For months now I have asked the left one simple question:
If Trump and Pence are impeached, what happens next?
To date, not a single pro-impeachment activist has offered an answer to this really simple question.
I understand some on the left lack sufficient knowledge of civics to provide an answer. Indeed, Hillary’s never ending campaign may lead them to believe impeachment means she gets to be President.
That said, I don’t think the left’s leadership really wants impeachment. They want the idea of impeachment alive and electric for their base. They stand to lose if impeachment transitions from visceral rhetoric into the dull end-state of Congressional hearings.
Impeachment for them is another dog whistle for them. In the same way “No Blood for Oil” used to whip up the left’s base, “impeach forty-five” serves the same purpose today.
The spectacle of presumably Nancy Pelosi running impeachment hearings would leave the left with one less thing available to fire up their base.
That’s why they can’t tell me or you what would happen after impeachment…they have no real plans to actually follow through with it.
