'Nixon remains the Democrats’ nirvana. He resigned to avoid impeachment and virtually certain removal. Its lessons, however, are that overwhelming evidence and bipartisan consensus are required.

With Trump, the Democrats have neither.'
Here's an excerpt from the article. (read the whole thing)

"First, they lack the evidence to make an impeachment case beyond their base.
For most Americans, the protracted Mueller investigation’s bland conclusion and Mueller’s poor testimony closed that case; pursuing it further looks less like evidence and more like vendetta.
Their latest effort regarding Trump’s Ukraine phone call is even less developed, making their move appear all the more precipitous.
Second, today’s Democrats control only the House — and not overwhelmingly. This means that they could start the process of formally impeaching Trump, but without hope of Senate conviction.
Third, when Republicans moved against Bill Clinton, they were nearly united.

To get to their sure defeat, today’s Democrats will cause deep fractures between their left and moderate members.
Those fractures will translate into tough, and likely costly, votes for their moderates in both bodies.
For all these reasons, Republicans will hold, Democrats will split, and the result will be de facto bipartisan exoneration.

With such an outcome, the American people will side with Trump, just as they did with Clinton."
