.

The bad news for Speaker Pelosi is that the 2 sides compromised and spent their time investigating, then impeaching President Trump. The worse news is that Chairmen Schiff and Nadler impeached President Trump without citing the high crime President Trump had committed. The public hearings in the House Intelligence Committee and the Judiciary Committee were a total disaster for Democrats.

Meanwhile, Democrats in the House Problem Solvers Caucus didn’t produce solutions to any of the pressing issues that need to be addressed. A Problem Solvers Caucus that doesn’t solve problems is essentially worthless. House Republicans will tell voters next fall that the way to get things done is through unified Republican government, with President Trump orchestrating the agenda from the Oval Office.

Republicans have President Trump to support. Further, Republicans have a positive, pro-growth agenda to support. The Democrats have don’t have a figure to rally around or a positive, pro-growth agenda to support. They have to defend Speaker Pelosi’s decision to withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate in an attempt to negotiate with Mitch McConnell.

Apolitical citizens can’t identify with Pelosi-style trickery. They think, rightly, that people who’ve been indicted (impeached) should get their day in court. In fact, the wise men that wrote the Constitution codified that principle into the Constitution. It’s part of the Constitution because they ratified the Sixth Amendment, which states this:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

This isn’t a request. It’s a requirement. Since Speaker Pelosi declared the impeachment inquiry into existence, she’s been talking about the solemnity of this process, the requirement that the Constitution be protected and the need to protect our democracy:

While the Democrats are split on whether they should have travelled down the impeachment path, they’re united in that they won’t avoid the voters’ wrath for ignoring We The People‘s agenda. Democrats will feel the people’s wrath for pursuing the Resistance’s agenda of unlimited investigations and repetitive impeachments:

That Democrats would promote this type of division is the source for the Democrats’ 2020 demise.
