David Remnick Explains Why Impeaching Trump Could Backfire on Democrats

Trump should be allowed to finish his term so that Pence does not get a chance to stabilise the Republicans before the next election. The opposition should just focus on his financial misdeeds and bankrupt him for good.

But that totally makes no sense to me. For 1 - Bill Clinton had the country in a surplus and he wasn't going around making frivolous claims about our Democracy, He wasn't trying to take away the Press 1st Amendment and calling them the enemy of the people, he wasn't associating himself as a Nationalist, Clinton wasn't promoting Hate or Divisiveness. Clinton wasn't creating Trade Wars that is creating havoc on American workers.... so far I hope you guys have caught my draft because the list of Trump's dirty laundry is long as hell and it is why Trump impeachment would be best for the country. 2nd -Clinton was popular and strong for this country when the Republican Impeached him, that is why his popularity grew tremendously. Trump, on the other hand, has weakened our country so I seriously doubt impeaching him will make him more popular. An IMPEACHMENT to this Russian Puppet will be the first step to getting our country back on a path to recovery.

We should absolutely NOT impeach Trump because we'd then have to deal with Pence. Trump is a snake oil salesman and a buffoon who is incapable of doing much. On top of that, there is the question of whether you can indict a sitting president. Keep him where he is, focus on taking over the executive branch, then indict him as a civilian.

Comparing the Clinton impeachment to a possible Trump one is comparing apples to oranges. Clinton was impeached for something that had nothing to do with politics or his job but for something that should only have been in divorce court to wit, he had affairs with other women while married. Clinton wasn't committing treason by colluding with agents of a foreign nation to win an election. It was stupid of the Republicans to waste a "power stroke" by impeaching Clinton over something nobody cared about (as noted by his popularity increasing in spite of the GOPs slander campaign) because it had nothing to do with being President. Apples != Oranges

Donald Trump’s following is such a personality cult that impeachment would only make him a martyr. Better to let him continue to make an ass of himself and eventually be his own undoing. Let the majority of his followers make up their own minds to ditch him and find a new idol. Besides, if Trump is impeached, then Mike Pence takes over. MIKE. PENCE. Now that is a man who would get stuff done. And not in a good way (in my liberal opinion).

Bill Clinton's popularity was helped by impeachment because it was so obvious that the Repubs were making a mountain out of a molehill. Trump's criminality and lack of ethics, decency or respect for the constitution is an _actual_ mountain.

He did that by promising the return of secure blue collar jobs – a promise he didn't keep because he couldn't. His appeal to people like you who think most of the media is 'far left' is not enough to win him an election. You're in a minority, Daniel, even if it doesn't feel like that where you live. Outside your bubble, most people are fed up with Trump and with the Repubs for backing him.

We wouldn’t have Trump today, or Mitch McConnel, if Nixon had been prosecuted and died in prison. Going easy on Nixon essentially set the stage for the notion that the worst that can happen to a corrupt politician is they have to resign. If politicians who violate their oaths of office, or commit crimes were prosecuted and imprisoned with serious time, then charlatans and crooks would be less likely to run for office, given the scrutiny high office brings on their actions. Mitch McConnel should have been arrested for stealing a Supreme Court nomination... Paul Ryan should have been arrested for FAILING to impeach Trump over his emoluments. Party affiliation is NOT an excuse for failing to protect the nation from corrupt office holders. If Trump or his new AG tries to fire bob muelller or shut him down... that is obstruction of Justice...and The AG should be arrested. We need to put Trump and his family and his lackeys into prison for their crimes REGARDLESS of the short term cost... so that people like Trump will NEVER think it’s a good idea to try and run for President.

Trump's popularity is most likely already at maximum burn, and even if it isn't, you know that over the next two years he's probably going to be campaigning non-stop to make sure it is. It is difficult to imagine that anything the Democrats could do could excite his base any more than it already is or will be. What the Democrats need to worry about, is delivering for their base. That means protecting Mueller. Investigating/impeaching Trump. Subpoenaing his tax returns. Fighting to end corruption. And pushing the legislative agenda that they promised to fight for coming into the midterms (especially Medicare for All). They can't rely on anti-Trump sentiment to get their base to turn out again in 2020, just like they wouldn't have gotten anywhere had they relied on just that in 2018. They need to show that they are going to deliver if/when they get power back.

If there are degrees of offence - Trump is in the oxy-acetylene temperature scale - which demands an extraordinary response like impeachment. But with a GOP Senate the likelihood of Trump being tried by the Senate is beyond unlikely. Trump could avoid impeachment by resigning - but that's another unlikely scenario given the Senate's reluctance to fulfill it's Constitutional obligations. So Trump is now like a tank in deep mud with one of its tracks blown off. He's stuck, bogged down, he knows it, and he's in a white hot rage. He will lash out - and, if it suits him, will shut the country down on Dec 7th. when the Government runs out of money. He'll blame the Dems - naturally... Welcome to bicameral legislative realities Donny - not quite like The Apprentice eh? What are the chances he'll put on even more weight? You want fries with those fries?

If you're counting on the party of navel-gazing champagne liberal elites to competently fix this country, you're dreaming. *"Political rights do not originate in parliaments; they are rather forced upon them from without. They do not exist because they have been legally set down on a piece of paper, but only when they have become the ingrown habit of a people, and when any attempt to impair them will meet with the violent resistance of the populace."* -- _Rudolf Rocker_

I'm suggesting you begin applying friction to the machine. It took many, many years for the machine of oppression to spin up, and it's not going to be stopped overnight. But the longer you wait, the more momentum it gains. It may already be too late; ecological collapse combined with growing wealth disparity and authoritarian control of world governments by a tiny billionaire elite might trigger the death of _billions_ before it runs its course, assuming our species survives. But while our chance of stopping the machine is getting smaller by the minute, it's has _zero_ chance of stopping so long as you and the rest of the feel-good, soft-left liberal suburbanites keep burying your heads in the sand and expecting the same people who created this crisis to solve it.

So what you're suggesting? Right now? To create 3rd party, that could dominate and win the house next time? Out of what? Fractions upon fractions of non fiting politicians? Mind you, the 2 party system imho is one of the stupidest things in a supposed democracy, that could exist (and there is unending list of stupid things in the ol good USA), ant erasing that tradition is a good long time strategy, but what is short time one? What sane and not totally corrupt citizens should do NOW?

Suggesting that Democrats merely roll over instead of investigating Trump's crimes, as the House and Senate SHOULD have been doing all along, would just hand Trump carte blanche to carry on doing as he pleases. Comparing Trump to Clinton is laughable, Trump is not going to pick up more supporters because he is being exposed, if anything, people may actually start to realise just how much he has been betraying America and turn on him. Trump is NEVER going to be non-partisan, it's either his way or the highway, he's not only made that perfectly clear through his actions, he's openly said it in interviews, most recently that multiple hour whining and ranting that he did in front of the Press Corps. The ONLY way to recover and protect the Democracy of America is to fight those who are trying to warp the nation into a fascist dictatorship, and that means fighting Trump and his henchmen. Rolling over will literally betray the votes of every person who voted Democrat! Democrats need to stop being utterly pathetic and wet, and start standing up and defending US Democracy while there is still any left! They have the power to prevent the majority of the crimes and injustice that Trump is pushing now, and if they don't use it, then they are allowing America to be destroyed. Personally, I believe that the useless leadership of the Democratic party NEEDS to change, those who are at the top now are far too comfortable and settled, and seem to have little interest in rocking the boat too much. And at this time, rocking the boat is exactly what is needed before the Trump Party tear a hole in the hull!

+Mark Hunt Thanks Mark. My hope is that those in the thrall of Trump and his blatant lies, will finally recognise the blatantly dictatorial actions Trump continues to make, and will refuse to support his crimes any further. My thought is that EVERYONE has a point where they will turn on him, it just depends on what evidence they need to show them the truth. From what we have seen from Mueller's prosecutions so far is that he leaves nothing to chance and produces iron-clad cases against those he charges, to the degree that even crooks like Manafort admit that they are guilty. Even those who claim that they believe Trump before any of their immediate family would soon recant that if push came to shove, just as Trump's Fixer Cohen did. Trump is going to be the death of American Democracy (What there is of it at present) between all the dirty tricks of Republicans, the flaccid and weak Democratic leadership and the open capitulation of almost every Republican becoming servants of Trump, if someone doesn't start fighting back soon, there may not be any real elections in 2 years to get rid of him. He's openly talked about tearing up great swathes of the Constitution, claiming that he can ignore and re-write it at will, that the gullible folks who clutch their bibles and copies of the Constitution SHOULD be up in arms against him... But because of his hateful rhetoric and scapegoating of non-whites and non-Trump fanatics, they worship him as he gives them someone to blame for literally everything. Trump's base is getting smaller and smaller, with every crime he commits, with every appalling, inexcusable comment he makes, people are leaving and striking back out for the shores of sanity. Even with the Republicans still in control of the Senate, all that is required is enough proof to show the American public just what Trump is doing, and they will turn on him like a pack of piranhas. There is no loyalty, honesty, dignity or integrity in the Republicans any more, and there has not been in most of them for a long time. They will turn on him when the pressure gets too much, we just have to keep turning up the heat and exposing Trump's crimes to the people. And Mueller's report should be out soon, and there is nothing that Trump can actually do to prevent that now. Even firing Mueller would not have that much affect, as the majority has been done, and the report is being written by reports. Trump cannot bury it with the House being in opposition, and even if the Republicans refuse to consider it, the public can be shown which will turn things against Trump. No one can be above the Law, otherwise America is just another form of dictatorship or monarchy, which is exactly what Trump intends.

Dahn- You have made many good points. Especially near the end calling for a change in the Democrat hierarchy. Their record of attracting voters is worse than awful. Where we disagree is in your hope that the electorate will grasp his "betraying America". Many who support him are likely unwilling to change their minds about that lout. investigating him is fine, but impeachment proceedings would be useless since conviction in the Senate is impossible. You write well, so keep at it.

Trump replaced Sessions with someone who wasn't just a flunky. Whitaker isn't legally qualified to replace Sessions. There is a clear line of succession defined by law in order to prevent what Trump is trying to do.
