Pierson: Impeachment Talk Just Goes to Show Democrats Are in Disarray
Just over five weeks into the Trump administration, some Democrats are intensifying their opposition to President Trump.
Two members of the House, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), have even gone so far as to suggest that impeachment is in order.
Ellison and Waters have questioned Trump's failure to properly divest himself from his business interests and his alleged ties to Russia.
On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Katrina Pierson, a former Trump spokesperson, said that the Democratic Party is in disarray, so they're just grasping at straws.
She pointed out that the election of former Labor Secretary Tom Perez over Ellison as new DNC chair highlights the ongoing split between the establishment and far-left wing of the party.
"What do you do? You attack Donald Trump with more 'fake news' about Russia, you talk about impeachment, thinking it's going to rile up [your] base, even though it's entirely impossible," Pierson said.
Democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov acknowledged that the more progressive parts of the Democratic base are intent on opposing Trump at every turn, which is not necessarily helpful to regaining the House, Senate or White House.
"But we can win in 2018 and 2020 on the issues," Tarlov argued.
