President Joe Biden used to be a long-standing member of the United States Senate, and as such, he knows how the winds will blow when it comes to any given legislation or action. Right now, he sees that the impeachment of former President Donald Trump is dead in the water.
According to Fox News, Biden doesn’t need tea leaves to see where it’s going to go, but still thinks this trial needs to happen regardless:
Biden told CNN that he does not believe that Senate Democrats will get 17 Republicans to vote to convict the former president. He said that his opinion might have been different if Trump remained in office for a few more months.
Republican denunciations of Trump have cooled since the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Instead, Republicans are presenting a tangle of legal arguments against the legitimacy of the trial and questioning whether Trump’s repeated demands to overturn Joe Biden’s election really amounted to incitement.
“The Senate has changed since I was there, but it hasn’t changed that much,” Biden said. Biden, however, said he agreed with Democrats that the trial “has to happen.”
As has been discussed since the impeachment began, it’s odd that so much focus has been put on this by members of Congress when very real problems need to be focused on and addressed. So why continue this show if it’s not going anywhere?
The answer is a two-parter but it’s simple nonetheless.
For one, Trump was a nightmare for the Democrats and the left in general. The American government had never gotten so far away from them and it, in part, is why they became so erratic and desperately aggressive in their behavior over the past four years. Any attempt to keep Trump as far away from public office as possible is a chance they want to seize on.
But more importantly, because the left had invested so much time and effort into making Trump out to be the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, it’s no surprise that many Democrats can increase their clout by making a show of acting against the left’s most hated enemy.
Their actions against Trump are now a story they can tell later on when their reelections come up.
There’s a bottom-line they and the mainstream media are missing here, however.
The left believes putting on a show and settling their own vendettas are far more important than the actual problems happening here in the United States. You are a secondary, and possibly tertiary, concern when it comes to what they believe needs to happen in order to secure their own power.
No matter how you swing it, it would appear that Trump is still bringing out the true nature of the Democrats.
