Impeachment is on the table. Nunes wants to impeach Rosenstein and Wray

There's been a lot of talk that the Republicans are going to run against Democrats by accusing them of planning to impeach Trump. The fact is that Democrats are not running on impeachment and are pretty much avoiding the topic as much as possible.

I don't know how I feel about that. If they think that's a good way to win, I won't second guess them. But I do hope they don't decide that it would be better not to hold public hearings if they take over the congress in order that nobody in the country thinks they care about anything but some 10 point plan to raise taxes. The "appease Trump voters at all costs" strategy has serious limits. Indeed, I can't think of anything more self-defeating.

Meanwhile, there's this:

That's what's happening in Fox world. And they also still spend a huge portion of their time talking about locking up Hillary Clinton.

We may be about to see if we can actually have a country in which half the people live in a world in which Donald Trump is not the president and we are just having anodyne policy debates about taxes and banking regulations while the other half lives in a world in which they back President Donald Trump's power struggle with the DOJ, FBI and intelligence services to cover up his criminal corruption so they can enact white nationalist policies.

Which side would be the one living in reality?
