In a New Republic piece today, Jeet Heer writes as to what he calls “The Democrats’ Dangerous Obsession with Impeachment.” I don’t think it’s dangerous to hope for impeachment, but it’s dangerous to trust that impeachment comes quickly or rapidly. Listed here is Crispin Sartwell at Splice Today:
Republicans in Congress took many grief for maybe not jumping-off the Trump train, though naturally a lot of them have. But he’s got alienated quite a few. There’s likely to be that moment, that tale, or that defection which starts all of them stampeding when you look at the other-direction, and I also think it’ll happen next few weeks. They’ll abruptly observe how they may be able disassociate on their own from him, and additionally they’ll instantly see that they’d better. Then they’ll wish him gone rapidly, before jockeying starts for 2020. They’ll threaten him with impeachment within the hopes that he’ll resign. If he doesn’t, they’ll impeach him and remove him from company, and be warranted in doing so. Or at the least, I think that’s a likely situation.
No, it’s not a most likely situation.
