On Thursday, CNN contributor Van Jones appeared on CNN's "OutFront" to talk about the Democrats' efforts to impeach President Donald Trump, acknowledging that the Left is going to end up regretting their decisions.
“Yeah, it’s interesting, you know — it’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process because for some Republicans it makes them want to rally around the flag. 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,” Jones noted. “I was like, ‘Leave Bill Clinton alone.’ So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation.”
“If they don’t do something, their own base is going to feel disappointed and feel like maybe Trump gets away too much,” he continued. “If you don’t do the impeachment, though, you divide the country further, you take the oxygen away from your candidates, and you still don’t solve the problem of interference. Just because you impeach a president, it doesn’t mean you don’t still have the problem of foreign interference. It’s a big mess.”

Jones seems to be right considering President Trump's approval rating has actually increased since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced her impeachment inquiry.
According to the new Hill-Harris poll, President Trump's rating has increased to a shocking 49%. This poll was generated after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry against President Trump so this poll is a good indication of what the American people think about the impeachment agenda.
Check out what The Hill reported:
President Trump’s approval ticked up to 49 percent — its highest mark this year, according to a new Hill-HarrisX survey released on Wednesday.
The figure marks a 2-point increase from a Sept. 11-12 poll, but a 2-point decrease from its previous peak of 51 percent in August 2018.
Trump's disapproval rating, meanwhile, dropped to 51 percent, which marks his lowest level so far this year.
The nationwide survey was conducted on Sept. 28 and 29, less than a week after House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump over concerns raised in a whistleblower's complaint about the president's communications with Ukraine.
Last week, House Speaker Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry against President Trump based off of a second-hand politically biased whistleblower's claim that President Trump bribed Ukraine's President with military funds to start an investigation into Joe Biden for getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was investigating his son.
This move by the Speaker is an obvious political hit job with the sole intention of removing our duly elected president from office.
The whistleblower claimed that President Trump set up a quid pro quo agreement regarding military aid with Ukraine and in return, Ukraine would investigate Joe Biden. Pelosi used the whistleblower's claim to begin an impeachment inquiry, however the transcript of the call which was released the next day, revealed that President Trump did not leverage military aid in any way. The Democrats started an impeachment inquiry based on lies.
