Democrat lawmakers are making a last-ditch effort to placate their party’s unhinged base, as they hold “mock impeachment” hearings today. This morning, as the Democrat lawmakers in the House, began their fake impeachment hearings on President Donald J. Trump, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) educated Americans about the truth behind their charade.
In his opening statement, ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) reminded Americans that they are watching a mock presidential impeachment trial. Collins compared the fake trial to filters his kids use on Instagram photos to change their appearance. “What’s happened today, is that the Judiciary Committee has become a giant Instagram filter—to make it appear that something’s happening that’s not,” he said. Collins continued to mock his fellow legislators, “The difference between formal impeachment hearings, and what we’re doing here today, is a world apart, no matter what the Chairman just said.”
“The filter may make you think something’s happening, but really, what we have is a walk down the Yellow Brick Road,” Collins told the committee members.
Collins used The Wizard of Oz to wrap up his analogy, “The Emerald City is impeachment, and my colleagues are desperate to get there—they have been desperate since last November when they won the majority.”
Collins went on to explain how the Democrats have ignored Russian interference in the election ever since they discovered Trump wasn’t involved in Russian election interference.
I’ve waited a long time to say this, “Welcome to Fantasy Island!” Collins exclaimed.
Today’s ambiguity is a product of the chairman’s own making because there is an easy way to know exactly whether this committee is in #impeachment proceedings: It’s called a vote. A vote of the full House of Representatives.

Will these fake impeachment hearings help or hurt Democrats chances in 2020? Have the Democrats turned off American voters?
