Does anyone besides Nancy Pelosi truly think impeaching Donald Trump again is a smart move now?
Yes, he may deserve it — and much more. But with less that two weeks to go before Joe Biden is sworn in as U.S. president, is it worth getting Trump’s base all riled up again? Is it worth losing more lives?
Trump seems to be somewhat contrite now in the aftermath of the Capitol incident and the deaths of five people. He has finally acknowledged Biden’s victory, has pledged a “smooth transition” and says he will not attend the inauguration ceremony.
The wise thing for Trump now would be to resign. But if he doesn’t and he feels any more cornered and isolated than he does now, he may be more unpredictable than ever.
The smart thing, in my view, is to let him finish his term, and let the Justice Department do its work afterward.
Agree or disagree?
