10. Yes, conviction is unlikely, but it's the impeachment hearings that would do the damage.

 

I agree right from the start that conviction is very unlikely.

While we don't have enough votes to convict, we do have enough votes to impeach. Throughout the impeachment hearings that would follow, Trump would be exposed on a national scale, which just might be enough to sway so many of the fence sitting voters who voted for Trump in 2016 to vote for Democrats in 2020.

We really need to stop being so fearful of impeachment. If we believe in justice, then we need to use the best tool available to us to hold Trump accountable for his crimes. That tool is impeachment. With or without conviction, impeachment will be a huge negative for Trump, not for Democrats.

I'm sick of standing by and watching this asshole get away with his atrocities without trying to hold him accountable in a legal and truthful manner. There's a reason that the impeachment articles were written into our Constitution, and we shouldn't ignore it just because we're afraid of what might happen. When the truth is on our side, we shouldn't be afraid to do what's right.
