CNN’s Chalian makes a great point that the move to impeach President Trump doesn’t play well with voters.
Republicans are smart to try and nail the Dems who voted with Pelosi on impeachment. This is political suicide for them…
“This plays out district by district…which is why some of those Democratic members of the House, the majority makers, who come from districts Donald Trump won in 2019 (he meant 2016), they voted with Nancy Pelosi on this today for the most part and Republicans are pouncing to try to hang that vote around their neck because…
…in their districts back home where Donald Trump won, this idea of impeaching and removing him is not a popular one.”
TOM BROKAW EVEN SAID TODAY THAT THE DEMS DON’T HAVE THE “GOODS” ON TRUMP SO THIS WILL NOT GO WELL FOR THEM:
Tom Brokaw was on with Andrea Mitchell when he broke it to the Democrats that they don’t “have the goods” on President Trump. YA THINK?
He was speaking about his time as a reporter during the Watergate era and how Nixon was actually involved in a crime but Trump has done nothing wrong in the current effort to impeach him.
“They don’t have the same kind of clarity that the people who were opposed to Richard Nixon had because it was so clear that these were criminal acts he was involved in.”
.@tombrokaw: Unlike with Nixon, Dems “don’t have the goods” on Trump.

Pelosi is making a huge mistake in doing this but she has no choice. The Democrats have no good candidate for 2020 so the focus must be on trying to damage President Trump in any way they can.
Also, the focus is off of the impending Horowitz report and on Barr’s effort to investigate our corrupt intel under the Obama administration.
Not to mention loads of corruption being uncovered about Joe and Hunter Biden!
Impeachment is a pivot the Dems must take.
