    Surge Summary: The Democrats’ second attempt at a lame impeachment of Donald Trump – now a former president – reveals a lot about them and other political realities — much of it very disturbing.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will finally deliver the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate later tonight.  Senate leaders have reached a deal to begin the trial the week of February 8th, three weeks after Trump left office.  Here are some observations:

    • Pelosi insisted that President Trump had to be impeached for inciting an insurrection, warning that every day he remained in office he posed “an imminent threat to our democracy.”
    • That was two weeks ago.  By delaying the formal delivery of the article of impeachment and not forcing an immediate trial while he was still in office, Pelosi seriously undercut her argument that Trump was such an “imminent threat.”
    • Pelosi had a very different view several years ago when left-wing protestors stormed the Wisconsin state legislature.  She tweeted her solidarity with the demonstrators, calling their siege “an impressive show of democracy in action.”
    • This cynical, divisive impeachment effort is further proof that the left has no interest in unity.  It’s more evidence of how vindictive the left is.  Democrats are scared of Donald Trump and afraid of facing him again in four years.
    • The whole exercise is constitutionally suspect, and more Senate Republicans are speaking out against this “impeachment of a private citizen in Florida,” as Sen. Lindsey Graham put it.
    • But not Mitt Romney.  He’s sounding like a liberal Democrat, insisting that impeachment is necessary for “unity.”  Really, Mitt?  This is the most divisive thing Democrats could possibly be doing!  I can only assume that Mitt Romney has concluded he has no higher future in the GOP.
    • In Friday’s report, we noted that thousands of National Guard troops would remain in Washington for an “enduring mission.”  Evidently, that mission involves “occupying” the capital through March for the expected duration of the Senate’s impeachment trial.
