Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) defeated an incumbent Republican in Michigan’s 8th Congressional district last year because of an unprecedented influx of outside money that she received due to her deep state connections, but her ties to the intelligence community may doom her chances for re-election.
Slotkin is taking the unpopular stance in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, and she announced her position publicly during a contentious town hall at Oakland University in Rochester, MI on Monday morning.
“I want people to think about where we will be if it becomes normal to ask foreign governments to intervene in our political process,” Slotkin said in an attempt to rationalize her decision.
“What if that becomes normal? What if next time we have a Democratic president asking the Chinese government for a cyberattack, for something new, for some intrusion? For me, this is something I cannot abide, that I cannot accept,” she added.

In a Detroit Free Press op/ed published on Monday, Slotkin explained her belief that the President “illegally solicited the help of foreigners to influence the American political process.” She said she came to her decision despite the fact that it is politically unpopular, perhaps as a favor to the deep state that astroturfed her political star with dirty money.
“There are some decisions in life that have to be made based on what you know in your bones is right. And this is one of those times,” Slotkin wrote.
Her constituents are turning against her rapidly due to her participation in the railroading that has taken place against the President:
Trump backers in Michigan note that Slotkin’s district is rabidly pro-Trump, and she is representing interests in Washington D.C. rather than her voters.
“Trump supporters are fed up with the impeachment process. The do nothing Democrats need to be reminded by Michigan voters that President Trump is doing a great job,” said Meshawn Maddock, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans. “Trump won this District by over 7 percentage points in 2016. Now, Slotkin appears to listen to Nancy Pelosi more than voters in the 8th District.”
“Elissa Slotkin needs to consider the reality that she won an election when President Trump was not even on the ballot,” Maddock added. “In 2020, that won’t happen. Trump will be on the ballot and the 8th District is a conservative area. 8th District voters will deliver the message to Slotkin and to Washington, D.C. about what they think. Slotkin’s lock step with radical and do nothing Democrats to support the ‘impeachment’ hoax is a poor decision.”
Recent polls have indicated that impeachment has been a boon for President Trump’s re-election chances, and he is raising massive amounts of funds off of the witch hunt conducted by Democrats. The political establishment’s illicit scheme to overturn the 2016 presidential election is backfiring tremendously.
Slotkin, who was seemingly strategically planted in Michigan’s 8th district after a working as a CIA officer and Department of Defense official, may prove to be a bad investment for the special interests that put her into office. Her career may be finished next year because of her inability to serve her constituents.
