President Trump has completely ruined any chances he had of making it to a second term, because while it seemed impossible, so did his electoral slaughter of Hillary Clinton in 2016. Now, however, Hillary has a bigger chance of being elected than Trump thanks to a group of Democrats plotting to take Trump down far before the 2020 election.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) is leading the group. He had this to say about it:
“It is clear to us that he is unfit to be president of the United States of America.”
When asked about the grounds on which the articles will be filed, Gutierrez said that he could not elaborate, but that Americans shouldn’t worry about lack of evidence:
“I assure you we will not leave you lacking for reason.”
After many botched attempts to act as a presidential leader, including multiple terror attacks, foreign and abroad, Trump is officially out of time. After watching the clear prejudice with which Trump runs the nation’s most prestigious office, Democrats believe now is the time to strike.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Monday indictment announcement has only made it clearer that the time to impeach is now. According to Gutierrez, “there is increased interest” in impeachment since the indictments.
This couldn’t have come at a worse time for Trump, whose popularity in the polls is next to nil.

Rep Al Green has already filed articles of impeachment, but has not yet forced a vote on the matter. He says that that time will come in the future. Tuesday morning, Green said this about the articles:
“I’m in no rush to be first, but I will say this: We have to — we have to bring it to the floor.”
Green warns that “history won’t be kind” to those politicians who did not act during a time in America when tensions were high and the integrity of the nation as a whole is at stake. He does, however, admit that some Democrats are completely against attempts of impeachment during the Russia investigation.
Gutierrez says it’s now time for Democrats to band together to stop Trump’s obvious personal agenda that has nothing to do with the betterment of America, or even the maintenance of his highly successful predecessor’s accomplishments. He says:
“We appreciate single members putting in on their own articles of impeachment, (but) we’re going to use a lot of constitutional scholars and really make a case that the president should be impeached.”
Chicago Tribune reported:
“Speaking on Tuesday morning at the City Club of Chicago, Gutierrez said he and several fellow members of the House judiciary committee intend to “file articles of impeachment against Trump before Thanksgiving.””
Get ready for a sh*tshow.
