Round 2: Do Democrats Want To Impeach Donald Trump Again , On the day the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial, a headline in The Atlantic stated ,
That a second impeachment could be America’s only hope. Less than a month later, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is denouncing Trump again, saying that “it would be a blatant abuse of power if President Trump has in fact intervened to reverse the recommendations of career prosecutors at the Department of Justice.”
Schiff led the impeachment effort as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and, later, as the head of the seven impeachment managers in the Senate trial.
The California Democrat condemned, as an abuse of power, Trump’s tweet about supporter Roger Stone’s impending sentencing in federal court. Abuse of power was one of the House’s two articles of impeachment against Trump in the Ukraine matter.
“Adam Schiff seems to believe everything Trump does is an abuse of power,” Curt Levey, a constitutional lawyer and president of the Committee for Justice, told The Daily Signal.
“Democrats will be smart enough not to impeach him again for the same charge,” Levey said. “But if we take Schiff at his word—which might be a mistake—even if it was a legitimate acquittal, if he thinks the Senate trial was a sham that would give Democrats even more standing in their minds to impeach again.”
Lawyer and pundit George Conway wrote in The Washington Post this week that the House should impeach Trump again, this time for removing Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council staff and transferring him to a job in the Pentagon. Vindman testified against Trump during the House impeachment hearings.
