Michigan Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s town hall went all wrong after she announced she would be voting to impeach President Donald Trump. The rowdy Michigan Trump supporters erupted, venting their righteous anger and shut down the person they trusted to represent them. The Michigan Congresswoman claimed she based her decision on her “friends” who are swamp creatures. Boy, the Trump supporters didn’t like that at all. Don’t miss this.
Rep. Elissa Slotkin turned out to be a swamp creature. The former CIA analyst was part of Barack Obama’s team as the senior advisor on Iraq policy at the U.S. State Department from 2009-2011. She also worked for the Director of National Intelligence during George W. Bush’s presidency.
When she left the CIA to run for Congress in 2017, she duped her constituents and campaigned as a “moderate Democrat.” She barely beat out the GOP incumbent getting just 50.6 percent of the vote. No Democrat had been elected to Michigan’s 8th District since 2001.
So, after she spoke out against the impeachment inquiry, she promised she would take last weekend to read through the “evidence” presented during the impeachment hearings. This morning she held a town hall to tell her constituents she is voting in favor of impeachment.
Slotkin cites her swamp creature buddies as her brain trust to make her decision. She also cites the Mueller report which has zero to do with this impeachment.
Trump supporters vented and shut her down by erupting in protest:
This isn’t going to end well for the Michigan Congresswoman. Perhaps she’ll retire and get a gig as a CNN political analyst. Isn’t that what the disgraced swamp creatures do?
Michigan’s GOP Chairwoman Hannah Osantowske tweeted: “Slotkin put politics above her constituents — overriding the will of the American people for her own political gain. And Michiganders have had enough. Her support of impeaching and removing @realDonaldTrump from office will be the end of her political career. #MI08.”

And Michiganders have had enough.

Another Trump supporter who lives in Michigan’s 8th District claims it’s all over for the former CIA analyst.
“Michigan voter on Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s impeachment support: ‘it’s wrong,’ ‘going to seal the deal…I will not vote for her,'” tweeted Steve Guest.

The Democrats are imploding as Congressmen jump off the impeachment train wreck.
You have Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) announcing he would be switching parties. What a real Schiff show this is turning out to be. Pennsylvania State Senator John Yudichak is joining Van Drew, leaving the Democrats to become a Republican.
There are also at least 10 Democrats who are considering voting against impeachment.
Well, usually impeachments come with real crimes. However, the Democrats buckled and refused to name anything remotely near a crime in their articles of impeachment. How else should sober-minded Americans view this sham? It’s offensive when someone like Rep. Slotkin regurgitates Democrat talking points and makes the claim this impeachment is a serious matter.
Serious matters need serious crimes. How can she vote to impeachment the president on the fake “obstruction of Congress” charge? All Trump has done is to do what any other American has a right to do as a citizen and deny participating in what he sees as a “bogus process.” The Democrats are then left to go to the courts and make their case to see if the Judicial Branch will enforce the Executive Branch to participate in impeachment.
Instead, the Democrats claimed “they couldn’t wait” to see what the third branch of government would rule. Isn’t that the Democrats abusing their power? Which is the other article of impeachment against Trump: “abuse of power.”
The Founding Fathers set up three branches of government to be a check and balance on each other. If the Legislative Branch (Congress) has an issue with the Executive Branch (President), then the very first course of action is to go to the Judicial Branch (courts).
This is exactly what Republicans did when faced with the “Fast and Furious” scandal. They did not go nuts and start impeachment and attempt to nullify millions of votes. Those of us who are Trump supporters lived through eight years of Obama. We didn’t like it, and we made a lot of noise which is our right. We set up Tea Parties and protested.
We acted as adults knowing presidents come and go. Anyone who is being honest with themselves cannot in good conscience claim this impeachment is based on facts and real crimes. It’s just another hoax that has backfired on the Democrats, big time.
