    Surge Summary: One week before a new president is sworn in, vengeful Democratic officials are determining whether they will be attempting to impeach current President Donald Trump now or after he leaves office — even though it’s questionable that’s even possible.

    President Trump made it clear in his remarks last week that he was focused on a smooth and orderly transition of power.  He also called for calm, healing and reconciliation.  But the left doesn’t seem interested in calm, healing or reconciliation.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that House Democrats will pass a resolution calling for President Trump to be removed through the 25th Amendment.  That’s not going to happen, and Pelosi knows it.

    So, she’s also planning to bring articles of impeachment to the House floor later this week.  According to Politicoat least 218 House Democrats support impeaching the president for allegedly inciting violence.  But that’s not going anywhere either.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell noted that the Senate is in recess and cannot hold an impeachment trial until January 19th at the earliest, potentially overshadowing the inauguration and bogging down the Senate for days.

    Faced with these realities, House Majority Whip James Clyburn said that Speaker Pelosi would likely delay transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate, just as she did last year.

    “Let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running,” Clyburn said. “And maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”

    While it’s debatable whether former officials can be impeached, Pelosi was clear about her motivation.  The speaker said in an interview with “60 Minutes” this weekend that “one of the motivations that people have for advocating for impeachment” is to prevent Trump from running for office again, adding, “He has to pay a price.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez echoed Pelosi’s desire to ban Trump from the political arena, saying, “We’re also talking about complete barring of . . . Donald Trump from running for office ever again.”

    Joe Biden should tell Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats to stand down.  Pushing impeachment with just barely a week left in the president’s term will do nothing to help heal or unite this country.
