The Impeachment Saga - The fallout (3 of 3)

So the Democrats were happy, the mainstream media were happy and the polls have shown they were dumb to do this. Some in the media already get that, though most don't see it.

But there is more to this impeachment than all of that.  Firstly, president Trump will not be judged impeachable by the Senate, who must decide to convict or acquit the president.

But that's not where the Democrats plan to go anyway. They know they can't win. They know the president would be exonerated.  They will probably just hold this over the president's head.

Even that looks like a doomed strategy that will accomplish nothing. No impeachment in progress, no leverage. What is a little more worrisome is that Democrats already are planning for more impeachments. They've cheapened the process to the point where it can never be used because it will forevermore be useless. Maybe their objective is to make the next Democrat president unimpeachable because the process has become so partisan as to be seen as forever despicable. The next Democrat president will have carte blanche. Maybe in that they have succeeded.
