Donald Trump’s been one of the most pro-Israel and pro-Jewish presidents in American history.

“Indeed, when it comes to Israel and what truly matters to most non-leftist Jews worldwide, Trump has already secured a place as one of the most pro-Jewish presidents to inhabit the White House.” — Daniel Krygier, World Israel News

That said, a disproportionate number of leftist and moderate Jews have been working feverishly over the past two-and-a-half years to impeach him.

The first article of impeachment was filed in July 2017 by Brad Sherman a Jewish Democrat representative from California. Sherman accused the president of “obstructing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.”

A month later, Steve Cohen, a Jewish Democrat Representative from Tennessee, filed articles of impeachment for comments President Trump made in the aftermath of the violent clash between far-left and far-right thugs at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In January 2018, Jewish Billionaire Tom Steyer decided to forego a run for president and campaign for Trump’s impeachment instead.

“I said last year that I’m willing to do whatever I can to protect our country from this reckless, lawless and dangerous president. Therefore, I will be dedicating 100 percent of my time, effort and resources working for Mr. Trump’s impeachment and removal from office. I am not running for president at this time.” — Tom Steyer, Jewish Billionaire

Steyer poured 30 million (of the 50 million dollars he spent in 2018 to impeach Trump) into his super PAC, NextGen America to help Democrats take over the House of Representatives. Steyer dumped another $40 million into his impeachment efforts this year.

Initially only leftist Jews called for the president’s impeachment. To get the impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives off the ground, moderate, centrist, and pro-Israel Jews had to board the impeachment train, too.

In July 2019, Jewish Democrat Representative Eliot Engel of New York, an influential moderate and leader among pro-Israel lawmakers, joined the left in calling for Trump’s impeachment.

Then another influential mainstream Jewish Democrat from New York, Nita Lowey, chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, added her voice to the chorus calling for impeachment.

Engel and Lowery had opened the door for other moderate and centrist Jewish Democrats to join the impeachment chorus. Representatives Max Rose of New York, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, and Elaine Luria of Virginia voiced their support for an impeachment inquiry in the House.

Luria’s support for impeachment was noteworthy because she belonged to a group of moderate, centrist, and pro-Israel Jewish Democrat lawmakers who initially opposed the impeachment of the president.

To explain her about-face, Luria released an unusual video that was most likely directed towards Jews. The video shows Luria multiple times holding as a prop a white Hebrew bible inscribed with her name reciting the oath of office.

Tom Steyer wasn’t the only Jewish billionaire dumping his money into impeachment efforts. Billionaire left-wing activist George Soros also bankrolled the impeachment drive.

Soros has “literally paid the bills” for Norm Eisen who questioned witnesses during the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearings. Soros also backed a “dark money” group‘s multi-million-dollar ad blitz urging swing-district Republican representatives to support the Jewish-lead impeachment inquiry.

The prominence of Jews leading and cheering the impeachment parade of a duly elected President hasn’t gone completely unreported in the U.S. The Religion News Service (RNS) did point out and identified the “disproportionate number of Jewish actors in this drama.”

Nonetheless, RNS is the exception. America’s media hasn’t acknowledged the impeachment’s “elephant in the room.”

It’s readily apparent that Jews are the driving force to remove Trump from the presidency, and it’s also apparent that only Jews in the Israeli media can say it.

Israeli news outlets have not shied away from the “elephant in the room.”  The articles below have appeared in The Jewish Telegraph Agency, The Times of Israel, Haaretz, The Jerusalem Post, and Forward respectively:

The Jews Of The Impeachment Showdown: A Visual Guide

Why are so many Jewish activists, politicians, representatives, lawyers, ambassadors, and committee chairmen and witnesses trying to impeach the President of the United States and overturn the 2016 election?

And why does the chairman of the Jewish Democratic Council of America blame the president for the increased violence and antisemitism in the country; and why does nearly 60% of Jews blame him for the terrorist attacks on the synagogues in Pittsburgh and San Diego?

It’s not bigoted or racist to ask questions and look for answers to find out what’s going on. If there were a disproportionate number of Mormons, Muslims, or Masons doing what the Jews are doing to oust a sitting president, Americans would take notice.

When all three committee chairman, their lawyers, their witnesses, and nearly everyone involved in these impeachment hearings are Jewish, it’s not anti-Semitic but patriotic to call attention to the “elephant in the room.”
