    Omaha, NE—Kara Eastman, the first Omaha Democrat looking to take on freshman Republican Congressman Don Bacon next year, says it is “a little soon” to impeach President Donald Trump. in a wide ranging interview with News Channel Nebraska, Eastman—a member of the Metropolitan Community College board who is little known to most voters—weighed in on Trump, others who might get in the Democratic Primary including former Congressman Brad Ashford, and much more: NCN: The fact that you are getting in shows you feel you are more equipped for Congress than others that might run. What makes you more equipped than...

    Washington can hardly keep up with the unprecedented pace at which Donald Trump’s presidency is cascading out of control. Ironically, the appointment last week of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election may slow White House hemorrhaging, taking pressure off GOP congressional leaders and their weak investigations and temporarily shoring up support for Trump on Capitol Hill. For Democrats and independents concerned about the safety and well-being of the country, however, the priority must be getting Trump out of the White House as quickly as possible. He is simply too great a threat...

    Several things are amiss with the impeachment machine that's starting to shake and smoke as progressives put their hands to the crank. The first thing is the calendar date. Donald Trump has been president since Jan. 20. That makes his regime -- which does have the aura of a regime -- four months old. Roman emperors occasionally wore out that fast. Nero had three successors before things settled down for a while under Vespasian. Americans, by contrast, are more patient; they prefer waiting to see how things work out. Talk of leveraging Trump from power at this early hour looks...

    RUSH: Last week — late last week, Thursday and Friday — there appears in various media stories about how one, two, and then three prominent Democrats expressed the need for the Democrat Party to start walking back all this talk of impeachment. First, it was just one, and then another one. It ended up being three people. I don’t remember their names right off the bat; doesn’t matter. And it caught my attention, obviously. Why walk back this notion of impeachment? And there were two reasons. One reason is, there isn’t a crime here. Despite all of this irresponsible reporting,...

    The Huffington Post ^ | May 22, 2017 | Matt Fuller and Sam Stein
    With President Donald Trump’s approval rating sinking and congressional Republicans pushing a deeply unpopular agenda, Democrats have a real chance to take back the House. But that opportunity is being complicated by one word that is coming up with increasing regularity on the midterm campaign trail: “impeachment.” That’s the conclusion House Democratic leaders have reached through internal polling, and it’s one that top Republicans, including allies of the Trump administration, shared in conversations with HuffPost. “In focus groups in swing districts and in Georgia-06 (where a special election is being held this June) ― where we do think Trump is...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/19/17 | Jim Hoft
    For months since the election the only topic on the mainstream media (MSM) news outlets has been that President Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton by working in collusion with Russia. This fallacious argument is played around the clock by the MSM and discussed repeatedly ad nauseam by Democrats every chance they get. On Wednesday the headline of the Drudge Report was that Democrats felt they were finally at the place where they could poll test their efforts to impeach President Trump. Democrats can’t do anything without a poll. The Drudge Report’s headline linked to a report from...

What is news is the fact that even some ardent liberals are worried that reflexively jumping on the impeachment bandwagon is folly.

Host Joy Reid asked, “I want to do a quick round robin and take your guys’ temperature on the likelihood of impeachment — impeachment with Republicans leading it, impeachment with Democrats leading it, or no impeachment at all.(snip)

    A black Texas congressman said Saturday that he’s been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Donald Trump. U.S. Rep. Al Green held a town hall meeting and played recordings of several threatening voicemails left at his offices in Houston and Washington, the Houston Chronicle reports . The seven-term Democrat told the crowd of about 100 people that he won’t be deterred. […] One male caller used a racial insult and threatened Green with “hanging from a tree” if he pursues impeachment. Another man left a message saying Green would be the one impeached after...

    ... after he calls for Trump's impeachment (headline continued) During a town hall meeting on Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week. "You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said. The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. "You ain't going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you," said a caller. The Houston Democrat was the first member of Congress to call for Trump's impeachment from the House floor...

    President Donald Trump’s accusation that the media have subjected him to “the worst witch hunt ever experienced by an American politician” was assailed by NBC’s Lester Holt as “wrong in so many ways.” “Mr .Trump’s careless use of the language is yet another page of the case against his presidency,” Holt contended. “Witches are female. The continuing efforts of the GOP to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton that former FBI Director James Comey declared baseless could be fairly described as a witch hunt. The pursuit of Trump’s conspiracy with the Russians to derail her presidential bid would be more accurately...

    DB Daily Update ^ | 5.20.2017 | David Blackmon
    Democrats have now set themselves up with a big problem, thanks to their incessant, irrational talk about “Impeachment” over the last few months: They now have a radical leftwing base that expects them to deliver the goods, and soon. The trouble is, it’s a goal that is not deliverable any time in the foreseeable future. In doing this, the Democrats have set themselves up with the very same conundrum that Republicans set themselves up with on Obamacare. Why is it not deliverable? First because, simply, the impeachment of a president requires there to be a crime. So far, despite all...

    Although many on the left have expressed their approval of Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Alan Dershowitz thinks Mueller could actually vindicate President Donald Trump, rather than bring about his downfall. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Dershowitz, a legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor, said he doesn't see a crime that necessitated the appointment of a special counsel.

    President Donald Trump has made himself "very vulnerable personally" amid investigations of his campaign ties with Russia, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday. She pointed to Trump's reported request to now-fired FBI Director James Comey to lay off an investigation of Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser. "I think the Flynn thing is where the president is very vulnerable personally," Pelosi told The Associated Press in an interview in her office. "If the president in fact asked Comey to let up on ... Flynn -- you don't do that."(continued)

    As White House lawyers begin researching impeachment procedures, former senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Friday night the GOP is nowhere near supporting such a move, but warned President Donald Trump that "this can't continue for a whole lot longer." A person briefed on the matter told CNN that lawyers in the White House counsel's office have consulted experts in impeachment during the past week and have begun collecting information on how such proceedings would work. People briefed on the legal discussions also revealed that White House officials believe the President has the backing of Republican allies in...

    Prominent American lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Elizabeth MacDonald on FOX Business Network that he had seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia and even if there was evidence it wasn’t a crime. Alan Dershowitz: Well first of all I don’t see any evidence of collusion, and second even if there was major collusion, that’s not a crime. Even hypothetically if the administration or the candidate got together with the Russians and said, “Please help me become president. Do whatever you can to help me.” That wouldn’t be a crime… The most serious condemnations...

    President Trump has had a rough week. On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that the president asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the bureau's investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn's alleged ties with Russia. Then, on Wednesday, the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to take over the investigation of Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election. With his administration battered by constant scandal, the president is now facing growing talk of impeachment. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., made headlines on Wednesday for likely being the first Republican...
