We gotta impeach. But we can’t.
I understand where she’s living right now. Trump has always been dangerous but now that he has entirely corrupted every aspect of our government, and is cutting deals with foreign countries to go after his political enemies, we absolutely cannot tolerate him in the Oval Office any longer. We have to remove him. We have to impeach. We have to.
But we can’t. The Senate Republicans are terrified of Trump and his base and they don’t dare say one single fucking thing against him, much less call for impeachment. If they help to unseat him, they will be destroyed in their next elections. Mitch McConnell especially will never under any circumstances allow that.
The ONLY feasible way to get rid of Trump is to vote him out in 2020.
And if she moves an impeachment that the Senate will simply refute, then she risks enflaming the right even more than it already is and giving Trump his 2020 victory, and possibly losing the House and putting the Senate further out of reach and Jesus Christ, people, if she does that, how long will it be before we literally have to indenture ourselves to some corporation to have a job at all?
How do you get around that? You can’t. You just can’t. Unless 20 Senate Republicans get taken out of the equation somehow, Trump is firewalled and all that will work against him is the next election.
It is a horrible, horrible spot that we are all in, and I can’t see anything else she can do.
