Honest, salt-of-the-earth yokel who done made gone of himself and published a heartbreaking memoir-turned-nihilistic white nationalist Senator JD Vance sounded the alarm Monday over an “impeachment trap” looming for disgraced former President Trump in the aid bill to Ukraine should Donald be reelected, specifically prohibiting the kind of shit that got the fat fuck impeached in 2019.
Said Vance to white nationalist alcoholic Steve Bannon: “In the Ukraine First funding bill, there is funding that is mandatory through 2026. If Trump wins, as I hope he will, he’s going to be President on January of 2025. So what happens if Donald Trump decides to force Ukraine to go to the negotiating table? What if he releases some of the money but not all of the money What if he decides to do what a president has to do, which is conduct diplomacy? They will impeach him under this legislation that may very well pass tonight out of the Senate. I cannot repeat this enough, The Washington Post has already reported that the purpose of the legislation is to control Trump. What they’re trying to do is create a dynamic where if Trump follows his own campaign promises, they’re going to say it’s illegal and we have to impeach you. It’s maybe reason number one why we’ve got to kill this legislation. We cannot pass a law now that ties Trump’s hands in 2026 and gives Democrats an excuse to impeach him. But that’s what way too many Republicans are talking about doing.”
Funny story: In 2018 after Dem Tony Evers defeated douchebag incumbent Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, the GOP majority legislature used the lame duck period to steal basically every executive power that wasn’t nailed down by the state constitution, neutering Evers on an array of fronts. As shitty and fascistic as it was, and as much as Wisconsin Dems complained about it, none of them ever were worried that Evers would end up breaking the laws set forth by a gerrymandered, far right legislature that was nonetheless duly elected and legitimate. That’s not where Vance is right now politically… even when you skip the whole surrendering to Putin part.
