Forums - Politics Discussion - Official Thread: The Impeachment of President Donald Trump

Every politician of the democratic party as well as every supporter of the democrats who wanted/supported the impeachment of Donald J. Trump is a clueless clown.

Okay, maybe scratch the clown because not everyone necessarily wears make-up. The point is, all those people have acted as the biggest enemies to their own cause.

If we're thinking solely based on political strategy, I count this as a win for Senate Democrats.

A lot of senators from where Trump is generally unpopular (Maine, Colorado, North Carolina, Iowa, Arizona) were put in the spotlight and were forced to take a tough vote that is probably not aligned with their constituents. Some were passionate about it, and Dems are sure to use that as advertisements when they try to bring them down. Romney's vote is even better, as a Red State Republican, he robbed Senators of a unified front, making a stronger case against "moderate" Republicans like Maine's Susan Collins.
