Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 24, 2019

Former Rep. Tom Coleman (R-Mo.) has penned an op-ed calling for President Trump to be impeached. Coleman's Thursday op-ed in the Kansas City Star comes as calls for impeachment heat up from both Democratic lawmakers and at least one Republican, with Coleman amplifying Rep. Justin Amash's (R-Mich) comments from over the weekend. Coleman's reasoning echoes Amash's, arguing that special counsel Robert Mueller's report showed Trump and members of his campaign "on multiple occasions welcomed Russian interference on his behalf during the 2016 presidential campaign." The 75-year-old former lawmaker, who left the House in 1993 after more than 15 years in Congress, noted that there are "political reasons" against pushing for impeachment, but wrote that "politics should not rule the day." "Partisan politics is what got us to this dangerous place -- so dangerous, I believe, that the survival of our democracy is at risk," he wrote.

Yea, I remember there were several in the GOP that were confirmed "Never Trumpers". Trump had to fight his own party's establishment as well as the Democrats. He won.

"He won."

At some point you need to put on your big boy pants and stop thinking about this as a game with teams.

Since we have no practical answers to anything (due to being bribed) we should make political hay out of anything we can, even if it's all obvious lies.

Rep. Coleman: "Coleman also cautioned that should House Democrats choose not to proceed with impeachment proceedings, both the country and the future may not look fondly on the decision.

"I believe the public would conclude Democrats are no better than the Republicans who have enabled Trump for the past two years, putting party above country. It could hand Trump a second term. Failure to pursue impeachment is to condone wrongdoing. To condone wrongdoing is to encourage more of it," he warned."

DR Left: Yay, he's another hero

ROC: "The Dems are making a huge mistake here by not commencing impeachment proceedings because if they let Trump get away with obstruction, what is to stop him or some successor from doing something worse."

DR Left: You suck, what are you up to?

He LOST BIG in 2018. Your Orange Fuhrer himself said it was a referendum on his presidency (before the GOnP got their asses handed to them of course).

"Another Repug Calls For Orange Turd's Impeachment", "Repug"? Since he supports Trump impeachment doesn't that make him a "Venerated Republican Elder Statesman TM"?
