Two Democrats were just sworn in to the Senate this week: Doug Jones of Alabama and Tina Smith of Minnesota.
One man waits in the wings to do the same – former GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
The Trump White House is likely watching the Senate developments very closely as they could prove pivotal to ongoing attempts to destroy the Trump presidency.
Smith is simply a side move for Democrats, but Jones is a big gain. He is the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in a generation. It is believed both Smith and Jones support the “Impeach Trump” movement that continues to fester throughout Congress.
Which brings us to Mr. Romney. The animosity between Romney and Trump is well documented. On Romney’s side some have suggested it borders on outright contempt toward Donald Trump. If Mitt Romney were to become a member of the Senate, he too would likely represent a yes vote on Trump impeachment.
Far-fetched you say? Such a vote would never get past Republicans in the House, you say?
Who is the current Speaker of the House? Paul Ryan. Yes, the same Paul Ryan who also shares a deep dislike for the President and who also remains very close to a certain former running mate:
And don’t forget the shock to the political system to see a Democrat recently win in Alabama. Should anyone be so confident to assume Republicans will keep the House after 2018? At the very least the Republican majority will be slashed as more and more anti-Trump voices are added to Congress.
Please don’t doubt for a second the “Destroy Trump” wheels are no longer in motion. The anti-Trump forces don’t actually need to impeach the President, they merely need to make it appear the vast majority of the country demands impeachment – a move which will be weaponized both during the 2018 Midterms and the 2020 Election.
POTUS Trump’s time in the White House remains a very precarious thing. No other U.S. president of the modern era has come close to risking so much to help so many while facing such frighteningly powerful opposition.
