Statements by Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) reinforce the perception that Democrats do not believe the American people should decide, at the polls, whether U.S. President Donald Trump remains in office for another term.
Escobar reinforced what was said by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff.
“If we wait for the courts, if we wait for an election to settle this, then we will have waited too long,” Escobar said to CNN Dec. 5, quoted by Western Journal.
“I am worried in general about 2020,” Escobar said, being even more explicit about her mood ahead of next year’s elections.
Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) also expressed his concern about the length of the impeachment that the Democrats are pushing against President Trump, which so far has shown no evidence of improper behavior on the part of the president.
“There is,” Schiff said, as CNN reported, “grave risk to the country with waiting until we have every last fact, when we already know enough about the president’s misconduct to make a responsible judgement about whether we think that’s compatible with the office of the president.”
The fast pace imposed by opponents in the development of impeachment is unusual, and more and more voices join in reinforcing the dubious intention that drives it. Apparently it is intended to prevent the re-election of the American president, as can be inferred from what Escobar said.
Author and columnist Kimberley A. Strassel in the Wall Street Journal was forceful in referring to the procedure followed by Schiff.
“Mr. Schiff has himself trampled law and responsibility,” Strassel said, adding, “Fanatics can justify any action, and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff this week demonstrated where that mindset leads.”
