One of the things that liberals do not seem to get is that you don’t usually get more than one shot at something.
The other thing that they don’t get is that on repeat tries of the same thing, you often get diminishing returns.
If they tried impeaching President Trump after all of this mess again, they would have an even harder time than they are going to now.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said Sunday that Democrats “will not stop” on impeachment and added that there may be more “impeachment activity” in the near future.
“The subpoenas that I have issued that have gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC. “We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know.”
Waters, who serves as chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee, has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for President Donald Trump’s personal and professional financial records. She suspects these documents will point toward illicit behavior on the part of the president.
Waters is not the first Democrat to suggest Congress might impeach Trump again. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) left open the possibility of new articles of impeachment against Trump. Rep. Al Green (D., Texas) has pushed for Democrats to reimpeach Trump if the Senate trial does not remove him.
Last month, Rep. Karen Bass (D., Calif.) said Democrats would continue to push for impeachment if Trump is reelected in 2020. House Counsel Douglas Letter said that a second impeachment of Trump could be necessary if new evidence comes to light about the president’s conduct.
