Former Hillary Clinton presidential campaign spokeswoman Karen Finney told ABC that if the Democrats make the 2018 midterm elections about impeaching President Donald Trump, the Republican base will get “fire[d] up” and it will end up hurting the Democrats.
Jonathan Karl of ABC said, “The president’s political team wants this to be the second Trump election. They want to put Trump on the ballot. They want to make it a referendum on Trump versus Democrats who want to try to impeach Trump. Do you want Trump or do you want him impeached? That is their argument.”
“The Trump political team believes you have to make the this a referendum on impeachment, a referendum on the president.”
Finney stated, “And the Democrats cannot let that happen, because I agree with you that is the way to fire up the base.”
