Former Montana law professor and now the Constitutional Fellow at the Independence Institute in Denver, Rob Natelson, weighed in Sunday on the newest wrinkle in the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Congressional Democrats are finally being forced to cave on the USMCA as a result of the embarrassment of the impeachment inquiry. That was my reaction LIVE on the radio on Tuesday morning, after the news was announced that House Democrats had finally reached an agreement on the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade.
"But how exactly has Trump acted oppressively or dangerously? By delivering an economy that has resulted in historically low unemployment? By demanding the respect of all nations for the mission of the United States as a defender of freedom? By working to expose the corrupt underbelly of the Washington, D.C., establishment? "
Uh oh. Impeachment isn't popular, and Americans are demanding that Congress move on to more important work like passing the US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA). And Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi knows it.
Impeachment backers simply will not have the votes to remove the President of the United States from power. They simply don't have the votes in the Senate. That's what Senator Daines had to say Thursday morning from Capitol Hill.
