For months Democrats and #TheResistance have been demanding impeachment not only of Trump, for supposed Russia collusion, but also Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury during his confirmation testimony.

I didn’t expect to end up opposing the impeachment of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. When the news first broke that Blagojevich was charged, among other things, with attempting to “sell” Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat, I was inclined to follow the media and pundits in throwing the bum out based on...
