The Democrats seem determined to impeach President Trump without a single Republican Congressman or Senator offering support for their reckless assault. This hyper-partisan, ill-considered course of action won’t punish the president—who only seems to gain strength from the other side’s impeachment obsession—but it will punish the country at large, and damage public faith in our institutions.

The Democrats stand no chance of removing Trump from office—they’ll never get the two-thirds vote they need in the Republican-dominated Senate, so it’s hard to see what they hope to accomplish.

Most analysts suggest the Democrats mean to paralyze the nation for weeks in the vain hope they’ll diminish support for his re-election bid next year. If that’s their thinking, then the Dems are guilty of precisely the same approach they impute to Trump in the first Article of Impeachment: abusing power by putting their own narrow political interests ahead of the country’s good.
