13. Unlike 2005, Pelosi may be correct on impeachment

 

Pelosi should have allowed Impeachment hearings on the Iraq War. Thousands of Americans died in that conflict, a war of choice by Bush and Cheney.

This time Pelosi is trying to temper a rush to Impeachment, and for very good reasons. It is late in the legislative calendar. Increasing the debt limit and the need to pass a budget by October 1rst is going to take a lot of time.

The Senate wonít convict Trump even if he were to shoot someone dead on Fifth Avenue. We would be at the start of primary season by the time Articles of Impeachment make it to the Senate.

I want Trump impeached, but I also donít want actions by the House to backfire and give Trump an issue to run on.
