Micheal Goodwin thinks she rushed.
What a difference a day could have made! Imagine if Nancy Pelosi had held her impeachment fire for 24 hours.
Then she would have had the transcript of President Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. Even a quick read would have told her it was not as advertised.
She would have learned there was no threat from Trump and no talk of a quid pro quo involving foreign aid in exchange for an investigation of Joe Biden. By the time she finished the five pages, Pelosi would have realized that the media’s promise of a smoking gun was a false promise.
With the facts in front of her, the House speaker would have wisely put off Tuesday’s doomsday impeachment push and waited for a more compelling issue to justify an historic effort to overturn the 2016 presidential election.
