Dukakis To Dems: Focus Less On Impeachment, More On 2020

Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis urged his fellow Democrats to avoid pushing for impeachment and instead to focus on the 2020 election in an interview with Boston Public Radio Tuesday.

Im not a big impeachment fan I think we just go out and beat [President Trump's] brains in, politically, in two years, Dukakis said.

A survey released in April by NPR, PBS Newshour and Marist Poll found that 70 percent of Democratic respondents said they would definitely vote for a candidate who supported the idea of impeachment.

I really dont think that spending a lot of time on impeachment makes sense, Dukakis said. I just think weve got to get out there and work our tails off in every single one of the states.

2. The way to beat Trump's 'brains' in

is to exhaustively investigate every detail of his wrongdoing and release it all to the electorate.

3. If this shitshow gets bad enough the Repubs will talk impeachment.

Let them push it front and center. It will have to be bipartisan anyway.

And it probably will come to that.
