The establishment media keeps telling Americans that the issue of “healthcare” was what led to the Democrats to retake the House during the 2018 midterms, but that narrative defies facts: Without question, Left-wing Democrats’ rallying cry was “Impeach President Trump!”

Democrats wrapped fundraising campaigns around that theme. Rep. Maxine Waters of California echoed it constantly like a parrot at her events. And who could forget freshman Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s declaration at a post-swearing-in party, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf**ker!

Well, what a difference a few months — and several additional points in a presidential approval rating — can make.

Now that the president has been cleared officially of “Russian collusion” and “obstruction of justice,” Democrats have nothing at all to take to the American people that would justify removing the president from office.

The only thing he’s done wrong was to win an election; the only misdeed he committed was defeating the most criminally investigated and corrupt Democratic presidential nominee ever, Hillary Clinton.

And apparently, some sober-thinking Democratic leaders are coming around to the realization that a president cleared of wrongdoing after being hamstrung for two years with a bogus investigation — who now has a 50-plus percent approval rating — isn’t going anywhere.

As the wild-eyed Leftist element of the Democratic Party continues to scream “impeachment!” —

But for these lunatics, there are still enough ‘old guard’ Democrats in positions of power to toss a lake’s worth of cold water on an impeachment plan that would do nothing but ensure POTUS Trump’s reelection in 2020.

Enter Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the House Majority Leader.

He said Thursday that nothing he saw in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report would make seeking to impeach President Trump a “worthwhile” effort “at this point.”

Hoyer made his remarks to the Crazed News Network’s Dana Bash following the Justice Department’s release of Mueller’s partially redacted findings in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer told CNN. “Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgment.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also blew off her radical Leftist faction earlier this week. She acknowledged that Americans are far more interested in “kitchen table issues” than whatever was in the Mueller report.

But of course, there is much more to the lunacy Left faction than just a few House freshmen:

There were other ‘dissenters,’ but none of them has to stand for election/reelection next year. So it’s easy for them to be ‘brave.’ Trump Derangement Syndrome is real and it is spreading.

Still, Pelosi, Hoyer, and the Democrat old guard know instinctively that most Americans have either dismissed any suggestion their president is a Russian stooge or never cared enough about the allegations to pay much attention.

We have no faith that Democratic leaders are simply trying to ‘do the right thing’ any more than we believe they actually care about ‘kitchen table issues.’ They simply know that removing Trump from office just isn’t going to happen — and anyway, tens of millions of Americans wouldn’t stand for it.

Perhaps someday these fiesty Leftist freshmen will learn that activism isn’t political leadership, but we’re not hopeful.
