Lot of talk about the possible impeachment of Donald Trump removes important talk time for the Democrats, believes the editor.
Much to suggest that there will be an impeachment against the president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, at the beginning of the new year. But even if it is the president who, where appropriate, will stand trial, the case can especially cost the Democrats dearly.
It assesses the Anders Agner, who is the editor at netmediet Kongressen.com.
- This case is not entirely without risks for the Democrats. Much of the time, they could have used to talk about themselves and what they want, are instead used at Trump, he says.
A phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenskij, in the summer is the reason that Trump the risk of having a rigsret in the new year.
the President is criticized for attempting to push Zelenskij to examine Joe Biden and his son for corruption.
the Democrat Biden is one of the Trumps political ærkerivaler and among the favorites to be the Democratic candidate in the presidential election next year.
on Friday recommended a majority in the legal affairs Committee in the House of Representatives to formally initiate an impeachment against the president. It is supposed, that such a will could be led at the beginning of the new year.
Even if Donald Trump ends up in such a case, it is not very probable, that his will take big damage from it, believe editor Anders Agner.
- Trumps chances to survive an impeachment is good, because there is a majority in the Senate behind him, which looks to be intact. As long as it is the situation, there is nothing to be afraid of Trumps is concerned, says Anders Agner.
According to him, used the Democrats precious talk time, up to the recent presidential elections in 2016 to talk bad about Donald Trump. It led to the Democrats ' own priorities and policy objectives did not come out clearly to the people.
- There is not a single one of Trumps voters, who have been gripped by a desire to vote democratic instead. If he - as expected - not be selected, he will get another opportunity to say that he is the people's man against the system.
- the Democrats have spent incredibly much time on it here, and if Trump is not being removed, they may choose to use the time to talk about themselves instead, " says Anders Agner.
A possible impeachment against Trump will be the third against a sitting american president.
