Default Karl Rove: Five things that will happen if House Dems move to impeach Trump

Interesting read.

Karl Rove: Five things that will happen if House Dems move to impeach Trump

Quote:
Knowing what they know today, if House Democrats move forward on the impeachment of President Trump, five things will happen.

First, swing voters will conclude the Democrats are conducting a highly partisan exercise.

Second, impeachment talk will largely or completely obscure anything else House Democrats will do legislatively. Voters could decide the Democrats are a do-nothing bunch.

Third, impeachment will play a much larger role in the Democratic presidential primary. The issue of impeachment will obscure the other messages of the Democratic presidential hopefuls and raise the prospect of a backlash against candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who have yet to embrace impeachment.

Fourth, the Republican Senate will quickly dismiss any impeachment resolution passed by the House, killing the issue.

And finally, any of the dozens of vulnerable House Democrats in Republican-leaning districts who back impeachment will have given their GOP opponents a big issue.

The problem is a good percentage of the Left does NOT care...They fear jumping off of the runaway train might hurt themselves, so they'd rather stay on it as it accelerates and goes even more out of control...

Nancy Pelosi is the lady riding the impeachment tiger. She can't expose the Democrats in moderate districts to the back lash of an impeachment vote but her Speaker tenure depends on keeping the impeachment crazies at bay. The strategy seems to be hold impeachment hearings without calling them such while escalating rhetoric calling for Trump to be imprisoned after he leaves office.

While Rove is correct about the political implications of the House impeaching Trump, Nancy Pelosi is more likely to initiate formal impeachment proceedings in coordination with the eventual Democrat nominee's campaign. The timing will be such that no votes on actual impeachment will be taken before the election but the Democrat candidate will bray as if Trump had already been impeached.

100% agreed...

They will officially call for impeachment ONLY when(they believe) it is the most politically advantageous...The media will be notified, beforehand, so they can whip up their article and news reports for full effect...

Here is the paragraph including the part you edited out to make your comment appear thoughtful.

Yes Captain Obvious, Resistance Democrats are unhappy Trump hasn't been impeached and imprisoned. The reason Pelosi hasn't given into the Resistance crazies is the political cost of forcing Democrats from swing districts to side with the lynch mob or shatter her caucus.
