Trump has floated the idea of possibly creating a new political party in the past, seeing as how Republicans have been ineffectual at best and downright traitorous at worst. This party was set to be some sort of “Patriot Party.”
Many of the former president’s most fervent supporters have greeted the proposal with pleasure since they believe the establishment GOP to be a major obstacle to instituting meaningful change in Washington.
However, there are reports that Trump has now reconsidered the idea. It is believed that he may have been talked out of it.
The Impeachment Threat
Recently, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump an unprecedented second time because he allegedly incited the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
These charges are provably bogus, as even the FBI admits that the storming of the Capitol was planned in advance, the New York Times has shown that there were people initiating the siege even before Trump had finished speaking that day — making it impossible for him to have incited the action — and the DOJ has arrested BLM activists like John Sullivan in connection with the violence.
There is also video evidence of crowds of Trump supporters finding agents provocateurs from BLM and Antifa amid their ranks and of police ushering protestors into the Capitol building, indicating that there is much more to the events of Jan. 6 than the mainstream media has led us to believe.
Moreover, FOIA requests made by John Solomon to the DC police for information about the riot have been denied, leading to speculation that the police may have ultimately been involved in what happened.
Regardless of all of this, Democrats — now in control of both the House and the Senate — seem determined to press on with impeachment. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to deliver articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate on Monday, Jan. 25, and a trial is scheduled to begin.
Legal experts have soundly denounced this, saying that it is blatantly unconstitutional to impeach an official when he is no longer in office. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has concurred with this assessment, penning an op-ed in which he called the push a “charade” which should be “dismissed.”
“The Constitution says two things about impeachment — it is a tool to remove the officeholder, and it must be presided over by the chief justice of the Supreme Court. If Justice Roberts is not presiding over this, then it is not impeachment,” said Paul.
Is Trump in the Clear?
However, according to Maggie Habermas, multiple sources have now said that Trump has been assured that he will not be impeached. This has reportedly led him to shift his focus to the 2022 midterms and to another presidential run under the GOP banner in 2024.
Since these promises — assuming they were really made at all — came from the establishment, it’s not clear how much they can be trusted.
