8. I was strongly anti-impeachment. Until we found out about the Ukraine abuse of power deal.

Thatís what made me favor it. Because I realize impeachment is a political act. And until that point we had no easy to understand, obviously impeachable offense. Admitted in the open and supported by non-partisans.

Did he deserve it prior to that? Of course. But we have to consider the politics of the situation.

Apparently, speaker Pelosi felt the same way. She was strong in her resistance until the Ukraine thing then she moved with Amazing speed.

And impeachment is not the same as holding him to Justice. I doubt the Senate will convict so there will be no change in his status. But what we are finding out now may eventually lead to Justice when he loses in 2020.
