If we are going to impeach, it's got to be this year

Iíve seen some comments floating around here that we should wait till after Trump loses the election next year to impeach him.

No. One of the reasons to impeach is to stop his group from damaging the Republic any further. We need to open an impeachment inquiry NOW. We have the numbers, folks: we need 20 Senate Republican votes to get rid of the bastard and there are 22 Senate Republicans who do not want to have to explain to their voters why someone who supports a criminal traitor like Trump needs to stay in office.

Impeaching Trump after he loses the election is like shooting down an enemy plane after it bombs your headquarters: fun, but too late to do any good.

1. I agree, waiting until the election is critically flawed.

 

What if he wins (let's say by a narrow Electoral College win)? That would mean he's right and the Mueller investigation was a witch hunt.

Given the facts, impeachment is the only option.

2. Impeachment isn't going to happen after Trump loses.

The whole point of impeachment is removal from office.

Is it technically possible to impeach after he leaves office? Possibly, but there wouldn't be any point. The only penalties from impeachment are removal from office and being banned from future office.

He could, however, be indicted after he loses. That would actually be more likely to result in tangible results, i.e. jail time.

3. I know that and so do you

And really, besides taking away his pension (which he doesnít need; his golf courses alone will keep him in Big Macs and cheap makeup until the end of his days) what good would it do?
