I can understand your concerns here. If you want to get to the root, start with Pence. Impeaching Mike Pence would give Trump real pause to consider that he’s next. And if both of them go…we have the first woman President of the United States.

Impeaching Trump isn’t worth the trouble unless we go for both of them, Trump and Pence. Now that would be interesting. And it would be plausible if Democrats take the Senate.

For now, I’d like to see the Democrats work on a positive message about what they can do to make the country a better place to live in order to win in 2020. You know, like Andrew Yang. Now there’s a man with a mission and a message. I would love to see more Democrats talk like him.

As we saw in the 90’s with Bill Clinton, impeachment is a distraction and the Republicans paid a price for their efforts. If we move to impeach, that effort will have to come from somewhere, at the cost of a truly progressive agenda.

Let Trump continue to sell rope to the Republicans. If we move to impeach him now, we’re just cutting in front of Republicans to buy that rope.
