We all knew this was the real reason for impeachment.
During a recent appearance on CNN, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) confessed that Democrats want to impeach President Trump to prevent him from ever running for president again.
According to Breitbart, “I don’t think they’ll all fall in line. I don’t think that Mitch McConnell is going to whip his caucus, and he has got a pretty divided caucus. You know, the thing is, Don, that thing impeachment trial, which is very different from the first impeachment trial, is this trial, we were all witnesses. We were there. We heard the president. We heard what he said. We saw what happened.”
“And so, yes, we need to decide whether the president, in fact, incited an insurrection on another branch of government,” Hirono went on to say. “And I say that has what happened. That is impeachable. The second part that’s important, Don, is to prevent the president from ever holding public office again.”
