The release of the Mueller report may have cleared President Trump of being in cahoots with the Kremlin but the demolition of the biggest hoax in American political history isn’t going to stop the impeachment fanatics.
The media has led the way in moving the goal posts from collusion to obstruction and some plan on cherry picking the special counsel’s conclusions to fuel their own investigations and to move forward with the process of lynching the duly elected POTUS.
The party’s de facto leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly announced to her batty legions of Twitter followers that she would be joining fellow freshman extremist Rashida Tlaib’s jihad to impeach the “motherf*cker” and controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar also joined the mob.
Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.
It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.

Impeachment is part of our constitutional responsibility. We have an obligation to investigate whether the President committed impeachable offenses, including:
-Obstruction of justice
-Violating the Emoluments Clause
-Abuse of power https://t.co/Sq907gs7eF

The one thing with fanatics is that they are unwavering in their beliefs and cannot be reasoned with because their only goal is to burn it all down.
The socialist revolutionaries and their Congressional Black Caucus allies aren’t going to simply move on to matters that the American people – including their own actual constituents – really care about but Mueller has provided the remaining adults in the party one last opportunity to get the haters under control.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer who is among the last of the old guard Democrats clinging to power has thrown water on the impeachment dead-enders with the heretical suggestion to avoid what could be a catastrophe and focus on issues that are important to real voters outside the toxic atmosphere of the anti-Trump bubble.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Thursday that nothing he saw in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report would make seeking to impeach President Trump a “worthwhile” effort “at this point.”
Hoyer made the remarks to CNN’s Dana Bash following the Justice Department’s release of Mueller’s partially redacted findings in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer told CNN. “Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgement.”
Hoyer’s remarks follow those of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who earlier this week dismissed the entire sordid hot mess by saying that Americans are more concerned about “kitchen table issues” than whatever was in the Meuller report.

It may, however, be too late to stop this runaway train because let’s face it, the party’s fury over Trump’s beatdown of Hillary has not been diminished and there will be no peace until she has been avenged even if it splinters the Democratic party into warring factions.
That may already be underway because Hoyer’s attempted course correction didn’t go over well with the so-called resistance who angrily punched their objections to such a suggestion into their iPhones.
Now is not a time to be fucking cowardly and weak. https://t.co/vuqUnlPfBD

The Steny Hoyer quote is just unreal.

They'd be able to make a better "judgement" in 18 months if Hoyer and co grew a backbone and held impeachment hearings… https://t.co/4ybuP4cTld

This is cowardice. Impeachment hearings are plainly the right thing to do, even if the Senate won't convict. This is a simple ask and a basic responsibility and a party incapable of fulfilling it can't be relied on to address the more daunting challenges we face. https://t.co/WWvTgqg064

Are people calling Steny Hoyer's office? Call Steny Hoyer's office.

Hoyer is absolutely correct. But his advice will not be heeded by Hillary loyalists who want their blood vengeance on Trump as well as others who see impeachment as a way to remove him from the equation before voters go to the polls and pick between a powerful incumbent and whichever one of the zanies survives a grueling primary process for the Dems.
Good luck with this one buddy!
