Just one of a thousand things presidents can do, now, if they don't impeach him for doing it.
One monumentally awful part of Pelosi‘s decision to resist impeaching: framing her decision as political math.
If you’re not impeaching only b/c you think it’s a political loser, people will assume, once you do impeach, it’s only b/c you think it’s a political winner.
As a result, before they impeach him, they’ve got to get rid of her.
Pelosi has made the most terrible political miscalculation of the last half century.
We have to impeach a lawless president.
She has to go, so we can do it.
That was always going to be what they said. It’s just that now she’s lent that nonsense counterargument a deadly legitimacy.
He’s done enough to investigate for 20 years. We should be in month 9 of an official impeachment investigation that lasts up until he leaves office, at which point it can become a criminal proceeding.
