Hugh Hewitt: Don’t Legitimize This Impeachment

There are three paths before Senate Majority Leader McConnell when it comes to any articles of impeachment the House eventually sends the Senate’s way.

One is short: a quick dismissal by the Senate.

One is long: an extensive trial that would let the president and his defenders expose wrongdoing by Democrats and their ”permanent bureaucracy” allies.

The third—the only approach that is obviously wrong but that may also be the most likely outcome—would be a far more limited trial that would serve only to reward Democrats for their bad behavior before reaching the foreordained conclusion that President Trump will not be removed from office.

There’s a lot of appeal to the first in my list: a long, deep dive.

There’s also a strong argument to be made for peremptory dismissal—think of it as a motion for summary judgment.

Whatever course Leader McConnell takes, he should take care to not legitimize this sham impeachment.

Lanhee Chen: The Single-Item Agenda of the Democrats: Impeachment

The Democrats seem to have an impeachment problem.

Recent polling from The New York Times and Siena college shows that in six swing states that President Trump won in 2016, registered voters generally support the impeachment inquiry, but oppose impeaching the President and removing him from office, by a margin of 53 to 43 percent.

So, the more Democrats pursue the impeachment of President Trump, the more it seems to work against them. That’s because this pursuit seems to come at the expense of progress on the issues voters actually care about, like jobs, the state of the economy, and keeping our communities and country safe. Historically, it’s been these issues that have a greater impact on the outcome of elections.

Nancy Pelosi has boasted that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time—in other words, pursue both impeachment and progress on the pocketbook issues that Americans care about. But in watching them recently, you have to wonder if that’s really true.
