The worst thing Nancy Pelosi can do is move the impeachment to the Senate. But Mitch McConnell will probably prevent her from doing that. Yes, there's a way that he can stop Nancy Pelosi.
Impeachment is a political process. Donald Trump is becoming, everyday, more of an albatross weighing against the Republican Party. Impeachment hearings are exposing his corruption and duplicity to his supporters.
There is no benefit for Democrats to finishing impeachment hearings. The benefit is in keeping them going as long as possible.
Trump has proven himself to be a complete failure at delivering on his promises to drain the swamp or challenge the system. He has actually made things much worse, expanding the swamp and giving more power and money to the people within the system.
If Nancy Pelosi is smart she will encourage increased impeachment hearings, even having additional committees open up hearings. She will push to have investigations of Mueller's findings, included the redacted ones, and the redacted incomplete investigations.
The clock is ticking. The longer the impeachment hearings last the more damage they will do to the Republican brand, not only in the house senate and White house but also down ticket governor and state legislature races, even local County races and Municipal races.
We've seen in Kentucky and Louisiana the backlash to Trump. We've seen in County races this last election, Democratic wins, where Republicans were in control for 40 years. It is highly unlikely that Mitch McConnell will allow Nancy Pelosi to continue the impeachment hearings. The only way he can stop her is to force Trump to leave.
McConnell stop Pelosi and the accelerating Republican Apocalypse by working on the medical pretext that was set up this past weekend with Trump's emergency visit to Walter Reed hospital. Trump will leave the presidency with a Medical lie.
Because the Republicans will need time to open up a primary to select a viable candidate, it is still very likely, as I've predicted, that this will happen before the end of 2019. Mitch McConnell will do everything he can to hold onto his power as Senate Majority Leader.
Recently, Anthony Scaramucci predicted that Trump would be removed when polling supporting impeachment reached 70%. Already 70% of Americans believe that Trump engaged in impeachable Behavior.
It is becoming more and more likely and, now more commentators are beginning to predict, that Trump will be removed. Mike Pence will become president. It would be wise for Nancy Pelosi 2 start having Adam Schiff begin to investigate Pence, who will certainly be on the ballot as one of the Republican primary contenders.
I've become confident that the worst thing Nancy Pelosi can do is finish the impeachment hearings, at least before this summer, when would be extremely late for republicans to field an alternate candidate. If the Democrats can keep the impeachment hearings going through the summer they will cook the Republican party's goose. But I don't think Mitch McConnell, the real leader of the Republican Party will let that happen.
