On impeachment, there are good arguments on both sides.
Allowing him to win an impeachment trial to then be set loose to run around the country campaigning, saying, “I’ve been totally cleared. I care about you, the Democrats only care about getting Trump,” is inept politics.
Yet it’s a terrible precedent not to impeach when there are ten clear criminal obstruction counts laid out by Mueller.
It’s a very tough one. I now fall on the side of impeachment, because 18 months is a lot more danger to endure, to both our national security and our democracy.
But I’ll trust the judgment of Nancy Pelosi, whatever she decides after this plays out over the next month.
I still believe in the wisdom of banding together and following an ethical and wise leader. We are not going to prevail if we do not coalesce around a shared strategy.
