From The Hill:

Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said he believes “we’re closer to impeachment now than we think” during a discussion on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday.

Castellanos, who also serves as a CNN contributor, suggested that if Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore wins a special election next week, he could become the face of the party and hurt GOP candidates in next fall’s midterm elections.

Asked by Stephanopoulos if special council Robert Mueller “posed an existential threat” to the President Trump given former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea on Friday, the veteran strategist said “I don’t see that yet.”

“All we have seen is charges for tax evasion and lying to the FBI. You know, only in Washington is it an industry that people go to jail for covering up crimes they don’t commit as a standard procedure,” he said.

“But combined two converging currents, the Mueller investigation, looking for that obstruction of justice charge, and then Alabama,” he continued. “Roy Moore coming to the Senate possibly in a week. And he becomes the face of the Republican Party for the next year when we’re already in danger of losing the House. It’s likely we’ll do that without him, lose the House. Trump gets impeached.”

Somehow, Green’s jets over Trump’s NFL comment have cooled. And so, meet his new charge against the Commander-in-Chief: Trump’s retweeting of three Muslim videos — “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!” “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!” and “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”

Green responded with indignation, stating on November 29th:

“When hate emanates from the presidency the solution is impeachment. Impeachment will be voted on before Christmas.”

And the very next day, seemingly in the same suit (and still “rising”):

“Next week, there will be a vote to impeach the Bigot-In-Chief. Our constituents expect us to eliminate — not tolerate — hate!”

Let’s hope Castellanos is dead wrong. No need to worry about Dem. Rep. Al Green calling a vote to impeach Trump. He’s full of hot air.
