Dems Struggling To Figure Out Next Move After Mueller Fiasco

One would think they would just go with the “Mueller? Russia? Conspiracy? Obstruction? What’s that?” defense, basically pretending this never happened. Just move on. Get over it. Focus on winning the 2020 elections and getting some things done in the House. Of course, this would cause their unhinged base, and a couple dozen unhinged elected Democrats, to freak out. They’ve rather built this house of cards and backed themselves into a corner

Democrats struggle to figure out next move against Trump after Mueller hearing falls flat

House Democrats are struggling to figure out their next move against President Trump after their highly anticipated hearing with Robert S. Mueller III fell flat, forcing some Democrats to second-guess their strategy while aggravating divisions in the party over impeachment.

Several centrist Democrats seized on the absence of a major revelation to argue it was time to end House investigations into whether Trump tried to obstruct the former special counsel’s probe and pivot to legislation.

“Anyone who was looking for the smoking gun yesterday didn’t get it,” said Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.), who ousted a Republican incumbent by fewer than 500 votes in last year’s midterm elections. “It’s time to move on and focus on getting some bills passed here that can get signed into law.”

But that plea had no effect on the pro-impeachment Democrats, who dug in, insisting that House oversight of Trump and his administration has been ineffective and pressed for launching proceedings.

In a closed-door caucus meeting Wednesday night, after Mueller’s testimony, proponents tried to convince House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to move ahead on impeachment, a step she has resisted. (snip)

The divisions over next steps come as House Democrats face criticism over their seven months of multiple investigations that have yielded little new information that would build public support for ousting Trump. Outside liberal groups are furious with Pelosi. Other Democrats, including several who worked for President Barack Obama, have expressed frustration with the House’s inability to hold accountable what they consider a lawless president and administration.

Moving on would be the smart thing. But, remember, 98 Democrats voted for impeachment the other week, which accounts for 42% of their House membership. And many of them, such as Nadler, Eric Swalwell, The Squad, a few others, are overly vocal on this, and keep it heavily in the public sphere. And the Democrat base, including the big wigs, such as Hollywood stars who give a lot of money, want this. Even though all this talk will help re-elect Trump. They should keep it up.

The article does spend a bunch of time saying that the hearing was a fiasco, essentially a full boat loss for Democrats, then we get to

Despite disappointment in Mueller’s testimony, Democrats feel pressure from the party’s left to move quickly, before the 2020 presidential campaign ramps up further.

And they’ve backed themselves into a corner with how much they’ve pushed it. They do not know how to get out of it. And many don’t. Congratulations on your 2020 win, Mr. Trump!

    The Democrats have only one option, and that’s to win the 2020 election.

    tRump will not be president at the end of 2019. Believe me. Mark my word. You tRumpitistas are whistling past the graveyard, and we all understand why. Your hero has committed felonies. — Jethro Bodine, January 5, 2019.

    Well, barring some unexpected health crisis, it looks like Mr Trump will wake up as President on January 20, 2021, and the odds seem to be getting better that he will wake up as President on January 20, 2025.
