Democrats Reveal the Real Purpose of the Impeachment Investigation

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts:

The Democrats know that there is no impeachable offense.  What they intend to do is to use the investigation to look into every aspect of Trump’s life and try to make dirt out of things unrelated to his talk with the Ukrainian president.  This “impeachment investigation” is a political act to help their candidate win the next presidential election.

Democrats themselves describe it in this way. For example, here is how Rob Kall, the director of one of the progressive Democrat websites, described the purpose of the investigation:

“The idea should be to keep the impeachment going as long as possible, with new testimonies and new releases of disclosures of alleged corruption and treason on a regular basis.

“Looking at impeachment as a process for removing the president is the wrong way of thinking about it. Looking at it as a key that gives access to investigative tools is the smarter, more strategic, way of looking at it.

“Ideally, it will get so bad for Trump that the Republicans will end up putting up someone else to run in the general election.

“But keeping him under investigation, at least through the November election, will increasingly erode the support of both Trump and the Republican party brand, making a Democratic takeover of the Senate and the White House, and an increased control of the House even more likely.”

In other words, it is a political power play.

The outcome depends on whether Americans see the impeachment investigation as another orchestrated hoax like Russiagate or whether they fall for the hoax as they iniatially did with the Russiagate investigation.

The United States does not have a media.  It has a propaganda ministry that helps the ruling elites control the explanations that Americans are given.  Polls show that Americans have lost confidence in the media.  If so, the impeachment investigation will backfire on the Democrats.

The ultimate purpose of the constant attacks on Trump is to teach the American voters that electing a president who is disapproved by the Establishment is futile.  The Establishment simply will not permit any change and will frustrate and destroy any president not selected by them as a candidate.

This is the real way so-called “American democracy” works.  The establishment guides the selection of the Democrat and Republican candidates. Whichever wins, the Establishment wins.  This didn’t happen in Trump’s case, and so he has to be prevented from altering the Establishment’s agendas.

Entirley agree with this point

Just as the ‘remainers’ in the UK are keeping up the pressure on the PM Johnson – it is not about a no deal brexit – it is all about remaining in the EU – overturning the wishes of the electorate in any way possible – the EU a most despicable and anti-democratic organisation led by failed ex-politicians and their friends for all their own benefits.

Brexit is the clearest example yet of the illusion of democracy. Like elections all over the world if the Elites are satisfied with the outcome it is legit. If not then it is considered flawed and must be overturned. Examples abound but look at the election of Hamas in Gaza and the election of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela will suffice. Brexit is just one more example. A clear majority voted to leave. The Elites do not want that outcome, so it is delay after delay, weasle words after weasel words to avoid granting the demands of the electorate. In this… Read more »

Re the EU and BREXIT, I could not agree more. Re Trump and impeachment, I vehemently disagree with much of what Trump say’s and does but as far as I can tell, he hasn’t done anything wrong or unlawful in relation to US domestic law during his tenure at the White House.

I hope the establishment realise the error of their ways. Trump was an establishment darling before he went rogue. To trail up his past puts their own future at risk. It is possibly the reason every attempt to get a drop on Trump they end up dropping themselves. Trump has as much dirt on them and, as long as he’s the President, they can’t make a martyr out of him lest the whole narrative fall to ruin.

The Radical Marxist Bolshevik – Chaka Socialist Progressive Communists Democrats hate President Trump and anyone American who voted for him or those who still supports him.

Many who still support him aren’t holding his feet to the fire.
What has Trump done for you that makes you think he’s the chosen one?
He promised to drain the swamp. Instead, he brought in all the war-pushers and all the banksters.

The deeper reason this propogandrist action has been pushed to the forefront with the upcoming elections next year is , to win the elections and put to bed the awakening of the peoples findings on The War on Terror , The 911 Truths , the corruption in money being stolen in front of your eyes , the prolonged War in Afghanistan and the Opiod drug trade associated with it , and the open admission of Change of Regime of countries to suit the US ! We think most people already know all this , you will be surprised at how… Read more »

Dr. Roberts: How can you state with certitude that “the Democrats know there is no impeachable offence?” Have you asked them?

From their all out efforts…which nave all come to naught since they began in earnest as far back as 2015…the “establishment” IS worried…Should Trump be reelected, BREXIT stand and France changes course…they are screwed…They are even calling out the children to assist in the bovine excreta that is climate change to try and muddy the waters further…
