Yes, Impeachment Will Turn America Into a Third World Country

Elections don’t work in third world countries because the party with the most leverage over the machinery of government just overturns the results. That’s exactly what the Democrats have been trying to do to Trump even during the election. 

Impeachment is not a mechanism for removing a government that the legislature now opposes. That’s what you have in parliamentary systems. Impeachment is meant to address serious crimes committed by the head of state. The Dems began pushing impeachment before Trump even took office. That’s not what impeachment is for. It’s a blatant abuse of a constitutional mechanism to stage a coup.

And using it, would be a third world tactic.

President Donald Trump told supporters at a rally in Billings, Montana, Thursday night that he would blame his impeachment on supporters who did not vote in the upcoming election, claiming such an event would turn the U.S. into a “third-world country.”

Some Democrats have pushed for impeachment if they retake both houses of Congress in the November midterms, kicking Trump out of the White House. Presidents can be impeached for treason, bribery, or “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

They can’t however be impeached for invented crimes created by a media-government alliance.
