Greg Hale, a former aide to former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is warning Democrats against attempting to impeach President Donald Trump, saying it will not boost the party’s chances of winning the White House in 2020. “Don’t do it please. Please don’t impeach him. It won’t help us win in 2020. He deserves it — I believe that —but what’s the best long term play for the country?” Hale wrote on Twitter. “His day will come and it won’t be pretty but unless Republicans join the fight it’s not worth the risk.”Hale, a partner of the Markham Group, a company specializing in political event production, most recently served as the Director of Production for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. The warning comes as House Democrats expanded their investigation into President Trump and his allies this week, requesting documents from … [Read more...] about Clinton Aide to Democrats: Impeaching Trump ‘Won’t Help us Win in 2020’
Democrats impeach trump
Democrats have taken back the House. Does that mean they'll be trying to impeach President Trump? With Democrats winning a House majority in the midterms, they now control the body with the power to impeach the president — a possibility that came up again and again in his first two years in office. The idea seemed to haunt Mr. Trump during the campaign, as he warned rally crowds that a Republican defeat could lead to an attempted impeachment. But for the immediate future, at least, Democrats don't seem eager to make it happen. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who could soon become speaker -- tried to tamp down impeachment talk as the midterms approached. "For those who want impeachment, that's not what our caucus is about," Pelosi told PBS' NewsHour this week.

If the … [Read more...] about Will Democrats impeach Trump now that they control the House?
Former Vice President Joe Biden said if Democrats retake the House of Representatives, "they don't" impeach President Trump. The comments came during an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell that aired on Thursday morning. He called for Democrats to wait until the conclusion of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. "I hope they don't. I don't think there's a basis for doing that right now," Biden said. "I think we should focus on all the terrible things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle class people and working class people," Biden said.

In the interview, the former vice president also expressed … [Read more...] about Biden on Democrats impeaching Trump: “I hope they don’t”
The New York Times reported Tuesday evening: “A One-Two Punch Puts Trump Back on His Heels.” The conviction Tuesday afternoon of President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort (on charges unrelated to the campaign), plus the simultaneous guilty plea by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to charges that included campaign finance violations, sent the media and the political world into a frenzy.But ironically, Trump and the Republicans could end up being the winners. Cohen told the court he broke campaign finance laws at Trump’s request. Trump’s lawyers deny it. Regardless, Trump is unlikely to be in any legal jeopardy. As even the Washington Post acknowledged on Tuesday evening, “The assertion by President Trump’s former lawyer that he broke campaign finance laws at the direction of then-candidate Trump could spark calls for impeachment hearings — but probably will not have any legal consequences for the president … [Read more...] about Republicans Find Midterm Message: Vote GOP, or Democrats Impeach Trump
