I can clearly understand why Democrats wanted to impeach President Trump, it goes without saying. Nancy Pelosi did not want to impeach Trump and she had a good reason not to. Pelosi understood that it could backfire on Democrats in polls. Well, she was right.
The recent polls show that Trump's approval rating has gone up a bit since Pelosi and house democrats moved to start an impeachment inquiry. Even with all of the accusations directed towards Trump he still has the support of his base and some polls have Trump's approval rating as high as 46 to 49 percent.
The latest polls indicate that Trump's base will not budge and if anything the impeachment inquiry will likely cause the GOP to rally around the President.
I believe the rally cry to protect Trump by Republicans was Pelosi's biggest fear.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, there does not seem to be a Presidential candidate that can separate from the rest of the pack and become the overwhelming frontrunner.
President Trump admitted to asking the Ukraine government to dig up dirt on Joe Bidens son Hunter. Trump threatened to freeze $400 Million of aide if the Ukraine did not follow through with his request.
Trump's admission has sparked the impeachment debate among Democrats, putting pressure on Speaker Nacy Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings.
On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House of Representatives will open an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Although committed what appears to be an impeachable offense, there are still some Democrats think it is a waste of time to even attempt to impeach Trump at this point and time in Trumps Presidency. After all of the investigations, the Muller Report, the Russia probe and now this, some people just want Trump to finish his last year in office so they can vote him out and move on with a new Democratic President.
Some liberals believe impeaching Trump, will only make him look stronger in the eyes of his supporters. I believe there is some truth to that theory. Trump supporters are not fueled by policy but they are fueled by rhetoric and Trump loves to play the victim card. Impeaching him at this time would only embolden his supporters and make the Democrats look like they are just a bunch of elitists that are harassing the President. This may be the best thing that ever happened to Trump.
