As the dysfunction in DC reaches dire new heights, some who were previously loyal to President Trump have taken a turn.
On the left, the idea of impeachment has been around since before Donald Trump even took office. The simple fact that he was running for President was enough to have democrats working toward some sort of “back up plan” to oust him should he win.
And when he did, the entirety of the left side of the aisle went up in flames.
Now after two years of Trump in the Oval Office, the democrats are still trying to remove him, or nullify the results of the 2016 election by casting fears of Russian meddling into the public realm.

One of the loudest voices in this anti-Presidential fracas has been Adam Schiff, who today latched onto a surprising republican call for impeachment.
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said his House of Representatives colleague Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct” was courageous.
Schiff said, “What the speaker has referred to and I have as well is can impeachment be successful in the Senate? We see no signs of that yet. I respect what Justin Amash is doing has said he showed more courage than any other Republican in the House or Senate. But what may be pushing us in the direction of impeachment in any event has less to do with Justin Amash but more the administration is engaging in a maximum obstructionism campaign.”
Amash became the first prominent republican to publicly state his belief that Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable” offenses.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuked any and all talk of impeachment, furthering infuriating an already hysterical democratic base.
