1) I'm wondering if any of the "moderate"-presenting GOP Senators and Congresspeople will jump on the impeachment train as things get worse. Because it seems like a good strategy.
2) You vote against Trump, you earn the coveted "bipartisan, country-above party" title that will make the press -- and even some Dems -- FAWN over you. You clear him out, no way Pence runs, and you declare for 2020.
3) You get to run as the bipartisan hero running against a Dem candidate who's going to be smeared as a radical socialist no matter what. YOU become the return to normalcy candidate for nostalgics and racists, and people who just don't like Warren's tooooone.
4) There's not going to be a Trumpist rump in the party - once he's gone, because once this stops being about ways to make money and dodge prosecution, he is OUT of politics. The GOP is so top-down they're cancelling primaries,they'll protect your Senate seat, etc.
5) So what if the MAGAts are angry, they'll fall in line. It's all theater for them. If I'm Tom Cotton, I'm getting some friends together and cutting side deals with Schumer right now.
6) Otherwise, you're coming in after four years of having to toady up to Trump, diminishing you, or after a Dem, who can tar you for mot doing anything vs. Trump after ALL HIS SHIT IS DECLASSIFIED.
