Donald Trump and his legal team are gearing up for a Senate impeachment trial that will set the stage for the 2020 re-election campaign.

Everyone in Washington is trying to figure out how impeachment will factor in to answering the question of if the President can win a second term.

But Trey Gowdy let Sean Hannity in on one secret about Trump that blew his mind.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally tapped out and announced she would send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

Pelosi claimed withholding the articles was leverage to allow Democrats to secure commitments to allow witnesses at the trial and to see the rules of the trial before naming impeachment managers.

In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy explained to viewers at home why Pelosi’s gambit failed.

“The good news is the senators that I talk to on a regular basis under the leadership of Mitch McConnell are not falling for Nancy Pelosi’s trick,” Gowdy told Hannity. “She can send them and they’ll do what they want, but they are not moved by this three-week pause that she’s engaged in.”

Gowdy then went on to explain the true meaning of impeachment.

The former South Carolina Congressman stated that Democrats pursuing impeachment meant that they were waving the white flag of surrender in the Presidential election.

Gowdy went on to reveal that the Democrats’ true goal was to use impeachment to damage swing state Republican Senators running for re-election so Chuck Schumer could seize power.

“There is no mathematical way he’s ever going to be convicted and they know that,” Gowdy said. “So their goal cannot be to remove Donald Trump from office. It is to neuter his second term.”

Gowdy warned that a Democrat Senate would grind Trump’s second term to a halt.

Democrats could reject all cabinet appointments and block all Trump judicial nominees for years in hopes a Democrat wins the 2024 election.

“If Trump wins and he doesn’t have the Senate, then he’s not going to get any judicial vacancies filled. He’s not going to replace a Supreme Court justice if he or she retires. He’s not going to get the foreign policy he wants. He’s not going to get the cabinet he wants,” Gowdy said. “So I never thought this was about removing Donald Trump because they’re not going to do it.”

The stakes for the 2020 election could not be higher.

Donald Trump’s greatest accomplishment is remaking the federal judiciary with a record number of appointments.

The President’s judicial nominees are all young conservatives that will be handing down rulings that shape American life in the 2060s.

And Democrats hope to choke off that success by using impeachment to win back control of the United States Senate.
