Dems should fight Trump at ballot box, not battle over his tax returns

President Trump is entitled to serve out his first term and entitled to run for re-election, whether the Democrats like it or not. It’s time for the endless Democratic attempts to obstruct the will of American voters to stop.

Democrats have spent Trump’s entire presidency grasping at straws in a forlorn quest to overturn the result of the 2016 election. The current calls for impeachment and disclosure of the president’s tax returns are nothing more than a continuation of the Democrats’ failed attempts to derail his presidency.

With only 47 seats in the 100-member Senate, Democrats know they will never get the 67 Senate votes needed to convict Trump on impeachment charges and force him from office. But impeachment proponents see the effort as a way of weakening the president and making it more likely that they will defeat him for re-election in November 2020.

Calls for impeachment are merely a Democratic PR stunt designed to set up televised hearings that will fill the airwaves for weeks with unfounded accusations about the president.

This blatant political play is tremendously unfair to Trump. But, even more importantly, it is an insult to voters and an attack on the legitimacy of the constitutional system by which the American people chose Trump be our president.
