I’ve been an impeachment skeptic but after the Ukraine story, Democrats have no choice but to begin an impeachment inquiry. The following things will happen: Republicans won’t convict him in the Senate (and they probably will block having a trial at all), Ken Starr and Jonathan Turley will appear constantly on tv defending Trump, there will be a lot of concern-trolling about “Democratic overreach”. The whole exercise will be difficult. Jed Bartlett’s not going to show up and solve the whole thing with some crisp dialogue.
The politics of impeachment may be tricky for Democratic members of the House in competitive districts. So let’s raise a lot of money for them right now.
