Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 12, 2017

"Were not even focusing on it right now," said a senior staffer at the Democratic National Committee. "It's wasted breath -- I don't think the American population realizes how difficult it is to successfully impeach a president. I don't think that's possible right now." The DNC has refrained from mentioning the impeachment process and has not officially used the word. In the only statement issued by Chairman Tom Perez regarding Tuesday's news, Perez acknowledged the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to the Justice Department, but stopped far short of saying charges should be brought against Trump.

The reason for the DNC's silence is multifaceted, according to the DNC source. The decision largely hinges on the fact that members believe there's not enough evidence to push forward an impeachment hearing. And the fact that Republicans control the House makes the goal at this point largely a "pipe dream."

The party is aware that calling for impeachment too early will be the equivalent of crying wolf, and it's also something Republicans could benefit from politically.

Steele is talking now due to liable lawsuites being filed against his novel and it won't end well for democrats.

They will try to distance themselves and through Steele under the bus.

Yap.

There is now a video of him with the Russian attorney who he says he had nothing to do with.

His agenda is at a stand still. He has been neutered.

Why impeach a eunuch??

LOL

Agreed, and there is no way that Trumpelstiltskin gets impeached before the 2018 Midterms, if at all during his only term.

Or they've realized the smart move is to let the fish run some line out now that it's swallowed the entire hook and bait.

Is there a need to impeach if he can be indicted?

And if he can't be indicted but all his people can then can you imagine a bigger millstone around the GOP's neck? They'll have to remove him themselves and the Dems won't even have to worry about the political fallout from the terminally stupid who remain Trump supporters.

No.

Let him be. It's too rich.

They control the 3 branches of government and can barely rename post offices and highways.

LOL

Dem establishment shies away from Trump impeachment talk

This is wise. Impeachment is a political remedy, not a legal one. If they blow their wad way too soon and file papers for impeachment it will blow up in their faces.

Much as it pains me to say so, yes, this is too soon. Wait for all the evidence/info to be found and assembled, then act. Come for the King, better not miss.

This is plain commonsense. I said something similar in #8.
