CNN host Van Jones admitted that the Democrats are in a "lose-lose situation" on pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment, arguing that huge media attention on such efforts "take the oxygen away from [2020 Democratic presidential] candidates." 

Jones told anchor Erin Burnett on "Outfront," that “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, suddenly Clinton was my best friend,” he continued.

“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,” Jones, a former Obama official, added.

“If you go through with impeachment, though, you divide the country further, you take the oxygen away from your candidates, and you still don’t solve the problem of foreign 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.”

But recent polls reflected mixed results on the public's appetite for impeaching Trump.

According to a recent CBS News poll, 55 percent in favor of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, while 45 percent not supporting it.

The same CBS poll also says 58 percent say Trump does not deserve to be impeached or that it’s “too soon to say.”

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump after she caved in to pressure from Democrats.

Pelosi said, "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."

Veteran conservative actor Jon Voight described the Democrat's impeachment move as "evil" and a "war against truths."

Voight, one of the few openly pro-Trump stars in Hollywood, called upon America to “stand with our President Trump in a time of such evil words.”

In a video uploaded to his Twitter account late Thursday, Voight describes the Democratic push to impeach Trump and the current political climate as “war.”
