Republicans, stop using the ‘I’ word
Regarding the trifecta of scandals that threaten to paralyze Washington, my colleague Tom Breuer covers the bases pretty well in his most recent blog. I agree with Tom on this point: with regard to impeachment talk, put a mute on it.
By all means, investigate, find out what you can, and hold those responsible accountable, but right now there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing by the President of the United States. Until you actually have strong evidence of that, shut up.
Either that or stop salivating, because you’re revealing your true colors, and getting at the actual truth of what happened appears to only be a means to an end. A baseless impeachment proceeding against the nation’s first African American president would tear the country apart and serve as a boomerang for those who pursue it. Remember, you might be able to impeach in the House, but you need 67 votes to convict in the Senate and you don’t even have a majority in that body.
Most of all, don’t take your eyes of the ball and lose focus on the myriad economic and fiscal problems left unresolved. Immigration reform, tax reform, and a host of issues could be held hostage, so tread responsibly and cautiously.
