48. This is my thinking as well

If we don't impeach, one of the Trump campaign tactics will be to brag about how full of hot air the Democrats are and how terribly they have treated him. He will announce how innocent he is. and always was, and that now its obvious to everyone that Democrats were just making stuff up, and the liberal news media was their megaphone for their fake claims. That the proof is in the pudding because the Dems would have surely tried to impeach him if they could have.

And the fall out after that? He will win a second term, and then any talk of impeachment at the start of his second term will be laughed at. They will have no momentum, and probably even the MSM news will have moved on and ridicule any moves by some Democrats to revisit it. They would still need to sell ad spots, and would shrink back to the good old false equivalencies and another notch will click pushing the interpretation of "normal" further to the right, further towards fascism. I'm frightened to death what Trump will try and get away with in a second term. To the news networks, to the right to protest, to net neutrality, to setting up an even more restrictive voting suppression system including using hackable machines. So as to ensure the Republicans, and Mitch's goal of a permanent Republican State.




If we do impeach, and the predictable happens, the Republicans in the Senate do not convict, we head into the election with a population that is "woke". Yes there will be those on the far right that will be seething mad and get out all their inbred family to the polls to vote for God's wonderful gift to their country, but just as many or more will be disgusted by what they hear, and will be disgusted also that Republicans did nothing about it.


So if its a choice between doing the right thing for the country but stirring up the pot resulting in more deplorables voting, but also more independents and Never Trumpers joining us.....even if this resulted in a wash...that both groups of new voters cancelled each other out, the country still comes out ahead. Although my bet would be greater numbers would come out for us, especially in some of the swing states, compared to last election.

So what is holding this back????? Sorry but their inaction has to raise questions about if there are prominent powerful Democrats that don't want some aspects of foreign dealings in Washington exposed either. I'm not saying this is so, but they open themselves up to this kind of conjecture by the MSM, and are not looking good optically with the Democratic leadership seemingly trying desperately to keep the lid on a barrel that is overflowing with reasons, and evidence, to impeach. I also think many "part time" Democratic voters will stay home being disgusted that the Democrats did NOT have the courage of their convictions.

So in the end, if we do NOT impeach, our votes will be depressed because of witnessing this lack of leadership and responsibility to defend the country from this pall darkening the nation. While theirs will be boosted even if we don't, because the message will still be that we are a massive threat to the great Donald the Savior of white America, and that we will impeach for sure if Republicans don't get a majority hold on Washington.
