A major takeaway from Episode 6 of War Room: Impeachment is that current proceedings are not just an attempt to undermine President Trump and his America first agenda but are a disgrace to the Constitution, specifically the president’s core powers.
Bannon describes: “You can have a difference of opinion about America first. You can have differences of opinion about the direction of American foreign policy and national security policy. But that’s not what this is about. This is about trying to take the power away from the office of the president.”
He continues: “We are hurtling into a constitutional crisis, and we are being forced there by a group of radicals in the House of Representatives that have been triggered by this anti-Trump hatred that has made them irrational, and they’re going to put the country in peril. Forget the opportunity cost of not focusing on getting the new NAFTA, USMCA passed, legislation about China, Hong Kong, prescription drugs, or our economy. The country is going to be driven into crisis by a set of radicals on sophisticated political warfare ran by Nancy Pelosi.”
Voting to impeach is “not about Donald Trump. You’re going to be voting against the office of the presidency.”
“The level of anti-Trump animosity bordering on derangement is so high that it warps people’s judgement.”
His op-ed cites Alexis de Tocqueville’s prophetic words: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”
