Trump will not be removed from office, but it’s still a win for the Democrats


President Donald Trump made history last December by being the third president to be impeached by the House. However, in the Senate, the articles of impeachment will fail.

It won’t be much of a shock to the public if Trump is acquitted of his crimes in a Republican-controlled Senate. As a matter of fact, it’s expected that the impeachment trial will rule in favor of Trump.

So what’s the point of the impeachment trial?

It’s simple. The Democratic party is using the impeachment trial as a political strategy to win future presidential elections.

According to The New York Times, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent the articles of impeachment last week along with seven impeachment prosecutors to the Senate.

With that, the impeachment trial has begun and, according to the Constitution, all of the senators become the jury.  

Here’s where the Democrat’s strategy comes to play. They are going to have every single Republican senator go on official record for voting to not remove a president that clearly abused his executive powers.

The Democratic party already has all of the Republican representatives in the House on record for voting to keep a president that nearly started a war with Iran.

Having these politicians on an official record helps the Democratic party have a huge advantage in future elections because the Republicans won’t have any response against something that’s on the official record.

An example of how official records have worked in the past will require looking back at the Civil War era. 

President Abraham Lincoln is widely known as the liberator of slaves and for writing the Emancipation Proclamation. However, President Lincoln went on an official record to say that if he could unite the North and South without freeing a single slave, he would do it.

Now, that paints a different picture of President Lincoln and with that statement, it changes the whole purpose of the Civil War. 

The Democratic party is aware the articles of impeachment will fail in the Senate but the end goal of this whole trial is to prevent another incompetent president from entering the White House.
