What does “matter” mean in this context? I was explicitly addressing the specific context of the argument that the current impeachment is contrived because Democrats were claimed to be in favor of impeachment from the beginning. My point definitely matters to that argument, and in fact, my comment demolishes that argument.
They demolish nothing. Just as the impeachment of Mr. Johnson came after repeated efforts by back benchers stands. Why? I have not argued every Democrat was for it from the beginning. Neither was ever Radical Republican. Nuance..really, you should try it.
My argument was…and is not absolutist.
I know this more nuance view of events, peppered by history, is not compliant to party talking points. It is what it is. I wish people took the very long view of history. It would be helpful.
