Trump Advisor Makes Dire Prediction If Congress Impeaches Him

The word impeachment gets thrown around a ton these days. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of confusion as to how the impeachment process actually works. Simply saying the word does not make it likely to happen. The same is true even if you say it three consecutive times really fast. Impeachment is a detailed process, and it takes a long time before the first step is even reached. For starters, there has to be an actual impeachable offense. While Democrats have plenty of political talking points at their disposal to make it sound as if they have grounds for it, the reality is that they are nowhere even close.

However, let’s use our imaginations for a moment and pretend that President Donald Trump is actually impeached. How does that go over with the country? According to political consultant Roger Stone, not real well. As RealClearPolitics shares, Stone feels that Trump’s impeachment would be akin to throwing a match in a puddle of gas.

"The people who are calling for impeachment are the people who didn't vote for him. They need to get over it," Stone said while speaking to TMZ. "They lost. Their candidate had every advantage: They spent two billion dollars, we spent $275 million. Sorry, we whipped their ass. It is over. You lost."

Stone is a former advisor of Trump and a friend of the president, so he’s certainly not the most objective person to ask. However, he does offer up a dire warning as to what may come to pass if Trump is ever impeached.

"Try to impeach him. Just try it. You will have a spasm of violence -an insurrection - in this country like you have never seen before... Both sides are heavily armed, my friend," he added. "This is not 1974. People will not stand for [the impeachment of President Trump]. Any politician who votes for it would be endangering their own life."

Stone worked in the Nixon White House, so he knows a thing or two about political scandals. That being said, he may want to stick to the facts and not speculate about violence that may occur if Trump’s impeachment came to pass.

"There will be violence on both sides. Let me make this clear: I'm not advocating violence, I am predicting [violence]," he added.

Stone would then offer up this answer when he was asked if he thought that may lead the country to Civil War: "Yes, that is what I think will happen."

That’s a dire warning and a frightening assessment. In a perfect world, we’ll never get there. Unfortunately, the I-word is thrown around with such reckless abandon that it doesn’t make it completely outlandish to consider what may happen. For the moment, it would be lovely if the Democrats could find another talking point to use. Absent an actual impeachable offense, there’s no sense in even bringing it up.

If something does come up down the road, those that already think that Democrats are trying to push Trump out of office will believe it even more passionately. That’s the note that Stone was trying to hit. Let’s hope he’s off the mark on his prediction if it ever comes to pass.
