Trying to impeach Trump could seriously backfire on the Democrats.
They think they’re going to drag Trump down by doing this but it’s going to put them under a microscope too and Trump will exploit all of their weaknesses.
Jared Peterson writes at American Thinker:
Impeachment? Bring it on. Trump can put the Dems on trial in the Senate
The entrenched elites of both parties and a large portion of the corrupt upper federal bureaucracy understand the mortal threat President Trump poses to them. This threat has been the driving force behind the continuous efforts to destroy the Trump presidency since (and before) the president’s inauguration.
These forces have no doubt already figured out they can’t beat the president at the ballot box. Impeachment is their last desperate chance to rid themselves of the man who has so effectively exposed their self-enrichment and multiple sell-outs of the American people.
And now they think they see their chance — based on a single telephone call in which America’s president, reasonably and with more than good cause, suspecting criminal wrongdoing, may have sought the assistance of a foreign head of state in getting to the bottom of his amply justified suspicions…
The president’s defense in the Senate, accordingly, must engage, spotlight, scrutinize and expose the entire course of odious conduct by the president’s corrupt attackers, from their first spinning of the Russia collusion hoax,through the latest chapter in their attempted coup.
Everything will be relevant in the Senate trial, and everyone, no exceptions, should be subpoenaed and interrogated under oath. That means Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Brennan, James Comey, Peter Strzok, and the entire gang behind the coup.
In some ways it has already backfired.
🚨IMPEACHMENT BACKFIRE NIGHTMARE🚨
Democrat Impeachment threat has boomeranged massively.
This quarter the @realDonaldTrump campaign raised:
– Has $156M cash on hand
– Over a quarter *billion* dollars raised to date
– Dems can't point to a single law broken by Trump

Dems are playing with fire.
They’re going to get burned.
