"At the end of the day, it's most important to me to see that Donald Trump is not a re-elected president, and I will do my utmost to make sure that does not happen."
"But if – and this is If – if for the next year, for a year and a half, to go straight to the heart of the elections, then Congress will speak only about Trump and Trump, Trump, Trump and Mueller, Mueller, Mueller and we will not talk about health care, we will not talk We're not talking about combating climate change, we're not talking about sexism and racism and homophobia, and all the issues that affect ordinary Americans worry me, which brings Trump to his advantage.
Sanders said he supported the house in investigating some of the seemingly obtrusive individuals' behavior by Trump's documented by Müller and that, once this investigation is completed, he was open to a reassessment. [1
1) The waiver of the results of the Müller report is unacceptable for the party's political base.
2) The impeachment becomes Trump allow himself to paint himself as a victim of nonpartisan Democrats who want to get rid of him because they have lost an election.  The Republicans of the Senate will simply not give up Trump in bulk to ensure Trump will not be dismissed from office.
Given these three competing realities, Sanders position – we must continue to research, but we can not build the entire case of Democrats against Trump in 2020 with a view to impeachments politically immaculate place.
Although Sanders did not mention the 2016 campaign or Hillary Clinton's strategy against Trump in this race, it is clear that his position on Trump and impeachment will be affected by this competition.
2016 Clinton The underlying (and sometimes overlying) message was like this: Trump is terrible and you'll never vote for him. And I'm the only other person standing for the president.
In short, the year 2016 race became a personality contest between two people who voters did not like. So they chose what they thought would change things more.
Sanders is clearly suspicious – and rightly so – of repeating this race. Up to this point, this part of his impeachment decision really did strike a chord:
[ I f for the next year, for a year and a half, into the middle of the election that Congress is talking about, Trump and Trump , Trump, Trump and Mueller, Mueller, Mueller, and we are not talking about health care, we are not talking about raising the minimum wage to a living wage, we & # 39; When we are not talking about the fight against climate change, we are not talking about sexism and racism and homophobia and about all the problems that affect ordinary Americans. What worries me is the fact that Trump benefits. "
That's a correct assessment, Democrats do not need to convince voters that Donald Trump is not presidential or their thing, most of them – outside of Trump's hardcore fans – already believe that, what the Democrats are doing must prove to voters that Trump's policies are dangerous in relation to the issues that matter to them, whether in his call to abolish the Affordable Care Act or his decision to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement, or
What Sanders claims is that you beat Trump on politics, not on politics personality, and if Democrats are struggling over the next 18 months to see if Trump is in for his decidedly incommensurate behavior in the country In the course of the investigation of Müller should be charged, they allow the race, to take care of personalities, not about politics.  There is reason to believe that Sanders believes right. In the midterms of 2018, today's spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi (California) insisted that Democratic House candidates speak relentlessly of health care, not Trump. The Pelosi mantra was: Focus on what Trump's policy is, not who Trump is. And it worked. Health care was by far the main theme in the 2018 exit elections, and this group voted 52 points for the Democratic candidates.
