Van Jones of CNN is not a conservative. In fact, he is pretty far to the left.
Yet even he is saying the Democrats are putting themselves into a horrible position with this whole impeachment thing.
He correctly states that they are in a ‘catch-22’ of sorts.
CNN’s Van Jones: ‘Democrats Are In a Lose-Lose Situation’ With Impeachment
CNN political commentator Van Jones warned Democrats are putting themselves into a position where there might not be a victory for them as they go full-steam ahead with President Trump’s impeachment.
Jones, who was a special adviser to former President Barack Obama, said the impeachment inquiry will push Republicans into rallying behind Trump.
“It’s a tricky thing. The impeachment process, because for some Republicans it makes them want to rally around the flag. Now I remember when I was anti-Bill Clinton from the Left in the ‘90s and then they tried to impeach him, and suddenly Clinton was my best friend and I was, like, ‘Leave Bill Clinton alone,'” Jones said on Thursday.
“So I think, you know, you get crosscurrents in this thing. At the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation, and if they don’t do something, their own base is going to feel disappointed and you feel like maybe Trump gets away too much. If you go through with the impeachment though, you can divide the country further, you take the oxygen away from your candidates, and you still don’t solve the problem of foreign interference,” Jones said.

We don’t agree with Van Jones very often, but he makes a great point here.
If Democrats pull the trigger on this, it will start a fire they won’t be able to put out.
Trump supporters are already angry about the way Democrats and the media have gone after him relentlessly since day one.
