Democrats haven’t learned their lesson on impeachment.
Sounds like they’re trying to ramp up impeachment charges again over President Donald Trump daring to make a comment about the sentencing of Roger Stone.
While it’s not a good idea for the president to comment in an ongoing matter, the DOJ has already said that there was no contact between them and the president. The DOJ has the right to decide whether a sentence is appropriate.
What Democrats should be more concerned about was the excessive 7-9 year sentence to begin with, how it appears to have been considerably more than you would have normally for a first offender and enhanced when there was no real threat. A prosecutor has an obligation to the law and to justice, not just to try to stick it to Stone because he was a friend of the president.
But trust them to once again try to spin things to attack.
But liberal media didn’t ask Democrats whether they’d learned their lesson. Instead, they asked Trump if he had learned anything from his impeachment.
Q: What lesson did you learn from impeachment?"
President Trump: "That Democrats are crooked… That they’re vicious. That they shouldn't have brought impeachment and my poll numbers are 10 points higher because of fake news."

From Daily Wire:
“Lisa Murkowski earlier said that you shouldn’t have gotten involved with the Roger Stone case, she said it’s just bad,” a reporter said. “Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment. What lesson did you learn from impeachment?”
Trump responded, “That the Democrats are crooked, they’ve got a lot of crooked things going, that they’re vicious, that they shouldn’t have brought impeachment and that my poll numbers are 10 points higher because of fake news like NBC, which reports that news very inaccurately, probably more inaccurately than CNN if that’s possible.”
Now that’s a boom.
Trump is often not pretty, but he doesn’t mince words and he’s right on the money with that description. He also took another little shot at MSNBC, calling them “MSDNC.”
Trump further reminded them that he and the GOP had fantastic turnout again in the New Hampshire primary last night, as they had had in the caucuses in Iowa.
