"The impeachment trial of Donald Trump is the focus of media attention. But
does it really matter?

"Should workers and socialists more or less ignore the whole impeachment
proceedings? That is the view of many socialists, such as the one who said
it’s “solely infighting between corrupt elites” or another who said it’s
nothing but “a legalistic form of ruling class rivalry.” Even DSA took a
similar view when they contrast paying attention to the issue with
“continu(ing) to fight against the whole capitalist class.” Are they right?
While this sounds very militant, in fact it is a reformist point of view."
