Support for Impeachment Growing

27%

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds 27% of Americans say there’s enough evidence to begin impeachment hearings into President Trump now — up 10 points from last month. Another 24% think Congress should continue investigating to see if there’s enough evidence to hold impeachment hearings in the future, which is down eight points. And 48% believe that Congress should not hold impeachment hearings and that Trump should finish out his term as president — unchanged from a month ago.

Bruni: Pence a Horrorshow Compared to Trump

“There are problems with impeaching Donald Trump. A big one is the holy terror waiting in the wings. … That would be Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel. … To that brimming potpourri he adds two ingredients that Trump doesn’t genuinely possess: the conviction that he’s on a mission from God and a determination to mold the entire nation in the shape of his own faith, a regressive, repressive version of Christianity. Trade Trump for Pence and you go from kleptocracy to theocracy.”

Impeachment Was Meant to Save Us from a Trump

“Their writings and debates surrounding the creation of the Constitution make clear that the framers feared a certain kind of character coming to power and usurping the republican ideal of their new nation. Having just defeated a tyrant — ‘Mad’ King George III of England — they carefully crafted rules to remove such a character: impeachment. In the process, they revealed precisely the kind of corrupt, venal, inattentive and impulsive character they were worried about. … The very embodiment of what the Founding Fathers feared is now residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.”
