The left was denied their massive “blue wave” last night, but that won’t stop them from providing us with loads of entertainment in 2019.
For the cynical political observer such as myself, the gains made by the democrats in last night’s 2018 midterm elections could translate into some wild antics in the coming legislative session. This will be led by none other than Nancy Pelosi, assuming the role of speaker of the house despite her incessant and unflappable ability to stick her foot directly into her mouth.
But Nancy’s not the only one…
Meanwhile, Rep. Maxine Waters, another California Democrat and one who has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment, could soon control her own committee — which would yield her the power to subpoena and control the fate of legislation.
Then there’s Rep. Adam Schiff, a true Trump hater who is beloved by the mainstream media.
Another California Democrat, Schiff could likely rise to chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, where he is now the ranking member.
Schiff, 58, said in an interview with CNN that the committee would “investigate questions involving Russian money laundering and President Donald Trump’s businesses.” Schiff said his committee would work in tandem with Waters’ focus on potential money-laundering schemes involving the Trump campaign and Russia, saying he’ll back Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion.
The list goes on…
Then there’s Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who would be poised to take over the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler could work with Schiff to oversee any attempt to impeach Trump.
Nadler, 71, was on the committee when it voted to impeach former President Bill Clinton, but he said then that the vote was an attempted coup and a “gross abuse” of the impeachment power. He apparently doesn’t think that any more.
“If the president perjured himself about colluding with Russians, that would be worthy of impeachment,” Nadler said in September. “Perjury about some real estate deal that happened 10 years ago that the Trump Organization took, that would not be an impeachable offense. It would be a crime.”
And, outside of these soon to be filled leadership roles, there’s a new girl on the block as well, whose penchant for nonsense precedes her.
It’s time to pop the popcorn, folks. This is going to be hilarious.
