It is about time. Nancy Pelosi finally announced formal impeachment hearings against the most corrupt president America has ever had, Donald Trump.
I was against impeaching Trump after the Mueller report because the Democrats lost too much of the narrative with their bungling of the report. I wrote then,
I want us to impeach and convict the president. Unfortunately, our country is so uninformed that I know Donald Trump and his cabal will take advantage of the impeachment better than we will. Why? Because it is already happening.
The Mueller report was devastating. But the Trump show, the preamble to the release of the redacted report, was more effective than most thought it would be. The percentage of Americans wanting impeachment declined slightly.
Democrats should have been waiting for the Mueller report like a staged event. They should have taken delivery. Given a big speech. Asked reporters to come back in four hours where they would give a preliminary take on the report after their experts examined it. They then should have, in front of cameras, acted with incredulity that William Barr could characterize the story as exonerating with topic points and graphics. At that point, they should have declared that they would begin hearings immediately because the country cannot wait any longer as it is clear Trump damaged our national security with his suspect relations with foreign agents, corruption, and obstruction of justice.
But instead of putting in the work to clothe and sell the product to the American people, they allowed the Trump plot to succeed. Democrats lost the ability to believably inculcate in the minds of Americans that the Trump ordeal is anything other than politics, dirty and corrupt, but politics nonetheless.
They forced the hands of Nancy Pelosi
Please read the entire piece. The rank & file got ahead of Nancy Pelosi and the establishment appropriately. They jumped on the freshest Trump's impeachable offense and had a calculated roll out. That is the way it is done. Now you can see a bit of fear in Republicans and to some extent, Trump. The impeachment drive is on.
