Amazing Acoustic Guitar Solo Jam of the Night: R.D. King, "Thrum"

It looks like the Mueller Report may be having an effect on Trump’s popularity as there has been a recent tic upward in his disapproval rating and downward in his approval rating. He has had a remarkably narrow range over the last two years, usually remaining at around 52-53% disapproval, except there was a big spike upward when he shutdown the government. I expect that after a few weeks his disapproval rating will settle back down to between 52-53%; he is really going to have an uphill battle to get re-elected.

That’s why impeachment hearings are important.

The US House committees are now conducting the various investigations which can be used for a basis for an impeachment vote if warranted.

What worries me about impeachment is not that it might hand the GOP a weapon going into the 2020 election. What really worries me is if the House conducts the appropriate investigations and it does not find sufficient evidence to warrant impeachment.

All those hanging their hat on impeachment on the left then take their ball and go home, thinking the whole system is rigged (not that a proper investigation did not find sufficient evidence to support articles of impeachment).

All that said, the political ramifications of impeachment (what if this turns out GOP voters, what if this is painted as “political,” &c) should not matter to Democrats. What should matter is upholding the rule of law.

If the evidence indicates there should be articles of impeachment, then political considerations should not weigh on that decision (will we win or lose in 2020).

As for VP Pence, in the event (which seems unlikely) that he should become President, we can deal with that when it happens.
