Booker Calls for Impeachment Amid Polling Nose Dive

A U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential candidate called for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment Wednesday as his poll numbers continue to slide.

“Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said. “I’ve been asking for Mueller’s testimony—today he made his views clear.”

Booker later repeated his call for Trump’s impeachment.

“This Administration has continued to stonewall Congress’s oversight. Beginning impeachment proceedings is the only path forward,” he said.

Booker’s pandering to the far-left, which continues to hang on to hopes of impeachment, is perhaps a reflection of his low poll numbers. This week, his polling average was only three percent, putting the one-time Democratic Party superstar in sixth place nationally. He is currently polling lower than inexperienced candidates like Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, and South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Wednesday morning, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller officially ended his probe into the Trump campaign’s alleged “collusion” during the 2016 election, which came up empty. He did, however, take a subtle swipe at the president on his way out the door, alleging that if his office had evidence that Trump’s campaign had not committed any crimes, it would have explicitly stated that.

Big League Politics reported:

FBI spook Robert Mueller closed up his “nothing burger” today, formally ending his special counsel, and resigning from the Department of Justice during a brief 10-minute press conferencein front of reporters in Washington D.C.

“I’m speaking out today because our investigation is complete,” Mueller said. “The Attorney General has made the report on our investigation largely public. We are formally closing the special counsel’s office, and as well, I am resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”

Mueller noted that “it is important for the office’s written work to speak for itself.”

He noted that Russians did use sophisticated attacks on our electoral infrastructure, crediting them with giving information to WikiLeaks, and damaging the candidacy of a particular presidential candidate – obviously referring to Hillary Clinton. He also credited some social media posts by Russians for influencing the election.

Mueller talked about obstruction as well, giving a vague diatribe against obstruction but not implicating Trump or anyone close to him as being guilty of the crime.

“We did not… make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime,” Mueller said.

He noted that charging the President for a criminal act was “not an option we could consider.”
