This morning I posted that Trump is so ineffective he should not be impeached. What I should have said is this:
The man is first and foremost a danger to the republic and the rule of law. If I had my way, he’d be gone via impeachment tomorrow.
The danger that he poses to our Constitution is unique and is more important than the danger that another Republican president would post to the safety net.
So I should’ve made clear that since the key to impeaching this man is the moderate Republicans in the House, it makes more sense to (after the various reports come out, especially Mueller’s report) have the calls for impeachment come from the moderate Republicans. Any bill of impeachment must originate in the House, and the House is controlled by the Republicans.
When we attempt to remove the king, we cannot afford to lose.
I do still think though that his weakness is -for now at least – an opportunity to survive this Congress.
