I only see this entire impeachment process benefiting the Trump re-election campaign. If you already believe in the world view that Trump has sold - of him as a political outsider standing up to the Democrats and the fake liberal media yada yada yada - then this confirms it. He’s already weaponising the impeachment to embolden that opinion among his base.
This really does feel like a huge moment in the era of post truth. Undeniable facts are denied, publicly and we’re left with people simply picking their side.
Like others have said, Republicans have all fallen in line and chosen power over the truth, he’ll be acquitted in the senate and I can’t see how any Democrat beats him in 2020.
Trump said it well himself:
“It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached,” he said, to cheers. “This lawless partisan impeachment is a political suicide march for the Democrat party.”
