And that right there was what I was arguing.

The Constitution is clear on the issue of holding impeachment hearings if there is a dangerous or criminal official in office.

Putting aside the Constitution Democrats swore to uphold and protect for potential political gain in 2020 (and there is no guarantee that will happen) makes Democrats no better than Republicans.

The largest block of voters in the election was those who didn’t vote. If one is looking for a political angle, then public hearings on impeachment would dominate the airwaves and reach those voters who did not vote in the last presidential election.

I’m not sure, however, that the last thing we want those voters to see is Trump being acquitted by the Senate. Might not that make them even more cynical about government and less inclined to vote? I’m just not sure, and polling indicates voters don’t want an impeachment, thought we’ll see if the revelations in the Mueller Report changes that.
