What’s amazing to me about the current drive to impeach the President is how blasé everyone is about it. The Democrats have been trying to impeach him since before he was even sworn in, often at the expense of their own credibility. The Republicans have been reflexively defending Trump against every charge, even the ones that have been worthy of closer scrutiny. Everyone has known that some sort of impeachment was coming and now that it’s about to arrive, no one seems to care what it might mean for the country as a whole.
If Trump is removed, his supporters will says he was railroaded and they will undoubtedly look forward to any opportunity to do the same thing to a President Warren. If Trump is not removed, an angry Resistance will continue to push the Democrats further to the Left. Neither outcome will be a victory for America and it all could have been avoided if people on both sides hadn’t lost their damn minds after Trump was elected. If the Democrats hadn’t become the Resistance and if the Republicans hadn’t become the Party of Trump, more people would be willing to seriously consider the charges against Trump and whether they warrant impeachment. Instead, we’ve surrendered to hysteria.
Whether Trump is removed from office or not, this is not going to end well for anyone.
