Great News: The Ruminator Tells Us Mexico Offered to Pay for Trump’s Impeachment

Will Trump be impeached? It's less likely than some are suggesting (Washington Post)

Marking a potentially dramatic turnaround in rocky U.S.-Mexico relations, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on has offered to pay for President Trump’s impeachment instead of a $21.6 billion border wall separating the two nations.

“We would pay for the ‘whole enchilada,’” Peña Nieto told reporters on the steps of the National Palace in Mexico City. “Impeachment is far cheaper than a border wall, and frankly, no one will want an expensive border wall after Trump’s gone, anyway.”

Budget deficit hawks and some GOP leaders welcomed Peña Nieto’s offer, which comes amid growing calls for Trump’s impeachment for his part in a series of scandals that has rocked Washington and plunged the White House into chaos.

“While the cost of impeachment is just a drop in the bucket of the multi-trillion dollar federal budget, every little bit helps,” said Sen. John McCain, effusively praising the Mexican financial offer at a news conference. “And it’s time to get this idiot out of office anyway.”

The latest scandal broke Tuesday with reports that Trump allegedly asked former FBI director James Comey to end the criminal investigation into Trump’s then national security advisor, Michael Flynn. The news fueled accusations the White House obstructed justice. On Monday, news broke that Trump may have leaked highly classified information to Russian spies in the Oval Office, prompting outrage from Democrats and even some Republicans.
