“It’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans it makes them want to rally around the flag,” Jones said on CNN last night.
“When I was anti-Bill Clinton from the left in the ’90s, and then they tried to impeach him, suddenly Clinton was my best friend,” he added as a brutal wakeup call to the Democrats hell-bent on walking the plank by impeaching a President during an election year.
“I was like, ‘Leave Bill Clinton alone.’ So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation.”
Correct. They cannot win a trial in the Senate unless the GOP completely loses its collective mind (remember the establishment Republicans have sold us out for so long they actually could do something as stupid as convicting Trump) but the chances of that happening are slim to none.
Politicians in an election cycle who care only about their jobs would never toss out the gravy train (the Trump movement) that brought them back to power.
“If they don’t do something, their own base is going to feel disappointed and feel like maybe Trump gets away too much,” Jones continued.
“If you go through with impeachment, though, you divide the country further, you take the oxygen away from your candidates, and you still don’t solve the problem of foreign interference.
Just because you impeach a president, it doesn’t mean you don’t still have the problem of foreign interference. It’s a big mess.”
