(TNS) Democrats are trying to make the case to the American people that, hey, they neverÂ really wanted to impeach President Trump but because of his awful abuses of power regarding Ukraine and stuff, well, he just didn’t leave them any choice.
However…we know that’s not true.

Democrats have been plotting the president’s demise, robbing Americans of a duly-elected commander-in-chief, since the Â night he beat the most criminally investigated presidential nominee in the history of the republic, Hillary Clinton.
And certainly, as The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reminded the country in a tweet on Tuesday, since taking over the House last year.
Hemingway tweeted out a column she wrote after the 2018 midterms, which saw the Garbage Party regain control of the people’s House.
Boy, if elections ever had consequences…

From the column:
Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia.
In post-election chats with various callers while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected representative and discussed potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with another. He also lamented identity politics and the thriving economy and worried about Democrats losing working-class voters while gaining elite former Republicans and suburban women.
Nadler was headed to DC for a two-day planning session with his staff and Judiciary Committee staff. â€œWeâ€™ve got to figure out what weâ€™re doing,â€ he explained in a phone call with a friend. Nadler requested that the friendâ€™s name be concealed on the grounds he is a private citizen.
The two discussed two routes for investigating new Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. The first is to go after the FBI for how they handled the investigation into unsubstantiated claims he sexually assaulted women. â€œThey didnâ€™t even do a half-ass job,â€ he said. â€œThey didnâ€™t interview 30 witnesses who said â€˜Interview me! Iâ€™ve got a lot to say!’â€ he said, while mimicking people waving their hands to be called on.
His other plan is to go after Kavanaugh because â€œthereâ€™s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury.â€ He claimed that The Atlantic published an article about the allegations of a third woman. Then he claimed that when Kavanaugh was â€œasked at a committee hearing under oath when he first heard of the subject, he said, â€˜When Iâ€™d heard of the Atlantic article.â€™ But there is an email chain apparently dating from well before that from him about â€˜How can we deal with this?’â€ Nadler told the caller.
Nadler was apparently discussing a slightly different claim, sinceÂ debunked, which is that Kavanaugh perjured himself when he denied hearing of The New Yorkerâ€™s disputed allegation involving Deborah Ramirez until the story came out.
Nadler said Russia investigations would be under a broad umbrella of holding Trump â€œaccountable,â€ since itâ€™s a more palatable argument than impeachment, that they would be going â€œall-in,â€ and much of what they get to would be â€œdepending on what [special counsel Robert] Mueller finds.â€ Still, he said the Judiciary Committee would only be in a supportive role to Rep. Adam Schiff and the Intelligence Committee, which has â€œa way ahead start on that.â€ Still, he said Judiciary â€œwill have a roleâ€ in the Russia investigations.
Well, Mueller’s ‘finding’ that there was no “Trump-Russia collusion” (because it was a fabrication from the outset) put a damper inÂ that angle of attack.
