Impeachment and what follows? Let our experts help if you are covering!September 30, 20191 min read
For President Donald Trump…he’s living in interesting times. There’s an irony to that statement, as the so-called Chinese proverb ‘May you live in interesting times’ which has been purported as a centuries old curse on the English has no actual source or history. It too is fake news. But painfully accurate in these times of political turmoil in Washington.
What’s not fake is the talks of impeachment. The issue has traction and it looks as if the first steps of the process will soon move forward.
The President and his supporters are digging in and pushing back.
This will be an issue that dominates the headlines for months, if not longer. It may even stretch into the election cycle for 2020.
There will be results, consequences and reactions each step along the way. The President has even indicated the division will be akin to civil war. While not likely, the splitting of the American voter will deepen and it will be interesting to see, once all the dust has settled, who benefits at the ballot box in 2020.
