The Democrats Got Their Impeachment Wet Dream. So, Now What?

Rick Moore passes this along:

It’s not every day you see a political party commit suicide on national TV and ensure the reelection of their opponent 11 months before Election Day.

Yeah, there is that. One gets the decided impression that they’re not going to like how this turns out. Do they truly believe that there isn’t going to be a huge backlash over this? Even their own internal polling is warning them that impeachment is a loser at the polls. My guess is that they’ve been watching the movie Thelma & Louise.

(Shrug)

So, okay, now that they’ve committed suicide effectively, what next? Possibly, nothing. Another reader makes the following suggestion;

There’s a possibility that Pelosi will never send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. The excuse will be Dems can’t be sure of a fair trial by the GOP majority, but they know he’ll be acquitted and they don’t want that on the record, just the impeachment.

I wonder about this one a bit, but I suppose it doesn’t matter much. As Rick says they’ve effectively committed suicide, and you’re really can’t do all that much once you’re dead.

Addendum:Eric

Apparently a few of the Democrats are already floating [1] this idea.

Pelosi, Congressman Adam Schiff, and Senator Chris Van Hollen have now all floated the idea of freezing the House vote where it is and not sending the impeachment articles to the U.S. Senate, where President Trump would undoubtedly go down in history as being vindicated.

Pelosi said, “So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us” and vowed to withhold naming the House Managers (the prosecutors) of the impeachment case until McConnell gives her the kind of “fair trial” that she demands… well the translation of that one is simple enough.

Yeah, well, the translation of that one is simple enough.she knows full well she’s not going to get any further with this nonsense, and she needs to find a way to blame the Republicans for it.
