Sources suggest that having already sabotaged his policy agenda with a series of leaks, turncoats from within the administration could be instrumental in going rogue and pushing for the impeachment of US President Trump.
The only way for impeachment to succeed would be if it was a bi-partisan effort. Bringing articles of impeachment against the president requires a majority vote in Congress, while a vote from at least two thirds of the Senate would be required to remove Trump from office.
The only way this could be accomplished was if former and current members of the administration acted as whistleblowers against Trump, which is precisely what could unfold in the coming months.
Some of Trump’s most prominent conservative media supporters have already been tipped off about the impeachment plan, including Matt Drudge, who has been desperately warning Trump in recent weeks that he needs to purge his administration of disloyal figures.
The initial call for impeachment is likely to come from within the Congressional Black Caucus, sources suggest. Its members have been the most vocal in calling for Trump to be removed from office.
Back in February, Rep. Yvette Clarke called for Trump’s impeachment, stating, “All of the ducks are beginning to line up, they are really beginning to line up around this presidency and I will just say to you, it won’t be long.”
With Trump set to take the gloves off and initiate a purge of administration insiders in the near future, the deep state and the Democratic Party establishment that has sought to sabotage Trump from day one will not relent on their hysterical mission to overthrow a democratically elected president.
This, combined with Trump’s frustration at members of his own team not being strong enough in retaliating to constant media smear campaigns, in addition to endless leaks, makes for a toxic combination.
In an effort to promote the idea that Trump’s impeachment is inevitable, prompting insiders to break rank, major news outlets have all published articles calling for the impeachment of Trump in recent days, including the Washington Post, The Nation, The Guardian, and the Chicago Tribune.
The Washington Post is so gung-ho for impeachment that members of its newsroom applauded themselves when traffic to the website broke records after the release of the Russia leak story yesterday.
Although impeachment is the ultimate end game, it doesn’t look to be on the immediate horizon.
During a town hall yesterday, Nancy Pelosi of all people emphasized that articles of impeachment can’t be brought on negative feelings alone
“What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case, you are just participating in more hearsay,” she said.
