I have three reasons I worry about jumping into impeachment:
1. I lived through Clinton’s. The thing that kept him from being convicted was the public was not convinced he should be. That hurt Republicans.
2. I live in a very red area, so I see what a lot of people around here think of Trump. Someone even wrote G.O.A.T. for Trump at the gym.
I want him out of office in 2020 and a Democrat in office and Democrats in control of both chambers. That is my only goal. Whatever makes that happen.
I think there are a lot of people who will have to be convinced. Right now, Manchin will vote against conviction, and there will probably be a few House Reps that Pelosi would have to let go. And that would destroy party unity. That’s why I think we will have to build up to it.
