(National Sentinel) No Payback: The independent counsel who investigated former President Bill Clinton for years — and who was around during Clinton’s impeachment by the House — is warning Democrats eying the same ‘remedy’ for POTUS Donald Trump they should “be careful what [they] ask for.”
“And part of the message in my book is be careful what you ask for. Because I do think that impeachment is hell,” Starr, who is promoting his new memoir, “Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation,” told Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Lifezette reported.
“It’s hell to go through for the American people. Even though there are very strong feelings on one side and then on the other side, that is not our system,” Starr noted further.
His warning comes as unhinged Lefty Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California continues to scream for POTUS Trump’s impeachment, despite the fact that he hasn’t done anything to warrant it.
Clinton, by comparison, lied to Congress and investigators and then obstructed justice regarding his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and — like it or not — he at least committed an actual crime. The Senate, of course, did not vote to convict (and remove him from office).
Ingraham noted that Clinton’s popularity soared after he was impeached, and she asked Starr if he thought the same thing would happen to POTUS Trump.
“Well, it could very well happen,” Starr said. “We have impeachment in the Constitution. It’s an important last resort. And the country did not feel as a whole that Bill Clinton, for all of his crimes — and he committed crimes, and we proved that he committed crimes — that he should actually be removed in his last year and a half in office.”
“We have elections in the country, and those elections mean something,” Starr added. “Why in the world are the Democrats — some of the Democrats — seriously discussing impeachment? I think it’s folly. But that’s the politics. I just think it’s very bad for the country. It is ultra-divisive.”
First thing’s first. Democrats have to have a “blue wave” in order to win enough majorities in both chambers of Congress in order to fulfill their sick fantasy about removing POTUS Trump from office.
Good luck with that.
POTUS Trump toyed with Waters Tuesday, pointing out his one yuuuge success thus far: The exploding U.S. economy.
Crazy Maxine Waters: “After we impeach Trump, we’ll go after Mike Pence. We’ll get him.” @FoxNews Where are the Democrats coming from? The best Economy in the history of our country would totally collapse if they ever took control!
