before its time

Let me be clear. The case against Trump, damning as it is, has not yet been fully developed. My advice would be: impeach no president before his time.

That said, in light of my two immediately prior posts, here and here, and in light of the spectacle that took place on Michael Cohen Day, let me say this about that.

Many of my progressive brethren and sistern have feared impeachment, because it might “turn off moderates and independents.” That is certainly a metaphysical possibility. But in law and business and politics, you have to play the odds. And after Wednesday, I think it’s the unhinged Republicans who are much more likely to “turn off the middle.”

So, I say, when the time is ripe for impeachment, just bring it on.

be sure youre right
