Republican Congressman Steve Scalise torched the Democrats’ bootleg, sham impeachment as an illegitimate “political vendetta” against President Trump based entirely on partisan “fabrication.”
A fired-up Scalise — the House Minority Whip — made the assertions while appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend.”
“There has never been a crime in this case!” Scalise said. “They’ve tried to find a crime, starting with the [hoax] Mueller investigation. This whole impeachment inquiry is a political vendetta. This is all about them not liking the fact that Donald Trump was duly elected president in 2016. And frankly, they’re scared to death that he’s going to win again because he’s been delivering on his promises.”
Scalise added: “[Impeachment is] not only desperation, but a fabrication.”

Scalise — who was almost murdered in 2017 by a crazed leftist who wanted to assassinate Republicans — said the impeachment is hurting the entire country.
Why? Because while Congress wastes taxpayer money and time rabidly pushing impeachment, they’re ignoring the problems roiling the nation, like the illegal immigration crisis, soaring prescription-drug prices, and the deadly opioid epidemic.
“People wonder what is the price of impeachment,” Scalise said. “It’s trampling over our Constitution and the standard of impeachment. But it’s all the things that have not gotten done like USMCA and lower drug prices. And that’s the problem: the [Democrats] haven’t delivered for the American people. Luckily, President Trump has delivered and continues to.”
Like other lawmakers and political analysts, Steve Scalise said Democrats should let the American people decide whether or not to oust President Trump.
“We have an election next year. Let the voters decide this!” Scalise said. “There are no facts there. There’s just nothing to impeach this president on the articles of impeachment that just came out.”
Scalise said the Democrats’ “radical base” is pushing for the sham impeachment even though President Trump has not committed any impeachable offenses.
“The President didn’t do anything wrong,” Scalise explained. “[On] the phone call, Zelensky himself said there was nothing wrong. But because you don’t like the results of the election, and you’re more afraid of your radical left base in Washington than you are of the constituents who elected you back home…that’s the real reckoning.”
It’s obvious that Democrats are not acting in good faith with their bogus impeachment stunt. Want proof? Nancy Pelosi — the leader of the Democratic Party — twice admitted in public this month that the Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump since the day he took office.
“[Impeachment] has been going on for 22 months — two and a half years, actually,” Pelosi confessed.
In other words, Democrats already had a predetermined outcome. The Ukraine call is merely a pretext to damage President Trump politically in the hopes that voters will turn against him.
So far, the impeachment has been backfiring, as angry constituents are confronting Democrats over the hoax.
