The same Democrats who decried the Bill Clinton impeachment as a product of GOP hatred and an illicit effort to nullify the results of a presidential election have become what they accused Republicans of being.
And I mean literally the same Democrats as those who issued endless jeremiads in defense of Clinton two decades ago: Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Jerry Nadler and then Sen. Joe Biden.
Rather than guaranteeing Trump’s removal from office, the combination of the Democrats’ hypocrisy-as-performance-art with their predilection for show-me-the-man-and-I’ll-show-you-the-crime Soviet justice has assured only that the result of the 2020 election will be seen as fraudulent by half the country.
If Trump wins, Democrats will contend he did so by rigging the election with aid of Eastern Bloc oligarchs.
If the Democrat wins, it will be seen by Trump loyalists and anti-Socialists as the byproduct of four years of inquisitions that would’ve made Torquemada blush.
For all their talk of protecting the integrity and legitimacy of the 2020 election, Democrats have gravely damaged both.
