Should Trump Be Impeached? Would a Democratic Prez Who Did the Same Things Trump Did - Get Away With It?

Thom plus logo The upside of impeachment hearings is that they'll highlight in a very specific way the crimes Trump has committed, and hopefully Pence as well. The downside is that it'll enrage the Trump supporters. Or is that the downside? Might it wake a few Trump supporters up? And aren't they enraged already?

Congress can certainly do more than one thing at once, but the media generally can't, so this becomes, more than anything, a question about whether having Trump at the center of the news daily will hurt or help him. History shows it may well help him, although his crimes are so much more egregious than Clinton's that it may also peel away a few of the Jeff Flake/Bob Corker type Republicans. On the other hand, he's probably already lost those Republicans.

And Trump will probably figure out a way to put himself at the center of the news cycle anyway, from now through election day. So, the real question is: Should impeachment hearings begin now, or after we hear from Mueller?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
