The outcome of today’s scheduled impeachment vote is predictable. So are the upcoming Democrat efforts to use it to delegitimize President Donald Trump if he wins a second term.
It’s a pattern. Democrats deem close elections above reproach only if their preferred candidate wins.
In 2016, Trump sent Democrats and the media — but I repeat myself — into a tizzy. He refused to say he’d accept the election results if he lost, saying he’d look into the situation afterward. President Barack Obama called that “dangerous.”
“When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy,” Obama said in October 2016.
Funny how election results change things. Democrats spent the first two years of Trump’s presidency claiming he colluded with Russia to steal the election.
