History Shows Impeachment Does Not Mean End to Trump Presidency

The left would have you believe the Democrats' impeachment inquiry will remove President Donald Trump from the White House. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. Terry Madonna is director of the Franklin & Marshall College Poll.He says of all the presidents who face impeachment, none were removed from office.

“Andrew Johnson back in 1868 survived by one vote being convicted in the Senate,” he says.“Richard Nixon resigned before the House even did an impeachment inquiry at all.”

In fact, he says President Clinton's popularity grew amid his impeachment proceedings.

“The Democrats actually gained in the 1998 midterm elections, something that historically was very difficult for a party to do, the party that had the presidency,” says Madonna.

Dr. Madonna says Democrats are using the loosely written articles of impeachment to bring down Trump, knowing they don't have the votes in the Senate to make it happen.That’s why committees are running the inquiry without a full vote by the House.

“That means Republicans would have the opportunity to call witnesses, to use subpoena party which they do not have.”
