As Congress returns from recess, impeachment talk is once again in the air. Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want a vote on impeachment because she recognizes that it is so unpopular outside the deep blue districts where Trump hatred rules that it could unseat many of the swing-district Democrats whose 2018 victories handed her the speaker’s gavel.
