Impeachment is a stain on Trump for ever, one he'll never get over. It's almost like he provoked it with his incessant lying and obstruction. It had to be done. There's an election in less than a year, so even if the House impeachment goes to the Senate it's irrelevant what tact the Senate takes. the voters in the US will vote against Trump, rather than for the Democrats and it will fall to the electoral College again to interpret the democratic will of the people. Deja vu anyone ?
