President Trump’s campaign signaled an interesting impeachment defense strategy on Sunday as a campaign official took down Colorado U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse for wanting to impeach the Republican before he was even sworn into office.
Neguse appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with campaign official David Urban and presented his case against Neguse, reminding America of what Neguse said before he was even sworn into office:
As a guest on MSNBC in November 2018, Neguse claimed there was “sufficient evidence in the public square to indicate” that Trump had violated the Constitution and “ultimately has committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” a standard needed for impeachment.
In 2017, Neguse told MSNBC he supported an effort then to launch an impeachment inquiry.
Bearing down on his point Neguse wanted to impeach before he heard even a shred of evidence, Neguse’s only rebuttal, was don’t change the subject.
“I’ll tell you this: There are a number of us who have ultimately long believed that this president has engaged in conduct that could be impeachable.”
There you have it. Impeach first, argue whatever evidence is found later. Just get Trump out of office so Democrats don’t have to run against him in 2020.
Neguse also claimed with a straight face the impeachment was not political, watch for yourself.
