In an Op-Ed for Florida Today, State Sen. Joe Gruters, chairman of the Florida Republican Party argues that Florida won’t forget the role of impeachment manager and Florida lawmaker Val Dennings.
This morning, per TCO, Rep. Dennings appeared on CNN with the other 6 impeachment managers and falsely claimed that in was “fake news” that Trump was acquitted.
“Well, and back to the acquittal part of this, I would consider that fake news, because we did not have a fair trial,” Florida Rep. Val Demings complained
President Trump’s agenda has delivered win after win for the American people. Since his historic 2016 election, we’ve seen record-low unemployment — including for African Americans, women, and Hispanics — over 6 million new jobs, and a foreign policy that puts America first.
Democrats understand that they have no chance of beating such a winning record at the ballot box. Desperate for political power and hell-bent on overturning the will of the 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump, they’ve turned to an un-Democratic and un-serious impeachment hoax. They know that they can’t take President Trump on, and have decided instead to try and take him down.
Florida’s own Rep. Val Demings of Orlando has taken center stage in this far-left sham as one of Nancy Pelosi’s handpicked impeachment managers. Demings wasted no time in revealing the depths of her hyper-partisanship, immediately calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s recusal from the impeachment process. This extreme view is a damning indictment of Demings’ ability to fairly adjudicate any impeachment-related matter.
It is disappointing — but perhaps unsurprising — to see Demings dive headfirst into the far-left’s circus. After all, she came out for impeachment a year before Democratic leadership did. Demings is clearly comfortable ignoring issues that actually matter to Floridians in favor of joining the left’s doomed attempt to subvert the Democratic process.
Maybe if Demings spent as much time listening to her constituents as she does chasing an impeachment pipe dream, she’d understand that impeaching President Trump is not in the interest of Floridians. Here in the Sunshine State, the Trump administration’s policies have delivered a record-low unemployment rate of 3%, with Latino unemployment also clocking in at a record-low of 4.2%.
Gov. Ron DeSantis has worked closely with President Trump to take full advantage of the Trump economy and push common sense, pro growth policies. It’s no coincidence that he’s among the most popular governors in the country.
Floridians are responding to conservative leadership with resounding approval. In light of this fact, how can Demings seriously consider impeaching our conservative president to be in the interest of her constituents?
Of course, it’s a rhetorical question. Demings, along with her comrades on the far left, is fundamentally out of touch with American voters. Public support for impeachment is dipping, prompting to frantically sound the alarm in hopes Democrats will draw themselves back from the ledge.
Unfortunately for the left, they can’t undo the damage they’ve done. Voters will remember this bad faith attempt at subverting the democratic process long after Adam Schiff spouts his last conspiracy theory.
