CNN’s Jeff Zeleny threw some cold water on impeachment this week.
He said that if you go out into the country and speak to Democrat voters, they don’t think impeachment is a winning issue for 2020.
It’s amazing that someone on CNN got something right.

Dems Think Impeachment Is a Loser Politically, CNN Correspondent Says
CNN senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny on Tuesday said 2020 candidates and Democratic voters are avoiding impeachment talk because they think it will hinder their election chances.
“You talk to some Democratic voters out there, as I have,” Zeleny said on Inside Politics. “And you watch what Democratic presidential candidates are talking about, it’s not this. They do not believe this is a winner for them in November.”
Zeleny added that candidates will be unable to avoid the issue, predicting the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump will lead the political conversation next year.
“It’s going to be a split screen,” Zeleny said. “In many cases in January, it may be the dominating screen. So this will impact the 2020 campaign.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell is already changing his tune on the subject.

Swalwell Changes Tune On Impeachment
California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell on Tuesday said he has not made a decision yet about whether President Donald Trump should be impeached, after previously calling for his impeachment.
Swalwell’s comments come after House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff declined to say whether or not he supports impeaching Trump and his removal from office by the Senate. In November, Swalwell said on Twitter “I am one of them. I called for impeachment the day @realDonaldTrump told @GStephanopoulos he would again take help from a foreign government to win an election. That was June. Little did any of us know he was already trying to do that with Ukraine.”
