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.

It will be June before the full report is released. We have SDNY and State of New York to weigh in. You don’t want impeachment hearings during the summer. Take time. build the case, get into October and then introduce articles of impeachment. Run the hearings into January before turning over to the Senate.
