re: #281 Belafon

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.
3. Fox.

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.

Got it. Senate may not convict, but a lot of evidence will come out. Most of it will have no effect on anyone, but some of it might convince independents in swing states to vote against the republicans.

There is no cross examination on Fox. I think republicans fear this and may encourage trump to resign.

Holding back is what often gets dems in trouble.
