Former Schumer Aide: Dems Will Lose the House in 2020 If Impeachment Is Pursued

Democrats are set to take control of the House soon and impeachment has been on the minds of many. But if it’s a path House Democrats ultimately pursue, they could pay a hefty price come 2020, says a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.


"If you try to impeach him without the Republicans coming on board to actually remove him, it’s a waste of time, it's a waste of political capital, and it will lead to the Democrats losing their majority and Donald Trump being reelected,” Christopher Hahn told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson.

Hahn said, however, he doesn’t believe Democrats will seek President Trump’s impeachment because Democratic leadership understands the best way to remove the president is at the ballot box in 2020, noting that there would need to be bipartisan agreement if that path were pursued. 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been against impeachment, arguing that it's "not someplace that I think we should go." 

"For those who want impeachment, that's not what our caucus is about," she told PBS last month. 

If impeachment proceedings began, "It would have to be bipartisan and the evidence would have to be so conclusive," she added. 


"I believe that whatever we do, we have a responsibility to first and foremost to unify the nation," Pelosi has said.

Hahn argued that the best strategy Democrats can pursue to take down Trump would be through investigations so that it's more difficult for him to be reelected. 

"Barring some major revelation in the Mueller report, I don't think you will see impeachment on the agenda for the next Congress," he said.
