We’re 100 percent certain that President Trump isn’t going to take Jonah Goldberg’s advice to just admit there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine’s president and apologize, but hey, it’s an option to consider.

Can we just say that we don’t think Rep. Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff is looking for an apology down in his top-secret bunker?

Goldberg writes at National Review:

In l’affaire Ukraine, the president is guilty as charged. And the best strategy for him to avoid impeachment by the House and perhaps even removal by the Senate is to admit it, apologize, and let voters make their own judgment. It’s also the best way to fend off a disaster for Senate Republicans.

This is why the smartest Trump defenders are counseling the president to simply admit the obvious: There was a quid pro quo, and the president’s phone call fell short of perfection, but nothing he did is an impeachable offense.

I disagree with those who say that the allegations against Trump are not impeachable. But, politically, apologizing could forestall impeachment by giving politicians and voters a safe harbor: “It was wrong, but he said he’s sorry. Move on.” The longer the president defends a lie, the more Americans will resent being lied to.

So, what do you think? Bill Clinton asked the country for forgiveness and liberated his supporters to say the country should “move on.”

Yeah, considering they’ve been plotting Donald Trump’s impeachment even before he was inaugurated, we don’t know as an apology would soften any hearts in The Resistance.

Democrats and NeverTrumpers want impeachment and won’t settle for an apology. Look how long MoveOn has lasted, and its origin was to forget about Bill Clinton’s impeachment and just “move on.”
