Simple Logic

There is no serious question that Trump should be impeached. Impeaching Trump is the right thing for the House of Representatives to do. Many Democrats, following the lead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have felt that impeaching Trump might backfire because senate Republicans, who have consistently tolerated and defended Trump’s transgressions, would refuse to convict him and remove him from office, and that a great many voters would then think that Trump had been exonerated. 

Refusing to convict Trump would be the wrong thing for Republicans to do. If Democrats refuse to impeach Trump, they would be failing to do the right thing because Republicans would do the wrong thing, which is illogical, and that’s a matter of simple logic.
