Democrats will soon regret the day they attempted to remove President Donald Trump from office, claims Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera.
As the prospect of a senate impeachment trial appears more and more likely, Rivera appeared on “Fox & Friends” to offer his thoughts on Democrats’ political strategy and where they may be going wrong.
Prior to getting Rivera’s thoughts, Brian Kilmeade and co. played a clip from a CNN town hall in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared with host Jake Tapper before a crowd of concerned citizens. Pelosi mused on the “damage” President Trump has done to America, further stating that she doubts whether the country can sustain another term from the 45th president. The speaker also voiced her disinterest in discussing impeachment generally by asking the crowd: “Can we not have any more questions about impeachment?”
“What will the checks be on this president if he is re-elected,” a member of the crowd asked Pelosi. The house speaker was not amused by the question, responding: “Let’s not even contemplate that. The damage that this administration has done to America… as a great country, we can sustain. Two terms? I don’t know.”
Kilmeade and Rivera noted the irony of Pelosi’s reluctance to discuss impeachment right after requesting the drawing up of formal articles of impeachment. “This impeachment is a disastrous idea. It’s going to be a partisan mud fight,” Rivera continued.
The ultimate results of the current impeachment drama are already a “preordained conclusion,” Rivera says. “The president will be acquitted by the Republicans in the senate just as surely as he will be impeached by the Democrats in the house,” all of which will only serve to hinder the Democratic Party in states such as Iowa and New Hampshire, he continued.
Rivera said this whole process has left him “furious” as he would rather focus on “big stories” like immigration, trade deals, the economy, and Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.
