The Democrats are fixing to fast-track President Trump’s impeachment, according to several reports.
I think they will have this done by the end of the year, at the latest. Possibly by Thanksgiving. And then hand it off to the Senate for a trial.
And make no mistake, they will impeach him. They’ve started down the road, and they will look like fools if they suddenly say, “Oh, never mind.” And their base wants it too much. This has been their dream for three years, since Trump was first elected.
And the Washington press corps everyone here reads will be beating the drum for it nonstop.
They must move fast because they don’t want all this going on during the Democratic primaries. It would move the focus away from all their wonderful candidates. The Iowa caucuses are Feb. 3, so that’s the due date.
The good news for the country as that this will be mercifully quick. I doubt the Senate will vote to convict Trump, because they don’t want to piss off his supporters, whom they need to be reelected. And the facts probably do not justify impeachment.
Unless major new revelations occur, this will be over relatively soon, and we can move from the viciousness of impeachment to the viciousness of the campaign.
