It will also be the start of a victorious revolution that leads to a right-wing dictatorship.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: That is why I worry we are headed into dangerous and choppy Constitutional waters. We know what the Democrats want to do; get control of the House and on day one start impeachment.
I happen to think; as you know I opposed the Trump candidacy. I don’t think he is very well fit for the presidency. But fitness is not a reason for impeachment, and removal. High crimes are. Here we have a prosecutor looking for high crimes. With Watergate you started with a crime and tried to find out how it happened. Here they are looking for a crime… as of yet I haven’t heard of one. Collusion is unseemly but it isn’t a crime.
So you’ve got a political establishment, mostly Democratic, but there are some Republicans, who would like to see him taken out of office. That would be a catastrophic mistake. It would cause a rupture in the country, where people would say: ‘When we people, the ones who have been ‘abandoned’ elect sombody we like, our guy gets taken out. What happened, I thought we had a stable democracy?’
Again, I think he is unfit, but that is the grounds for removal.
TUCKER CARLSON: That would tell people we have a fake democracy — it is not real.
KRAUTHAMMER: If you think a man is unfit, you vote against him, you don’t remove him from office. And that is where I am afraid we are headed… There will be another election, there always is. I think this appearance he did in West Virginia tonight is a way of saying: My numbers may be down, but I command a formidable army.
