The U.S. economy is booming under the economic policies of the Trump administration. Unemployment is at its lowest level in decades, paychecks are going up, and taxes have come way down.
Goodness, gracious! What's a power-hungry democrat heading into an election year to do? Impeach the President since you'll never get the American people to support your increasingly far-left, socialist agenda on healthcare, immigration, and climate change.
According to Marc Lotter, Director of Strategic Communications for the Trump 2020 campaign, that's the exact strategy that Democrats are pursuing.
"[Democrats] have gone so far to the radical left that they know the American people just aren't going to tolerate it," Lotter told Hammer and Nigel in an interview Wednesday afternoon. "They've got to change the subject, and this is where they've decided to go."
Lotter asserted that there is no such thing as a 'moderate' Democrat in the current political climate.
"I hear from friends of mine and even some one-time fellow competitors who Democrats [and] they tell me they don't even recognize the Democratic party anymore," said Lotter.
He continued: "This is a party that is openly against blue-collar jobs; they're holding up the USMCA, which would help our manufacturing sector [and] set our auto industry on fire, but they're playing games with it.
"They're more worried about being able to abort babies up until the moment of their first breath - that's how extreme they are."
According to Lotter, the left is now so liberal that they've left Barack Obama behind as a moderate.
Despite Pelosi and the Democrats' best efforts, however, the White House isn't going to cooperate with the impeachment probe.
On Tuesday, the White House announced that it would not be a participant in what it called an illegitimate effort “to overturn the results of the 2016 election.”
In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House said the inquiry had violated precedent and denied President Trump’s due process rights in such an egregious way that neither he nor the executive branch would willingly provide testimony or documents.
“Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” said the letter signed by Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel. “In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”
Lotter called the White House letter to Democrats "phenomenal."
"Democrats are attempting to suspend any kind of due process or fairness," Lotter told Hammer and Nigel, adding that "Republicans don't have a chance to question or subpoena their witnesses, [and] in fact, they are threatening Federal employees that 'if you're subpoenaed to come before us, you can't bring a lawyer with you. And if you do, you are going to be a part of this impeachment inquiry.'"
