History will “smile upon” lawmakers who pursue the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MA), chair of the House Oversight Committee, on Sunday predicted that history will “smile upon” the lawmakers who pursue the impeachment of Donald Trump.

In an interview on Face the Nation, CBS host Bob Schieffer noted that several high profile Democrats are calling for impeachment proceedings to begin due to the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation report.

“This is a political act, and if you do vote to impeach him and then the Senate votes not to remove him, won’t that look like a victory for him?” Schieffer wondered.

“It may very well, but you know, sometimes, Bob, I got to tell you, there comes a point in life where we all have to make decisions based upon the fact that it is on our watch,” Cummings replied. “History, I think, even if we did not win possibly, if there were not impeachment, I think history would smile upon us for standing up for the Constitution.”

“You know, I hear a lot of people say they’re tired of hearing about the Mueller report,” he continued. “Well, we don’t have time to get tired, because the Russians aren’t getting tired. They are attacking our electoral system every single day, if not every hour.”

“We can not afford that. Our democracy cannot afford that,” Cummings added.

  1. The calculation remains the same. Proceed with impeachment, energize Trump’s base without increasing the Dem turnout, and then lose the election. Such “Principles” (read: “self-indulgent vindication in the guise of Constitutional posturing) will bear a huge cost.

  3. I guess Congress would rather keep wasting tax dollars on trying to overturn a lawful election than to work together to solve looming problems.

    IE: Social Security and Medicare. Wouldn’t history smile on them more favorably for keeping favored programs solvent and in perpetuity for the benefit of all?

    • There was nothing about Traitor Trump’s “election” that was lawful. Going after that Republitarded crook 🐘👈🏼🤪 means only one thing for Democrats – their poll numbers will go up. Trump’s numbers never go up above 45% for any reason whatsoever. Plump Chump Trump has a permanent ceiling of 45% support which is currently down at 37% after the redacted Mueller Report was finally released Barr

      The only thing Democrats have to fear is inaction (and fear itself).

      • Fortunately for the Democratic Party, the base generally (and specifically when it comes to Impeachment) do not take their cues from party leadership, unlike the rapidly disintegrating dysfunctional GOP = Greedy Old Perverts. Enjoy Trump’s Impeachment hearings (eventually). We all know you will, sycophant. Trump however will poop his pants. 👖 💩
