When I started writing this piece, it was going to be in defense of Nancy Pelosi’s argument against a premature rush to impeachment. Her reasoning still stands. I was going to point to the fact that she wants a real investigation (vs. what the Republicans did ) and bi-partisan support – since the Republicans do control the Senate. Impeachment by the House, followed by acquittal in the Senate would reduce a trial about Trump’s multiple abuses of power, lack of temperament, immaturity, and general incompetence to an exercise in partisanship.
