Kellyanne Conway made up an imaginary US Constitution where it is unconstitutional to impeach Donald Trump.
Conway said, “They need to read the Constitution in the Democratic Party. Americans, the Congress, they work for you, and they’re wasting your money and your time trying to impeach a president where there are no high crimes and misdemeanors. They thought the Mueller report would be the end-all. They even had Bob Mueller come and talk about the Mueller report and it was a disaster, so they work for you…Tell them to stop the nonsense of harassing and embarrassing this president and the people around him when you have no constitutional or legal basis to do so.”
Democrats understand and believe in the Constitution. The problem is that Donald Trump doesn’t know what is in the Constitution, and believes that he has unlimited powers to do whatever he wants.
Impeachment is not unconstitutional. In fact, the reason why the investigation is taking so long is that vast numbers of crimes and impeachable offenses that the House Judiciary Committee must look into. The problem for Trump isn’t impeachment itself. Mitch McConnell will never allow Trump to be convicted and removed from office.
The political death sentence for Trump surrounding impeachment involves public hearings, and what they will find ahead of the 2020 election. Corruption is what will bring Donald Trump down.
Democrats have the Constitution on their side, as impeachment exists to check presidents like Donald Trump.
