Joe Lieberman: Impeachment of Trump ‘Most Partisan of All’

December 3, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Hoping for a Democratic Party willing to get something other than impeachment done, former Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., called this the most partisan impeachment attempt in American history.

“Of the four impeachments we’ve had — Andrew Johnson 1868, President Nixon, President Clinton and now President Trump — this will probably the most partisan of all – although they all have been somewhat partisan, that’s just the way it is,” Lieberman told “The Cats Roundtable” on 970 AM-N.Y.

Lieberman longs for nonpartisan work in Congress and lauds former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a centrist hope for the Democratic primary.

“To me, as a centrist Democrat, he is more to my liking than some of the other candidates,” Lieberman told host John Catsimatidis.

“He’s going to be there to the end because he’s not going to run out of money,” Lieberman added. “I think the more people look at him, the more they are going to think about him.”

The race to oppose President Donald Trump will be so close it might ultimately wind up undecided and render a “brokered” Democratic National Convention, Lieberman added.

“It’s possible for the first time in a long time in American politics that one of the two major parties will get to their national convention without an obvious nominee,” he said. “In other words, it will be undecided. We may go more than one ballot until we see who is going to be the Democratic nominee.

“And, I think, Mike Bloomberg entering this election increases that possibility.”

    Richard Nixon, resigned from The Presidency. He was not impeached. He was pardoned by President Ford. President Trump will not be impeached! But Joe Lieberman, you are correct about Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clinton being impeached, however, both House and Senate allowed Clinton to finish out his term.

    While I agree with Lieberman about Bloomberg being the greater challenge for the dem nomination his evaluation of his political position Is not correct. He would have to work convincingly toward the Psychotically Radical Socialist Democrats agenda or face the same persecution as Trump.

    The PRSDs are not all POed and worked up that trump won. It is because the stage set by Obama has been spoiled, or at least strongly delayed. They had the keys to the candy store in hand and here comes someone who not only took the keys, he changed the locks. At this point even if they were to get a candidate elected people will be much more observant of their activities. And very likely quick to drop the Big I hammer on them and the legislators in support this time.

    Obama raised the level of discontent in many groups, even to the point of new ones being created. Riot instead of legal means have been increasingly to express disagreement with law enforcement. Oh, legal means do come into play but with a bias of knowing that riot, probably destructive, will result if a completely lawful process does not give the desired result.

    He worked at and succeeded in having all law enforcement strongly disrespected. Aggression, intense verbal disrespect, running often causing much damage and behaving like a lawful order by law enforcement is a discussion. In fact, the idea that there is a law and that it might apply to them is disregarded with increasing frequency.

    He introduced edicts, some as laws, that have caused an unnecessary burden on the economy with the acceptance of thousands of foreign nationals flooding into the US. This flood and the disrespect has lead to a much higher calls of racism and bias in law enforcement and individuals. Which lead to his pet “Justice Department” investigating many police departments and universally finding the bias and or racism exists and imposed expensive and time consuming corrective action. It has also instilled a tentativeness on he part of law officers enacting their duties. Why, because they have been increasingly been arrested or at least charged and investigated for doing their job, The investigations biased by public opinion and grounds that just take too much time to evaluate when in the field on the job. Unrest in a good portion of the public about the application of law has resulted from numerous preferential treatment events for ‘elites’ and extreme efforts to persecute any who disagree with the Fundamental Change agenda.

    He strongly supported programs that increased the socialist version of equality. The teaching in school that the socialist agenda is the right way. Oh hell, I’m running out of steam!

    The whole point is that ‘Yes captain obvious, we know.’ may not apply across the board here. There has been so much CRAP in the past nearly 12 years that we are busy batting away and bulling through the chunks and forgetting the liquid. And the liquid will surely drown us faster than the chunks will crush us. Boom, Bam one thing after the other that are real attention getters to distract us from the structure being snuck in. THE AMERICAN SYSTEM, CONSTITUTION AND SOCIETY CAN NOT BE ALLOWED UNDER THE PILE OF DOG CRAP THEY ARE SHOVELING!
