Delusional Left-wing Professor: "There's More Than Enough Evidence to Impeach Trump" has been extra busy sending out eblasts to raise money.

They are desperate to have at least one Democratic win in the sea of special elections.

They need to demonstrate that left-wing thought can still flex some relevant muscle in American politics, even though Americans are tired of having left-wing talking points and progressive politics shoved down their throats. The working men and women of Middle America are tired of being shamed just because they are ... Americans.

Or because they are working.

Or because they are Middle Class.

Or because they are white.

Or because they own guns.

Or because they read their Bibles.

The arrogance of the Obama Administration, the destructive agenda of the illiberal activists and bureaucrats, had so angered the widespread American electorate, they were ready for Trump.

They voted for the end to political correctness, and for the resurgence of American correctness.

And that's they way it should be.

Of course, arrogant, out of touch liberal elites like Robert Reich just can't stand the vast majority of "uneducated" Americans who love their country and do not want to see their nation, their homeland turned into a second-tier European wasteland.

Too bad!

The Left has lost all moral compass. They have no capacity for restraint.

And according to the latest eblast from, they are completely out of touch with reality.

Yes, Reich actually believes that there is evidence to justify the impeaching of President Donald Trump. Even though every major player in the wannabe Russia scandal, the obstruction of justice scandal, the email hacking, the DNC fraud scandals have all testified, and Democrats and Republican agree that there is no evidence of collusion.

Reich must have Trump impeached!

Yet even if Trump does get impeached--how does anyone expect 67 US Senators to vote to remove him from office?!

They are insane.

"Must impeach Trump! Must Impeach Trump!

But don't take my word for it. Check out the first part of the last eblast:

Dear MoveOn member,
Let's talk about impeachment.
Yes, and how Democrats will never hope to accomplish it. They do not have the majority in the House, and even the most anti-Trump of Republican House Reps would never lift a finger to help move the impeachment forward.
It just won't happen. The House seats across the country are too closely gerrymandered to permit them that kind of freedom. Most Republican House reps are more worried about a primary challenge than a general election fight.
There's more than enough evidence to begin an impeachment inquiry to remove Donald Trump from office.

The three previous impeachment inquiries in the House (involving presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton) rested on less evidence than is already publicly known about Trump—and on issues far less serious than the Trump team's possible collusion with a foreign adversary to win the election and Trump's subsequent attempted cover-up.
The impeachment of Andrew Johnson was brazenly political. The Republicans in the US Senate ultimately did not impeach Johnson, even though they opposed him. Most history buffs and civics students forget to this day that Johnson was not a Republican, but a Democrat whom the embattled Abraham Lincoln brought onto the 1864 ticket to ensure that Union Democrats would vote for his re-election.
But impeachment is a political process. Republicans will support impeachment only if they think that they'll lose their jobs by enabling Trump's transgressions. And even if it does take Democrats until the 2018 elections to take back control of the House and pass an impeachment resolution, we have to start pushing now and be ready to go the moment we take back power. 
As I mentioned above, Republicans are more worried about a primary challenge than a general election contest. If they vote to impeach President Trump, they can kiss their re-election bids good-bye. The RNC has raised a record amount of money, and even the most embattled Republicans, almost all of them in California, voted to repeal Obamacare, knowing full well that they would face the wrath of the organized Left-Win AstroTurf group Indivisible. Jeff Denham and Darrell Issa face the toughest re-election bids, but even in California, in an off-year election, they are more likely to hold onto their seats.
That's why I was thrilled that last week MoveOn joined the call for Trump to be impeached. We need MoveOn to help build and sustain a massive amount of pressure on vulnerable Republicans to impeach Trump. It's not going to be easy, but the very future of our democracy hangs in the balance.
Now, why would call for the impeachment of the President?
To raise money!
So I have a simple request: Will you join me in chipping in $5 a month to MoveOn to help give them the resources to ramp up and then sustain their efforts to impeach Trump?
For more evidence that the Left has left all of its senses, there's the consequences of a Pence Presidency to consider:
I hear some progressives say, "But Mike Pence is just as bad as Trump."

Yes, Pence is ultra far-right. As a progressive, I disagree with him on absolutely everything. But we know what to expect from Pence, and we can fight him on the issues. He's not the irresponsible and unpredictable man who currently sits in the Oval Office. (And, anyway, getting to the bottom of Trump's web of lies and cover-ups could very well take down multiple people in the White House, including Pence, or in the case of a Trump impeachment or resignation, leave a greatly diminished, compromised, lame-duck Pence in his stead.) 
The logic--or rather, illogic--is astounding. They fear Trump, calling him unpredictable, but Reich would welcome a Pence Presidency, even though he is far more likely to govern conservatively than any previous Republican administration in history, including Reagans's. The Democrats will wonder what they were thinking when Pence negotiates even more effective conservative reforms, and the liberal lunacy in Washington will have no political capital to spend.

And some Democrats in Congress say that we have to wait to pursue impeachment until Democrats take back the House in 2018.

Rubbish. It's absolutely the reverse.

The path to winning in 2018 (and thereafter) begins with Democrats in Congress showing the American people that they have the courage and backbone necessary to take back our nation. It means calling for the impeachment of Trump and holding politically accountable every single person in his administration and in the House and Senate who have enabled his disgrace of a presidency.

And it's not clear America can wait for the midterm elections, followed by what's likely to be a long and drawn-out impeachment investigation, followed by a trial in the Senate. Just look at the damage Trump has done in just 149 days as president. We need to act now. 
What damage, Robbie? What damage? His approval ratings are stable at 50%, and 94% of Republicans, including myself, have pledged that they would vote for Trump if the Presidential election were held today.
Plus, I'm in the camp that the "right" time to impeach isn't about when it's feasible in Congress … but about when the person in the Oval Office has committed high crimes and misdemeanors and recklessly and repeatedly violated the Constitution.
Where were you when Obama had violated numerous laws? Where were you when Obama was routinely ignoring Congress and issuing extensive, complicated executive orders in violation of our Constitution?

Final Reflection
There will be no impeachment of President Trump. Robert Reich is pushing the same hollow vanity that the left is desperate to hold to. They must find some way, anyway to get rid of Donald Trump. The notion that after 8 years  of Obama. President Trump is rolling back all the destructive, hateful, lawless policies is just too much for them. Their liberal, progressive Utopia is rolling back before their very eyes, and they can't do anything about it.
It's more than victory. It's consummate vindication for every American who was fed up, furious to see the American Dream turning into a dystopian, regressive nightmare.
And the left-wing activists and acolytes can only resort to violence and hate at this point--with long jail sentences to follow.
How much crow will the Movement have to eat overe the next three months? How much indeed? That is, of course, if they have money, property, or resources left to eat crow ...
