While Nancy Pelosi blathers on about anything but impeachment, she is outflanked by a Republican. Bill Weld, former Governor of Massachusetts and sometimes Libertarian, is planning to primary Trump.
And he’s way beyond impeachment.
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election.* That’s not just undermining democratic institutions. That is treason. It’s treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty,” Weld said, on “Morning Joe.”
Now, I’m not considering voting for a Republican, and I’m sure he’s not actually suggesting putting Trump in the electric chair (possibly out of concern for the chair), but saying ‘Let’s kill the son of a bitch’ is a lot more promising than Nancy Pelosi’s “Oh, no, I don’t think we should impeach him.”
Democrats need to get out ahead of this and start the impeachment. If the Republicans decide to hang Trump out to dry their own selves, then the Democrats will look piss weak, no doubt about it.
*There are charges that Trump asked the president of Ukraine to dig up some dirt on Biden’s son (who does have some very shady business dealings) Trump has admitted that he talked to the Ukrainian president about Biden, but didn’t admit to saying anything specific.
