Here’s the 11 fundraising emails the DCCC sent invoking the nonexistent threat of impeachment

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has been really busy over the last few days. As noted in a separate post, the White House and Democrats really want Americans to think that House Republicans are seriously considering impeaching President Barack Obama.

The DCCC did this in June, too. The House Democrats’ campaign arm sent out several emails after Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced that he planned to file a lawsuit on behalf of the lower chamber over President Obama’s extraordinary abuse of executive power. The fundraising push worked. The DCCC boasted a $10.9 million haul in June, while the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) raised $9.6 million.

House Republican leaders are, of course, not serious about impeachment. They know that it’s not a smart political strategy, especially in an election year. But you wouldn’t know that from the 11 fundraising emails the DCCC has sent out since Friday morning.

And the money will almost certainly keep coming in. Like House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said yesterday on Fox News Sunday, this “might be the first White House in history trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president.” And it’s pretty ridiculous.
