Response to dewsgirl (Reply #2)

61. Cody Fenwick put it like this for AlterNet:

[T]here’s some truth to [Kevin] McCarthy’s claim that some people have long thought Trump should be impeached, and Ukraine is just the most salient issue on which to launch an impeachment. I, for one, have written many times that Trump has committed impeachable offenses and should never have been elected in the first place. Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib memorably said in January, “We’re going to impeach the motherfucker!”

But conservatives draw the wrong inference from this fact. They say that since critics of the president wanted Trump to be impeached all along, the calls to impeach him over the Ukraine scandal can’t be taken seriously.

In fact, the Ukraine scandal just proves that Trump’s critics calling for impeachment were right all along.
