Varney: After Soleimani’s Killing, Where does this leave impeachment?

Only if you wrote the House Democrats actions into a daytime soap opera, could you find an audience that might believe some of the plot.

Think of what they have and haven’t done: They rushed to impeachment Donald Trump because he is a ‘dangerous’ President, and now they holding off passing it to the Senate because of ‘unfairness’ (Waah!). Now that same President has had two of the top two terrorist organizers in the world taken off the stage.

FOX’s Stewart Varney is asking a very pointed question about their present self-inflicted dilemma.

With the markets roiling over the specter of war with Iran, Varney wondered aloud on Friday morning whether the assassination of one of Iran’s top leaders would provide a “temporary interruption” to the bull market or if this is “something that will go on for some time to come.”

“What happens to the price of gasoline in America, as the price of oil goes up?” Varney added. “On the world market? Will we now halt the decline in gas prices and start to see them rise?”

The conservative Fox Business anchor then shifted to the political ramifications of the president’s actions, asking how Democrats will react to this over the coming weeks and months.

After saying Democrats had a “difficult political row to hoe” by urging caution and warning that killing Soleimani could be reckless, Varney suggested that the impeachment of Trump may need to be scrapped due to impending war.

“And where does it leave impeachment?” Varney asked. “Are we now going to try to impeach and remove from office the commander-in-chief who’s just taken out one of the world’s leading terrorists? That’s quite a question, I suggest.” (CONTINUE HERE)

Where does that leave the Democrats now? How can they continue with their plan? Only time will tell.
