Rep. Jim Jordan just made an excellent point about the Democrats and impeachment.
During an appearance on FOX News, he said it all comes down to their continued refusal to accept the results of the 2016 election.
Jim Jordan: Dems Are Impeaching Because They ‘Have Never Accepted the Will of the American People’
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, once again laid into House Democrats for the impeachment inquiry into President Trump during his Fox News interview on Tuesday.
“This whole thing is built on what Nancy Pelosi said two weeks ago Sunday, when she called the president of the United States an ‘imposter.’ They have never accepted the fact that 63 million Americans voted for Donald Trump on November 8, 2016 and made him president. He won an electoral college landslide,” Jordan said.
“That underscores what they’re trying to do. They have never accepted the will of the American people and they’ve gone to this crazy impeachment strategy that we’ve seen unfold now for the last several months,” he continued.

The bad-faith impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats are trying to remove President Trump from office “prayerfully,” “sadly,” and “with a heavy heart.” In fact, as anyone who has been watching knows, many Democrats have been itching to impeach Trump since the day he took office.
The fact that they have long wanted to impeach the president suggests those Democrats view the Trump-Ukraine matter as just the latest, and perhaps the best, chance to get the president. And that calls into question their good faith in claiming that, despite deep reluctance, they must impeach now — right this minute — because it is their solemn constitutional duty.
From its earliest days, the Democratic quest to remove Trump has resembled the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Democrats in hot pursuit of the elusive Trump proposed to remove him for virtually any sin that came to mind, only to see their efforts foiled.
Democrats have been operating in bad faith since election night 2016.
