The opposition party always believes they have the silver bullet to bring down the President.
When Obama was president, the silver bullet was his birth certificate. If what was released by the White House was found to be a forgery, that in an of itself would be highly problematic. (Imagine that Trump finally released his tax returns, and they were found to be a forgery. How would liberals react to that?) Even more so problematic to then-President Obama would be proving that he wasn’t even born in the U.S.
(As it turns out, now that Obama is gone, his half-brother Malik released an image of a birth certificate allegedly of his brother Barack, and it was from Kenya.)
The reason these silver bullets don’t often work against presidents is not because of lack of evidence. It has nothing to do with evidence or facts. Presidents have the benefit of ‘fixers,’ and in the case of Obama, he additionally had most of the media on his side – perhaps at the price of bribery – to push the ‘conspiracy theorist’ label on anyone raising questions about his birth certificate.
Needless to say, no matter how much of a slam-dunk case Republicans thought it was going to be, nothing happened. Nothing stuck.
Now that Trump is president, the Democrats think the silver bullet to bring Trump down is Russia. They are so sure that investigations will reveal so much collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia that Trump will have no choice but to step down. The ‘birther’ ‘conspiracy theory’ had more evidence than Trump’s nefarious Russia ‘connections.’
Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) believes that Trump “will be eligible for impeachment” once the investigations into him are complete. She even thinks that the Trump dossier published by BuzzFeed has enough credibility that it needs to be studied and analyzed. But she said that the ‘sex actions’ parts of the Trump dossier are ‘absolutely true.’
