I do not know about the rest of the media, but some on MSNBC — Andrea Mitchell out with her pomp pomps — are really pushing the narrative that it is Democrats who are in a political bind with the Mueller Report. According to the narrative, people like me are howling at Democrats like hounds from Hell to impeach Trump now that the Mueller Report is out. However, hell hounds such as myself do not make up a majority of the Democratic voting base, especially in the all important early primary and caucus states for 2020.
That last part is very true considering I’m stuck in Kentucky, but I digress.
The stalwart Democratic leadership and the moderates in the party know if Trump is impeached by the House that he will be acquitted in the U.S. Senate. Therefore, this is a waste of time, especially since it bumps up against a general election campaign. Also, when Republicans failed to oust Bill Clinton, they paid a price. Furthermore, Democratic voters do not care about the Russia probe. They only want to hear about policy prescriptions for healthcare, the economy, and the environment. This is all part and parcel of the Democrats in a bind narrative.
The way out of this bind is for Democrats to not impeach Trump.
