    Dem congressman warns removing Trump is 'bad politics,' predicts Nikki Haley as GOP nominee in 2020

    Dem congressman warns removing Trump is '''bad politics,''' predicts Nikki Haley as GOP nominee in 2020 | Fox News

    A Democratic congressman warned his colleagues on Monday that removing President Trump may be "bad politics" and predicted that Republicans would nominate former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley in 2020.

    Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., was asked on "CNN Newsroom" about remarks he made last month in which he said: "It's probably not a good thing to get rid of him [Trump]" despite his strong belief that the president should be impeached and removed.

    "I do think that it's the right thing to do to remove him from office. I believe he is an imminent danger to this country and to our democracy, but I was saying that the political consequences may not be very good for the Democrats," Yarmuth explained.

    Yarmuth then made a bold prediction that the GOP would not proceed with Vice President Mike Pence as the presumptive nominee if the Senate did take the unlikely step of voting to remove Trump from office.

    Looks like some Democrat Congressmen are starting to get nervous.

    It sounds like a test balloon they are floating, trying to find the best exit ramp when they need to give people an explination for NOT impeaching.

    Re: Dem congressman warns removing Trump is 'bad politics,' predicts Nikki Haley as GOP nominee in 2

    We shouldn't impeach Trump for his dozens of impeachable acts as POTUS, because we don't want Nicky Hailey as POTUS?
    Sounds absurd.

    "I do think that it's the right thing to do to remove him from office. I believe he is an imminent danger to this country and to our democracy.
    He later said: ďI donít think this is about politics and I donít think we should consider politics," Yarmuth said. "I just think it could be bad politics.Ē


    That's more appropriate. Nicky Hailey would be good for politics and the nation, as compared to Trump.
    Trump removed from office has a high 99.99% probability of being good for the nation and politics.

    Maybe he thinks we're a nation of partisans. We're not. Presidents are supposed to serve all Americans...Democrats, Republicans, and the rest. I suspect Nicky would fulfill that far more effectively than Trump, while also not being so deplorable as a leader, so corrupt, and such a danger to the nation. Politically if Trump is removed, the nation...including Democrats, benefit greatly. So do Republicans, even if they don't understand it.

    Didn't Nancy say this had to be bipartisan? The vote was bipartisan to vote against impeachment inquiry WAS bipartisan. The vote for impeachment inquiry was not bipartisan. Don't think its about politics...yeah right. Oh well Nancy lied again.

    That's something that plenty are still waiting for your side to actually prove.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    We already proved that - many times over.

    That you choose to gaslight and pretend there isn't overwhelming evidence in plain view doesn't change the facts, or make anyone obligated to rehash them.

    It's like listening to a creationist ask for proof of evolution and the age of the Earth, then proceed to ignore transitional fossils, genetics, and radiometric dating. It's the same thing here. You have no interest in interacting with the evidence you ask for.

    Re: Dem congressman warns removing Trump is 'bad politics,' predicts Nikki Haley as GOP nominee in 2

    Interesting proposition. I have a better one. Nominate one of those little bobblehead souvenirs of Trump. Just prop it on the podium at rallies, his supporters won't know the difference: they'll holler and wail and gnash their teeth. Probably win by a landslide but will do a lot less damage.
    NRAMAGASHFT: When I "excuse" you it only means that I can no longer carry water for the president and you have defeated me with reason and logic. My blithe attempts at personal attacks and undermining forum civility guidelines have also failed and my only recourse is to tuck tail and run.

    Nothing you said in the OP refutes the mile-long trail of guilt that tRump has laid down. Bring on Nikki Haley!

    The evidence so far is that a bunch of people made assumptions about things that either Rudy Giuliani told them directly or someone else who talked to Rudy Giuliani intimated to them. What there is overwhelming evidence of is that Rudi Giuliani orchestrated the quid pro quo. No evidence has yet been presented that Rudy Giuliani did that at the direction of Trump and there is actually a decent case to be made for plausible deniability. That is the dilemma for Democrats.

    Strange, I don't see you supplying said evidence. Instead I see you whining about being called out on not having yet supplied it... funny how that works.

    Listen, if you really want to talk about reality. Then I suggest that you actually supply whatever evidence you think proves that Trump should be impeached, instead of this usual chest thumping.

    Because just saying that there's evidence, and that it's already been proven, when it obviously hasn't. Doesn't really cut it. Which also counts for the fact that it's boring, and highly annoying that anyone who simple ask to see what this evidence is. Gets treated to the same rounds of crying and bluster that your whole camp usually brings.

    This is a simple set of questions with an equally simple set of answers.
