Dem Sen Coons: We Have Not Seen the ‘Sorts of Evidence’ to Justify Impeaching Trump
Breitbart ^ | 12/21/2017 | PAM KEY

Posted on 12/21/2017 10:50:54 AM PST by gubamyster

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said it was “premature” to discuss impeaching President Donald Trump because he has not “seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point.”

Coons said, “I’m not calling for the president’s impeachment at this point because I don’t think we’ve seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point. I’m a political realist. It’s a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Impeachment won’t move forward unless there is something that shocks the conscience of the average American and persuades a majority of Republicans this president committed high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s premature to even discuss that.”

Yeah because they never had anything to begin with other than the fact that they hate Trump and wish that Clinton had been elected so they could have imposed their Commie agenda on us

No "...Sorts of Evidence...."? Yikes!

Coons is going to be on somebody's sh*t list after saying that.

Watch for a retraction coming to a theater near you soon.

I don’t think the impeachment mob cares much about ‘evidence’. They just know they’re really upset and think that should be enough.

Coons has NOTHING to do with impeachment. Why are they even asking him about the possibility?

“I don’t think the impeachment mob cares much about ‘evidence’. They just know they’re really upset and think that should be enough.”

By “impeachment mob,” I assume you really mean the Cong. Black Caucus.

Obama actually has cause for impeachment. Ho Hum. Senator Coons reminds me of an actual event that occurred to me. I reported aboard the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER (SSBN 656) back in 1973 and believe it or not the acting OOD who received me onboard was Chief Coon! I won’t tell what passed through my mind when I learned of his name! I will tell that it was one of the best assignment I had in the Navy and I greatly admired Chief Coon and I admired even more G.W. Carver as I passed by his portrait every time I entered my office.

Why is that senator allowed to be recognized by his last name? That name is offensive. He must change it to Racoons.

Its premature because the Dems don’t control Congress.

Just remember that this is a self-avowed Marxist speaking. He is as likely to tell the truth as would a Mohammedan.

I think he realized that after the tax bill, Trump is a one termer and the GOP loses the majority in 2018.

The talk about impeachment is going to go way down.

Yes, I would agree it’s not likely.

Is Coon trying to be reasonable? I bet someone will say that Coons molested someone in a few days, so he will have to resign to get someone more INSANE. 😀
