The Democrat’s desperation is showing. They are facing a must-win election in 2020 and Trump seems to be in a good spot.
The polls have always been wrong about Trump, and with the economy is doing very well the opposition faces an uphill struggle.
Americans vote with their pocketbooks and they will have a tough case to make if the economy keeps booming.
That said, going too far is a huge risk for the left – impeachment could divide them and calling for Trump to be jailed is a dumb political move. From Fox News:
2020 candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has issued a stunning warning to President Trump that seems to echo controversial recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying her Justice Department would likely charge him with obstruction of justice if she wins the White House.
Harris, in a newly released interview, said she believes the only reason former Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not recommend prosecuting Trump was because of the Justice Department’s policy against indicting a sitting president.
Once out of office, Trump would be subject to charges — and Harris was emphatic in saying the DOJ should pursue them.
“I believe that they would have no choice and that they should, yes,” Harris said on this week’s NPR Politics Podcast.
The former California attorney general and San Francisco district attorney cited the importance of holding everyone accountable for their actions.
“I mean look, people might, you know, question why I became a prosecutor,” Harris said. “Well, I’ll tell you one of the reasons – I believe there should be accountability. Everyone should be held accountable, and the president is not above the law.”
Harris is not the first high-profile Democrat to suggest that not only should Congress pursue impeachment against Trump — but he should face criminal charges once out of office.
Pelosi, D-Calif., reportedly told colleagues last week: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”
Trump reacted to this by calling Pelosi “a nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., however, had no problem with Pelosi’s remarks.
“I don’t have any difficulty with those words,” Cicilline told “Fox News Sunday,” comparing them to when then-candidate Trump inspired “lock her up” chants when he ran against Hillary Clinton.
A 2018 New York Times report also said that Trump looked into prosecuting Clinton, as well as former FBI Director James Comey.
