House Dem Says They See No ‘Value’ In Impeachment After Polls Show Support For It Falling Among Independents

Published

on

Michigan Democrat Rep. Brenda Lawrence, a huge backer of Sen. Kamala Harris, who in turn is a big fan of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump announced over the weekend that she no longer sees any “value” in the process and has called for her Democratic colleagues to lend their support to a symbolic censure resolution.

Lawrence’s change of heart came hot on the heels of a number of polls that have shown that independents are no longer supporting impeachment of the president and removing him from office, particularly in battleground states like Wisconsin.

Here’s more from Fox News:

“We are so close to an election,” Lawrence said Sunday on a Michigan radio program, noting that Trump stands little chance of being convicted by the GOP-controlled Senate. “I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of taking him out of office. But I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable. It’s in violation of the oath of office of a president of the United States, and we have to be clear that you cannot use your power of the presidency to withhold funds to get a foreign country to investigate an American citizen for your own personal gain. There’s no way around that.”

Lawrence continued: “I want him censured. I want it on the record that the House of Representatives did their job and they told this president and any president coming behind him that this is unacceptable behavior and, under our Constitution, we will not allow it. … I am a Democrat, but I am an independent United States of America citizen.”

Lawrence occupies a safely Democratic district that includes eastern Detroit, and her reluctance to move forward with impeachment suggested that moderate Democrats in swing districts may also be getting cold feet now that all scheduled hearings in the probe wrapped up last week.

As if that wasn’t enough bad news for the left, new surveys also show that Democrat voters are also losing interest in impeachment. Nearly 50 percent of the independents questioned in the NPR/PBS/Marist poll that was conducted November 11-15 said they do not support impeaching Trump and booting him from office. Only 42 percent said they back such a move.

That’s a very noticeable change compared to the numbers in the survey conducted during the first week of October. In that poll 45 percent were supportive of the impeachment proceedings.

WATCH: Biden Refers to Horn-Honking Pro-Trump ‘Folks’ As ‘Ugly’ At Minnesota Rally

Ain’t he something!?

Joe Biden is still campaigning, apparently. Still speaking gibberish. Still hating on America. If rally crowd size is any indication, Biden is going to lose big on November 3. Until then, here’s the former vice president referring to pro-Trump protesters as “ugly.” From Fox News: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden jabbed at a group of Trump supporters who honked their horns at a campaign stop in Minnesota, while he attempted to detail his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night. Biden spoke over the noise throughout his speech at the drive-in rally in St. Paul. The former vice president ripped the Trump administration’s handling for the pandemic and appeared to grow irritated when the horn-honking interrupted his explanation for supporting a nationwide mask mandate. “Dr. Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden said. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping the horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1322305326188777473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322305326188777473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-biden-refers-to-horn-honking-trump-supporters-as-ugly-folks-while-promoting-bringing-the-country-together WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1313200566550564864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313200566550564864%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-joe-biden-telling-voters-to-think-about-trump-being-given-the-death-blow-while-still-in-hospital%2F REACTIONS:

Kamala Harris: First Thing Joe & I Do Will Be to ‘Work to Get Rid of That Tax Cut’

Is this what the people want, Harris?

Vice President Kamala Harris. Has a pretty awful ring to it, no? If things don’t go America’s way on November 3, it could most certainly become a reality. On the to do list in a Biden administration, you know, other than using the Constitution as a Swiffer pad? How about raising taxes? Sound good to you? From Breitbart: The cuts practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018. At a rally on October 30, Harris blabbered, “I promise you this — as a first order of business, Joe Biden and I are about to work to get rid of that tax cut.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1322313887107239936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322313887107239936%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F10%2F30%2Fkamala-harris-joe-biden-and-i-are-about-to-work-to-get-rid-of-that-tax-cut%2F Harris hates women, apparently. Her running mate has been accused of sexual harassment, yet she had no problem being on the same ticket. In fact, Kamala said she was “proud” of Jacob Blake despite his all-around violent history (especially with women), huh? What about Blake’s refusal to listen to law enforcement as they gave him orders, Kamala? Weren’t you the top cop of California, at one point? From Breitbart: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. […] At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed. https://twitter.com/AttorneyCrump/status/1303035889715752961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1303035889715752961%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2F2020-election%2F2020%2F09%2F07%2Fkamala-harris-told-jacob-blake-she-was-proud-of-him-sexual-assault%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqNefarA828#action=share
