Since the night he shocked the world by defeating Hillary Clinton, left-wing activists have fantasized about impeaching Donald Trump. This obsession has driven many of these otherwise lucid individuals to lunacy as they desperately peddle baseless conspiracy theories about Russia hacking the election in order to justify their fervent partisan desire to destroy Trump.
Looking for anything to latch onto, liberals who almost unilaterally called for the firing of FBI Director James Comey just a few short months ago decided that the most damning thing President Trump has done in office so far was… to fire FBI Director James Comey.
Many liberals and progressive media outlets are preparing the way for impeachment by comparing the Comey firing to Watergate:

Naturally, rabid LGBT activist George Takei (of Star Trek fame and little else) called specifically for impeachment:
You know one easy way for Trump to obstruct justice? Fire anyone who might actually bring him to it. #ImpeachTrump

And according to Jonathan Easley at The Hill, Democrats in Congress are seriously considering it:
Speaking on a conference call organized by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) and Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) said Comey’s firing would unite Democrats in an effort to impeach the president.
The Democrats said they would first need to prove Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice or criminal malfeasance in colluding with a foreign government.
Pocan said that if Democrats had an “impeachment clock” like the “doomsday clock” meant to warn of nuclear war, it would have just moved one hour closer to midnight.
“We always, as we talk to people, say [impeachment] is one of the tools we have on the table to try and get the administration to do the right thing,” Pocan said.
If there was any question prior to this, it’s clear now — the Democrats are willing to do anything they can to stop Trump from being successful, turning every miniscule story into the Scandal Of The Century, even if they have to push #FakeNews conspiracy theories to do it.
Nobody said making America great again would be easy.
