Having an impeachment hearing on Trump is terrible for the democratic candidates at this moment. The news cycle is going to cover Trump for the next several months non stop, with no time for candidates to put their ideas out. I think this is a move to secure Biden as the nominee, since a Republican Senate would never remove Trump. Biden is the only candidate who, RIGHT NOW, has a huge following based on the coattails of Obama. Warren and Sanders are still trying to distinguish themselves from each other. Can you name the other candidates? I can’t. And that’s the goal of TPTB.
The question is: who chose this moment? The Republicans, to cover up the election with white noise, or the Democrats who want Biden and are afraid of socialism and change?
