Media outlets big and small, left and right have been busy analyzing the potential for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. They’re crunching the numbers, which currently sits at 43% of House Democrats favoring impeachment now. They’re tracking Tweets, scanning news reports, and reading other journalists’ analyses of the who Russiagate debacle.
Many on the left are trying to spin Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony before the House Judicial and Intelligence Committees this week as somehow being a positive, saying “Mueller delivered.” But few on the left are willing to acknowledge the reality, which is the vast majority of Americans, including a large number of Democrats, do not want the country to go through an impeachment process against the President. It’s not that Democrats are supporting the President. They just don’t want to see the party devolve into purely partisan attacks that have very little chance of being successful.
Impeachment would end up helping the President, and everyone other than far-left Democratic lawmakers and unhinged progressive journalists seem to know this. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is one of the remaining Democratic lawmakers who understand this, which is why she’s trying in vein to pull back on the reins of a party that threatens self-immolation.
Here’s how impeachment at this point plays out:
- Feeling the pressure, Pelosi disregards common sense and sides with the radical wing of her party out of desperation. She instructs her whole caucus to fall in line with a unified voice in favor of impeachment and against the self-preservation of moderates in tough reelection races.
- Hearings are held. Subpoenas are issued. Evidence is revealed.
- Legacy media does their job of framing everything as bombshells, the walls closing in, the beginning of the end, and tipping points reached.
- Trump and Republicans paint the Democrats as continuing to waste government time and taxpayer dollars on the “witch hunt.”
- Democratic candidates for President attack, but keep a close eye on public sentiment knowing if they embrace impeachment too much, they’ll be hurt in the general election but if they’re lukewarm, they’ll be hurt in the nomination race.
- When impeachment is delivered from the House to the Senate, it will fail.
- Both sides will then try to create the narrative that their side needs control of both chambers of Congress.
- From there, the advantage goes to the GOP who would have its best chance of taking back the House following the waste of everything impeachment bestowed on the nation.
Or, Pelosi can defer, ending her speakership in 2020 whether the Democrats retain the House or not.
It’s a tough spot for Pelosi and Democrats smart enough to realize how bad of an idea impeachment really is, but this is not a party of logic and reason. This is a party being driven by the radicals, and the radicals want impeachment. Let them have it.
