The GOP's cynical anti-impeachment argument

Is it undemocratic to hold President Trump accountable for his efforts to undermine democracy?

Listening to GOP leaders over the weekend, you would think so. Democrats and the evidence they have gathered in the impeachment inquiry say Trump used U.S. military aid to pressure Ukraine officials into announcing an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his family. Increasingly, Republican leaders are prepared to abandon the notion that Trump did nothing wrong here.

Instead, they've been led by Trump to embrace an alternative argument: Impeaching the president is bad no matter what he did because impeachment will undo the results of the 2016 election.

Democrats "are trying to change the outcome of 2016 and influence the next one," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told CBS'sFace the Nation on Sunday morning, adding later that the impeachment effort amounts to "undoing democracy, undoing what the American public had voted for."
