Absolutely. I don't know who they thought would be convinced by this move outside of people they've already got on side. It totally plays into the outsider/non-political elite narrative of Trump and equally shows the lack of faith in their own candidates to defeat him.How the Democrats ever thought this was a good idea is beyond me, Trump was never gonna be found guilty, EVER and being cleared done nothing but fortify his position. Their thirst to feck Trump has totally clouded what the bigger Democratic picture should have been.
It's more than that, this will fuel his entire re-election campaign. Attempting to impeach presidents rarely - if ever - works and often has the totally opposite effect.I don't get this idea that the Dems should have done nothing because he was never going to be convicted.
Ha, you might end up being right.1. Bidens being investigated helps Bernard get the nomination.
2. Sanders defeats Trump
3. "Thank you Donald" becomes an unironic meme.
Exactly, we heard the same shit after the release of the Mueller report (which lead to multiple convictions) and then Ukraine happened. This guy is going to fecking melt down this time around. He now has a record in public office to defend. Dems need to play dirty, come together and make real people the face of their campaign.Trump has a great chance to win re election but it's not going to be as easy as people think. The independents and new supporters he gains after a faux win turn on a fecking dime, like that woman that wanted her vote back because she found out Buttigieg was gay.Fortify his position among who?
The GOP are with him, impeachment or not. He isn't more popular among the GOP than he was two months ago.
What message would it have sent to the Dems base if they just let him get on with it?
Forget all that, how about the Congress' constitutional duty?. They should have let a flagrant abuse of power slide with just tweets claiming righteous indignation?
Impeaching Trump was not a bad thing. How the establishment Dems handled the impeachment, bending over backwards to protect the shady (but not technically illegal) nepotism of the Bidens massively weakened their case and was a bad thing.Ha, you might end up being right.
I don't understand people who said this impeachment thing was a bad thing for the Dems. Everyone I've heard who is against Trump -
If they were ruthless they could have a hung the Bidens out to dry, established precedent around nepotism and emoluments and then gone hard after his spawn.Impeaching Trump was not a bad thing.
