The bonkers Republican logic on why Trump shouldn't be impeached

As the Democratic-controlled House prepares to vote to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday for his incitement of rioters that stormed the US Capitol last week, Republican elected officials and talking heads are rolling out a fascinatingly ridiculous argument for why they oppose the move.

 

"As President @realDonaldTrump stated last night, it is time to heal and move on," tweeted South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R). "If Speaker Pelosi pushes impeachment in the last days of the Trump presidency it will do more harm than good."

 

Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady (R) put it this way: "Those calling for impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment in response to President Trump's rhetoric this week are themselves engaging in intemperate and inflammatory language and calling for action that is equally irresponsible and could well incite further violence."

 

Then there was this from Brian Kilmeade, co-anchor of "Fox & Friends" on Fox News Tuesday morning: "We see what's happening around this country, how 50 state houses are being threatened on Inauguration Day, this is the last thing you want to do," he said.

Even Trump got in on the act before leaving for the Texas border on Tuesday. "This impeachment is causing tremendous anger," he said. "I think it's causing tremendous danger to this country. ... I want no violence."

 

So, let's walk through this logic, shall we? No punitive action should be taken against the President who told a mob of his supporters that "we fight like hell and if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore" because, if that action is taken, it could lead to violence?

Er, what? Just in case anyone forgot, we already had a mob overrun the US Capitol -- incited by the President. That happened six days ago.
