When will Pelosi pull the trigger on impeachment?

I like what Pelosi has been doing so far. She is being patient, building a case for impeachment. Trump has been helping her. I wanted impeachment to start sooner. However, Mueller fucked it all up. Where is he?

I think it is fair to say the window for impeachment is narrow. Next year is the election, I don't think it is possible to start impeachment hearings in 2020. It must begin before the election process begins.

What do you think Pelosi will do?

3. Why can't you start impeachment during an election year?

That seems like the perfect time to do it. There's nothing in the law or Constitution that forbids it. If it makes us look "political" or "partisan," I don't care. We need the bastard out of office, and the best way to accomplish that is to cripple him while he's running for re-election.

15. Whoa

He was never going to win in 2016. Besides, the argument that we must do it on principle has a lot of validity.

16. Right on principle but ..

By the time they begin inquiry and all the necessary process is finished, it will be only weeks left in office. Nancy is right in putting impeachment on hold. If somehow Trump squeaks out another electoral win, that will be a better team to impeach.

20. He does not need the pension

He currenly donates all of his salary. Much more than losing pension, what will really hurt him is loss of prestige & ego due to impeachment.

A real Billionaire worth 10 Billion can leave behind 100 million each to his next 100 generations.

4. I think we have to at least hear Mueller and get the non redacted report.

 

That is happening soon. I think we can wait to see how that evolves before Pelosi "pulls" the trigger. The next handful of weeks has stuff happening.

6. It wasn't the most important thing she did this week, but putting Kellyanne Conway in her place

was among my favorite.

7. An inquiry should be opened by July

That’s plenty of time to show that congress has “tried everything “ short of impeachment.

11. May be in 2021?

With only 17 months before next election, it is not worthwhile effort. Most likely he will lose in 2020 anyway. If not, 2021 will be a better time to impeach.

13. I think impeachment should happen right around election time.

I'm guessing Pelosi's thinking the same thing.

I'm for the slow-burn strategy, with the burn turning into a blazing inferno right about Election Day.

18. At this point....why bother?

Dont get me wrong...I want him gone yesterday but I think the better course of action is to politically waterboard the republican party and their appointees and leaders.

Carry on the investigations, reveal the results to the public as they become known, and the public will dump the party, its leaders and will demand restitution/compensation.

If Trump is impeached too early Pence will pardon Trump and the rest of his cohorts. I'd prefer to see the issues addressed by a Democratic majority strongly supported by the population.

Just my $.02

19. I don't think it will happen

But at the same time, it's not advantageous to come out and say "never".

I think she'll hold it over his head as leverage until the end of his Presidency.
