Democrats really seem to be losing their minds.
Not only are they trying to impeach President Donald Trump without constitutional basis, likely with the aim of trying to block him from ever getting back into office and/or smearing the GOP, but they’re going off into crazy hyperbole land in the process.
Indeed one who is going over the edge is probably the last person who should be commenting, to begin with — Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).
Swalwell unbelievably tried to compare the president to Osama Bin Laden and the 9/11 attack.
Comparing the president of the United States to Osama bin Laden is ludicrous and an insult to him and to those who died on 9/11.
Trump also said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to PEACEFULLY and patriotically make your voices heard.”
Swalwell is most known for farting live on television and having a relationship with a Chinese spy. But despite all that he still has a seat on one of the most sensitive Committees in the House, the Intelligence Committee. Why is he still there when he’s potentially compromised? How does he think he has any standing to comment on anyone else?
House Republicans protested to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) in a formal letter in December about Swalwell still being on the Committee after all the gory details about the alleged spy came out.
Not only hasn’t Pelosi removed him, but she’s even named him to be one of the impeachment managers in their effort to take out Trump, as we reported earlier, along with several other impeachment managers including Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a former constitutional law professor, to lead the effort and Reps. Diana DeGette (D-CO), David Cicilline (D-RI), Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Joe Neguse (D-CO), Madeleine Dean (D-PA), and Del. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI).
So, not only is Pelosi ignoring the concerns about Swalwell, but it appears she’s even trying to rehabilitate him with this move and give him more responsibility rather than remove him. She’s certainly ignoring the Republican concerns with this move.
Meanwhile, this character comes up with ridiculous things like this, showing that he’s just not a very serious or intelligent person, despite being on the Intelligence Committee.
Here’s Mark Steyn skewering Swalwell, as my colleague Sister Toldjah wrote about previously.

People blasted Swalwell for this latest nonsensical comment.
This is absolutely idiotic https://t.co/Lzwf1zVZbU

Casting POTUS as a terrorist. Exactly the kind of accusation the Chinese Communist Party would love to see promulgated by an American congressman. After being compromised by a Chinese spy, how is this man not only still in Congress, but on TV, *and* an impeachment manager? https://t.co/iMxI1TMjpZ

Pro-tip: Never evoke 9/11 or Bin Laden when making any comparison in TV interviews…
