Top Dem Steny Hoyer folds like a cheap suit when the ‘resistance’ attacks for not backing impeachment

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer tucked tail and ran after his attempt to face reality in the wake of Robert Mueller’s report earned him a boatload of hate from the anti-Trump Resistance.

The Maryland Democrat appeared to backtrack and reverse his earlier remarks after being torched for even suggesting that impeachment of President Donald Trump is not a “worthwhile” option.

“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer reportedly said, according to CNN’s Dana Bash.

Collusion or not, the left is bent on pinning something on Trump, and a top Democrat saying dropping the impeachment push did not fit their narrative, regardless of the findings of Robert Mueller’s report that cleared the president on alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

Hoyer was pummeled on social media.

The criticism apparently hit its mark because the Democrat seemed to walk back his comments in the wake of the thrashing he got from left-wing activists. Hoyer tweeted Thursday that Congress must obtain the “full” Mueller Report to “determine what actions may be necessary.”

Perhaps Hoyer was spurred on also by his left-wing primary challenger who openly called him a coward and declared that she was “in favor” of impeaching Trump.

“Hoyer continues to show that he lacks the courage to stand up to the status quo. It’s times like this that we ask, “who’s side is he on?” @LeaderHoyer, if you stand for nothing, what’ll you fall for?” Mckayla Wilkes tweeted.

The left happily promoted her primary campaign against Hoyer.
