Nancy Pelosi’s dramatic statement about how they must move forward with articles of impeachment for Trump because the founders would want them to (or whatever hot mess she was babbling about) was just a hot mess.
Nobody was surprised that they’d move forward (Nadler has been bragging about doing it since 2017), and ultimately it came across as a Hail Mary of sorts. Mollie Hemingway noticed something else very telling coming from several reporters this morning:
Interesting to see several reporters this morning floating different ideas for how Democrats can get through or out of their impeachment mess.

Democrats are in trouble.
We know it.
They know it.
Even the media know it.
But you know, Ben Franklin and they have a heavy heart and stuff.
They should just vote to impeach him for defeating Hillary and get it over with.

At least that would be honest.
The see the train wreck for what it is

They've cooked themselves Mollie. Instead of trying to defeat Trump with sound policy and realistic ideas, they chose the nuclear option. It's blown up in their faces.

They're not reporters. They're campaign workers.

The impeachment is a team effort between Democrat politicians and journalists.
